Symposium-2017-postcard-front

Well, what a great result we are getting with this year’s 2017 Restaurant Takeout, Delivery & Catering Symposium!  This year is going to be fantastic!  I’m very proud of my team at The Catering Institute, MonkeyMedia Software and Catering Insights.

As of Today, we have more than 120 attendees from 70 different brands, 22 Dynamic Speakers and 20 value added Sponsors supporting this event.  And, we still have 21 Days left!  I’m hoping we may get to 160!  That would be something….

My plan is to help facilitate a day of conversation and debate about off-premise amongst restaurant operators, delivery logistics experts, legal and insurance executives, packaging experts, and technology and call centre perspectives.  In addition, we will be discussing the application of the 5 Pillars of Successful Restaurant Takeout, Delivery and Catering and how it can impact your brand.

If your current off-premise business strategy is getting lost in today’s technology and media landscape, then this symposium is for you.

Hope to see you there.

Catering is Alive and Well in our Restaurant Community!

Unknown

September 2015 was a whirlwind!  Conferences, Speaking Engagements, Consulting, Training and Software Implementations!

MonkeyMedia Software is humming along with more than 5000 restaurants using our solution, The Catering Institute is growing very rapidly and working with so many great teams and our readership at Catering Insights is growing exponentially.

I always knew in my own heart that catering out of restaurants was a HUGE opportunity for the brands that really decided to take it seriously.  And the data is presenting positively towards this belief.

Next year I will celebrate my 20th year since entering the foodservice space and I am just as excited and bullish about our industry as I was n 1996, when I acquired Tony’s Deli & Catering Company.

Catering was the force multiplier at Tony’s and was the catalyst that led to the work that I am doing today at MonkeyMedia Software, The Catering Institute and Catering Insights.  I am amazed to see how catering is also the force multiplier for so many brands that we are working with.

As I traverse North America and work with the greatest restaurant and foodservice companies in America, I am left with a feeling of optimism and hope.  In fact, I am so certain that the work we are doing is changing the way our community operates, that I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.

It’s going to be a fantastic ride!

I am grateful today to the team members that I am blessed to lead forward, and even more grateful to the more than 5000 restaurants and their teams that have placed their trust in our organization and for believing in our dream of helping restaurants to feed their customers where they Live, Work and Play.

Catering is here to stay and I am so grateful to be part of it.
