For more than 30 years, Simcha catering has lived by a core value to "treat every customer like they are our only customer." This enduring value guides us as we face the difficult and ongoing challenge of responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
In February, we implemented policies to follow all current guidance from government and local health authorities. Between March through August, Simcha pivoted to offer take-out service only and did not provide full-service catering. Following the reopening, we exerted an exorbitant amount of time, money, and effort to implement additional safety precautions to responsiblyand carefully offer in-person catering services for a dozen or so events.
This week, we learned that a guest tested positive for COVID one day following a small gathering we catered at an out of town event. While everyone at Simcha has tested negative, we cannot risk our staff, clients, or guests' safety and well-being.
With a heavy heart, we are announcing effective immediately, Simcha Catering will not accept new requests for in-person catering for the next unforeseeable future. We will, however, fulfill all current obligations for the handful of events we have previously scheduled.
Simcha Catering understands that weddings, brit milahs and baby namings, holidays, and other gatherings continue despite the pandemic. With this in mind, we are pivoting yet again and resume offering our catering services via drop-off and curbside pick-up only. We plan to evaluate and monitor the situation, with much hope and anticipation that our decision is a temporary one. We have many great ideas on expanding our menu to provide catering without the need for onsite staff.
