Marlow’s Tavern and sister companies Sterling Spoon Culinary Management and Market Street Cafe continue to generously support Special Olympics Georgia year-round through the annual Marlow’s Tavern Golf Classic and Tavern/Cafe fundraising efforts.

John C. Metz, co-founder and executive chef of Marlow’s Tavern, Market Street Cafe, and Sterling Spoon Culinary Management, has been a true friend and supporter of Special Olympics Georgia for 20 years. In 2017, Marlow’s Tavern/Sterling Spoon raised close to $130,000 through the annual golf tournament and a Tavern fundraiser. To date, John and the Marlow’s Tavern/Sterling Spoon family have raised almost $902,000 for Special Olympics Georgia athletes, and we’re very excited to see this go over one million dollars in 2018!

“I am thrilled with what we have raised for Special Olympics Georgia athletes. We are proud to give back to this organization that does so much for Georgia’s community,” said John. “Our partnership with SOGA is something I consider to be one of our company’s greatest achievements, and the fact that we have been able to break our own record year-after-year is incredibly rewarding to me and our entire team. We look forward to continuing this partnership long into the future.”

For 20 years, Sterling Spoon has delivered world-class on-site cafes, catering, and refreshment to corporations, their employees and their guests. In 2014 and 2015 Sterling was named one of the top food service companies by Food Management magazine. In 2015, Marlow’s Tavern received the Georgia Restaurant Neighbor Award and was selected for the Top 100 Restaurants in Atlanta by Jezebel Magazine.
