About Zingerman's Catering
Since we opened our doors in 1982 we have been bringing the Zingerman’s experience to full-flavored food lovers all over Michigan and the Midwest, reaching as far as Chicago, Cleveland, and Indiana.
We’ve had the pleasure to take part in many fabulous celebrations from weddings to corporate events, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs to birthday parties and tailgates to summer picnics. Whatever the special occasion we’ll make sure the food is looking and tasting its absolute best.
We pride ourselves on treating our guests like royalty (in fact, we’ve written a book about it). With Zingerman’s Catering and Events, you can be confident that the service will be five stars.
We think entertaining should be dramatic and fun. Whether it’s Chrysler Hot Wheels racing around a track on the Chrysler buffet, miniature Michigan football players lined up on the gridiron for a tailgate buffet, or the Eiffel Tower looking down on a French cheese display, we’ll bring our creativity and cleverness to the table. We’ll work with you to design a look and feel for your buffet that is as visually stunning as it is enticing to the taste buds.
Our event planner will make your event worry free and allow you to receive your guests in style. Not only will we bring the food, but we’ll also take care of all the details. Starting with the menu, we’ll seek out the finest ingredients and recipes to create a menu that suits you and your guests.
We will help you find a venue that’s perfect, pick florals that wow, organize the entertainment, and coordinate all your rentals. Give us a call and we’ll work with you to create an event your guests will be talking about for years to come.

Catering Delivery Policy
DELIVERY WINDOW & SET-UP
Weekday deliveries 10 am and later are scheduled using a one-hour window.
Weekday morning and weekend deliveries are scheduled using a half-hour window*. Our drivers aim to arrive in the first half of that window and may arrive as early as the beginning of the window. If our driver expects to arrive in the latter half of the window, they will let you know by phone.
Our service is complete: our knowledgeable delivery drivers not only guarantee the prompt arrival of your order within the quoted window, we will also bring the order inside the building and even set it up.
Accurate delivery addresses and contact information are a crucial part of offering you the best possible service.
Please have your exact delivery location (including building, suite, and room number) ready when you place your order, along with the name and phone number of a contact person who will be present at the location and time of delivery.
Return trips for clean-up, drop-off of extra food, etc. will incur an additional delivery charge, and very large deliveries may require extra service.
Speak with any Catering salesperson and we’ll be happy to help arrange your service requests!
*One-hour windows may also apply on holidays, UM football Saturdays, and special events such as UM graduation
