“Monica and her team at the Clean Plate Club delivered such incredible and delicious food for my wedding in May. The tasting was really fun, and everything was exactly as discussed on the day of. The service and buffet set up were executed beautifully. I’m still in awe of the logistics. The timing of everything went off without a hitch, so I didn’t even have to think about it. If you want a sure thing, go with Clean Plate Club! Pro tip: get the biscuits.” – Helen S.

Not Your Average Catering Company

Monica Holmes, the owner of The Clean Plate Club, took a few minutes out of her day to tell us a little more about this one-of-a-kind catering company and the impressive online reputation they’ve managed to build.

To start our conversation, we asked Monica what it is that sets The Clean Plate Club apart from their competition in Tennessee. She told us that all of their events are created for that client specifically; they’re not cookie-cutter. They offer customization and a wide menu variety. Also, the customer deals with one person and one point of contact from start to finish, and all of their Chefs are trained and certified.

Monica went on to tell us that she’s a single mother who started The Clean Plate Club 40 years ago. Today, her son is her partner, her daughter-in-law is the Bookkeeper and her grandson is a full-time member of her catering staff.

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at The Clean Plate Club and how they give back and make the world a better place. Monica shared with us that they are always doing catering events for the community, giving price reductions, making donations and giving leftovers after large events to the mission.

Building Success by Offering Great Service and Asking for Reviews

When we asked Monica about The Clean Plate Club’s secret to such a strong online reputation, she attributed it to their great service and to the fact that their weddings invoices include a link that asks for a review.

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, The Clean Plate Club has spread the word about who they are and what they do through Wedding Wire and The National Scout Guide, but most of their business comes from word of mouth.

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation The Clean Plate Club has. After we asked what advice she has for them, Monica told us that she started by herself and grew her business, and that she wishes she would have started going to more catering organizations and support groups.

Congratulations to the team at The Clean Plate Club for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Monica, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend The Clean Plate Club in Nashville. Visit their website today!
