If you spot anything wrong in the content provided here, please let me know so that I can update this document and publish it as the most current, available information. It is my goal to keep all of our training an announcement for reference material accurate and as of today as possible. All of your help would be appreciated!
Email me at email@example.com and let me know what needs to be changed. Or just send me anything of interest to incorporate into these newsletters.
Sit down or plated meals require use of oval shaped serving trays called Ovals. We then line each top with 2 linens. So it should look like the photos that follow
So, let's remember to always line our trays properly with napkins, before taking them out on the floor or wherever guests are present ;)
Linen proceedure for Benaroya is always at the bottom of the event notes for your event. All events will have their own linens labeled by event name. Please only use the linens labeled for your event.
Although Tuxedos and Tennis is THE exclusive caterer at Benaroya, we still don't have an ideal linen vendor contact in place that lets us do whatever we want. WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THE SERVICE TEAM: We cannot ever bring our house TNT linen (Alsco is the Vendor) into Benaroya (Superior Linens in the other Vendor). Linen from Superior for each event will always be bundled and left in the coffee room for catering events at Benaroya.
We are free to use a conservative amount of the Standard Linen supplies that are also stocked in the coffee room at Benaroya. Standard Linen supplies include: Black aprons, napkin-sized service linens, and bar towels/rags. Please always pack the Benaroya linen in one of the blue bags (also found in the coffee room) and toss it into the used linen bin found in the Benaroya loading dock.
Benaroya Hall In-House Catering Events are always titled as "BHC - Event Name" in your event details in NOWSTA. All this really means is that all of the food and (most of the) equipment we need for the event will come right out of Benaroya Hall, rather than being transported there from The Works.
