- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Speaking on the phone and getting visual of the event and how the customer would like the food presented. Headcount is usually given at this time as well as chosen menu items. We let the client know what we feel are good choices of food for the event and what we think they can do without. We also make every attempt to not have the client order too much food! This process is important because it helps make every event feel like our own.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I read, read, read... and watch the food network all day with a notebook.
