The Catering Institute's one-day Catering Sales Management Workshop will bring together restaurant catering leaders looking to a build a better sales culture inside their organizations. The workshop, to be held October 13 at The Omni Park West Hotel in Dallas, will address cold-calling techniques, lead generation, and prospecting and consultative selling, among other topics.
"At The Catering Institute we help the restaurant community tackle all aspects of their off-premise business, yet there is one question we receive multiple times a day: 'How do we grow our catering sales,'" says Tracy Avolio, vice president of The Catering Institute. "We feel very fortunate that this workshop will help restaurateurs excel at growing their catering sales. We strongly believe that a culture of education, training, and ongoing learning provides real, long-lasting growth results."
To date, catering leaders from brands such as Firehouse Subs, Qdoba, Bruegger's, La Madeleine, and On the Border have signed up to attend the event, among others. The event also is sponsored by PepsiCo, Punchh, Voice Teleservices, and The Texas Restaurant Association. Food News Media, the publishing company for QSR and FSR magazines is the event's media partner.
