- NEWS & CHAT
Itâ€™s been three years since the last ACE Quiz took place so there is no denying that we canâ€™t wait to bring you all back together to celebrate our fantastic industry. This event simply offers some light-hearted fun and the opportunity for you to connect with colleagues and industry friends to test your general knowledge over a few drinks. Events like this, which truly bring an industry together, wouldnâ€™t be possible without the support of our sponsors, Appetite 4 Work. We recently caught up with managing director, Mike Gardner to find out more about their involvement.
Why did you decide to support this ACE event?
After such a long time since the last ACE event we were really keen to get involved with the quiz. Itâ€™s always our favourite of all of the ACE events and so it was a no-brainer for us when we heard it was going ahead.
Why are you so passionate about supporting face to face events like this?
We all got into the industry because we love food, drink and hospitality so itâ€™s just natural for us to want to support face to face events as soon as it was physically possible. As a supplier to the industry, itâ€™s also incumbent on us to lead the way in getting confidence back so that more and more events can take place.
What service do you offer the industry?
We offer short term staffing solutions for both kitchens and front of house.
How are you supporting the contract catering industry at present?
We are trying to do our bit, as always, by helping to plug the many gaps that have appeared in everyoneâ€™s workforce. This means us having open and honest conversations with individual managers and advising on why certain vacancies might be harder to fill and what they could potentially try to have more success.
Are you putting in a quiz team? If so, who is your quiz know it all?
Yes we are â€“ weâ€™re still searching for this person! Suffice to say we donâ€™t expect to win but weâ€™ll enjoy the taking part!
