    Wouldn't it be great to have a salesforce that you only paid when they produced? Think of how much business you could capture with a motivated team of dozens of salespeople working every day for your small to mid size catering company.
    Hear the story of how a small start up company leveraged the power of relationships and convenient menu packages to double every year for the first 4 years and grow at a rate of 30% a year after that. Anil Melnick is Director of Sales at B With A Twist Catering in Las Vegas and Brittney Melnick is founder and Culinary Director of the company. Together they give a full picture from both the Sales and Culinary aspects of how to develop menu packages that are appealing, profitable and easy to produce even on just 2 days notice.
    Perfect for: Company Owners, Sales Managers and Executive Chefs.
