Metro Events, a premier special event host, puts on conferences and other functions set in front of gorgeous sweeping views of the Embarcadero waterfront in downtown San Francisco. For the second straight year, Off the Grid Catering team received a call from this trusted industry partner about a fan-favorite event coming up on their calendar.

Kimberley Patten, Sales & Marketing Manager at Metro Events often experiences clients looking for food trucks or unique food concepts authentic to the Bay Area. The case was no different when the San Francisco 49ers sought to host a special NFL Draft party at Pier 35, completely open to the public. With over 4,000 expected attendees, Kimberley commissioned Off the Grid Catering to handle the event, as these diehard Niners fans were sure to show up hungry.

And while the venue sits in a prime downtown pier location, it does come with a few unique obstacles that can easily cause headaches without proper coordination. Kimberley knew she could rely on Off the Grid Catering to be a one-stop solution for all other needs beyond just the food – such as navigating permits, managing fire codes, and identifying power sources.

For the second straight year, the 49ers draft event went off without a hitch, as OTG Catering seamlessly managed to service 800 VIP and 3,500+ attendees in this constrained venue with a tricky layout. Not to mention, the burden of handling the complicated logistics was completely taken off the client, as OTG Catering employed its operational expertise to coordinate all aspects of the event with ease.

As a solutions-driven partner, OTG Catering is ready to handle any and all curveballs that a client may encounter when hosting a special event.
