Service means “to serve”. Taking care of people, our industry, and the wider community is what Cater Plus is all about.

Born in Paul’s kitchen in 2006, Cater Plus grew from a vision of what the catering management industry could be, and should be:

  • Customer focused, not compliance driven
  • Highly efficient without sacrificing quality
  • Attractive to great people with great attitudes
  • Restaurant-quality service standards
  • Fulfilling wants, not just needs.

Paul began by delivering great service, person by person – an approach Cater Plus still embodies to this day.

Starting as a chef, he built a 21-year kitchen career running large hospitality and food service training ventures, including at the helm of the Joint Services Catering School in the New Zealand Army.

In 1990 Paul was awarded Licentiateship (LCGI) by the City and Guilds of London to recognise achievements in education, training and employment in hospitality and catering.

As Paul’s experience grew so did a community of passionate, service-minded people - a community we now call Cater Plus.

Wanting to give back to an industry that had given him so much, Paul began to invest in industry excellence and creating opportunities for young hospitality students. He has been involved in the National Culinary Fare for over 10 years, and was instrumental in the formation of the Waikato Culinary Fare in 2004. He continues to support the event annually as Fare Director and co-sponsor.

In 2012 Paul turned his vision into a legacy with the creation of The Cater Plus Foundation, a charity created to invest in people, our industry and the community now and in the future.

Personal qualifications: Work Place Assessor; HACCP Auditor; Food Safety Facilitator; London City And Guilds 706/1‚ 706/2 706/3 and LGGI Licenceship; Millar Heinman Strategic Account Management; General Manager’s Certificate under the sale of Liquor Act.
