Corporate Events Are Our Bread & Butter
Looking to organize a company holiday celebration or a grand opening, or require refreshments for a crowd of 5,000? A La Carte Events & Catering is here to assist you!
We're renowned as one of the top catering companies in Houston and provide exceptional corporate catering services as well.
Even though corporate events appear similar to private events at first glance, corporate planners have distinct requirements and objectives. At A La Carte Events & Catering, we understand your priorities:
- Flawless execution from set up to breakdown,
- Professional, thoughtful, prompt service,
- Delectable cuisine,
- Creative collaboration throughout the event planning process,
- Flexible, easy to work with, and easy to get ahold of planners, and
- Guidance to get the most out of your event budget.
Our planners strive to streamline your event planning and implementation processes to ensure maximum convenience for you. We understand you have other priorities.
Some of A La Carte's planners came from the corporate marketing side, and bring an eye for branding to your event by
- Incorporating your logo into the buffet cards and menus,
- Coordinating linens, florals, china and rentals to align with your brand, and
- Customizing the menu to suit your brand's and your guests' preferences.
It's worth noting that a significant number of our business clients are located outside of Texas and don't personally attend their Houston events.
We are the preferred partner for organizing high-class events for various luxury retailers in the city, in locations such as The Galleria, Highland Village, River Oaks District, The Woodlands, Cinco Ranch, and Sugar Land.
Luxury retailers are just a fraction of the types of businesses that we collaborate with for corporate events. Our clientele also includes:
- International energy companies,
- Industry associations,
- Prestigious law firms,
- Worldwide experiential marketing agencies,
- Major professional sports leagues, and
- Local businesses of all sizes.
What Type of Corporate Event Are You Planning?

That experience translates into delighted guests. For example, did you know that pipeline engineers love Cookies & Cream Chex Mix? It was served during a conference snack break, and multiple guests asked for the recipe!

Theater, with 150 guests, we moved to Silver Street Studios and expanded the guest count to 1,500.
Our involvement in these events was extensive. Our team curated custom food pairings, scouted suitable venues, and sourced all necessary elements including security, rentals, specialty rentals, A/V equipment, staging, branded disposables, beverage mixers, and tons and tons of ice.
Additionally, we provided all of the staff: TABC-certified bartenders, barbacks, servers, chefs & sous chefs, plus staff to assist before, during, and after the event.
We take pride in working behind the scenes to ensure a successful event for you.
