Catering Miami - Last Week's Highlights / by Eric Monteiro


Chobani employees were in Miami for a 5 day seminar, and we catered the closing reception for 120 guests at the MAPS backlot in Wynwood. Greek-Mediterranean food stations were installed and we brought in local food trucks to create a  fun Wynwood block party atmosphere. Ms. Cheezious served gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. The Health Nut On Wheels prepared gourmet burgers and healthy treats while Sugar Yummy Mama delighted guests with sweet treats.

We catered breakfast, snacks and hot lunch for this 2 day seminar which was all about mapping the ocean’s wealth. We also catered the Athenian themed welcome cocktail where an array of Greek food was served. Held at the cruise line’s Miami headquarters, representatives from the World Bank, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the World Resources Institute, University of British Columbia and Duke University flew in to join the discussion about how ocean habitats benefit us and how to protect them.
