“Whoever said owning or managing a food & beverage op was easy has never been in the business, or is one of those ‘elite Yelpers’. When I worked as an exec chef, I was consistently short-staffed in the kitchen so when I started Maine Cater, I knew this issue had to be fixed & the 86’Relief Team was born. Gone are the days you’re 86’d in the kitchen.”
- Daryle Degen, MC Founder & 86’Chef
The good word
Maine Cater took the time to get to know our operation and found us the perfect chef, we couldn’t be more pleased. A job well done to the whole team!
