We love it when our clients take the time to let us know how their clients enjoy using the site or app we've made and are proud of the work we crafted together. Brian Grove over at Personal Touch Catering took it one step further and submitted his site to the National Association of College & University Food Services Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards.
