I’m super pleased to bring in Erle Dardick, perhaps the top expert in off-premise catering and the meals-to-go space, for this episode. Erle is the founder and CEO of MonkeyMedia Group and the founder and expert behind The Catering Institute. Erle’s passion is readily evident and he and his team work hard with multi-unit operators around the world to deliver excellence in catering operations. In the episode, we’ll have Erle further introduce himself to you. I met Erle a number of years ago at an industry event, and have enjoyed numerous conversations over the years with him, about foodservice trends and more specifically his passion for helping operators excel.
Also, we bring in James Camacho, President of Camacho Foodservice and Laundry Design and Consulting. James is the second generation owner of this powerhouse foodservice consulting design firm, and recently was the Chair of the Board of Directors for FCSI Foodservice Consultants Society International – The Americas division.
In this episode, Erle, James and I carry on a lively discussion about trends impacting off-premise catering and major restaurant brands, how those trends are impacting foodservice design, and the impact of technology on catering kitchen designs. I hope you enjoy!
