EXPERIENCE. SERVICE. DEDICATION.

Contigiani’s Catering Service was established in 1965 in Laconia, New Hampshire. Our company prides itself on providing customers with the highest quality food, products and services available in the industry. Contigiani’s has proudly provided catering to many distinguished guests over the past 52 years including former Presidents Richard Nixon, George W. and George H.W. Bush, Senator Bob Dole, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and New Hampshire Governors Jeanne Shaheen, John Lynch and Maggie Hassan.

Should your event require a bar, Contigiani’s has an off-premise liquor license to serve your guests providing professional liquor catering services for hosted and cash bars. We are fully insured, licensed to serve at special events and are equipped with professional bartenders. Beer, wine and spirit packages with all the mixers are available.

If you desire an event at your home or outdoors, Contigiani’s can accommodate you at any location. We are fully equipped with china and linen specific to your event. Contigiani’s supplies portable cooking ovens, on location refrigeration and water supplies used by our staff during your event. We can assist you with the organization of details such as placement of tables and chairs, bar area, dance floor and buffet stations. We also offer custom designed centerpieces to enhance your event.
