Get to know Attitude on Food, winner of the 2014 ACE Award in the West, Under $2 Million category.
A leading wedding and event catering company located in Omaha, NE, Attitude on Food aims to provide an experience that goes above and beyond the region's meat-and-potatoes stereotype.
"We want to showcase how innovative we can be with both our food and our presentation," say the owners. "We are very fortunate to have a handful of clients that give us complete creative freedom to create exciting and innovative menus."
A big part of this innovative and creative approach comes from ongoing education. Members of the team make it a priority to attend the Catersource Conference & Tradeshow, among other industry events, every year.
"You can’t put a price on the amount of inspiration you acquire at these conferences. And it’s not just in the classes themselves; it’s being surrounded by the most amazing group of industry peers and the conversations you have in the hallway, at dinner or a bar."
Building good relationships with clients, staff and industry partners is also central to Attitude on Food's overall business strategy. To give clients a sense of security and to make them feel at home, the company's owner and director of operations and sales attend all client meetings.
"By getting to know our clients on a more personal level, we're able to get a strong feel for not only what they want, but how they want to be interacted with. Learning how to read people has benefited us greatly over the years and has often led to friendships after the event is over."
