Our Vice President of Operations, Brittany, always says that she’s been in catering since she was 5 years old. It’s an accurate statement for the daughter of two parents in the catering business! She began working part time for Southern Way in high school, continued in college, and came on board full time 6 years ago.
Brittany’s favorite part of the job is all of the people that she’s fortunate enough to know through the business. She loves the employees that she works with everyday because they are like family to her now, and she enjoys meeting with all of the clients that she works with. One of the things that she loves to do the most is to plan menus for a variety of events. Food is what Southern Way Catering does so she wants it to be creative, delicious and beautiful.
If she had to pick a favorite dish right now, it would be a new passed item that we just created: the Bacon/Ciabatta Bread Crostini with goat cheese pimento cheese and candied jalapeños.
One thing that Brittany is most excited about for 2017 is all of the planning. Southern Way continues to grow each year and she loves the behind the scenes planning process. Everything from the menu planning, the planning of new looks for Southern Way and the logistical planning to ensure that we are able to pull it all off. She is passionate about planning wonderful menus and events and ensuring that each and every client is over-the-moon happy with their event!
