Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Nearly one year after its launch, the MMS Catering Institute™ is proud to announce the addition of three new Senior Faculty Members. The new members each represent stellar thought leadership in the restaurant community and have a demonstrated depth of knowledge in their respective fields. Senior Faculty Members will each have an opportunity to weave their knowledge base and professional work throughout the fabric of catering out of restaurants.
"The addition of these faculty members to our Catering Institute Team represents an opportunity to bring more specialized knowledge to our customers while we provide education, training and strategy services to restaurants," said Wayne Alexander, President of the MMS Catering Institute. "Their expertise and experience will serve to enhance the characteristics outlined in our Five Pillars of Restaurant Catering and will help build a solid curriculum as we teach restaurant operators how to be experts at feeding their customers where they live, work and play."
The new Faculty Members are Roland Zagnoli, Founder & CEO of Zagnoli Trading Company, Dan Hirt, CEO of Primary Color, and Betsy Craig, Founder & CEO of MenuTrinfo. As Senior Faculty Members, each one will receive access to MMS Catering Institute resources and contacts, have opportunities to present best practices for their subject matter in regards to catering out of restaurants, and take part in ongoing forums for advancing catering out of restaurants.
Faculty Members must submit six blog posts per year, participate on an MMS Catering Institute webinar as a subject matter expert, and collaborate with incoming and existing Faculty Members.
"Zagnoli Trading Company is flattered to join the MMS Catering Institute as a Faculty Member. Our commitment to the restaurant community, as a powerful team of resources and support for successful businesses, is in complete alignment with the leadership vision of the MMS Catering Institute," said Roland Zagnoli, Founder and CEO of Zagnoli Trading Company. "We are focused on bringing innovative beverage thinking, from concept to customer, and are excited to deliver the importance of beverage profit within the Five Pillars of Restaurant Catering."
In addition to Senior Faculty membership opportunities, the Catering Institute also offers Research Associate positions to members of the restaurant community. For more information about submitting a Senior Faculty Member or Research Associate application, please click here.
"We have developed the Catering Institute Faculty Program to help carry out the mandate set forth by the MMS Catering Institute, which is to pursue excellence in restaurant catering research, teaching and consulting to the global restaurant community at large," said Erle Dardick, Founder and CEO of MonkeyMedia Software™ and the MMS Catering Institute. "Since launching the Institute in March 2013, we have made great strides in continuing the strategy, education and training services we've been providing the multi-unit restaurant community for nearly 16 years."
