RE: COVID-19 BREAKFAST SAFETY
I hope that everyone is safe and healthy as we consider how to continue within our industry in a safe and confident way.
As a long-standing Chef and Breakfast Caterer, I have been considering the best and safest way to continue serving our commercial, film, television and print community. As we prepare to return to work, there are many changes that we have to implement in order to continue in a safe and healthy way.
- • Crewmembers will each approach a single sanitized table. On this table, there will be hand sanitizer and a menu listing beverages (coffee, tea, juice) and a daily selection of freshly made individual meals (offered with individually cut fresh fruit and relevant condiments). We will also offer pre-sliced bagels, pastries, our famous Irish Oatmeal, and our production-favorite vegetarian rice and beans.
- • There will be NO SELF SERVICE of any kind. All food, cutlery, and condiments (i.e. fresh salsa, honey, ketchup, syrup, preserves, etc.) will be individually packaged. Beverages will be served separately with lids.
- • All staff will be suited in proper Personal Protective Equipment.
These are certainly challenging times, but I am confident our industry can prevail and with careful planning meet the challenges of production safety during this time.
As always, it is my wish to offer you a fresh breakfast in a safe, friendly and healthy environment.
Thank you for your continued support.
Breakfast is Served!
“When a job awards in LA, the first thing I do is book Neil and the 2nd thing I do is buy my flight. He’s the best, when driving to set – knowing Neil is there with his wide variety of hot options – his homemade salsa – it eases those early morning call times and starts the shoot day off on the right foot!”
Stephanie Fernandez Executive Producer
“Neil never fails to do an excellent job, and just seeing him has always lifted the crew’s spirits! He has been a favorite for as long as I can remember, and nobody does it better.”
Andrew Colón Head of Production
“I have been working with Neil for 19 years now and am still excited for breakfast when he’s there."
"Neil is reliable, professional and the crew loves him. He remembers everyone and what their favorite dishes are.
Always a pleasure.”
Dawn Stennes Production Manager
“It’s always wonderful to see Neil’s smiling face. He serves fantastic food to order — fast and with personality. Neil provides a better service solo than other caterers that show up with 2 or more servers.”
Craig Repass Producer
“I’ve used Neil to cater breakfasts on many commercials, large and small. My crew and I are never disappointed. He’s prompt and always has a variety of things to offer. His menus are creative and it’s a welcome site to see him in the mornings.”
“When I shoot in LA, Neil is always my first call I’ve been working with him for years, and his food is always great. Everyone loves it – cast, crew, and client.”
Producer MTV On-Air Promos
“There’s no other person I’d like to see at 4 am other than Neil, he’s so pleasant and his food is great. The menu is also creative and crew love it. Neil’s also very good with clients and celebrity talent, he is a very personable guy.”
John O’Conner Production Manager
