What People Are Saying About Us
“Southern Comforts Catering and Event Planning not only made the most delicious food for our rehearsal dinner and wedding but they also made the whole weekend seamless, stress free and perfect! "Catering and Event Planning" doesn't come close to describing what all they did for us. They should add decorating, table setting, candle lighting, drink serving, food prepping, cleaning up, packing to-go boxes, stress managing, and many other verbs to their list! From day one of planning, Julie and her staff were at every meeting and in constant contact with my family and me. When other vendors were being less than cooperative, Julie helped us communicate with them and was professional in doing so. On the day of our wedding, the Southern Comforts staff worked tirelessly to make sure everything was set up the way we wanted it. We did not have to worry about anything and were able to enjoy our special day. Two years later I am still getting compliments on how beautiful and delicious the food was at our wedding and in my opinion this company is second to none!”...

“Southern Comforts of Lenoir has consistently supplied us with top quality food and service, at reasonable prices, for both our business and personal needs. No order appears to be too large or too small for them to handle professionally and graciously. We can highly recommend them.”

“When my daughter got married in May, we hired Julie Zoller of Southern Comforts Catering & Event Planning to cater the wedding reception. I didn't want to be the MOB who was so stressed in the final week leading up to the wedding, worrying about last minute details, that I couldn't enjoy the blessed event! One of my first questions to Julie was, "How much of this can you do?" Her reply was, "All of it." And she did! From food to flowers to wedding cake to tent rental and set-up to hiring a DJ and wedding director, she took care of it all. The only thing I had to do was show up and enjoy the beautiful day! I highly recommend Julie and her firm to plan your event. She listens to what you want and then delivers, with an eye for detail and creativity. It will be beautiful and you will be able to enjoy the day!”

“If you're looking for a southern-style home-cooked meal, look no further! I've used Southern Comforts for years for meals for both my family and my Southern Cultures class at school. Every dish has been outstanding. Southern Comforts is not just a meal, it's an experience in itself!”…”

“Bushels of thanks to Southern Comforts' terrific job at our pre-anniversary party. From Comfort Caviar to miniature hot ham sandwiches, everything was wonderful. Thank you so much for traveling to San Diego, CA to help make this whole weekend one we will always remember.”

“I really love a good party - well appointed to the last detail, with scrumptious food. Creating this scenario can be a lot of work. From my own wedding reception to special events with friends, I have enjoyed having Southern Comforts to rely on. Creative and impeccable food preparation is their specialty and I find myself relaxing amid the chaos, knowing things will be just right. I feel fortunate that Southern Comforts is a mere phone call away to prepare their signature dishes or even my own recipes. Having that extra pair of hands frees me to enjoy my guests enjoying themselves.”

“I’ve used Southern Comforts numerous times to cater meals for meetings, and everything is always delicious. Most recently, our Board of Directors and Executive Staff enjoyed a wonderful dinner complete with a garden salad, meatloaf, Southern green beans, mashed potatoes, corn casserole, sweet potato casserole, yeast rolls and banana pudding for dessert — everything was excellent!”

“Hey Julie! I just wanted to thank you SO MUCH for everything you guys did for our wedding. The food was delicious and you were very accommodating to the last minute changes we had to make. I was very impressed by how hands on you were personally. Your staff really went above our expectations and we had a really lovely time despite the weather. I would definitely recommend Southern Comforts Catering for any event.”
Sincerely, Ryan & Amy Mistretta
“In June 2015 we had our daughter's wedding at Brown Mountain Beach Resort, beautiful and rustic. Julie Zoller and Southern Comforts provided the food for the rehearsal dinner as well as the reception. Everything was delicious, from the cocktail hour with a biscuits bar w/ham and jellies and veggie cups to the family style dinner. Our favorite was Julie's Shrimp and Grits. But the dessert table topped it all, with her Southern Sin Cake and the Best Chocolate Cake ever and don't forget the Blackberry Cobbler and cookies. With all this, Julie also came though and saved me from a last minute floral decorating dilemma with a design for the 11 foot fireplace mantel and cake table. I can't thank her enough! Would totally recommend Southern Comforts for any event.”

“The Caldwell County Department of Social Services has utilized Southern Comforts to cater The Joyce P. Edwards Children’s Charity Cup for many years. The day of the event ran very smoothly with organized staff who are gracious and efficient. The food is impeccable! Julie Zoller is very professional and is highly recommended for events.”
April Sisk

“For as long as I can remember, every event that had Julie Zoller’s name behind it never failed to amaze me. I got lucky having her as my mother! Especially when it came to things like birthdays, holidays, or just good ol’ fun. The love and thought she puts in every detail of an event is incredible; she will get in your head and turn all of your ideas into something spectacular. I can remember all of the birthdays and holidays, etc, over the years and there is nothing more that I could ask for. Even if it isn’t an actual “event”, my Mom will make you feel like it is. She has used her talent and passion to make everyone feel special for any occasion.”
