Marigold Catering Stepping in to Help Fill Void Left By Sammy's




The sudden shuttering of all Sammy's operations earlier this week has left many workers unemployed and some high profile venues scrambling to find both catering and restaurant replacements.

Large local catering company Marigold Catering has stepped up in both regards, holding a job fair for the affected workers and stepping into Severance Hall to plug that void. After a very fast conversion of the space, that facility will reopen by tomorrow night's pre-concert service.

Marigold Catering has been in business in Cleveland for over 16 years. They are the exclusive caterer at MOCA and The Ballroom at Park Lane Villa. They are also approved vendors for Case Western Reserve, Glidden House and downtown hospitals.
