Testimonials

“SHG Miami has spent the necessary time to pin point the foods that our professional athletes enjoy eating, then recreated those foods to meet our nutritional standards and budgetary parameters. Whether it is the Coach Spoelstra “Spo” smoothie, “D-Wade breakfast” wrap or the BBQ Grilled shredded chicken wraps, they are all loaded with flavor and Are simply Delicious! One thing is for sure…with SHGC cooking, if you don’t get to the food early it will all be gone.

SHG Miami was right there with their flexibility in preparing last minute meals for our team this year during the playoffs. Whether you need an incredible catered event, individual meal planning, an in-house chef or a special meal at any of Miami’s fine restaurants, SHG Miami can accomplish it all. Let SHG Miami take all the worry out of your dining needs. You can rest assure that everyone at SHG Miami is truly a professional and your privacy will never be compromised.”

I highly recommend SHG Miami as the best “hospitality team” in town.”

“I was in fine shape (5’10, 181 lbs), but Chef Mike had a reputation as the premier chef for elite athletes and so I decided to give his food service a try. With two months of Chef Mike’s lunches (and boxing training), I have dropped 8 lbs. and two buckle sizes.At first the lunches were not enough and I was still hungry after eating and so Chef Mike made some adjustments. Then it felt like I was eating too much, and so Chef Mike made some other tweaks. Now it is just right and I am hooked for life (especially to his filet mignon). Thanks Chef Mike! Your lunch service might be the best investment I’ve ever made!”

“Michael Jacobs headed up a culinary team that helped us produce an incredibly complicated barbecue competition television series. He helped structure the competitions themselves, was key in securing sponsorship, and managed to be cheerful and inexhaustible through twenty hour shoot days. Additionally, Michael was my go to guy for culinary advice when we had to change plans. I look forward to working with him again because I know that he has my back.”

They are extremely hardworking and very knowledgeable of the television side of culinary shows. “No” is not a word in their vocabulary. Food Network Challenge has worked with this company several times and we are continually impressed.”

“I’ve worked with SHG many times over the years on a number of projects, from Food Network Challenge to running the largest booth at the National Restaurant Association show. They’ve always delivered well above and beyond any of my expectations. When I need a culinary production team who will truly “get” my vision and needs – Michael is my go-to guy.”

“I met Chef Michael Jacobs of Strategic Hospitality Group when he was the Executive Chef at my law firm and we have been working together ever since. He introduced me to the hospitality industry, which has allowed me to meet and represent many of Miami’s local chefs. He has enhanced my appreciation for food and the service industry. As a personal concierge for my sports and entertainment clients and myself, he always  provides VIP treatment at restaurants and events from South Beach to New York. In addition, Michael is a fantastic chef. It is my pleasure to recommend him.”
