For years, Catering Magazine has been distributed to foodservice professionals well beyond the catering industry. The breadth of our content, as well as our strong partnerships with many trade shows and conferences across the U.S., have steadily increased the reach of our print and digital publication.
The events of 2020 underscored that trend, even as they brought about changes we never anticipated. The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting safety measures upended our lives and businesses, bringing catering and events to a standstill earlier in the year.
Yet even during the darkest days of the crisis, our industry proved to be a shining light. Catering companies provided free meals to the needy. Restaurants delivered food gifts to hospital workers and first responders. Foodservice suppliers turned their factories over to manufacturing much-needed PPE supplies.
Catering Magazine chronicled these uplifting stories in print and online, and shared the latest news on how the foodservice industry was responding to the pandemic.
As a result, foodservice and event professionals flocked to cateringmagazine.com, boosting our digital subscriber base from 25,000 to 60,000+ subscribers this year. Notably, this new readership came from both the foodservice and events industries, representing restaurants, catering companies, and a wide variety of food and event-planning businesses.
To better reflect our expanded reach, we’ve rebranded. Catering Magazine’s new name is Catering, Foodservice & Events, or CFE.
Our new and expanded website—www.cfe-news.com—is the online destination for all professionals in the catering, foodservice and events industries in North America, who want to stay on top of the latest trends and products.
With a total reach to more than 140,000 professionals nationwide, Catering, Foodservice & Events’ website, print magazine and expanded online digital and video services are a one-stop shop for suppliers looking to reach decision-makers in these markets.
As we enter 2021, we look forward to the rebound of the catering, foodservice and events industries. And CFE will be chronicling every step as we come back stronger than ever.
