Spotlight: Executive Caterers
Join us as we talk with Bryce Humbarger, the Director of Marketing at Executive Caterers
Who are some of the coolest people you’ve met since opening?
Just in the last 1.5 years, I’ve met Lebron James and the rest of the Cavs championship team, Urban Meyer, Jim Tressel, Jim Brown, ZZ Top, Dee Snider, Chester Bennington, Dave Navarro, Machine Gun Kelly, Howie Mandel, Rob Portman, John Kasich, and many more celebrities.
Why did you choose Cleveland?
Executive Caterers has been a proud Cleveland mainstay for almost 60 years. From humble beginnings in our founders’ mother’s garage, we have expanded tremendously and are one of the last remaining companies in the city still being ran by the original founder after all these years.
How do you think Executive Caterers will change within the next 5 years?
We have always invested heavily in keeping our company as current and state-of-the-art as possible. Just in the two years we’ve revamped our audiovisual department, installing giant 215-inch projector screens in our grand ballroom and investing in a high-definition camera for video live-streaming. We’ve also purchased all-new china and tableware, purchased dozens of new linen options, upgraded our bakery, and completely re-carpeted and repaving our entire property. So, I don’t see this ongoing trend of investing in our company and our venues stopping anytime soon. I expect us to expand even more into the floral, linen, décor, and audiovisual business.
What has been your main goal as Executive Caterers?
Our goal is to take care of every aspect of our clients’ event with unsurpassed hospitality and customer service. From award-winning cuisine, stunning floral design, beautiful event décor, linens, and AV technology, clients enjoy a simple and stress-free planning process with Executive Caterers, working with one planner who will take care of everything for them.
What does a typical workday look like for you?
Whenever you walk into Landerhaven, you never know what you’re going to see next. Events any time, any day among various rooms. From taxis to horses and basketball courts to roller coasters, we’ve done it all to make parties unforgettable.
