Join The Canopy Rose Event Staff Team

Looking for a great part-time job?

Canopy Rose has one of the most generous pay scales of anywhere in the industry.

CEO, Kathi Dameron designed the payment plan after taking a sabbatical of sorts from owning Canopy Rose Catering, a premiere North Florida catering and special event company that catered to the Who’s Who of Florida for over a decade.

During her sabbatical, Kathi had the opportunity to work as an employee on a couple of different occasions and was able to see things from an entirely different perspective.

What she saw was that many businesses are not fair to the staff who are the real backbone of the business.

It didn’t take long for Kathi to adopt the mind-set of “worker advocate.”

This enlightened advocacy viewpoint is the basis for a unique employee pay incentive structure that not only trains, supports and empowers the staff of Canopy Rose Culinary Arts Studio and Catering Company but also generously rewards them for their hard work, dedication and commitment to culinary and special event excellence.

Event staff at Canopy Rose earn between $10.00 to $25.00 per hour.

All event staff begin at $10.00 an hour on their first event, then with each successive event their rate of pay increases in five cent increments until they reach a $25.00 cap (which occurs on the 300th event that they work with Canopy Rose.)

Once a member of the Event Staff attains the $25.00 cap, they will become eligible for company bonuses, which is another great incentive and reward for valuable contributions in building a great business.

Kathi Wins Writing Award

Canopy Rose owner, Kathi Dameron has won the 2nd Place Award in the Newspaper Article Category at the 2008 Southern Christian Writer's Conference in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for her article, Simple Act of Sharing Food Can Truly Bring People Together. This article appeared in the Northeast Chronicle - Tallahassee Democrat during the spring of 2008 in the Entertaining with Kathi column.

Grand Prize Winner In Cooking Contest

The year was 1987 when Kathi Dameron, a passionate gourmet cook who spent her days teaching 32 second graders, and her weekends hosting fun parties for her circle of friends at her waterfront home on Florida's North Hutchinson Island, won two prizes in the first cooking contest she ever entered. One of these prizes was the coveted Grand Prize. At that moment Kathi knew that one day in the not too distant future her special dream to launch her very own catering company would be realized. Seven years later that day arrived with the birth of Canopy Rose in Florida's Capital City in 1994.
