The main headquarters of Patio Orieta Catering Services Co. is located in AFPOVAI,
Taguig City. It is a lot owned by the daughter of Mrs. Orieta Villanueva, Ms. Erlinda
Villanueva, who is also the inheritor of the company. The lot acts as a warehouse to
store goods used for the cooking of food, as a parking space for the company vehicles,
and also as a boarding house for majority of the regular employees. Regular employees
are distributed to different tasks for the regular routine. If there is no cater for the day,
the usual daily business is the operating of the restaurant in Royal Palm Residences,
which involves employees who cook, drivers to take and pick up employees to and from
the restaurant, employees who operate the restaurant, and employees to help with the
operations in the headquarters (cleaning, maintenance etc.). When there are catering
events for the day, the company has back up on the call employees. The number of back
up employees needed are dependent on the number of people to cater within the day.
