Behind the success of every establishment, there is a heart touching story of the persons who are the architects of the company. SriJayam Marriage Service is not an exception. The proprietor of Sri Jayam Marriage Service, Mr. R.Viswanathan brought up the company through years of hard work and perseverance. But over the years, Viswanathan learned the art of catering by working with sincerity and loyalty for people who have been in this service for years. He learned how to cook and serve best food and also he learned to run an organization employing number of people and giving them proper training in catering services. This has given birth to Sri Jayam Marriage Service, a much sought after catering service unit in Chennai.
Here is the story of Mr. R.Viswanathan in his own words: My name is Mr. R.Viswanathan, from Nagai district thiruvengadu ( buthan stalam). After completing my graduation B.se in poompuhar college, I came down to Chennai in the year 1991-not with a world of dreams – just with the hope of gaining a decent livelihood. I joined my cousin in his coconut and catering business. I toiled day and night just for a monthly salary of 500 rupees and three square meals. Within 6 months I leaned the job very well. In course of time I also learned catering and car driving also.
Here I want to quote one particular incident-nay-accident where I could prove my talent. In January 1994 my cousin bought a maxi cab for the company use. While returning from Pondichery after marriage, the van met with an accident at Meenambakkam killing two persons and injuring 15 cooks. The same day we had to service for two functions at chennai. It was a memorable day for me indeed. We did catering service for Grahapravesham of the famous story writers Pattukottai Prabakar and Subha. At the same time we had to do catering service to a Shaptiyaptha Poorthy function also. We transported food from the grahapravesam function to Shastiyaptha Poorthy function and managed both the events successfully. Then onwards my salary was Rs.1500/- per month.
In another incident, we had to handover a set of eatables to party at Ashok Nagar. The servant and myself were caught in severe in rain. We fell down and I was bedridden for six months.
When the business grew, many of my relatives join my cousin. So I parted from I cousin who helped me buy a tourist van. I was operating the tourist van and also was simultaneously doing catering business also.
Suddenly I suffered a setback in the business. Somehow I got over the problem and resumed the catering business. Am now married and have son and a daughter. I considered all the three of them as God’s gifts.
In catering business ups and downs are normal. But with great will and perseverance I have been running the business somehow or other. Because I happen to be very innocent and open hearted and straight forward in all my personal and professional dealings, I have earned a very good name among my customers and am continuing to the business in spite of all the problems and hardship.
