That is where East County local John Crisafulli comes in. Crisafulli is a native San Diegan who still lives in the Mt. Helix community with his wife and twin daughters, not far from where he grew up. He is president of Behind The Scenes Catering, and he also serves as the enterprise’s managing director of global events. Crisafulli is now actively engaged in planning efforts for BTS to prepare and serve over half a million meals during the Rio Olympics, and he discussed his work during an interview on April 6. “This is a lot of food and lots of service,” Crisafulli said.
BTS also caters the San Diego Summer Pops concert series. In July, BTS will cater for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The company has operated the Fantail Café aboard the USS Midway since opening and provides meals for other events on the anchored ship museum. About a year ago, BTS added Kensington’s specialty wine shop Village Vino! to its holdings.
