When Crave Catering & Events says “above and beyond” they aren’t kidding! From tantalizing sushi spreads to hanging mini salads in a 3-tiered display, their events in the Minneapolis area look like one stunning night after another. Named the Best Caterer in the Twin Cities by Twin Cities Wedding and Event Professionals, it’s not difficult to see why. Crave’s Logistics Manager Chris Ramisch explains how their Cambro products have helped them reach the next level.
What inspired you to get into foodservice?
“Creating an unforgettable experience to guests who love to not just eat—but eat delicious food.”
What do you love about your business?
“I love to see the guests’ reaction when we show them that ‘above and beyond’ is a standard and not just an extra request.”
What’s the most interesting thing to happen to your business?
“From doing private events for many professional sports teams to public and private events for major musical artists…Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tim McGraw, Cheap Trick, Snoop Dogg, Kings of Leon, Chris Hawkey…and the list goes on with more! I like being on that side of the velvet rope and getting the prospective that those celebrities are people just like the rest of us.”
What is the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome?
“It was a challenge to continue to keep a freshness standard while using many different brands of delivery bags. Using the new Cambro GoBags have changed the game for our delivery department. These bags have allowed Crave Catering to go leaps and bounds above where we were before when we were using a mismatched, low-grade material.”
Which Cambro products help make your business work?
“The Cambro GoBags for delivery and the Cambro Sheet Pan Racks for delivery and events. The insulated Ultimate Sheet Pan Rack covers have massively helped us. Large orders can go on a sheet pan rack, we put the cover over it and latch the heavy-duty Velcro to secure the product inside, so it won’t lose any heat or stay cold. The covers have allowed us to cut down on plastic pallet wrap and let us go to this more environmentally friendly way of food transportation. Our freshness and overall eat-ability with our creations have skyrocketed with these products.”
