PRET Kitchen Chronicles….on Hospitality

Promoted Partner Content

According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, the definition of the term “hospitality” is: the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors or strangers.

As this article goes to print, we are three short weeks away from Thanksgiving, a holiday that embodies the truest essence of “hospitality.” Whether your celebration is small and private, or you open your hearts and your homes to friends and family alike (we’ve all had a “Friendsgiving” once or twice), this special time of year brings us all together to relish in the warm and delicious smells, sights and tastes of the Thanksgiving feast!

In our business, it seems like every day is Thanksgiving–we live, breathe and work in “hospitality.” As with any profession, this is not for everyone, but for those of us who choose this, this is where we get our energy, our drive and mostly our satisfaction, by making people happy, comfortable and most of all satisfied.
We always say our greatest joy comes from watching our clients smile and breathe that huge sigh of relief when we arrive onsite, because they know they can relax and just be a guest at their own event.

We got to put this to the test these past several weeks with both private and corporate events ranging from Coronado to Carlsbad and a few in between.
Seeing the looks of curiosity, excitement, contentment and anticipation on their faces as we set up and prepped their events reminded us of why we wake up, rinse & repeat!

If you haven’t considered catering an event in the past (whether corporate or private), give our team at PRET the opportunity to come in and allow YOU to show up as a guest at YOUR next event.
We are industry professionals, and look forward to being a part of your next special celebration!

In the meantime, we welcome you to plan well, rest well, eat well & most of all enjoy the spirit of giving & hospitality.
