- Teri and Chef Valerie were looking for a way to showcase their business in the most professional way possible, while still working with their budget.
- They also wanted a way to manage their business on-the-go, as a catering business means they are not tied to an office.
- Thryv came through for Teri & Chef Valerie by allowing all of their menus and invoices to be properly displayed in a professional manner, while enabling them the ease of operating their entire business from the palm of their hand.
Teri and Chef Valerie from Eat-It-Up Catering started as a Personal Chef business. They began to see exponential growth due to Teri's marketing efforts and quickly got to a point where they had to rent out a commercial kitchen to take care of their growing clientele.
Today, Eat-It-Up operates as a full-service catering business. They've done events for corporations, weddings, grand openings for home builders, banks & more. Teri & Chef Valerie are deeply tied to their community as well, offering support to disabled veterans and those who have PTSD. More recently, they cooked up some of their delicious food for a Shriner's Hospital Fundraiser. Valerie & Teri needed a way to show they were both a respectable business and also have a way to communicate with their clients efficiently.
Demonstrating a high level of professionalism is extremely important to Chef Valerie, and this was a big reason she and Teri chose Thryv to help manage their business. With Thryv's Documents feature, she can send Eat-It-Up's branded menus directly to a potential client from the mobile app, even while they are on the road. "No one has to wait to get the information they need," says Chef Valerie. In the past, when a potential client wanted a quote or menu, there has always been an endless pile of papers, post-it notes and text messages to go through - but now that Chef Valerie & Teri have Thryv, everything is centrally located, keeping this small but fierce team of two organized and on top of potential business. Chef Valerie wants to let others know that "because of Thryv, we now have more time to cook our food and drum up more business!"
