We were excited to learn all about Cellini Design Jewelers and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Marketing Manager, Marisa Laros.

Cellini Design Jewelers has been in business for 70 years and has been run by one family for three generations. Marisa told us that her grandfather was a family man and put that over everything else. She told us:

“I am a third-generation family member at the business; we have all grown up in this. There is no training quite like on-the-job training, so I have been absorbing the knowledge since I was a little girl.”

Cellini Design Jewelers is a member of the Independent Jewelers Organization, which gives them access to top designers and vendors.

Building Success Over The Years

Cellini Design Jewelers has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Marisa how they have managed to grow their business and get such excellent reviews. She said:

“Everything we do online starts here in the store. We focus on customer service and want to make people feel like part of the family. If we are conveying that to our customers, they are willing to leave us feedback online.”

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Cellini Design Jewelers has spread the word about who they are with a local billboard and by partnering with local charities.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Cellini Design Jewelers has managed to. We asked if Marisa could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Be involved in your community, and know who your customers are. Provide the best customer service that you can.”


Congratulations to Cellini Design Jewelers for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Marisa for taking the time to speak with us!

Not Your Average Restaurant

Manuel Romero, the Chef at Olea, generously gave us a few minutes of his time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Olea apart from the many other restaurants in Connecticut. Manuel told us that what makes people want to stop by Olea is their unique menu, as well as their many positive reviews.

Manuel went on to say:

“I think that New Haven is a really nice town for foodies. To me, it’s the best town in all of Connecticut because people got different choices. They can find any kind of restaurant in New Haven, and I’m proud to be working here. I’ve been here since 2001.”

Building Success by Taking Care of Their Customers

When we asked Manuel about Olea’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he told us that they try to take care of their customers as much as they can and to provide them with a meal that they enjoy.

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Olea has spread the word about who they are and what they do by focusing on providing specials and a unique menu for their guests.

Clearly, Manuel knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Success is a result of working hard and taking this business very seriously. Love what you do; enjoy it, and try to do it the best. Try to take care of other people. I just want to do the best I can so people can enjoy their meals. It’s one of the best ways of enjoying life — just having a nice meal with the right people at the table. Try to keep the flavors of the ingredients, too, so people will notice what they eat.”


Congratulations to the team at Olea for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Manuel, for taking the time to speak with us!

“We’ve been doing business with Millennium for many years now and have always found their services to be top notch! They are trustworthy, which for me, is a very important necessity given the line of work they do. They are always ready to accept any challenge and work diligently to keep me up and running. Five stars all the way!!” – Alaine M.

Not Your Average Computer IT Service

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Michael Begin, the President of Millennium Computer Services of CT.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Michael about what makes Millennium Computer Services of CT unique compared to the many other computer IT services in Connecticut. Michael told us about their many years of experience and said:

“We are a Managed Services Provider (MSP), so we have a lot of services that we have standardized on to keep computers running well all of the time. …We are certified in Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery (DR). There are nine of us here who are all dedicated to providing the best practice services to all of our clients. We have six techs who are specialized and certified in servers, workstations and complex networks. We are accessible to our clients during and after hours. Our billing is very transparent and simplified, so that our clients do not receive surprise invoices. We provide inventory reports yearly to our clients so that they know at any point in time what they should be budgeting for to replace aging computers. We have had a 99-percent retention since 1995 because of the attention to detail, the attention to service and our commitment to providing managed services, meeting our service level agreements with our clients and having the talent to do the work that they need us to do.”

Michael went on to add:

“We do another thing that not too many people do. We have something called Virtual Chief Information Officer (VCIO). We are the Chief Information Officer for our clients, where we have a partnership and where we get involved in all of their IT decision-making, whether it’s choosing an ERP system or an EMR system, or implementing that solution. We work very closely with the client. We don’t just wait for the phone to ring… We actually prevent problems before they happen, so that we’re not fighting fires.”

We also asked Michael about the Millennium Computer Services of CT mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Michael shared with us that their mission is to utilize proactive measures to keep computers running safely and well. Michael told us a little bit about how they give back to their community:

“We contribute charitable donations to organizations; we do work for nonprofit organizations, and we lower our rates for them.”

Building Success Through Organic Reviews

Michael credits Millennium Computer Services of CT’s strong online reputation to their many organic reviews.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Millennium Computer Services of CT has grown through digital marketing and word of mouth.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. When we asked what advice he has for them, Michael told us a little bit about his company’s growth in the early years:

“A lot of luck and perseverance came into play. Being honest with my clients and getting them to talk me up to help me build the company, it was hard. It’s hard work. But if you are fair to your clients and don’t just try to make a ton of money upfront but to make money over the long-term, then you’re going to retain your clients. That’s probably the most important thing — to not lose your clients. If a company wants to be successful, it takes a lot of hard work, a lot of luck and long hours…”


Congratulations to Millennium Computer Services of CT for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Michael, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Millennium Computer Services of CT in Prospect. Visit their website today!

Connecticut’s Top Rated Local® Senior Living Communities Award Winner: Middlewoods Of Farmington

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Middlewoods Of Farmington is an award winner for senior living communities in 2019.

If you are looking for a compassionate and excellent senior‌ ‌living community in Hartford, look no further than this award-winning company!

Middlewoods Of Farmington has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across three different verified sites with an average rating of 4.60 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 92.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as one of the top five senior living communities in Connecticut!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“My mother recently decided to do a 60-day trial. It took a full year for her to make that decision, and two days into her ‘trial,’ she doesn’t want to go back home!! The entire staff, and I truly mean everyone, has gone above and beyond to make the transition pleasant and easy. Middlewoods is a safe, clean, and caring facility, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.” – L.B.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Middlewoods Of Farmington is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Senior Living Community

We were excited to learn all about Middlewoods Of Farmington and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Director of Community Relations, Ginny Brown.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Middlewoods Of Farmington stand apart from its competitors. Ginny said that the non-profit part of their job is a big piece of what they do. They focus on helping people find what’s right for them, even if that means they help them look somewhere else.

Ginny also told us about how having the right staff makes a difference:

“Happy staff makes happy residents. We have a lot of staff longevity; we have people that have been here 10+ years.”

Ginny spoke about the importance of giving back to the community, starting with their residents and extending out from there. She said:

“We think it’s very important to make people feel like this is not their last chapter. We encourage that they have so much more to give, so we get people involved and give them purpose. We also do a lot of outreach in the outside community.”

She also shared the Middlewoods Of Farmington business mission:

“Our mission is to provide a continuum of services that supports health, independence, and dignity. We build this continuum on the belief that a relationship-centered philosophy best sustains body, mind, and spirit.”

Building Success And Community

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Middlewoods Of Farmington has spread the word about who they are and what they do by hosting community events, like luaus, identity theft seminars for seniors, and by sharing their space with neighbors.

Ginny told us about how it can be scary for people to make this transition, so she extends the invitation to do a trial run, which is something not all communities offer. She told us:

“Something I like to do for people is to offer people a trial stay option. It’s hard to move from home and start living with 70 people. I tell people to ask about our trial stay option, which is something that sets us apart from other communities.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Middlewoods Of Farmington has managed to. We asked if Ginny could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Be consistent, do the right thing, and always put the customers first. Listen, and follow-through.”


Congratulations to Middlewoods Of Farmington for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Ginny for taking the time to speak with us!

The chicken marsala was excellent, and the beef tenderloin was the best I’ve ever had! All of the guests loved the food. I highly recommend Ascot Catering for your next function.” – Kevin B.

Not Your Average Catering Company

Tom Sapia, the owner of Ascot Catering, took a few minutes out of his 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 Tom what it is that sets Ascot Catering apart from their competition in Connecticut. Here’s what he had to say:

“We think of all of our events as if they are our own. How would I want the event to go if I was planning it for me? What would I expect during the event if it was mine? We constantly think about the event that way, so we come from an overabundance state of mind, and we give that to our customers. We really don’t look at it from a price perspective as much as a service standpoint.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Ascot Catering and how they give back and make the world a better place. Tom told us that he’s very involved in the community and that’s he’s working to open a storefront so that can be even more connected with it. They make donations to local organizations, including providing meals for fundraisers.

Tom went on to add:

“Our mission is just to feed people. We want to provide people with the highest quality and convenience. We’re not here for ourselves; we’re here to take care of our customers.”

Building Success Through Organic Reviews

When we asked Tom about Ascot Catering’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he attributed it to their organic reviews. He told us that they are planning to start asking for reviews in the future, but as of right now, all of their reviews are organic.

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Ascot Catering has spread the word about who they are and what they do through social media and their website.

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Ascot Catering has. Here’s the expert advice Tom has for them:

“Always remember where you started. Create a service that will really reflect what you’re all about. Really try to strive to solve someone’s problem and make it worth it for them. Don’t get all caught up in the cents. Look at the bigger picture. Make sure you pay your staff well and train them well. The biggest asset to a great company is the employees. At the end of the day, we’re all just people, and we’re just coming from different places. That’s why training is so important — you have to provide direction and training for what you expect from your employees.”


Congratulations to the team at Ascot Catering for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Tom, for taking the time to speak with us!

“This is the best moving company ever!!! I can’t say that enough. Not only are they fast, but they are also very careful with your furniture. They are very friendly and easy to get along with, and do whatever they can to make it easy on you. Their pricing is very good compared to others, and I can promise you I will only use them going forward!” – J.R.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Smooth Move & Delivery is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Moving Service Company

We were excited to learn all about Smooth Move & Delivery and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Evan Wyler.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Smooth Move & Delivery stand apart from its competitors. This multi-award-winning company, in addition to being a Top Rated Local® Award Winner, has been recognized as the Best Mover of Stamford, CT, in both 2018, and 2019.

Evan told us a bit about the benefits of being a smaller company and the level of quality they guarantee to their clients:

“One of the many benefits of being a smaller moving company is having senior staff or owners manage the daily operations. This gives customers the most committed personnel ensuring everything goes according to plan. In addition to efficient operations, one of our biggest differentiators is our moving staff. We have top-notch movers, most of whom have been working with us for years. All our movers complete extensive training, and we have various processes in place that allow our teams to perform at a very high level. Sending experienced movers to a job-site makes a world of difference in working efficiently. The necessary planning, day-to-day operations, and most importantly, our staff, give us a leg-up over other moving companies of our caliber.”

We asked Evan what the overall business mission of Smooth Move & Delivery is, and he told us:

“Our focus is the service of others. We are committed to customer satisfaction and take pride in helping our customers navigate through one of their most challenging times. Our daily mission is offering a quality service at a competitive price and performing under the highest ethical and moral standards.”

Building Success, Online And Off

Smooth Move & Delivery has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Evan how they have managed to grow their business and get their name out. Evan said that while a good portion of their marketing is organic and done through networking and referrals, they have also branched out online and have gotten their name out on Yelp, Google, The Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, and Home Advisor. They have also done work with a third-party company that has helped them with their SEO (search engine optimization).

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Smooth Move & Delivery has managed to. We asked if Evan could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“I would say to hone in on what you really want to excel in, and stay focused. It’s easy to want to be the best at everything; pick one thing, and be great at it.”

Evan also shared:

“We understand that moving is personal and life changing for many reasons, and we take pride in the fact that we get to be a small piece of that.”


Congratulations to Smooth Move & Delivery for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Evan for taking the time to speak with us!
