Bill Clinton, James Carville and Custom Catering
Back in the 90’s when a, then relatively unknown Arkansas Governor, Bill Clinton, was running for President of the United States, his lead campaign strategist, James Carville, helped secure his victory in part by coining the now famous phrase, “it’s the economy, stupid.” The statement worked because it struck at the heart of what people cared about most–the rest being relatively superfluous. What does this, or politics in general, have to do with custom catering, you may ask? Well, in essence, it’s about cutting through the noise and remembering what is imperative–what matters most to the people. Often in any business, the focus gets lost in the minutia, and that’s when things go downhill.
It’s the Food, Stupid
At Savoury City, we’ve never veered from our original concept: “it’s the food, stupid.” What we mean by this is that the quality of the food is paramount. Locally-sourced, organic, farm-to-table, fresh and seasonal are not simply buzzwords to us, but an everyday reality and meaningful food philosophy. While we love being creative, updating our menus and trying new things, we never lose focus of what matters most–the food. If you don’t get that right, nothing else really matters no matter how cool or trendy it looks. Aesthetics without substance doesn’t really add up to much at the end of the day.
