Don’t think of us as a typical (boring) recruitment co. We’re industry pros first and foremost and know exactly what #restaurantlife is all about, so we speak your lingo. We just happen to be pretty damn good at recruiting and making sure you’re not left 86’d with chefs or in the weeds with staff.


Meet Daryle
The guy behind MC.

(a.k.a. our very first relief chef). Daryle worked for years as an executive chef for relief chef agencies in the UK. Upon his jaunt across the pond, Daryle decided to test the relief chef concept in Maine. It didn't take long to realize this type of service was badly needed and the rest is history. As our company name suggests, Maine Cater was designed just for Maine’s F&B industry, but as word spread, neighboring states started asking for our help. In 2019, MC will be (slowly) launching into all of the states in New England.

On the rarest of rare occasions when Daryle isn’t working, he loves to spend time with his family and two little boys. Being from Scotland, he’s an avid golfer and loves hunting Haggis (Scottish joke).

Meet Orianna
MC’s Operations Wizard(ess).

Every company needs someone with smarts about them, and we’re fortunate to say Orianna (a.k.a. Ori) is our smarty pants and chief problem solver! Ori tackles our marketing, promotions, direct-hire service, networking with clients and candidates, office & HR - the list goes on. If you have a dose of the Monday blues, just give Ori a ring and she’ll brighten up your day.

When she’s not tackling the day to day ops of MC, she’s more than likely reading countless books to her little boy Rowan with her doggies Maggie & Clayton by her side. Coffee in hand, of course.
