Thank you for all your efforts in planning and executing the arrangements for food and beverage service for Convocation at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium and the President’s Dinner at the Maritime Museum during the Royal College Annual Conference in Halifax in September. You and your culinary and service teams provided excellent cuisine and service to our guests at both events. We have received many favorable comments about the conference, and we wish to acknowledge your contribution to making it a success. We would be delighted to recommend your catering services to others wishing to arrange similar events in Halifax, and we would enjoy working with you again!

They have provided everything from soup and sandwich to high-end sit down dinners. As a hotel catering primarily to the local business market, the delivery of a consistent, quality product on a timely basis is critical. Scanway has not let us down. We regularly receive very favorable comments about the quality of our food. Our hotel catering staff is confident that the product requested will arrive on time and be of excellent quality. Our staff can also rely on Scanway to respond quickly to the typical last minute requests that occur in this business.

Scanway has catered numerous corporate functions for BMO Nesbitt Burns and for me personally. We have always been extremely pleased with the quality and variety of food, the professional service and beautiful and innovative presentation. I highly recommend Scanway Catering to you.
–Carol Cushing, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, BMO Nesbitt Burns
The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia hosts many openings and events monthly and the calibre of food and service provided has been superb. I have had the opportunity to work with Unni Simensen and her staff in choosing menus for things as simple as wine and cheese to five course dinners.
Scanway is always very sensitive to the audiences we serve and the Gallery has received numerous letters from our corporate partners, dignitaries, members and volunteers praising the fabulous selection of food and professional and courteous service while staying within a tight budget.
Scanway Catering has been the exclusive caterer for all gallery functions whether hosted by AGNS or those renting our spaces. For this reason, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is seen as an excellent venue for those wishing to have a ‘successful event’.
–Bernard Riordon, Former Director/CEO, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia
I have had the pleasure of working with Scanway for the last 12 years. Needless to say their service is impeccable, the quality of their food is second to none in Nova Scotia, and their overall catering services are the best in Atlantic Canada.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your contribution to the G-7 Finance Ministers’ Meeting in Halifax on June 14-15, 2002. There is no doubt that the wonderful dinner you catered to my Finance Minister colleagues was well received and appreciated. You can be proud of your achievement.
-John Manley, Minister of Finance
We have used Scanway both for business and personal events for many years. The assignments have ranged from catering our Board of Director’s meetings, which tend to be for 10-20 people, up to the most recent event which was a surprise birthday party for my wife with 160 guests at a sit-down dinner. Unni Simensen and her staff handled all the catering for both our daughters’ weddings – the most recent a sit-down dinner for 200 at our summer home 45 miles from Halifax.
We have found that Unni has the imagination, the skills, the enthusiasm, the staff, the facilities, the resources, the logistical support and the management skills to make it all happen – on quality, on time, and on budget. Unni and her staff have always met with us in advance and were able to create the event we wanted whether it meant baking a brand new type of cake for a birthday, preparing a very different kind of salad, or advising on how to properly balance the meal.
We have the highest regard for Scanway. We have never been let down. We continue to use them regularly and we recommend them very highly and without reservation.
