What has been your Biggest Hurdle?

If we are as managers failing, you can expect the entire business to fail. A good manager must be to handle the cooks, servers, dishwashers, and more at any given time during an event. It’s a lot to juggle being a catering manager, and it’s not something that be learned over night. Long hours,catering business can be associated with having long hours, especially in the evening We can be the best caterer in the industry and still have unruly or angry customers. We could have customers who just have unrealistic expectations or you made a simple mistake of showing up late or providing an incorrect order. Dealing with customers properly is one of the biggest factors in having good repeat business and Food Waste
