“November, December are very busy months. We’re completely booked for this month,” said Wilson.

She says that’s proof that the company Christmas party is making a comeback this year. She’s catering 22 events this month.

Hotel Chaco couldn’t give KRQE exact numbers, but they also have a large number of catering orders and upcoming events. That’s not necessarily the case for all catering companies in the city. KRQE spoke with Royal Empire Catering. which is typically booked every day into mid-January. But this year, they only have about 40 parties. They say most of the big corporations have canceled because of the recent surge in COVID.

According to a LendingTree survey, about 30% of Americans are planning on hosting a holiday party this month.
