NXT 115 - Sarah Hall | Joel Catering
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Sarah Hall is the President of Joel Catering and event venue, El Mercato, in New Orleans. We quickly learned after talking with Sarah that Joel Catering is much more than just food for your event. Yes, food is the easy part so typically the last question on their list when planning an event; they are more focused on the details of the event and what story it is going to tell its attendees. With 400 events a year, 75% of those being weddings, plus executing everything with 20 employees, we'd say they definitely know what they are doing. Sarah is originally from Miami; came to Louisiana for college at Tulane University and never left. She started working at Joel Catering right out of college as a receptionist and look at her now! So inspiring to hear about her journey to the top of this well known, successful catering company in New Orleans.
