Palm Beach County has named Ovations Food Services (OFS), a Tampa-based specialist in upscale food and beverage services for public assembly facilities, as the new food and beverage operations services provider for Palm Beach County Convention Center (PBCCC). OFS began operations on Thursday, July 1, 2010.
“It is our on-going commitment to provide the ultimate customer experience each and every time someone visits the Palm Beach County Convention Center,” said Dave Anderson, Palm Beach County Convention Center’s general manager. “Ovations Food Services has an outstanding reputation for their superior quality service in all aspects of production.”
Considered by many as the best managed and most innovative food services company in the industry, OFS emphasizes a specialty menu with local flavors in its selections. Ovations brings their signature exhibition cooking techniques, trend setting buffet décor and high-end catering carts paired with an award winning culinary team.
Ovations’ plans at the Palm Beach County Convention Center include implementing their Everything’s Fresh™ food service program, exciting banquet and retail dining options, as well as developing a local community outreach plan incorporating Palm Beach County businesses and community groups with local culinary culture, for relevant key events.
The PBCCC opened in 2004 with a 100,000 square foot exhibit hall and a 22,000 square foot ballroom. There are an additional 19 meeting rooms, all of which OFS will handle the catering, special food, and drink requirements for attendees and meeting planners.
“We’re extremely excited to bring our signature service to Palm Beach County,” said Ken Young, Ovations’ president. “We will be delivering a fresh approach through our chef-driven and chef-led cuisine. We also will be featuring local cuisine to bring a more local flavor to our menu.”
