Certified Catering Consultants is a team of experts that represent the leading authorities on catering, both nationally and internationally. Catering by Michaels is proud to employ a member of this elite group, our very own Director of Operations, Jeff Ware.
We connected with the Managing Director of Certified Catering Consultants, Carl Sacks, to learn more about what it means to be a Certified Catering Consultant, and why they’re valuable to catering businesses.
To you, what does it mean to be a Certified Catering Consultant?
We call the entity Certified Catering Consultants to emphasize that we are catering industry specialists. There are many generic hospitality consultants, but we are experts in this specific hospitality niche. We also evaluate any consultant before they join our team — that’s what certification refers to.
The criteria we use for certification include experience as a senior executive in the industry, years consulting for the industry, presentations at industry conferences, publication in industry journals, and education.
