Powers Ventures About
It all began with the Canadian Honker Restaurant and Catering established in 1984 in a location where 8 restaurants had failed in a 10-year period. Having passion for the industry combined with hard work and dedication our organization slowly expanded and grew from a restaurant that sat 40 people to today being able to seat 165 guests and with an estimated 3 million people served and counting.
In 2006 we opened the Rochester International Event Center, in 2013 we welcomed in Pinnacle Catering to our growing portfolio of brands.
We strive to create a positive family business culture with more than 150 employees across all of our businesses and many of our employees have been with us since the very beginning.
We are honored to be a top-five finalist in the U.S. for the Achievement in Catering Excellence (ACE) award by CaterSource, one of the world’s largest industry resources. The ACE award is considered the Oscars of the catering industry and represents the best of the best in areas including culinary, business, community and professional development.
