Some of our happy clients…

Off-site Meetings


“You guys did an amazing job with hosting our staff meeting last week. We felt extremely comfortable, relaxed, and that in turn, gave us the energy to focus and put all of our energy into what turned out to be a very productive gathering.

I must also mention that working with Danielle and Shawanda was amazing. They were super friendly, warm and very personable. As an admin, they made my life so much easier! The catering was superb as well. Sometimes it gets tricky to accommodate so many dietary restrictions, while still maintaining taste and flavor. Your selections did just that!”

Sondra Shearrill, Action For Healthy Kids


“The whole team at Catalyst Ranch made for a stress-free wedding planning process… All of our guests were pleasantly surprised by how unique our wedding was. Everyone especially let loose with the built-in photo booth where they could really show their true colors… I would recommend this place for couples who want a unique experience that reflects their quirky personalities.”
Crystal, Yelp! Review


“I couldn’t have asked for a better group to have on-site – so hands on down to every detail, all while doing it with a smile on their face. It was truly a pleasure to work with such a dedicated and talented team. I hope there will be more opportunities in the future to work together.”
