There was never a question in my mind about whether or not this was the right market,” said Yellen.
Yellen’s team recently signed an exclusive catering contract between the U.S. Olympic Training Center with Garden of the Gods Gourmet. Garden of the Gods Gourmet Catering & Events is an award-winning catering company whose accolades include: Silver for Best Caterer by The Gazette’s Best of the Springs, Gold for Best Caterer by the Independent’s Best of Awards and Best Caterer Outside of the Denver Metro Area by Denver-based publication, Colorado Meetings + Events.
Investing locally goes beyond just business ventures for Mitchell Yellen.
