How do you navigate the myriad of challenges of running a catering department in a college/ university setting? Does this sound familiar?
• Your client wants an upscale, 200 person gala, tomorrow, that costs nothing.
• Your boss wants events with low food and labor cost that best represent the image of the brand/school.
• You want to work 9-5 Monday through Friday while delivering events that look better than everything on Pinterest.
Academic catering generally offers short lead times, no money, great expectations, challenging event locations, and lack of training. Let's talk about best practices and what has worked for you, what has not worked for you, and how can we help each other. Bring your questions!
