Melbourne, Australia (October 10, 2007) – Delaware North Companies Australia will be inducted into the Restaurant and Caterers Association (Victoria) Hall of Fame after its third consecutive “Event Caterer Award”. This recognition is made possible due to the company’s catering efforts at the Australian Open Grand Slam.
