Portland, Maine-based Voice Teleservices has joined the MMS Catering Institute Industry Affiliation Program, created to certify and connect industry consultants and suppliers with restaurants and their catering operations.
The MMS Catering Institute focuses on the education and training needs of restaurant operators, franchisors, franchisees and their catering team members. The learning tools also extend to industry suppliers in the restaurant and foodservice industries. The vendor certification designation is relevant for industry partners looking to become certified in the "Five Pillars of Restaurant Catering," including leadership, centralized services, sales and marketing, operations and delivery.
