What's a little brunch before watching the Academy Awards? A group of Boston Brunchers visited the catering machine known as Bakers' Best, a catering company located in Needham. Michael Baker, founder and owner, started his business due to a poorly constructed turkey sandwich eaten during a business trip. That was 28 years ago.
Today, Bakers' Best focuses it's business on corporate accounts, special events, charities, and schools. The company has nearly 120 employees; the hallmark of the culture is their people. Many employees stay with the company for five, ten, or even 15 years. Diane Wilson, director of sales, leads a team of 13 who work seven days a week. During the brunch, a sales member was at her desk taking orders. In the catering world, work never sleeps.
