Max & Me Catering started doing backstage concert catering for EFC in 1997 and when I joined the team in 2000 we were doing most of this unique form of catering for them in shows that took place in the Philadelphia area. When the venue was booked for two shows during the Republican National Convention in Summer 2000 featuring Lynyrd Skynrd and Blues Traveler, the event planner was referred to us for catering. This began my history with doing special events at The Factory. We did many events between 2000 and 2006 when Max & Me Catering morphed into it's current ownership situation.
