The MMS Catering Institute™
Setting the standard for catering education and certification for restaurants.
The Catering Institute at MonkeyMedia Software was created to meet the needs of operators, franchisors, franchisees, and vendors in the restaurant and food service industries. Through strategy consulting, education and certification, our Catering Institute Team provides real solutions for real business challenges. Your catering and off-premise profits await.
Let’s talk catering.
Strategy services are provided at the company-level to help restaurant brands develop a successful catering and off-premise business. Services include the development of a brand-specific catering program that covers everything from establishing a catering business model and specific menu to marketing and execution plans.
Setting goals to grow your catering business is one thing. Executing these goals while managing your day-to-day retail operations is another. Through a series of five education modules taught onsite, or in a workshop format, our Catering Analysts, who have years of experience in multi-unit catering operations, sales and marketing, lead your team through focused training courses developed to engage, enlighten and inspire growth of your catering and off-premise business.
These one-day regional workshops offer certification in the areas of sales, marketing, operations, delivery programs and centralized catering services. The workshops are open to restaurant executive and management teams looking to further develop their catering programs. The first workshop, Catering Sales Management Certification, will be held June 6 in Chicago and is open to operators, franchisees and catering sales managers within any restaurant system.
These day-long certifications are geared toward restaurant operators, consultants, vendors and service providers who are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service by understanding The Five Pillars of Catering: Leadership, Centralized Services, Sales and Marketing, Operations and Delivery, are a key part. This certification process is supported by ongoing training classes, educational manuals and ongoing assessments.
These seminars are available for franchise conventions, corporate engagements and industry conferences, and will be presented by MonkeyMedia Software founder and CEO, Erle Dardick. These speaking engagements focus on how restaurant concepts can build their catering and off-premise business channels, as well as best practices for improving existing catering operations.
Join the Catering Institute Team for a series of informative webinars focusing on key issues in the catering and off-premise space. These webinars are a valuable resource to the restaurant and vendor community, often featuring successful operators, vendors and professional service providers who have shown exceptional leadership in the industry.
