What a specialty
brings to the table.
Locally Sourced Ingredients. Thoughtfully Curated Selections.
With the acquisition of Brooklyn-based, full-service caterer Martin + Fitch, Corporate Essentials is able to introduce a new concept to the office catering world consisting of high quality, seasonal fresh food.
Whether an office is looking to supply food for an occasional workplace party, a regular Friday happy hour or daily grab-and-go lunches, Martin + Fitch is able to deliver. With menus changing daily and inspired by the seasons, Martin + Fitch is able to provide delicious, better-for-you meal options for employees.
Martin + Fitch co-founder Maura Martin joins the Corporate Essentials team as the Executive Chef. Martin has cooked for four of the last five U.S. Presidents, as well as providing catering services for the likes of Elie Tahari, Stephen Colbert, Tory Burch, The Tribeca Film Festival and more.
In addition to office catering, Martin + Fitch will continue to act as a boutique catering and events company. From photo shoots and drop off catering, to large full service events, Martin + Fitch can help you choose your venue, hire staff and design the space.
Martin + Fitch at Corporate Essentials
Through our exclusive partnership with the James Beard Foundation, Corporate Essentials has created a program to create customized menus for its corporate events and catering customers.
Corporate Essentials has partnered with a James Beard Foundation award winner or nominated chef every month. Each week, a different signature dish created by the chef will be featured throughout the month as a specialty offering through Martin & Fitch, Corporate Essentials’ new epicurean catering division. The program will give our customers access to an unrivaled variety of culinary selections from ten distinct regions throughout the United States. This premium workplace food offering ensures that Corporate Essentials’ customers are given the ultimate “foodie” experience to appeal to every palette, regardless of food preference or dietary restrictions.
“We did not make this move to simply add catering
as another service we offer,” said Kleinman. “We did
this to disrupt food service in the workplace.”
