Covid-19 EC Update: How We’re Staying Super Safe as a Business During Coronavirus

The past few months have been a whirlwind!! The EC team has been on the scene in Chicago and the nearby suburbs, for family-meal deliveries, intimate backyard BBQs, micro weddings, speciality corporate dropoffs, and beyond. We want to extend a warm “thank you!” to everyone who has ordered with us during this time. 

The Entertaining Company team has developed a new suite of Covid-19 related cleaning, sanitation and safety precautions to make sure that we’re as safe as possible throughout our catering process, from prep at our industrial-grade kitchen all the way through cleanup. 

Here’s a look at what we are doing as a business: 

-All staff are tested 2x monthly on the 1st and 15th – this is a requirement for everyone in order to be booked for events + company activities (kitchen staff, waiters, sales, and delivery crews). 

-All staff temperatures are taken onsite at every event and in our kitchen daily.  

-All staff and EC employees wear masks during prep, event, and cleanup. 

-We do rigorous cleaning and sanitation of all kitchen + event equipment.

-We have maintained a dedicated delivery staff that has not changed since the start of Covid. 

-We have maintained a dedicated kitchen staff that has not changed since the start of Covid. 

-We provide disposable gloves and PPE for our events; all items are single use and disposed of promptly after events. 

-We provide hand sanitizer on-site at all of our events. 

-All of our delivery orders are contactless (we text you to let you know it’s arrived).

We always welcome feedback about additional steps we can take during this evolving Pandemic period — please drop us a line at if you have additional tips or thoughts. 

Thank you as always!

The EC Team
