2013 East: Marcia Selden Catering and Events
Bursting with creativity and fully embracing the possibilities of the digital age, Marcia Selden Catering & Event Planning has rocketed to the top of the competitive New York and Connecticut metro catering scene. Chef, owner and company matriarch Marcia Selden founded the business 35 years ago with no formal culinary or business training; it is now a multimillion dollar operation that relies on on-trend marketing strategies and industry savvy to consistently build profits and recognition.
Always exploring culinary trends, Marcia Selden Catering has incorporated compound butters—featuring combinations like Red Wine and Shiitake or Strawberry, Peach and Mint—into its menus. The staff has also readily embraced social media, using YouTube videos for staff training seminars and incorporating Pinterest boards into marketing materials, where their ideas were picked up for Martha Stewart Weddings magazine.
The staff collectively works to reduce food costs, focuses on maintaining a consistent quality product, and participates in rewards programs to improve the business overall; the company’s application proudly stated, “Everyone is a CEO of something.” This wholly accepted responsibility and passion for catering has led to increased profits year over year and has made Marcia Selden Catering & Event Planning a business to watch in years to come.
