"When we sell what is unique about our facility and stands out as compared to others, our high quality custom menus are always one of the key points we talk about. We are very grateful to have such a talented Chef and a team that consistently redefines expectations of "banquet food", and supports the facility's sustainability initiatives through regionally sourcing, homegrown herbs, and composting." -Sarah Britt, Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center Director of Sales
