A few months ago while the caterBuzz blog team was in Santa Cruz, California with Kimberly’s Catering, blogging the Bill Geisreiter Memorial, one of our caterBuzz members reached out to us for help to gussy up a proposal for a large grand opening event they had been asked to bid on.
caterBuzz offers our members a variety of services from the private forum, to on site catering photography and catering blogging, to help with putting proposals together with the buzzie member’s ideas and our creative writing skills.
A catering proposal is like a resume that we give our clients, it speaks to who we are as caterers and what we can do for each client – and tailored specifically to the event, is often the tool that creates the relationship between the caterer and the client that allows us to represent our clients and build relationships for not only the current event, but beyond.
Kim Lauria of Elegant Touch Catering, Altamont, New York, is a wizard and magician at designing and producing amazing décor and delicious events but writing proposals with her busy catering schedule is not Kim’s favorite part of the job. Having worked with Kim and her team, and knowing the unique and eye catching work they produce, caterBuzz was happy to take her ideas and shape them in to a proposal that came alive, so that the client could envision the creative process that was whirling around in Kim’s head and would ultimately make the client’s event a complete marketing success.
Having been involved in the initial proposal, caterBuzz wanted to see the vision come alive and are happy to promote Elegant Touch’s work on the caterBuzz. We spent the day photographing the Hannaford Market grand opening, allowing Kim and her staff to focus on the business of producing an event while we focused behind the camera to capture the moment.
caterBuzz is thrilled and honored to share with you the stunningly creative results of the marketing event produced and catered by Elegant Touch Catering and Special Events, Altamont, New York for Hannaford Supermarket Grand Opening in Duanesburg, a suburb of the NY state capital of Albany.
