It’s (A)LIVE! The survey, that is.

For many years, I have been putting together a State of the Industry feature.

I am continuing this tradition, but with some caveats. This is a…well, we all know it is an upside-down kind of year. To that end, I decided that in addition to the copious research I do each year, I would also add a survey component.

The purpose of this survey is to determine the current status and health of industry businesses as well as thoughts on various topics such as COVID procedures, diversity and inclusion, and other things I hope to noodle over. Responses will be analyzed and reported on a consolidated basis as part of Catersource’s upcoming winter issue.
All specific individual responses to this survey will be kept completely confidential.

I am asking you to please please take a moment and fill it out. If you want to be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card, leave your name and email address on the last page. Else, leave it off. We won’t be putting any names into the published report.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!
