Client Spotlight: Gourmet Caterers

Gourmet Caterers is a renowned Boston-based catering company and one of our incredible clients.  We recently got the chance to ask Karen Denaples, Gourmet Caterers’ Staffing Manager, some questions about how she got started and why she chooses AYS for her temporary staffing needs.

How did you get into the hospitality industry?  I started as a way to earn extra money.  My daughter was 8 months old and I needed to be with adults.  What better way to do both!

What do you find most rewarding about the industry?  I always liked working an event from start to finish, knowing that the client was truly happy.

What is the most important attribute you look for when hiring staff?  I think knowledge is a good thing but a willingness to learn is needed more than that.  Anyone can be trained if they want to be.

What is your favorite part about working with AYS?  The office staff for sure.  I am confident they know what I am looking for and the quality of staff I need.
