Lisa Platti  at Cue2Go 

I recently chatted with Lisa Platti, co-owner with her husband Brad Renner of Cue-2-Go.  I found out that their business has been around for quite some time, and, actually there are 3 businesses.

Brad and Lisa met at a catering service they both worked for and after a bit of match-making attempts by the owner they got married.

Since Brad was a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America it was natural for he and Lisa to aspire to own their own food business; this all came to fruition in 1986.  Lisa made a point of telling me they started Renner's Creative Celebrations, Inc. the catering portion of their business in January and what was significant about that was that this time of year is in the dead of winter, so for the first several months very little happened.  Since then they have catered many events ranging from an event for just two up to events with 800 in attendance.  On one occasion, they did a wedding anniversary dinner for a couple who could not go out for dinner.

Then, ten years ago, they decided to add to the business by starting Renner's Creative Cuisine an on-line business to sell all the wonderful deserts, rubs, salsas and chutneys that Brad made.  Of course, I had to ask for example of  an item that sells well. Lisa told me that the walnut diamond desert cake was a hot item and she walked over to a counter and brought back a piece for me to try. I, too, thought it was very good.  She also mentioned that men especially loved the smoked pickled Jalapeno, because it is both hot and smoked.  They have much repeat business and have clients who buy large quantities year after year.

Then, three years ago they decided to add more products. Both Brad and Lisa love barbecue so this was an easy choice.  They converted a refrigerator into a smoker and that is how Cue-2-Go was launched.  Now, people stop by to pick up all sorts of barbecue meals.  This is actually how I was introduced to the business - my son loves barbecue.  When I was planning a menu for his graduation party he requested that I incorporate some of Brad and Lisa‘s barbecued meats.

Jennifer That is an excellent hyper-local business post.  I like the idea of converting an old refrigerator into a smoker - very innovative
