WHO WE ARE
Are you yearning for an alternative to blasé corporate and event catering? Do you need a new and innovative way to fuel your clients, guests and partygoers? That’s what we do.
The Mighty Cob is a revolutionary catering and special events company serving events of all sizes - from corporate event catering to product launches and even private backyard BBQ’s!
We love a party so we're versed in managing high volume events in venues like Aviva Centre, BMO Field and Union Station - to name a few.
WHAT WE DO
We know how to have fun with the idea of roasted gourmet super sweet corn and other delicious produce.
We believe in providing a tasty, innovative and healthy alternative to the norm. We provide a cost effective, fun and delicious addition to your next party, event or function. We play a supporting role or take the lead, you decide.
We are not your normal corporate caterer, festival merchant, mobile food vendor or special event organizer - though we do all those things.
We participate and serve in numerous cities, municipalities, and townships at a wide variety of concerts, events and festivals that range the spectrum. Since 2011 we've been part of over 500 public events serving hundreds of thousands of individuals. We do this by providing a diverse and exciting food line up and service that is charismatic, lively and energetic.
Among other accolades, we’re the preferred sweet corn provider for Port Credit’s annual events such as the Mississauga Waterfront Festival, Port Credit’s Paint The Town Red, Tim Horton’s South Side Shuffle and Port Credit’s Buskerfest. We’re privileged to participate year after year and have become a staple in this southern Mississauga community.
We also work closely with the City of Brampton. Together we have brought satisfaction and success to numerous special events at Gauge Park, Poweraid Center and Chinguacousy Park.
Our capability to effectively utilize our fleet of roasters and large compliment of staff allows us to attend multiple amazing events simultaneously like the City of Brampton, Burlington, Caledon, Mississauga, Oakville, Richmond Hill, Scarborough and Vaughan Canada Day Celebrations on July 1 of each year. We also have a fixed location in Brampton, with close to 4000 passersby each day.
We are “Maize Distribution Specialists”, “Produce Facilitators en masse” and “Farmland Asset Artisans” but most importantly we know how to have fun with the idea of Roasted Gourmet Super Sweet Corn and other delicious produce.
We have had the pleasure of working with the Toronto Blue Jays in conjunction with Aramark (the exclusive provider of all concessions at the Rogers Center) for the annual “Cottage In The City” event. Good For You Food Services of Magna International entrusted us to cater to 3000 of Magna’s valued guests at the annual “Magna Hoe Down”.
Mr. Lube's Customer Appreciation Weekend and Birthday Celebration enjoy our gourmet roasted sweet corn, fresh squeezed lemonade and other BBQ options each year. In conjunction with Centerplate, we participated at the historic Toronto Pan American and Para Pan American Games. Tennis anyone? Marigolds and Onions gave us the nod for sweet corn provider at the Rogers Cup!
What can be a better example of handling the responsibility than actual experience? These are but a small sampling of the high volume events we participate in each year. We have a resumé that we're proud of and a history you can feel confident in. How's that for name dropping?
Our specially designed and custom built Texas Corn Roasters are certified by the Technical Safety and Standards Authority. Each Texas Corn Roaster includes a properly functioning and certified fire extinguisher and our roasters are equipped with the NSF 4 Standard for Sanitation for North America. This certification places our Texas Corn Roasters in the top of their field as the only roasters to achieve a nationally approved status for catering, festival and special event industries; not that we like to brag.
We are accredited by the Better Business Bureau and members of The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association.
We are licensed to vend in all major Ontario municipalities and have also acquired health certifications in all relevant regions of Ontario. We provide insurance coverage of $5,000,000 to keep you safe.
We’re ready to provide excellence in each experience and every with interaction. To facilitate this we’ve begun our own “Sweet Corn University” – a training program that begins in May each year. Our team is effectively trained and developed to provide superior service, every time.
We’ve implemented a mentor program where managers and leaders mentor team members in a structured weekly curriculum that focuses on the Conference Board Of Canada’s Employability Skills.
Additionally, our team is trained and certified nationally with The Propane Training Institute (Canadian Propane Association) for proper propane use, handling and storage. They are also trained and certified by the National Food Safety and Training Program to exceed the quick-service and full-service national standard of food safety from coast-to-coast.
