Our Culinary Approach
Founded by Owner Fran Guevara, A Black Tie Affair is a full service catering company that provides fresh food and gracious hospitality daily to the San Francisco Peninsula. With over 30 years of experience in the food industry, unparalleled customer service, and a keen eye for details, Fran continues to share her passion for cooking and events. Corporate catering, private parties, weddings, picnics, and conventions are all part of our repertoire. There is no meeting or event too large or too small… every client deserves the best every time.
Our culinary team at A Black Tie Affair prides themselves on using the freshest, highest quality ingredients to produce delicious and beautifully presented food. We have created an exciting and diverse menu that we feature year-round. Since it is our intention to bring the best of what is available to all of our clients, we also provide seasonal menus three times per year. Our staff is always eager to generate custom, trendy, customer request specific menus. We continuously aim to bring something new to the palate, yet satisfy everyone we have the privilege to serve.
Our team consists of dedicated event professionals, delighted to assist in the coordination and execution of meetings and events of all sizes. We understand the process can be daunting, so we are here to walk you through it and make your experience seamless and stress free. Our event coordinators pride themselves not only on being able to turn your ideas into perfectly executed events, but also in the service they provide throughout the process. Our drivers and service staff are always willing to go the extra mile. We strive for satisfaction every time.
As a mother, and an engaged member of the community, Fran has always been passionate about ensuring she shares her success. Over the years, she has been committed to giving back to the community that has been so generous to support her growing from a small, single employee, at-home business, to the thriving full service company it is today. Every year she embraces opportunities to support and donate to the SF AIDS walk, the SFGH CARE program, non-profit organizations, and many religious institutions and schools.
