“I wanted to extend my thanks for a job well done. Your team went above and beyond to make our event extra special. The food was wonderful, but more importantly your staff went out of their way to be as helpful as possible. I have been told several times by guests that attended that “the caterers stole the show”. We will most definitely recommend you to others, and think of you first for future events… Again, thank you for all of your hard work, and for making our event an exceptional evening.”

– Best Regards, Melissa Mundorff-Johnson

What makes Genuine Hospitality Consulting different?

Joe Abuso holds a unique position among restaurant consultants. He began as a CIA-trained chef who cooked in some of the country’s most prestigious establishments, then worked as a food and beverage director, and then started, operated, grew and profitably sold a top-tier, full service catering company in one of the country’s biggest markets. He has hands-on experience and success in all phases of operations – front and back of the house – as well as business planning, back-office operations, kitchen design, openings, growth strategies, operations assessments and exit strategies. His background is entrepreneurial, not corporate. When you hire Genuine Hospitality Consulting, your project won’t be handed off to an assistant, it will get the full attention and efforts of Joe Abuso, himself.
