“Karen at Blackstone was amazing. From the first time I reached out to her, she was able to answer every question and fulfill every request! She was able to coordinate and handle not only our catering but also our cake and rentals. This saved me so much time and hassle! The food was absolutely incredible and had our guests raving, and the service was second-to-none. Not only were my husband and I well cared for, with a personal server all night who ensured we were able to actually eat the food we selected, but the other wait staff was attentive to all our guests’ needs. The night ran so smoothly and exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend them!” – J.K.
It is because of excellent reviews like this that Blackstone Caterers is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!
Not Your Average Catering Company
We were excited to learn all about Blackstone Caterers and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Director of Sales and Marketing, Karen Tunget.
The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Blackstone Caterers stand apart from its competitors. Karen told us:
“Blackstone Caterers is a family-owned and -operated business. We strive to exceed every customer’s expectations with our Blackstone-trained employees and locally-sourced ingredients for each event. We are selective about how many events we produce in one night in order to guarantee personalized service, custom menu creation, and event design.”
She went on to tell us about their overall business mission:
“Our business mission is to prepare with honesty, execute with integrity, and deliver beyond expectations. We execute events to our client’s visions and do so while locally sourcing food through Farm Fresh RI.”
Building Success, Online And Off
Blackstone Caterers has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Karen how they have managed to grow their business and get their name out. She told us that their secret to a strong online reputation is keeping consistency when posting to their most popular social media platforms.
In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Blackstone Caterers has spread the word about who they are and what they do by networking and working with other organizations. Karen told us:
“We participate in International Live Events Association Rhode Island Chapter (ILEA) and Rhode Island Wedding Group, which gives us the opportunity to network with our local vendors. We also have marketing material through Newport Life Magazine, Rhode Island Monthly Magazine, and many local papers.”
There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Blackstone Caterers has managed to. We asked if Karen could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:
“You have to have a strong online reputation to grow your business. You must know your market. Once you have an idea about what customers you would like to have for your business, do your research, and target how to win their business over your competition.”
Congratulations to Blackstone Caterers for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Karen for taking the time to speak with us!
