From South Bay to North County, we know San Diego because we ARE San Diego. It’s where we started over 35 years ago and where we continue to thrive. We know we need to show up at Mission Bay at sunrise to snag that perfect spot by the water. We know that good BBQ and craft beer is taken seriously. Most of all, we know that San Diegans like to play as hard as they work, which is why our goal is to provide them with delicious picnic catering and an event where fun, relaxation and belly laughs are top priority.
“We recently worked with Picnic People to host a corporate event for 180 people. We worked within a tight time frame and budget… Once the details were in place and the contract was signed, I was relieved that Picnic People would do the rest – and they did! After the event, our employees raved about the event and how it was the ‘best I’ve ever experienced.”’- Deanna, Marketing Manager, USE Credit Union
“As always, everyone who attended our event this year had a great time. Jesse and Justine did a great job coordinating the event and the onsite staff was excellent! With limited time and manpower available, Picnic People makes my job so much easier to plan and coordinate a picnic. I continue to be impressed every year.”- Kathy Tyson, Marketing Coordinator, EagleBurgmann
“Everything was wonderful! The area that you secured for our picnic was perfect, best spot in the park. Food was delicious, service amazing. Oscar and David were great—so helpful & cheerful, our group had a good time!”- Valerie Craft, Office Coordinator, Westmont Living
“A job WELL DONE by Picnic People!! Everything exceeded expectations: the staff was helpful & engaging, the food was very good, the beer garden was well-received, and the kids’ games were a lot of fun. The staff went above & beyond to welcome guests and cheerfully tackle all requests on the day of the event. We cannot express how thankful we are to have partnered with Picnic People for our event. We will definitely reach out to you for future events!!!”- Linda DeLay, Executive Assistant and Office Manager, Kitchell Contractors, Inc.
“Our event was a success and I had a lot of positive feedback about the choice of food, beer, quality and wonderful service you provided. The brats were awesome, they were the closest to the German sausages that I have had here in the US.”- Susanne Namdar, Sr. Executive Assistant, Peregrine Semiconductor Corp.
“I was overwhelmed by the quality of service we received from Picnic People for our holiday party. The food was outstanding and the attentiveness of the staff was unbelievable. They were some of the nicest and funniest people we have had the pleasure to work with. Jesse went above and beyond, from helping us come up with ideas to working with our budget. He showed us ways we could save money and still have a great time at our event. Your company is really the best in my book and your employees make your company shine.”- Randie Sturtevant, Office Manager, ecoATM/Gazelle
