Black Apron specialises in the supply of trained professional service staff for the hospitality industry. We are based in Northcliff, Johannesburg. Our clients count on us to deliver exceptional services. We have been serving at SA events and functions for over 14 years in corporate boardrooms, private homes, government houses and at sport complexes. As a long standing service provider we are nothing but discrete and professional at all times.
We aim to provide the highest quality of service staff, which includes waiters, bartenders, cleaners, hostesses, braai staf, and function managers. Our staff are trained professional staff members who meet all the expectations and needs of our clients. The success of the company is due to the careful selection of all our staff and the people and suppliers we partner with.
We believe that our staff are literally the face of our business and therefore represent us as a company. To our clients, service staff are often the first point of contact at an event or function. First impressions are lasting and will contribute to the success of the occasion. In our industry we believe service is as important as the quality of the food and beverage.
We recruit well groomed, courteous and experienced staff and can provide banqueting, silver service, cleaners, barmen and kitchen hands at a moment's notice. Our management team consists of hospitality professionals, who know the industry and appreciate the problems of both clients and staff. We expect high standards of professionalism from every member of the team, ensuring that we can provide the best possible service to all of our clients.
We service both corporate and private functions and we know the difference! We understand that a private function is by no means easier or less important than a corporate function but, generally, the emphasis is different. When you are entertaining your friends or family at home you want to rest assured that all of your guests are attended to whilst you also enjoy the occasion and that is what we ensure in every way we can. At any event it is our aim to ensure that our client’s expectations are met. Whatever it is, you need wait staff that can rise to the occasion, create a stress free environment, understand your requirements and be friendly and helpful at all times.
Corporate functions are generally different from private style events and parties. Firstly, if you are responsible for the organisation of an event, you need to make sure there are no slip ups! When it comes to boardroom service, meetings, breakouts, lunches or conferences you expect the service staff to be flexible, professional, organised and, above all, resourceful ! It is, therefore, of utmost importance to use a service provider who is able to perform flawlessly and understand at a glance how your company arranges its corporate entertainment. The service staff must be able to adapt to any type of event and must be able to fall in line with the logistics behind any particular event.
