Hamby Happenings: A Perfect Match

Last week was an exciting week for our Hamby team as we tackled our biggest job to date! This year, we were the official caterers for the Family Circle Cup, a WTA tournament here in Charleston attracting more than 88,000 attendees. We spent nine days working on-site in an industrial kitchen built just for the week of the event.

We provided concessions for spectators in the food court, selling more than 900 BBQ sandwiches, 1000 sandwich samplers, 700 summer salads, and 500 chicken salad sandwiches. We also catered meals for sponsors in the suites and served 425 VIPs and players at numerous off-site events.

Our event schedule began on Sunday, April 5th, at the Player Party, where more than 65 premiere athletes were welcomed to Charleston. As the week got off to a fast start, we opened our concession booth in the Food Court and patrons enjoyed our signature sandwiches and salads throughout the week.  Not to mention that we served more than 2,500 people in all of the suites, and catered the Sponsor Party and VIP Party, at Charleston Distilling and Hibernian Hall .

Tournament photographers, Chris Smith & Alice Keeney were on hand to capture some great shots of our Hamby signature selections.

All in all, being involved as the official caterer of the Family Circle Cup was a fantastic opportunity for our Hamby team! Partnering with four of Charleston’s biggest events back-to-back (SEWE, Charleston Fashion Week, Charleston Wine + Food, and now Family Circle Cup) has been incredible for all of us. And, gives us yet another reason why we love this charming town of ours.

Load in begins!

Over the course of the week, we will be on site serving Hamby classics in the Food Court adjacent to the stadium, as well as catering on- and off-site events including servicing all of the stadium suites. We will have the pleasure of feeding 100 national and international media in the Media Center,  volunteers at the Appreciation Dinner and players at the official Player Party at Mynt Lounge. (How sweet!)

The Family Circle Cup Food Court menu combines southern classics, with Hamby favorites that clients have come to love over the years. Guests can enjoy our signature selections, including our homemade Chicken Salad, Pimento Cheese and Egg Salad Sandwiches, our fresh Summer Salad or Slow Roasted BBQ Pulled Pork. More than 100,000 spectators are expected throughout the week, and we look forward to turning them all into Hamby fans!

Besides being able to feed the hungry crowds with our classic recipes, we are thrilled to be involved with a sporting event of this caliber. We love how this event puts an international spotlight on Charleston and brings world class talent to our green clay courts.
