Tampa caterers gorge on RNC boom

TAMPA – During convention week, Kevin Lacassin’s catering company will do the equivalent of opening a brand new restaurant every day, for four straight days. Good Food Catering Co. will cater at least 17 events a day, preparing in excess of 2,500 meals, 24 hours a day. For just one of those 60-plus parties, they’ll make 500 ceviche tacos, 500 blackened ahi tuna entrees and 500 fried mac ‘n cheese lollipops. “It may seem like just four days,” Lacassin said. “But we’ve been preparing for this for seven days a week for three months straight.”
