company located at 105 Mammoth Rd in Lowell,
MA. The owners bought an existing breakfast
and lunch restaurant with a small catering
side business. Six years later is a popular,
thriving and successful catering company.
asked Daniel McCarthy, president of Two Chefs
to describe the work we did in the past six
years, and how our work has affected them and
McCarthy writes…“My partner
and I originally contacted you in August of
2000 to help us create an upbeat looking restaurant
for a seating capacity of 48 people. We were
also hoping to get a quick return on our investment.”
Within a short time you brought two schemes
for us to select, using colors and textures
that delighted and surprised us, based on our
personal needs and using your tested criteria.
We selected one of them and trusted your judgment
given your credentials and recommendations.
We surprised you, when we told you that after
all we could not purchase new furniture, but
must use what was left over from the former
owners. The stuff did not really fit into any
of the presented schemes. You were unruffled.
We were nervous, but again, trusted you. You
did not disappoint us. You incorporated our
selected scheme by creating two huge paintings
custom-made for us, and additional touches
that contributed to an environment that never
made us feel poor. In fact, nobody ever noticed
that we had the same old booths and seats!!!
Within a year the restaurant surpassed our
wildest dreams. The staff and patrons loved
it and we even had to hire an additional chef
because catering began to grow faster than
we anticipated. A year later we called you
in for a consultation because we were considering
selling the restaurant and moving to concentrate
on growing the catering business. A few weeks
after your visit it was clear that we needed
to stay were we were to grow the catering business
and forgo the restaurant. I must confess I
was ecstatic, while Steve, my partner was rather
apprehensive. You were again proven correct.
It worked perfectly. Our staff and patrons
supported us and continue to do so today. In
fiscal year 2005 we have grossed more than
anyone ever imagined. We have taken a new junior
partner and have 2 additional full-time chefs;
support staff, waiters and office personnel
to assure us continued growth. We have a respected
name and a wonderful roster of choice clients.
we love working with you and recommend you
for several reasons:
kept us sane and hopeful in our first
incorporated our suggestions but guided
us when we were moving toward a possible
wrong choice for our needs. You still
helped our old furniture and space look
brand new. We felt proud to show it off.
When the catering business took over,
you gave us new insight and fresh ideas.
We always questioned you. Even now. Yet
you respond with grace and reassurance.
gave us tools to maintain and promote
harmony among staff and clients.
results speak for themselves. We love to
work here, we got a great return on our
investment, we are successful and we are always
grateful for your help.”
