"A Taste of the Wild! Catered the Verizon Wireless Picnic this year (2010) with over 1400 employees in attendance and we were completely satisfied with the service and hospitality provided to us by all of their employees. They were extremely helpful from beginning to end and able to accommodate all of our requests. We look forward to doing it again in the near future."
-Eric Ramirez, Supervisor- Employee Engagement, Verizon Wireless
