Centerplate Impresses Customers in TCF Center
October was a month for Centerplate success in TCF Center with a couple of milestone firsts: the first all-vegan event and the first retail show for two iconic Detroit food partners, Slows BBQ and Brown Dog Creamery.
"Tony Thomas and his team continue to raise the bar on catering service in TCF Center," said Claude Molinari, general manager for TCF Center/ASM Global. "Centerplate Executive Chef Stephan Blaser has elevated the culinary experience of our guests to new heights!"
The top selling food by far in the retail spaces was burgers (have you had the Motown Burger? It is outstanding!) The top selling beverages were bottled water and coffee from Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company, which is direct from the farmer, locally roasted and hand crafted in Detroit.
The team stayed busy in October with 414 Banquet Event Orders including 360 changes one day out and 11 changes day of event. The majority, 40 percent, of those orders were for lunches served.
All the activity resulted in kudos from customers for the record books:
- Motion + Power Technology Expo: "the team did a great job."
- 47th Annual SOCK (Support Our Capuchin Soup Kitchen): "best one yet, because of your employees."
- 2019 Net Impact Conference: : "The Centerplate team went above and beyond."
