Pannawonica teams create fine dining experience

Pannawonica teams create fine dining experience


10 August 2017

An annual VIP Long Service Awards Dinner was held in Pannawonica recently to recognise some of our client’s longest serving employees -celebrating from 5 to 25 years of service.

The Sodexo Pannawonica teams from all departments came together to ensure the night was a success, showing much adaptability and flexibility in transforming the Tavern space into an elegant, fine dining atmosphere. The service team included supermarket staff, cleaners, and admin staff, along with the chefs and tavern team, who all chipped in with planning, setting up, catering and cleaning for the event.  All the odd jobs, décor, and last minute details that are involved with planning a large event wouldn’t have been possible without the creative and versatile skills of the team.

“The success of this event can be attributed to the commitment and seamless team work across planning and execution of the event. We had contribution from across our Panna team and I could not be more impressed with their professionalism and team work”. Sally Ryan, Assistant Village Manager – Pannawonica

The event was a great success and enjoyed by everyone in attendance. Chefs Jose and Eddie executed a 3 course meal professionally to a 5 star standard, and Pastry Chef Sarah and baker Vicki, served up much talked about cakes and desserts!

“The team worked tirelessly in the lead up to the event and indeed throughout the night to ensure it was a complete success. The client feedback has been incredible, which not only demonstrates the individual skills but the integration of the collective service offering. Well done team and thank you!”  Luke Lilburn, Operations Manager – Coastal & Pannawonica Regions
