Catering is getting easier for the restaurant operator

This september will be the beginning of my 16th year working on advancing catering in the restaurant industry.  When I thought about that, I scared myself!  Sixteen years is a long time.  Tons of roadwork, sweat, tears and laughter too.  I love what I do and I am very lucky to serve my team and clients.

“It’s possible that I am only 15 years into what will be a 30 year process!”, I thought to myself.  Well, if that’s the case, I’d better pace myself.  There is alot of work to be done.

My work at MonkeyMedia Software and the MMS Catering Institute continues to evolve and our team gets stronger and better every single day.  They achieve these results, because they just “chip away” at restaurant catering day in and day out.  Our work in the field with restaurant operators matters a lot and our team has a deep belief system.  We just don’t waiver.

On top of that, we make our customers money.  That’s what we do;  help them to grow sales and increase profits by teaching them to become experts at feeding their customers where they LIVE, WORK & PLAY.

And so, I was thinking about how restaurant catering is getting easier for operators.  It’s really great to see.  Well, I believe the best is yet to come.  It’s going to get easier and easier and in the future, the entire restaurant supply chain is going to innovate products and help support the tremendous growth opportunity that we all have.  It will be a wonderful thing for everyone when we hit all cylinders together.

If your organization sells services to restaurants, give me a call and I’d be happy to share my thoughts with you on why you should get into the restaurant catering conversation, sooner rather than later.

 

What Is My Purpose in the Restaurant Industry?

I was in the studio and this video came out of the session.  I thought I’d share it with you.  Been thinking alot about what I should be doing with my time in the food business.  Just thinking out loud really.  Hope you have a great weekend.

Loving the work we are doing at MonkeyMedia Software and the MMS Catering Institute.

 

The Catering Institute – Yes or No?

For those of you that know me, you understand how bullish I am on education and training when it comes to growing catering sales.

For the last year or so, our professional services team at MonkeyMedia Software has been working hard on our concept of a catering institute.  We’ve achieved a lot, and we are doing well with the materials.  Our customers are responding well.  We are ready to scale.  But before we do, I want to make sure its the smart thing to do.  So, I thought I’d ask all of you?!

Should MonkeyMedia Software establish the “Catering Institute”?

How about taking a minute to respond to this informal poll.  I’d be very grateful for your direction.  We have alot of effort in front of us and we want to make sure we do it right!
