Today we’d like to introduce you to Brandon Rivers.
Hi Brandon, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I started cooking at the age of 11 with my aunt, who is a chef. I worked in the kitchen at the Jewish Community Center every summer, along with my younger brother, until I was about 15 or 16 years old. My first fast-paced, high-volume cooking was in two kosher kitchens; one being meat and the other being dairy. I grew up watching my dad grill and cook all day every day, so cooking has always been fun and a second instinct for me. I’ve been an executive chef for the last ten years of my life running hotel restaurants, bars, and a catering business. I started Brandon Rivers Catering in 2019 and haven’t looked back since!!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It hasn’t been easy as Charleston is a destination for good food and the overall dining experience. I have to make sure every plate, order, recipe and interaction are flawless because there may not be a second.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Brandon Rivers Catering?
