They want their food to be a kind of interactive experience and want their offerings to be a highlight at the events they cater to. Jeremy said:

“When we entered the food market, it just seemed like a necessary item for events. What we’re trying to shift is, we want people to choose a caterer based on enhancing their event, not just as an amenity that’s needed. Everything we do is built around that. We want to either elevate the food, elevate the service, or elevate the presentation and interaction so that guests remember us. It’s just a memorable part of the event.”

“Our mission is to offer an exceptional product that’s memorable and to take as much stress away from our clients as possible.”

By giving their best at every event they work, they have gained some excellent organic reviews. He said that a part of the reason they have been able to earn so many reviews is because of their commitment to creating relationships with their clients. Because they have developed such strong friendships with so many of their clients, they have gained a following of people who want to see them succeed.

Cut And Taste Catering also believes in giving back to the community and does a good amount of catering for charity events.

Nevada’s Top Rated Local® Home Health Care Providers Award Winner: Freedom Home Health Care

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Freedom Home Health Care is a 2019 award winner for home health care providers in Nevada!

If you’re looking for a home health care company who will provide you or your loved with compassionate care and peace of mind, look no further than Freedom Home Health Care.

Freedom Home Health Care has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 4.80 stars, earning them an incredible Rating Score™ of 90.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 home health care providers in all of Nevada!

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

“Your company is very awesome and helpful in service. You have a very caring and loving employee working for you. Trisha Madrigal takes great of her patients. She has a big, loving heart and cares very much about her patients. I would recommend anyone to your company that is looking for great home health service.” – Shelly C.

Not Your Average Home Health Care Provider

Michele Lybrook, the owner and Director of Freedom Home Health Care, generously gave us a few minutes of her 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 Freedom Home Health Care apart from the many other home health care providers in Nevada. Here’s Michele’s response:

“I have been in this kind of business for over 20 years! I started small, just being a caregiver on my own first. I like people and know the ins and outs on both ends — in the office and out in the community. I get to know the families and my employees, and our employee retention is really great! We’re a good honest company. Our families really like our caregivers!”

Michele went on to add:

“We’re always hiring! Working with people that can’t do things themselves is very rewarding!”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Freedom Home Health Care and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Michele had to say:

“We want to be known as an honest, reputable company. Families don’t want to worry about their loved ones. We send the same caregivers to keep continuity. This helps the families feel more comfortable and builds familiarity with the elders that we work with. It’s easy to see changes when it’s the same caregiver.”

Building Success by Encouraging Reviews

When we asked Michele about Freedom Home Health Care’s secret to such a strong online reputation, she said:

“I encourage my employees to get good reviews. I recently challenged my employees to garner reviews for us in a contest. I noticed that a lot of care agencies didn’t have many reviews, and many of them were negative. I thought that if I asked, I could get some positive feedback.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Freedom Home Health Care has spread the word about who they are and what they do mostly through word of mouth; although, they are also very involved in their community through the Sparks fire department and have a safe program for older adults.

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

“Don’t give up! Think outside the box sometimes, and get your employees to help and give feedback. They know what is going on outside the walls of your office. Your employees are your biggest asset!”


Congratulations to the team at Freedom Home Health Care for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Michele, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Freedom Home Health Care in Reno. Visit their website today!

Another thing that sets Little Hearts Child Care Center apart is how Louiza treats her employees, many of which have been there for a long time. She works hard so that it doesn’t feel like work to them and becomes a part of their lives.

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Little Hearts Child Care Center. Louiza told us that her dream is to open a private daycare with a charter school right next to it so that she could take care of her kids all the way through 12th grade.

Not Your Average Catering Company

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Phil Hyatt, co-owner of Carson City BBQ.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Phil about what makes Carson City BBQ unique compared to the many other catering companies in Nevada. Here’s what Phil had to say:

“We do all you can eat and cook fresh, on-site barbecue. Nobody else does that. Winning 80 awards for your cooking and being in business for 22 years with a spotless reputation doesn’t hurt either.”

Phil went on to add:

“We do all-you-can-eat and cook fresh, professional barbecue catering, so when we do our catering, it’s second to none. We do everything fresh that day. We don’t rewarm; we remake. I actually bring a cook or two to them and cook fresh right on-site, so it’s very unique. We make all our own sauces, rubs and marinades. We’re the bomb!”

We also asked Phil about the Carson City BBQ mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s his response:

“[Our mission is to] cook fresh and serve fresh; that’s our key.”

Building Success Through Next-Level Service

When we asked Phil about Carson City BBQ’s secret to such a strong online reputation, he said:

“Most of the time, people get done with our service and say, ‘Wow, that was awesome! I’m going to go give you great ratings on Yelp or wherever.’ And I hear that all the time. I don’t petition these people. They’re asking all the time, ‘Hey, how can I help?’, and they say they’re going to go do it.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Carson City BBQ has grown through word of mouth, and it doesn’t hurt that they’ve been in business for 22 years and serve approximately 3,000 people per week, either.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Phil’s expert advice for them:

“Communicate with your customers; find out what’s good; find out what’s bad, and accentuate the positive.”


Congratulations to Carson City BBQ for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Phil, for taking the time to speak with us!
