Hi Kathy,

I just wanted to let you know that the kids/coaches/parents all had an AMAZING time at the Express game tonight. The food was great, and the kids loved it all. We really appreciated the setup and takedown as well.

Hi Kim - I only rave reviews for the wonderful dining experience - everything was very delicious, hot, and had a great selection, and Leanne and Danette, not sure about the spelling, were so gracious and pleasant and worked hard to keep everything flowing so well.

Many, many thanks for the great service and a very merry Christmas to everyone.

Hi Kim,

I hope you’re having a great morning so far. I just wanted to send you and your team a big thank you for assisting us with our BBQs this year. I had a great experience working with your team and hope to work with them all in the future. Please give an especially big thank you to Danette. She was fantastic! I don’t think our BBQs would have gone as smooth if I didn’t have her, and I am very grateful.

Best regards,

It's hard to believe how far we have come since the first meeting just over a year ago, looking at how we could bring a breakfast program to Langley SS, and what a positive year we have had in our first full year of the program.

Thank you for your tireless efforts in making sure our students are well fed and ready to learn.

RE: 2018 Canuel Caterers/Vendmaster Scholarship

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you for making the $500 Canuel Caterers/Vendmasters Scholarship possible. In doing so, I have lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. In addition, your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.

To whom it may concern,

I had the pleasure to be at Prince of Wales Secondary school for two days last week and two days this week on training. Each of those 4 days, I chose to purchase my lunch at the cafeteria. I wanted to let you know how impressed I was by the staff and the food. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and very accomodating. I was so impressed that I asked who I could send a commendation to, and I was given your e-mail.  

I would like to especially highlight Cora, the cook. All the food was delicious, but her chicken curry was outstanding. It would be a dish I would gladly eat in any fine restaurant. School cafeteria food is often seen as bland and unnutricious. This cannot be said for PW. The food was very flavourful, healthy, and fresh. Kudos to the whole team at PW.

Dear Mr. G. Canuel,

Thank you so much for this wonderful scholarship. To be honest, I am at a loss for words as I begin to describe my overwhelming gratitude. This scholarship has provided me with some much-needed financial aid, and it will go towards my tuition and other similar expenses as I continue my education at SFU. By giving me this scholarship, you have not only provided me with financial aid, but you have also validated my journey of seeking post-secondary education. So thank you, thank you very much!

As well, from what I’ve heard, everyone loved the food! Please let us know what the best way to leave you a positive review is so that others can learn about your great service.

First, I would like to thank you for all your help. You made this so easy for us. Your staff were absolutely fantastic and efficient. Everyone loved the food, it was delicious, and the setup looked beautiful. So many asked which company was catering (there will be a few weddings coming up), and we made sure they knew your name.

I just wanted to let you know that we appreciated all the work you and your team did. Unfortunately, I believe that people don't always receive the appreciation they deserve, so are you able to give your chef, cooks and staff a big thank you on our behalf?


Thank you all for making our special day a great success!

I just wanted to thank you and your team for once again giving us a wonderful meal with great service.  We had lots of food, and nothing but compliments.
Please pass this on to all the people involved.  It is so seldom that people say thanks, one usually hears from customers to complain, and this is certainly not the case.

So again, thank you and we will keep calling you for any events. "

I wanted to say how much I appreciated Canuel's service this week. From trying to plan with numbers that were unreliable at best to reacting to the needs day to day, your team was outstanding. And best of all I received a lot of compliments on the quality of the food which I wanted to pass on to you. The volunteers thought the food was delicious and it became a point of discussion where volunteers were encouraging others to go check it out because it was so goo. I've never seen that kind of response before. I've passed on these comments to Dan Howe as well and I won't hesitate to recommend you for future work.
