For Us, Cooking or Baking for You is Our Passion


Serves You Right was formed in 1999 by Nancy Davenport.  Nancy had recognized a need for lunch alternatives at businesses and founded Serves You Right to meet the needs of her clients.  She made fresh, hot meals and took them to several area businesses where she would sell directly to the employees.  Along the way, several people asked if she could accommodate other types of events, which led to expansion into full-service catering. 


After years of assisting with catering on a part-time basis, Nancy’s son, Travis, joined the business full-time in 2010.  It was then that the business started to grow.  Serves You Right expanded into catering larger events, including weddings, conventions, and corporate events.  Serves You Right caters for 20-800+ people.


A wonderful party will live on in your memory. That's why we not only offer a multifaceted menu as a party service for La Crosse and the surrounding area, but we also provide professional and friendly wait staff for a memorable event.

Excellent Food, Great Price. - Nicole W

Very happy with Nancy and her staff. Have used her lots and she came through again!


Great Local Caterer. - Jenny K

We were quite pleased with our caterer, and so were our guests. We had many compliments on the food and the best part about it is that it was very budget friendly. Serves You Right is a family run catering company that gave us the feeling that even a handshake would have sealedthe deal. We were able to sample all of the dishes that we were originally considering, plus a couple of extras that we were told are popular with others. When I ordered the wrong size of table linens, Nancy (the business owner ) immediately requested the larger-sized tablecloths from her distributor. Because of her prompt communication, we were in fact able to swap out the linens just a couple of days before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, the food was served on time and the catering staff was very pleasant.


Great Service and Reasonable Prices! - Diana R

I've done business with Serves You Right over the years through my career in the hospitality industry and I was thrilled they were available to cater the Celebration of Life event in honor of my fiancé's mother,  Joanne Van Riper at the Omni Center this past weekend.   Nancy Davenport and her son Travis were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process from initial detailing to execution on the day of the event.Their menu choices and pricing are fantastic.  The quality and taste of their food, presentation, and professionalism consistently  exceed expectations.  On the day of our party for 200 people, all we had to do was enjoy our event.  Travis and Clarissa went above and beyond to ensure that we didn't have to give the food a second thought and could visit with our guests that were in town for the funeral.

Of course Sam's mom was the number one topic but I have to say the number two topic was how incredible the food was.  Everyone wanted to know who catered it.  Thank you Nancy, Travis, and Clarissa!!!!!!
