Working together, ordinary people can perform extraordinary feats. They can push things that come into their hands a little higher up, a little further on towards the heights of excellence.
When you consider the structure and operating persona of your catering company, do you view it as an “island unto itself” where you attempt to provide everything your client could possibly want or need, or do you relish the opportunity to work as part of a team of specialized vendors each contributing your expertise?
Recently I have asked myself this question during reflection and planning for the future of our company, and I know you probably have as well. The trend in the industry seems to be toward becoming mogul mega-companies that can do it all from food to flowers, planning to papergoods. But I also see successful vendor “dream teams” coming together to market as a unit harnessing the power of referral between the companies, and even offering purchase discounts for clients that opt to use all of the companies.
So catering universe… tell me…
