Surrey, B.C. – While the Surrey Eagles have made massive improvements during the 2019-20 B.C Hockey League season to return to competitiveness, the road hasn’t been easy. However, with a new head coach in Cam Keith, new systems, and 21 new players the team has turned around and already made it to the Mainland Division Finals in the BCHL (Round 2). What hasn’t changed over the years has been the support of a number of key sponsors who have supported the team through thick and thin. As such, we’re taking a look at a number of businesses and organizations who have taken care of us while we’ve rebuilt our organization. After the Eagles soared above the Chilliwack Chiefs in round 1, we’re soaring with a team who’s helped us fuel up before and after games, Fuel Catering!
Marsha & Justin own Fuel Catering, and entered their 2nd season with the team this year! You can see their board right behind the Eagles bench at every home game inside ‘The Nest’. They’ve had a great time supporting the team in the past 2 years. Marsha explained the benefits of working with the organization. “We are a family owned business, so we really believe with working closely with the community. The Surrey Eagles are a great organization and great team, so we were really happy. A lot of our catering are with sporting events and teams so we found it such a great fit.”
Justin added, “Being a local boy and watching the 97/98 team while I was going through high school, it was cool to watch some of the guys I knew on the team. When we eventually had a business here, it was nice to know we had an opportunity to be able to sponsor and support the Eagles here while being a family owned, local company. It’s been a great opportunity for us and we’re really proud of what we do.”
Fuel Catering has provided the Eagles with a variety of great meals to choose from throughout the season, but they do much more than that. Marsha explained what else the business does on a day to day basis. “[Fuel Catering] is a catering company who provides food services too many elementary schools in the lower mainland and the Fraser Valley. We’re a big part of the hot lunch program; we provide healthy, nutritious meals for elementary schools. We also do a lot of event catering as well; a lot of non-profit organizations, corporate catering, and a bunch of other events. We’re known to be a healthier option compared to other companies around.”
Justin continued, “Knowing there are companies that people can choose from, we aim to provide lunches which are healthier and cater to those types of meals especially to school age children from North Vancouver to Chilliwack. We do like to support private organizations and sporting teams as well. For players who are competitive and need that type of nutrition, to give them the energy to play. We’re proud to support the team with the food they need to move forward and win the playoffs.”
With all the meals Fuel Catering has given us, we’ve accomplished great things this year. As we move into the Mainland Division Final, we’re proud to have Fuel Catering fuelling our players as we look to continue our run to the Fred Page Cup!
