The May 2 Dazzle the District event at Playhouse Square shined positive light on several local corporate event-planning communities, including A Taste of Excellence. Bill Rini’s Strongsville-based catering company set up mobile kitchens, including seven commercial ovens, near each stage to prepare the food. A dozen warming boxes helped transport the food to each plate up area, and close to 50 8-foot tables were used just for the plating of the meals. The planning of such an event, including the logistics of transporting all of the china, glassware, silverware, dining tables, table cloths, and napkins for more than 1,300 guests took weeks of planning meetings. “It was well worth the effort,” Rini says.

A Taste of Excellence was “all over the field” during the Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies in Canton. The company catered to 500 VIP guests at the Saturday Legends Greeting. The Enshrinement VIP Celebration tailgate party before the Hall of Fame game featured 1,000 VIP guests. The player induction parties occurred simultaneously in four separate tents with four separate temporary kitchens. Michael Strahan’s (500 guests) tent included a Philly cheese steak bar, a pastrami on mini-rye sandwich station, a mini-Nathan’s hot dogs station, and a New York-style pizza station. Tents for Ray Guy, Derrick Brooks, and Walter Jones each catered to 250 guests.
