How Gigpro Helped Rosemary’s Catering Fill Over 800 Positions for Breeder’s Cup 2022

Breeders' Cup horse race in Louisville Kentucky

Rosemary's Catering, a leading catering company in the Louisville area, was tasked with providing food and beverage service for the Breeders' Cup, a prestigious horse racing event held on November 4th and 5th, 2022. The large-scale catering event took place at an off-site venue and they served 14,000 guests over a Friday and Saturday.  Rosemary's Catering needed to ensure they had enough staff to handle the large crowd including line cooks, prep cooks, dishwashers, runners, servers, and buffet attendants.

To meet this challenge, Rosemary's Catering turned to Gigpro instead of their usual staffing agency resource. Gigpro was able to provide over 800 local and Nashville area workers for the event, to cover all the culinary and service positions. 

With the help of Gigpro, Rosemary's Catering successfully executed the Breeders' Cup event. The workers provided by Gigpro were experienced and reliable, and they fulfilled 10,249 hours of work throughout the two-day event. Beyond working with a beverage management company for beverage service, Gigpro was the exclusive staffing provider for the Breeders' Cup.

“Gigpro was absolutely amazing to work with and worked one-on-one with us throughout the event to ensure our staffing needs were met. I couldn't have been happier with Gigpro and the way they went above and beyond to find the right staff and support me and my team.  There would have been absolutely no way to achieve my hiring goal for the event without them.” - Amie Milby GM of Rosemary’s Catering
