You’d be surprised to know what Cambro products Cafe Joshua Catering Company of West Palm Beach, Florida, winner of the Caterer Challenge 2, relies upon for its success. Although if you knew their mission, it may not be a surprise.
We are not just a caterer, but also a not-for-profit training kitchen for formerly homeless men and women. We teach our clients the catering business and then assist them in finding employment or hire them to work in our catering business as social enterprise employees.
For me, the Camwear and Camsquare products are my secret weapons because they help me to teach our apprentices about the fundamentals of food storage, portion control and recipe production. Camsquare storage containers don’t stack too tight, so they aren’t a nightmare to pull apart like other storage containers can be. Most importantly the lids seal tight, and with inexperienced apprentices working in the kitchen, this can be critical to avoid spills and cross contamination. Lastly our Camwear measuring cups have been dropped, knocked around, and generally abused yet they continue to hold up which saves our non-profit organization valuable resources.
Thanks to Joshua Catering for sharing their story and for their great work – as winners, they will receive $5,000 in Cambro products!
