New Sawgrass Events catering business now offering its services


A new caterer in Ponte Vedra has opened for business.

Operating under the umbrella of Hilton Garden Inn Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra, Sawgrass Events is now offering its services for a variety of events.

Ted Hayes, the food and beverage director at Hilton Garden Inn, said the caterer offers "anything anybody can think of" for special events that are both offsite and onsite, such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate ceremonies, bar mitzvahs and more.

"We just started roughly six months ago," he said. "We do a lot of things inside the hotel, we've done a lot of rehearsal dinners for weddings, and we do corporate functions almost every other day as far as work luncheons, seminars, cocktail events and things of that nature."

Hayes said the catering arm of Hilton Garden Inn has also serviced a handful of office deliveries in the community and dropped off pre-ordered sandwich and salad platters for small luncheons.

The caterer offers seasonal fruits and berries, fresh yogurt with a variety of mixings, bagels, croissants, muffins, coffee cakes and more for breakfast. For lunch, the caterer offers a build-your-own sandwich display with roasted turkey, honey ham and other meats along with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, onions, banana peppers and pickle spears. Barbecue pulled pork sliders, grilled chicken teriyaki skewers and cheese tortellini are also available on the lunch menu.

Customers can enjoy seasoned chicken, roasted pork loin, pumpkin ravioli, roasted salmon and more for dinner. The dessert menu features key lime pie, assorted cheesecakes, peach cobbler, tiramisu, chocolate layer cake and warm apple crumble.

In addition to food and drinks, Sawgrass Events also offers electronics for use at events and gatherings, such as LCD projectors, screens, cordless microphones, speaker phones, televisions, DVD/Blue Ray players and more.
