About Bill Hansen

A leading catering, wedding, event expert and Founder and CEO of one of South Florida’s top catering firms Bill Hansen Catering & Event Production, I provide entertaining solutions for my clients that delight their guests with passion, quality, teamwork, and innovation. The secret to my 40+ year longevity in the catering and events industry is pleasing high-level clients including FedEx, HBO and UBS. This lies in hard work, unbridled passion, and never cutting corners in the food or the staff it takes to make things perfect.

Since founding Bill Hansen Catering & Event Production in 1980, I have written two books, conducted over 20 catering boot camps across the country, have spoken at scores of national industry meetings, and served as an expert witness in at least ten legal cases in the hospitality realm. I have also taught Catering Management at Florida International University since 1990 and have consulted for caterers all over the country.

I believe in my team, who passionately serve and create with only one purpose in mind - exceeding expectations.
