Executive staffing and recruiting firm ClearPath Solutions has joined and completed The Catering Institute’s certified supply chain program, created to certify and connect industry consultants and suppliers with restaurants and their takeout, delivery and catering operations.

The 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 to ensure strategic alignment between providers and the brands they serve.

The Catering Institute’s mission is to help restaurant operators grow sales and increase profits by teaching them to become experts at feeding their customers where they live, work and play. The Catering Institute’s supply chain partner certification designation is relevant for industry partners looking to become certified in The Five Pillars of Successful Restaurant Catering.  Education and certification programs are focused on the areas of:

  • Leadership

ClearPath Solutions is the newest addition to the Supply Chain Certification Program and is joined by Voice Teleservices, Punchh, Paytronix, PepsiCo, Robust Communications, War Room, Primary Color, LBP Packaging, Champion Tray and Inktel, who have each joined the program.

Established in 2010, ClearPath Solutions identifies top executive talent and works exclusively and nationally with restaurants and retailers to place executive-level leaders within their client organizations.  The company serves as brand ambassadors for emerging brands and provides executive coaching services for individuals looking to develop their leadership skills or navigate professional transitions.

“We are honored and thrilled to be selected as a talent acquisition partner to The Catering Institute and for the opportunity to build long-lasting partnerships with its vast network of brands making an impact in the catering industry,” says Helen Lao, ClearPath Solutions president and chief talent officer. “Aligned with The Catering Institute, we are committed to taking the time to understand what is important to our clients and delivering on promises”

Throughout the certification process the team at ClearPath Solutions participated in training classes, were provided with educational manuals, and received ongoing progress assessments.
