Great Performances Catering Company opens new kitchen in Hunts Point
A catering company is opening up shop in the Bronx and bringing dozens of new jobs with it.
Hunts Point is now the headquarters for Great Performances Catering Company.
Local and state officials were on hand to celebrate the grand opening of the kitchen.
Liz Neumark has run the independent catering company for 40 years and says she’s dedicated to investing in a borough she’s going to love.
“Opening a new kitchen as the city reopens is an amazing act of courage and hope,” Neumark says.
The space is expected to create 181 jobs, an investment that Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. says will continue to boost the Bronx’s economy from the COVID crisis.
“Food industry is exactly what we want to build up here,” Diaz Jr. says. “The food industry has been part of the Bronx for so many years, but nobody really looked at it that way.”
