the General Store
Amazing local food, lovingly prepared
We’re well-known across the state and across the country for our high-quality locally sourced dishes. For your special day, we make sure your food is amazing, giving you and your guests an experience to remember.
The Perfect team for the perfect venue
Unlike many other caterers, Saxapahaw General Store catering uses a close-knit team of professionals who have worked with each other, and have worked on events in the Haw River Ballroom, for years.
Years of Experience making it flawless
Since the General Store is in the same building as the Haw River Ballroom, we’ve been working events in the Ballroom for a long time. They’re our friends and our neighbors. And we know how to optimize the space for your needs.
We offer catering for pick-up in the store, for delivery, or for on-site service at your selected venue. We just need 48 hours notice for most pick-up orders. We can prepare platters of sandwiches from our menu; salads; boxed lunches; casserole-style meals such as lasagna, eggplant parmesan; hors d’oeuvres; desserts; and more. Service can include beverages from a broad selection of sodas and waters. For the perfect alcoholic pairings, we offer hand-selected wines from small producers around the world, and we source some of the best brews from North Carolina and beyond–available in bottles or kegs. In addition to food and beverage, we provide complete turn key service from set up through breakdown including meal service and bars.
If you’re considering an event in Haw River Ballroom, we are the exclusive caterer for the venue–one of the premier sites for weddings and corporate events in the state with its breathtaking 42-foot-high ceilings, state of the art sound, and rustically elegant aesthetic. It’s located next to the General Store and is part of the old Saxapahaw mill, lovingly reinvented in 2011 by its talented owners. Contact us for quotes and appointments, and see below for sample menus for events.
