A new partnership between Calgary’s Hotel Arts Group and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) was announced this week that will see the popular restaurant group provide curated on-campus catering programs for meetings, events, weddings, and student meal plans.
“Hotel Arts Group is extremely excited to be working with SAIT,” says Hotel Arts Group vice president and general manager Mark Wilson. “I am so very proud we can share the talents of our passionate team of artisans–many of whom are SAIT trained–to enhance the experience of campus life. This really speaks to SAIT supporting local business and engaging the community as partners.”
SAIT alum and Hotel Arts executive chef Quinn Staple and Food and Beverage Director Holly Parks have also developed an array of new breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus, which will be unveiled in conjunction with the launch of SAIT’s new 4,000 square-foot Begin Tower Dining Centre this upcoming September.
“SAIT is pleased to be joining forces with Hotel Arts on this innovative partnership, one that will provide a high-quality food service and experience to our SAIT community,” says Dr. David Ross, SAIT president and CEO. “Hotel Arts has trained and hired hundreds of SAIT graduates, including many who are currently with the hotel. By extension of this partnership, we know graduates from our internationally-ranked School of Hospitality and Tourism will go on to work in this industry–supporting the reopening of the sector and the rebuilding of our local economy.”
