Expertise in Service

Entertaining just got easier. Protocol Staffing Services, located in Washington DC offers premium event personnel for events both small and large. Established by the owners of Occasions Caterers, Protocol has over 25 years of experience staffing special events. In 1986 twin brothers Eric and Mark Michael had big ideas in a tiny apartment kitchen. With charm and creativity, they built what is now, a premiere full-service catering firm, setting the standard for catered events in DC. The brothers always knew that a well trained staff is crucial to an event's success. Once only known as the staffing department for Occasions, Protocol has evolved into its own entity, garnering a reputation for expertise in event logistics, management and elements of service.
