Is restaurant catering “killing the catering” industry? – A Conversation on LinkedIn

World on shoulders

I feel like I have the world on my shoulders!  

I posted a recent blog in a group on LinkedIn.  The title of the post was “How restaurant catering is changing the balance sheet of America”.

Well, here is what one group member posted about a day later.  From a caterer.  A very upset caterer!

“For the companies that are strictly off premises caterers – Restaurant Catering is a nightmare for us – their chefs have no idea how to cater, just like I have no idea how to run a restaurant. Everytime a client tells me about a disaster, it was from a restaurant trying to be a caterer. STOP YOU ARE KILLING OUR INDUSTRY!!”

– Anonymous LinkedIn Caterer

If you are interested in my responses and the conversation that ensued, check out this link here.

I am curious to hear your thoughts?  Do you think that restaurant catering is killing the catering industry?  

As a restaurateur, this comment makes me want to do catering even more!!  How about you?
