Jackson's Five Star Catering was great to work with for our 2018 family Reunion at Belle Isle in Detroit. The Coordinators (Demetria D. Sanders) were very helpful and accommodating from the start to the end. Also, the servers that came out to the park were early but waited patiently for schedule serving time. Very friendly with the family and I would use them again for any large event in the future. Jackson's Five Star Catering is a very professional organization that I highly recommend for any event.

- William Arrington, Stevenson Family Reunion

Awesome Experience!!! We hosted the picnic for our family reunion and family members ranted and raved about how delicious everything tasted! 

Joseph displayed professionalism at ALL times and was very prompt at returning my calls and emailing updated changes. The picnic crew arrived as scheduled and was ready to serve at our requested time. The food remained warm and when it was time for them to leave, they packed up and made sure we had forks, buns, napkins, etc. for family members that arrived after the designated serving time.

Jackson Five Star has ALWAYS been top notch in all my interactions with them. Their picnic menu is just as delicious as their breakfast and dinner menus! You can't go wrong with Jackson Five Star Catering!

Jackson Five Star catered our Walter Armstrong Memorial Scholarship Luncheon at the Charles Wright Museum of African American History and did a phenomenal job!

Thank you Chef Tony and the entire staff of Jackson Five Star Catering for always providing excellent service and great tasting food. Guests at my grandson's christening brunch raved about the food and that perfect peach cobbler! Most importantly, they were excited that there was plenty of food so they could take some home.

Deniera Davis, Events on the Blvd

I contacted Jackson 5 Star catering for my daughter’s graduation party. First, I was greeted with such a warm welcome from Joseph. He was an absolute delight to speak with. I had never used them before and was a bite hesitant. As I went through their menu and made my suggestions I was assured I’d like my suggestions. Once, they delivered the food and our guest arrived. I heard nothing but a lots of “oh my god, this is sooo good”. I had 8 different appetizers for my guests and had hardly any left. I would definitely recommend them and will be using their services again. The 5 star in their name is more than appropriate.

- Zenetha Mabry

We hired Jackson Five Star Catering for our Mother's Day Luncheon. From the beginning of arranging the menu all the way through the day of the banquet, everything went smoothly and exactly as planned with many extras that we did not expect. Dee was very attentive with the planning, confirming everything a couple days before the event. She was a pleasure to work with. Cindy, the owner, called the day before to get more specific details on the colors being used. She and her team arrived promptly to set up. We were very pleased with the number of staff that she brought. I appreciated her attention to detail. We had nothing but compliments on the food and its presentation. I truly appreciated Dee's follow up phone call the day after the event to see how everything went. Looking forward to using them at our next event.

- Leslie Banerian, Armenian Congregational Church

Everything was top notched. The staff was courteous to us and our guest. We would not change a thing.

I will definitely recommend your catering service to others and I look forward to working with Jackson's Five Star Catering again.

Emez Oliver, Michigan Crossover Girls Basketball Program

Our 3 Men and A Lady, 50th Birthday Celebration was a "Labor of Love." Therefore, only an exceptional catering establishment would do. To accomplish this feat, I thought back to the service Jackson Five Star provided at my brother's promotional event. Once again, they did not disappoint! The level of professionalism was evident upon speaking and meeting one-on-one with Mr, Joseph Welch, who always treats each potential client with the utmost respect. Total professionalism is displayed from their prompt arrival, the fresh floral arrangement, and organized expeditious set up. In terms of the the food, the quality and taste was so outstanding that many in attendance inquired about the name of the establishment and sought business cards. Thanks again to the Award Winning Jackson Five Star Catering for phenomenal service!

Marion Minnis, 3 Men and A Lady, 50th birthday Celebration

My husband and I had recently moved to SC when he passed. My son wanted to have a memorial service for him in Mi. We had to do everything long distance. I am so grateful that we picked Jackson Five Star catering. The food was great, and they accommodated our special needs. Thank You!

Sandra Kerridge

Jackson 5 Star was on time and the presentation was phenomenal. The staff was very professional and personable. Everyone loved the food, I'm still receiving compliments on how good it was. After such a hard day with the memorial service for my mother, it's nothing like a good cooked meal to ease the pain.

Jackson Five Star has provided food on more than 30 occasions for Gage Products Company for groups of 80 persons. The food is always fresh and of the highest quality. JFS never fails to have my food ready on time and piping hot, which I sincerely appreciate as I am usually scheduling meals between meeting breaks, plant tours and productions schedules. I also like the fact that JFS is an active supporter of their community. Both our employees and our guests are highly pleased with the service and meals from JFS.

Janet Sidman Ruszkowski, Gage Products Company

I would like to thank Jackson’s Five Star Catering for their excellent customer service. Mr. Joseph Welch took care of all my catering needs. 

He kept me advised of all the important details needed for our event, regarding the coordination of timely delivery and set up of services. Joseph was extremely patient and accommodating of last minute changes and adjustments to our original plans. I was very thankful that he has a caring approach and he is a true professional. Please accept my gratitude towards him and your customer care staff for their speedy and efficient services. On behalf of our organization, we look forward to doing business with Jackson’s Five Star Catering in the future.

- Crystal Hood, Detroit Area Agency on Aging

Dee - fantastic and a great attitude with me! Dee catered to our every need by giving me great service to me personally at the office. I've never had to work with a caterer before. Dee was patient and kind and a good listener. The food was WONDERFUL...ALL IF NOT MOST agreed. It was hot and tasty, not too salty and not without a really good flavor. Our servers Janice and Kenny were wonderful - patient and very kindhearted. OUR CLASS REUNION WAS A BLESSED SUCCESS - THE FOOD WAS A MAJOR FACTOR. Normally, we don't eat because it's cold and tasteless; there were countless comments on how good the food was. THANK YOU JACKSON 5 STAR CATERING - KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. I pray that all your customers are as kind as you are.


Words cannot express how extremely SATISFIED with everything for our family. The servers were wonderful. We had some problems with the venue in the beginning, but they did not let it alter anything. I have gotten only praise for the food. (Unfortunately, I didn't get to eat.) Everyone talked about how tender the meat was, the veggies were great. I mean the food just topped off the reception and made it the great success it was. Please let the servers know how much I appreciate them, and apologize again to the guy who's foot I stepped on. (long story) lol. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. You did it again. I will definitely see you soon.

From the initial telephone consultation call to secure an estimate, Jackson Five Star services have consistently been friendly, attentive and professional. The estimate invoice was dispatched promptly. The Follow up on the part of your office staff was friendly and invaluable in my team securing the check to make a timely payment for our desired services. Most important was the attentive and professional mannerism of your wait staff in the setup and serving of food on our event night.  Jackson Five Star Catering is a class act start to finish.

It has been a great partnership for the last three years with the Jackson Five Star Catering Inc. As the chairman for the 2018 event, we look forward to a continued partnership.
