Inauguration Events

While I did watch all the events of this historic Inauguration Day, I also paid attention to the caterers of the Day.  There were many in Washington and we received some feedback from two.

One of the caterers, Ridgewells Catering of Washington, DC, had the privilege of catering one of the evening galas.  With an expected attendance of 10,000, they offered some insight into the impressive food quantities their team had prepared. “We’re preparing 95 gallons of guacamole, 400 pounds of crudites and we’ll be serving 200,000 pieces of dessert.”

Occasions Caterers, also of Washington DC and also involved in catering of the day, expected a long day with events running non-stop. Communications Manager, Davielle Shevitz was quoted as saying, “We’ll definitely be busy.  The biggest challenge of the entire day is logistics, especially relating to security. Our trucks have to stay overnight inside the security zone, so we have to be really aware of the perishability of our food and as a result prepare food that keeps well.”

Events of this nature and scale are a good opportunity for reflection.  According to Ridgewells, “We’re grateful to be here in the nation’s capital and grateful to have these events. Just grateful all-around.”
