Picture this: you’re planning a big meeting for your office and the only thing missing is a meal from your go-to Birmingham restaurants. Skip the stress (and the constant phone calls) by placing your order with Birmingham-based Feast. Here’s how.
Wait. What’s Feast?
Feast knows that food is an important part of… well, everything. No one likes to be hungry after a long morning shift or an exciting athletic event, right? That’s why Feast’s founders wanted to create a way to make placing catering orders as easy as a simple click.
Brett Ables and Erin Hill have spent years in the restaurant industry, so they know their stuff. They sandwiched the biz between their passion for food and knowledge of the industry to connect people with amazing restaurants.
Birmingham’s culinary scene has something for everyone—even your pickiest team members—and Feast will make it easier to get favorite dishes from local restaurants onto your table or into your conference room. Want to know how? We’ve got you covered.
Ordering is easy as pie 🥧
Feast is customer *and* restaurant-friendly. Brett and Erin are using their years of experience to make a Birmingham catering connector that delivers Magic City meals to customers’ tables without any stress.
Restaurants get a hassle-free catering process
Feast is there to make the whole catering process hassle-free for restaurants, from developing catering menus to the delivery process. Feast handles ordering on their site and manages pickup and delivery. They also provide a call center for customers who prefer to discuss options and can answer any questions at email@example.com.
If that isn’t enough, they also market restaurants through their website—without taking a huge cut of the profits. This is a win for Birmingham restaurants and customers alike.
With Feast, struggling local restaurants can cater their way back to profitability and job creation. Customers are hungry to support local and choose convenience—now they can have both!
“So many people order catering daily but don’t have the time to research what restaurants are available to them. We’re giving customers one convenient location to place catering orders from a variety of restaurants, while also giving them the ability to SUPPORT LOCAL!”Erin Hill, Co-Founder/Creative Director, Feast

“One of the most exciting things about Feast is how much time it will save for customers who have to order catering frequently. We strategically partnered with just the right amount of restaurants to give our customers options, while not overwhelming them. They can mix it up but still shop all in one place.
Plus, they get rewarded. We are building a very unique rewards platform for our customers to make it a bit more exciting for them. Way less hassle, and way more rewards. We want our customers to feel like we built Feast just for them.”Brett Ables, Founder & CEO of FEAST

“The most important thing to us when we order catering is CONVENIENCE, a variety of selections and then the price. I love having the option to support local, but have found that we’re mostly stuck with chain pizza restaurants. That gets old.”Wade Jones, Medical Representative, Orders Catering Almost Daily
