Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering has once again been chosen by Banner Hospitals to be the catering company for Banner’s grand opening event for their newest hospital.  Banner Ironwood is a state-of-the-art facility located in gorgeous Queen Creek, Arizona and serving many residents all around the East Valley.  Banner Ironwood is not only a full service medical facility but features a calming modern design, making it the premier healthcare facility in Queen Creek.

This is the second year in a row that Banner Hospitals has selected Santa Barbara.  This event was almost a daily occurrence in the month of October, and every day we made sure to create a new and exciting experience for our guests.  We are grateful for the main tent that Tri Rentals donated which was set up in the parking lot to help accommodate many of the events.

October was an extremely busy month for Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering, with the major theme for all of the Banner events focused on health conscious food choices, prepared right on site.  Not only did Santa Barbara cater the grand opening of the new hospital, but they also catered an employee family night for over 700 people.  Orientation and team building was another successful event with over 400 people to serve; and another was the dedication which hosted over 500 people.  Along with these large events, there were also smaller luncheons and meetings that were catered.  Leave it to Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering to take on any size event and have everyone talking about the top quality service and cuisine for years to come.
