2022 Restaurant and Catering Strength Through Adversity Award

Applejack Hospitality Win Restaurant and Catering’s Strength Through Adversity Award.

The Restaurant and Catering Industry Night awards were held last night in Sydney and we’re very proud to announce that Applejack Hospitality took out the Now Book It ‘Strength Through Adversity Award’.

More than 50 local restaurants, cafes and catering businesses gathered to celebrate the achievements of their peers, with the winners announced at the gala dinner held at Doltone House. The award ceremony acknowledged individuals and businesses who have shown resilience and leadership over the past 12 months and to celebrate 100 years of the Restaurant & Catering Association.

We are so excited to have been recognised for the prestigious award. We worked hard throughout lockdown to keep our customers and most importantly our staff engaged, happy and motivated to continue growing with Applejack.


“Through lockdown Applejack Hospitality went above and beyond with their staff, clear lines of communication on both the COVID and the business situation. The ability to guarantee jobs on the other end, as well as support with both mental welfare and personal support in the form of guidance on rental situations, the cooking of meals to be delivered to the employees housing, consistent updates, and fun in the form of trivia and cocktail masterclasses that upskilled their team and kept them entertained.⁠” – Restaurant and Catering Awards
