Select Catering started January 1986 as Party Cocktail Team . Because of the fast growing customer database, the company worked on a large group of itinerant employees. The right appearance and qualities of these employees, resulted in a growing demand for promotion actions. Because of this Tom Jongen (founder and owner of Select Catering) was forced to establish a new company.
In January 1990 Spirit Hosting & Promotions, agency for hostesses and promotions, was founded. Since 1990 Spirit deployed qualified employees in front of and behind the scenes during promotions, conferences and events. Meanwhile, Spirit Hosting & Promotions is the lengthening of a large number of loyal and renowned organizations.
The accompanying goal is a good and substantive relationship with the clients, in order to create innovative and flexible solutions together for every activity.
In this same year Tom Jongen took part in catering company VIP Catering, de exclusive supplier of the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam which was established in one of the wings of the Maritime Museum. VIP Catering was organizing exclusive events and dinners almost daily. A fixed team of employees served 300 dinner guests or 700 partying guests easily. This company was founded by Hans Visser, who was the compagnon of Tom Jongen by that time.
In the years that followed, Tom Jongen launched different companies, including Young Label, Pide Pain, DCRT, Jimmy Woo on Tour and several other organizations. Besides that, a diversity of labels were developed as a part of Select Catering, for example Kitchen Performance, Royalton Lounge, Fast & Fresh and Rodriques.
