On Wednesday, June 15th we got to tour the fresh&co catering facility and interview the Director of Catering and Events, Caroline Shannon. If you missed the Behind the Scenes Snapchat series be sure to add us @FoodtoEat on Snapchat for more segments.
What sets you apart from all the other restaurants in your cuisine?
Nobody does it fresher, nobody does it more local, and nobody does it better than we do. We have very few limitations because our facilities can handle a lot of volume.
What is your favorite dish on the menu and why?
The quinoa bowls especially the burrito quinoa bowl. I think I could eat it for the rest of my life. We might even turn it into a build your own burrito quinoa bowl.
What is the most enjoyable part about the restaurant?
I love the staff and the environment is overall very positive. We treat it as a family around here and we take care of one another. We still have the flexibility to make a lot of changes to the menu so we can grow with our customers and make a difference by giving people options who have dietary restrictions.
Advice to anyone thinking about going into the restaurant/catering business.
My advice would be remember the client always come first and so does hospitality. You need to walk in with a smile and walk out with one. It’s not about being part of the party it is about running the party.
