After more than two decades in the catering industry, Sandy Korem began an elite coaching company called The Catering Coach. Through The Catering Coach, she helps caterers take their business to the next level and teaches restaurateurs how to maximize their off-site catering potential and, if desired, establish a take-home catering revenue stream.
Sandy Korem’s catering expertise was established as the CEO and founder of The Festive Kitchen, a one-of-a kind catering company based in Dallas, Texas. While many restaurateurs have a majority of their catering experience in drop-off catering, Korem’s experience ranges from simple drop-offs to extravagant seated dinners for high profile guests such as prime ministers and sitting presidents. In 2008, she was awarded the White House Food Service Medallion for outstanding service to President George W. Bush.
Self-taught in the culinary arts, Korem launched her catering business in 1991 by providing handcrafted brownies to a local upscale casual restaurant. Within its first 10 years, The Festive Kitchen experienced annual double-digit growth in catering sales. In 2000, The Festive Kitchen began selling some of its most requested catering kitchen items in a retail setting. No other catering company in America has established such a diverse and profitable “take-home catering” division. Today, The Festive Kitchen sells more than 100 daily items from two separate storefronts in Texas. This combination of cutting-edge catering and a take-home catering division has catapulted The Festive Kitchen into a multi-unit, multi-million dollar company.
