Old North State Catering is Cooking!
We are pleased to announce Old North State Catering as the Official Catering Partner of the WRAL Freedom Balloon Fest. This means VIP treatment for everybody!
Event attendees and our VIP guests at Bennett Bunn Plantation will be treated to the southern enhanced fare from a group that's fast becoming one of the Triangle's premier event catering companies - Old North State Catering.
"We wanted to keep it good and keep it local," says event organizer and pilot Brian Hoyle. "As a family event with guests coming from all over, we wanted local, wholesome food our VIP guests would remember. When we found Old North State Catering, we found a unique partner who could also deliver great quality to the masses. It's a win-win for everyone. They've got major event experience, but you'll still be served by one of the owners. We are very happy to have Chris, Allison, Chef Joe and team taking care of everyone who comes out Bennett Bunn Plantation this Memorial Day weekend."
Word is getting around about Old North State Catering. You may have tasted their award winning cuisines at community events such as Beericana (Holly Springs) and Savor Fuquay-Varina (winner, People's Choice and Viva la Difference Awards). ONS has received accolades from Cary Magazine's western Wake readers for the "Maggy" Awards. And, if you sampled the "fair favorite" bananas Foster at the 2014 NC State Fair, you've run into Old North State's alter ego the Rajun' Cajun.
"From the first time we met with Brian Hoyle," said Chris Wrenn. "We knew that the WRAL Freedom Balloon Fest was a great fit for Old North State Catering. I cannot imagine a better way to spend Memorial Day weekend than with your family, honoring the selfless Hero’s of our nation, on a beautiful plantation, seeing hot air balloons, and of course enjoying great food!”
Freedom Balloon Fest is committed to "keeping it local." Old North State Catering was founded and operated by Fuquay-Varina natives Chris and Allison Wrenn who teamed up with their good friend and award-winning Executive Chef Joe Fasy. The team is active in the NC Department of Agriculture's Got To Be NC programs to use locally grown and raised products. And everything's prepped and cooked on-site in their 42 foot custom commercial kitchen trailer (award winning in its own right). So, come hungry to sample what Old North State Catering has cooking.
While the menu hasn't been finalized yet, Old North State Catering is planning a little something for every taste - even some vegetarian options could be coming your way. One thing is for sure, it will be fresh and local.
