By October 10, 2022 Press Releases

Bonita Springs, Florida, October 10th,  2022—Following the tragic aftermath of Hurricane Ian, which devastated many areas of Southwest Florida late last month, Crave Culinaire ( sprang into action immediately after the hurricane to aid those who needed it the most. The prominent catering company has played an integral role in our community and beyond since 2013, led by owners, Chef Brian Roland, Nicole Roland and a team of exceptional individuals.

When asked by the American Red Cross for assistance, the Crave team jumped into action, despite the fact that much of its staff was still processing their own damage and losses from Hurricane Ian’s wrath. Preparing 4,000 meals per day, which are picked up and distributed by the American Red Cross, Team Crave is able to help those in need. The Crave professionals were forced to overcome the hurdle of a massive power outage, which affected thousands of homes and businesses in the area, operating solely off of generator power and propane. Once power was restored, team Crave was able to operate at full capacity and is fully open to serve the needs of our community. Due to unprecedented demand, both to service those in need as well as provide the much-needed catering and delivery services to its loyal customers, team Crave is hiring for all positions, including management.
