So what other caterer is able to cater breakfast and dinner (and sometimes lunch) for over 50 people for 52 days covering 2400 miles (San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL)? Spoiler alert -- check our company's name.
So our first trip of our catering season for the last six years we have been doing Bubba's Pampered Pedalers Coast2Coast bicycle trip. We traveled across California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas (big state - 18 days to cross), Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and finally Florida!
And let's not even mention that we need to make sure that the menus can't be repetitious. That can be quite a challenge during a 52 day trek especially considering in some areas grocery stores (and their stocks) can be limited!
Here are a selection of photos from the 2018 Coast2Coast trip we just finished catering.
As I stated in the previous post, we came down to do this, the last job of the year a week earlier to assist Bubba and his volunteers to help clean up some of the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
That being said, Bubbafest went on. We catered breakfast and dinner at the Boy Scout at Camp Sawyer and for three days at Boyd's RV Resort in Key West. Bubbafest is not so much a bike ride as a party on wheels... Needless to say a good time was had by all!
We headed down to the Florida Keys a week before Bubbafest (a week long ride down the Florida Keys from Key Largo to Key West and back again) to feed Bubba and his crew that came down early to help clean up the bike paths in the wake of Hurricane Irma which went though the middle Keys like a a chain saw.
We stayed at Camp Sawyer (the Boy Scout Camp) for a week feeding all the volunteers that came down to clear debris not only from all the bike paths but at Camp Sawyer itself which was hit hard. Here are some photos of the devastation. It should be noted that we arrived approximately three weeks after Irma made landfall in the Keys so that should give you an idea of the amount of destruction that occurred.
In November we had our last major catering trip, CI catered the Bubba's Pampered Pedalers Bubbafest Key West bike trip from Key Lago down to Key West and back. We only catered breakfasts with a complete selection of eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, bagels, fruit, juice, coffee and tea. Some pics from Bubbafest are below
