“Anything it takes to make the customer happy”, is a common phrase spoken around
the office by Infinity Caterers co-owner, Fred Morganstein. It has been his
primary philosophy since he opened the doors of Infinity Caterers, Inc. over
14 years ago.
With 25 years of experience in the restaurant and catering industries,
Fred has certainly learned what it takes to make his customers happy. After
graduating from the Pennsylvania State University School of Hotel and Institutional
Management, he began managing a popular suburban Philadelphia deli. He
was a staple there, with the staff and customers always looking forward
to what creative idea he would come up with next.
Looking for more, after 5 years Fred left the restaurant business
to try his hand in the world of upscale catering. He worked as second in
command in a high end catering business where he learned the art of delivering
great food and amazing service. Here, Fred was able to fine tune his ability
to “make the customer happy” while learning the ropes of the catering industry.
His clients were always thrilled with his services but Fred found himself
wanting to execute his own ideas and concepts.
In 1996 Fred created Infinity Caterers and put the great ideas,
swirling around in his mind to the test. Creative new dishes, gorgeous
presentations, a staff that left nothing to chance, and a desire to delight,
Fred hit the streets with his new company. The reception was overwhelming.
Providing a new higher end corporate experience and detail oriented private
catering know-how, Infinity Catering filled a niche for many that did not
14 years later, Fred and his partner/executive chef Nick still
pride themselves on the thrill of making the customer happy. Fred delights
in spending time his wife and two children, but his other love; the catering
business gives him tremendous gratification each and every day.
