With a mantra of “It’s not just business; it’s personal”, Paul firmly believes that “Service is not an industry; but rather it is a state of mind.”

Thank you for catering the wrap party for the Kaleido Family Arts Festival. The meal was excellent, and the service extraordinary, it is seldom that we as volunteers get to enjoy a lovely meal with entertainment at the end of a festival. Again thank you for treating us to a superb meal.

The buffet in the Green & Gold Club at the Edmonton Eskimos game was incredible. The roast beef was off the chart good, the dessert table (in particular the bread pudding) was incredible.
