Fat Bob’s changed their catering menu to add individualized boxes which are perfect for events looking to distance. “By far the most popular option we have seen for events such as weddings is the use of our food trucks – Brisket Daddy has made MANY wedding appearances this season.  Guests can choose their dinner option, approach the truck and wait for their individualized dinner. Above all, the food truck offers not only a safe food option for guests but a fun, unique experience not super popular at receptions.  Another perk, we can arrive to any location big or small around WNY so perfect for backyard gatherings that have moved from large event spaces.” Reach out to Bridget to learn more in their directory listing above!
