Five Star Catering

from the

The General Store

Our dishes are distinctly of this place, in large part because we use ingredients that were grown here. Our fruits and vegetables are locally and organically grown where available. We source responsibly grown meats and seafoods.

Full Service

We provide thoughtful service that seeks to create the ease of an evening in the host’s home with the careful attention to meet the importance of celebration. Service costs are based on style and extent of service. We provide convenience and the peace of mind that we’ve covered all the details. For events with service, we provide turn-key arrangements and setup of all equipment, dishware, flatware, linens, and glassware from one of the Triangle’s premier rental company.
