Uncle Sam's Kitchen was formally launched in 1996, when Gunit Singla decided to give up a lucrative career in advertising and join hands with her Sheraton Chef husband Samir Singla and set up what was to become Chennai's number one Party and Wedding Catering Brand
Our approach was always clear: while there were several 'caterers' out there, we wanted to be that one brand that helps people throw memorable parties. The food was Samir's baby and it was only natural that he brought his 7 star qualities to the mix right from ingredients to plating. We started looking into the rest of the experience - the service, the presentation, the support services... everything that went into making a party a memory.
It still catches us by surprise when we look at our client list over the years and see that we have made exactly 18,01,214 friends since the day we began. We say friends because it's personal. Just like food. Once we're on board we can't see the lines that separate you from us. And honestly, we'd like to keep it that way. It's what helps us think of your guests as ours. And it's what ensures we look into every detail on your behalf.
People ask us what party sizes we handle and our favourite answer is always that we are a boutique caterer with the added ability to handle really large guest lists as well. No two parties are the same and we focus on customising our offering to the occasion. From serving up the most delicious, mouth watering cuisines from all over to planning wedding lunches and reception dinners for week long events, we do it all. In fact, we now even have a separate kitchen for vegetarian only events.
And we have a separate brand just for providing companies with daily supply of nutritious and well balanced 'industrial lunches'. We also created a unique party-in-a-box idea which is possibly the first ever Takeaway Outdoor Catering! It's all possible if you enjoy the job you do. And we enjoy having a job that keeps us partying all the time.
For party freaks, be it a house party or any outdoor one, there may be lots of food hubs that serve the city with eclectic ambiance to spend some quality time with your friends in, but very few fulfill your hunger cravings; which is where Uncle Sam's Kitchen becomes a clear winner. Our Professional Catering Services manage to make people relish the dishes with every single bite.
