Alex’s journey to A’Britin Catering as the Marketing Director is an odd one. He married the love of his life and when booking the newly opened Almquist Farm, they had a few options of catering to choose from.
“Huh, This Little Piggy sounds pretty good. Let’s try them.”
What brought you to A’Britin?
The pandemic changed so much for so many people, me included. I saw the opening at A’Britin and said “this is my chance to finally get the mac & cheese again!”
But in all honesty, I saw how the team treated me and my wife on our wedding day and wanted to join the team.
What is something you’ve learned while being here?
That the catering team works miracles. Something can go wrong and I have seen extreme adaptability with everyone that works here. That and how much everyone relies on each other and really likes one another.
What’s your favorite memory working here?
It was actually beforehand. For our one-year anniversary, my wife wanted more of the Mac & Cheese. I called the number on This Little Piggy’s website and talked to a very nice man named Seth. (Not knowing he was the owner of the company). He politely declined giving out more of the Mac & Cheese unless I did an order for 50 people. Protip: You know how couples freeze a piece of their wedding cake? Save some of the Mac & Cheese too.
What are you excited about in the future here?
Seeing everyone’s smiling faces! That and how much we’re growing. We’re the largest family-owned catering company in Minnesota, and soon that term will be replaced by the largest in the Midwest. I’m excited to be along for the ride!
What do you do in your free time?
Video games! That and cooking with all the tips and tricks I’ve picked up from the chefs here.
