Cameron Mitchell Catering announced as official on-course hospitality caterer
Dublin, Ohio – Tournament officials announced today that Cameron Mitchell Catering, the premier caterer in Columbus, Ohio, is partnering with the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance to serve as the exclusive on-course hospitality caterer for the prestigious invitational Tournament hosted by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Cameron Mitchell Catering as the exclusive on-course hospitality caterer for the Memorial,” said Executive Director Dan Sullivan. “The Tournament will benefit from Cameron Mitchell’s commitment both to his profession and the Columbus community he calls home.”
The Memorial Tournament will offer Cameron Mitchell Catering to the more than 40 companies within all of its on-course hospitality venues. Expanded in recent years to offer a wide range of options for corporations to consider, the Memorial’s on-course hospitality venues now include the Golden Bear Village, located off the 10th fairway and the Nicklaus Club, overlooking the 16th green. For years the Memorial has offered companies the opportunity to host clients, business partners and employees in venues that range from a table of six to an exclusive suite able to accommodate more than 100 guests per day. The Memorial Tournament’s goal is to provide venues that are unmatched in location and convenience while providing a first-class environment for companies to interact with their guests.
Cameron Mitchell Catering began in 2001 and is owned and operated by Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. Mitchell opened his first restaurant in 1993 and has since grown his business to 18 units and eight different concepts with locations in eight states. The spark for such growth and success is found at the heart of Cameron Mitchell Catering.
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with the Memorial Tournament,” said Cameron Mitchell, president and founder, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. “To be associated with one of the premiere sporting events in Columbus and one of the top stops on the PGA TOUR is truly an honor.”
