What a great last couple of weeks here at Kitchens For Good! With several new and talented staff members, the Catering and Events department is in full force and going strong. Last week we catered one of our favorite events of the year: Star/Pal, a 560 gourmet luncheon!
The event was a fundraiser organized by and benefitting Star/Pal, an amazing organization that empowers underserved youth to build a safer and more prosperous neighborhood by engaging with law enforcement and collaborative partners. Kitchens for Good served over 560 meals for their annual event. While the menu and food was delicious, poached pear gorgonzola and candied walnut salad, with rice pilaf and lemon herb chicken, the most notable part was the service. We partnered with Star/Pal to facilitate a celebrity waiter operation, in which local San Diego celebrities, including Professional Athletes, Firefighters, Elected Officials and Newscasters served guests their food, in exchange for a donation. With stars like San Diego Charger tight-end Jeff Cumberland, NBA all-star Bill Walton, and City Council Member Myrtle Cole, guests really felt like they were getting the 5-star treatment.
We were complimented on our food service, quality and consistency over and over. It is a great feeling when you strive to do your best to make your clients happy and the result is so positive. We were very honored to be able to work with such an amazing organization and to help them make it a successful event!
KFG’s sales staff is continuing to grow our catering business through referrals and networking with clients such as Star/Pal. We feel the best way to continue to grow our catering and events division is to continue to provide superior service and outstanding food to our clients. Strong relationships and a great reputation go hand in hand!
Being able to give back to our clients is what we are all about. Great feedback, happy faces and satisfied clients, with of course full bellies, is what makes it all worth while.
