Peterborough entrepreneur Raj Regmi has expanded his hotel and restaurant business with the takeover of a historic venue.

Mr Regmi, who operates two restaurants in Ferry Meadows, Peterborough, among six across the country, has just taken over management of the Fuel Tank Kitchen located in a niche village called Engine Yard, in the grounds of Belvoir Castle, in Leicestershire.

The Engine Yard was designed by the Duchess of Rutland and was created by converting unused workshops and offices into luxury rural units to enhance the area’s reputation as a destination location.

Raj Regmi at Ferry Meadows cafe in Peterborough – he has just taken over operations of the fuel tank kitchen at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire.

Mr Regmi said: “We decided to take over the fuel tank only because it is a beautiful site with such potential.

“The site is already working effectively, and we can add much more value to it and create a destination in its own right.”

Describing his future plans for the venue, Mr. Regmi said, “Fuel Tank is currently run as a cafe with counter service.

“Our vision is to run it like a restaurant with table service.

The fuel tank, located in the engine yard at Belvoir Castle, was taken over by Peterborough contractor Raj Regmi.Ge

“We will buy all the local meat and bread in the castle park, and we will resell it on the restaurant’s plate.

“We will start afternoon tea to match the decor around next month.

He said: “We want to use the three floors that the magnificent building has to offer our residents and visitors.

“We want to bring the ‘locals’ back to the fuel tank and we want them to use us as a meeting place.

“We will also be working hard on marketing the venue as a local event venue.

“We really want to work hard with our Balloon Bar to make it the most stylish cocktail bar in Lincolnshire, because it looks incredibly pretty.

“Ultimately, we want to serve good, simple food that everyone loves and enjoys every day, from breakfast to lunch.

“We’re aiming to open the upstairs on Friday and Saturday nights as a dinner destination as well, so watch the space.”

Mr Regmi, who won Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2017 Peterborough Telegraph Business Awards, is the manager of the family-owned Meadow Brown Restaurants.

Mr Regmi said: “In terms of inflation and current energy prices, it will be more difficult than Covid.

“With Covid, we knew things would be back to normal one day soon.

“As a business, our current estimated energy cost is dropping from £132,000 per year to £395,000 per year.

He warned: “This could be the toughest year for us.”

A Belvoir Castle spokesperson said: “We are delighted to confirm that we have appointed an experienced Fuel Tank hospitality and catering operation to help us provide the best possible deal to our visitors to the Engine. Yard.”

Offsite 222, an event venue in downtown Springfield, opening in November with plans for a restaurant incubator underway https://embroidery2u.com/offsite-222-an-event-venue-in-downtown-springfield-opening-in-november-with-plans-for-a-restaurant-incubator-underway/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 09:00:00 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/offsite-222-an-event-venue-in-downtown-springfield-opening-in-november-with-plans-for-a-restaurant-incubator-underway/

By November, Alfredo Orejuela expects 222 Worthington St. to be a bustling place. It’s the location of a new venture called Offsite 222, an event venue for wedding rehearsals, political events, art exhibits and more.

Offsite 222, however, is only the first phase of a two-phase business plan, Orejuela said. The second phase is to create part restaurant incubator, part “ghost” kitchen, called The Standard, where budding restaurateurs can rent a commercial kitchen on the building’s second floor for pop-up catering events and other restore operations.

Orejuela is in partnership with the owners of 1636 North, a restaurant at 220 Worthington Street, to start this ambitious multi-phase business plan. Offsite 222 will offer a 2,500 square foot area that can accommodate up to 150 people. Rashad Ali and Julianny Molinary own the restaurant and Orejuela owns the buildings at both locations.

They plan to create a unique event venue with a focus on developing local culinary talent.

“Phase one of how we envision the central space is a complex entertainment space for private events,” Orejuela said. Over the next year, he said he and his partners hope to have the second floor renovated and a commercial kitchen built for The Standard.

Recently, The Ethnic Study CoWork Cafe & Bookstore vacated space at 222 Worthington Street, its owner saying their growing business needed a bigger space.

“The space is very versatile – it’s mostly a modern industrial event space – where people booking events can customize it to their liking,” Molinary said of Offsite 222. fundraisers and political rallies, private events, wedding rehearsals, baby showers, vendor events and possibly some Sunday football events.”

Ali and Molinary said they expect their restaurant to cater for many Offsite 222 events. “1636 will be the flagship restaurant,” added Orejuela.

“A lot of the dishes we sell here people want on a larger scale,” Ali said. “We also do a lot of private parties here so it’s another space and another area for people to enjoy.”

The restaurant, named after the year Springfield was founded, has an intimate setting with decor dedicated to the city’s history. Ali said he learned his trade working in kitchens in Southern California and in his home state of Massachusetts.

The restaurant offers dishes that offer snapshots of his life of culinary travels: fried lobster tail, fire-grilled jerk marinated chicken and New Zealand spring lamb chops, to name a few. .

1636 North opened in 2020 during the pandemic and Ali described the kitchen as a modern American kitchen.

Restaurant incubator

For restaurateurs using The Standard, the Offsite 222 site will provide a venue for pop-up catering events to showcase emerging talent. Ali and Molinary, who have extensive industry experience, will also mentor occupants of The Standard, which the owners said they hope to launch next year.

“We can match them with already experienced restaurateurs who are already in mentoring roles and have them participate in workshops that will teach them how to work with suppliers, how to negotiate with suppliers, how to properly set up marketing plans and how to really dig into the things that can become extreme cost buckets for restaurants, especially in the start-up phase,” Orejuela said.

There is a 4,500 square foot space on the second floor of the building above 1636 North where the three partners plan to renovate to create additional dining space and build a commercial kitchen. The idea of ​​the incubator is for aspiring restaurateurs to troubleshoot their menus and gain real-world experience catering and cooking for big events with guidance and mentorship, Orejuela said.

“We always wanted to create a restaurant incubator or shadow kitchen that could bridge that gap and create stepping stones for potential entrepreneurs who want to get into the restaurant and hospitality industry,” Orejuela said. A ghost kitchen is a commercial kitchen that typically does not operate for a sit-down restaurant and is optimized for meal delivery.

Renovations to the floor above 1636 North could cost up to $150,000, but Orejuela said they are applying for a grant from the Co-working space program of MassDevelopment, a state program that provides funding to community organizations.

Orejuela said The Standard will provide hourly, monthly and seasonal rates for culinary entrepreneurs, which will be significantly cheaper than raising capital for a traditional restaurant and commercial kitchen, which can reach nearly $250,000.

“There are so many risks involved in any business, and what we’re trying to do here is mitigate some of those risks upfront and provide avenues for improvement,” Orejuela said. , who has 15 years of experience in the world of startups. He owns a 3D printing company called STEAMporio, and he’s a director of Rubicon Holdings, which owns the properties at 222-226 Worthington Street and 232-236 Worthington Street, where Dewey’s Jazz Lounge is located.

Properties owned by Orejuela once housed the Fat Cats Bar and Queenies Island Kitchen. There is a large Black Lives Matter mural on the side of the building owned by Orejuela.

Ali and Molinary said the restaurant incubator will give aspiring chefs and restaurateurs the opportunity to gain real-life experience before embarking on the massive endeavor of running a full-fledged restaurant.

Prior to opening 1636 North, Ali and Molinary said they ran a food truck and had the opportunity to host pop-up dining events that gave them valuable experience before opening their restaurant.

“Western Mass. doesn’t really have a lot of commercial kitchens or areas for aspiring entrepreneurs,” Molinary said. “Which is definitely something we struggled with coming into the world of food trucks as well. We hope The Standard will be an easier way to start your business for up-and-coming entrepreneurs.

Chophouse Reserve expands with events center https://embroidery2u.com/chophouse-reserve-expands-with-events-center/ Tue, 13 Sep 2022 12:44:31 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/chophouse-reserve-expands-with-events-center/

The interior or Chophouse Reserve, a new event center in Cedar Rapids that will open in October, features high-end furnishings and divided areas for different purposes. (Chophouse downtown)

CEDAR RAPIDS — About a year after opening the Chophouse Downtown in a short time, owners Ryan and Joe Avila-Burillo are expanding with a new event center.

Chophouse Reserve, opening in ground floor space adjacent to Chophouse Downtown, plans to open by the end of October in the corner of the Hach Building in the 400 block of First Street SE.

The new space, approximately 6,000 square feet, will include an upscale zone with a chef’s table and partitioned areas for more intimate meetings. With the connected Chophouse Downtown, up to 15,000 square feet are available to rent for private parties. The Chophouse Reserve space alone can accommodate 237 guests.

Ryan Avila-Burillo said the new opening, available only to rent for private, ticketed events, was prompted by the lack of large rental spaces downtown.

“We have built our brand around the downtown business sector. We have such large businesses downtown…and there really aren’t many private dining options that can accommodate the capacity of what they bring.

The new space can accommodate everything from small birthday parties and cocktail parties to large corporate meetings.

With exposed brickwork similar to Chophouse Downtown, the space built in 1899 will bring modernized luxury accommodations. With an on-site kitchen — relatively rare with local event centers — parties can take advantage of dining opportunities with Chef Joe Avila-Burillo.

The building’s unique features and history will also be leveraged. Eventually, the vault will be transformed into a wine cellar from which planners can manually select wine.

Venue change adds flavor to SomerHarvest’s return | New https://embroidery2u.com/venue-change-adds-flavor-to-somerharvests-return-new/ Fri, 09 Sep 2022 22:30:00 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/venue-change-adds-flavor-to-somerharvests-return-new/

Let’s break bread together.

This is the vibe behind SomerHarvest, a fundraiser for the efforts of Somerset Junior Woman’s Club and a community meal meant to evoke pleasant autumn feelings and bring people together.

Like so many things though, Covid has hampered the holding of the event for the past two years. On Thursday, however, SomerHarvest returned – with a slight makeover but the same energizing fall feel.

“I think it all went really well,” said Wynona Padgett of Somerset Junior Woman’s Club (SJWC), who noted the event was sold out. “I’ve only heard good comments, which makes me really happy because it was a change of venue. I think people liked having the fountain behind them to listen to and the music in front of them. Moreover, you can also see the fountain from the fountain square.

Rather than blocking East Mt. Vernon Street and setting up a long table, the event was moved to Judicial Center Square, where several tables – always of good length – were set up. The sweet sounds of musical group Pleasant Company filled the air, as guests took their places among an assortment of fall festival table decorations (including the creative use of Ale-8-One bottle boxes to hold flowers) and enjoyed a meal made from local ingredients. , from Summit Meats and Burnett Farms.

Local culinary talent Darlene Newell, of Diamondz & Divaz Catering, prepared the meal, which included pork medallions, maple-glazed sweet potatoes, cucumber salad, stringless green beans and buttery rolls , cooked at Amon’s sugar shack. Dessert included savory apple pies made by Padgett’s mother, Norlena, with Haney’s Appledale Farm apples, vanilla ice cream from Prairie Farms and cupcakes from Burke’s Bakery, plus a selection of syrups from Burnett Farms, Woodstock Lavender Company, Kentucky Mountain Honey and Brazen Botanicals.

“It was a pleasure to be part of SomerHarvest,” said Newell. “It’s been a few years, but it was nice to have this event back in the community this year!”

Newell was happy to receive a positive response; “Everyone said everything was great.”

Padgett said he heard lots of great comments about Newell’s food, as well as his mother’s own apple pies (said with a chuckle), and of course the unique atmosphere under perfect, clear September skies. .

She added that it’s likely next year’s event will retain the plaza location, which made things logistically easier than being on the street.

Money raised from the event went to the SJWC Scholarship for Somerset Community College, as well as several other group projects. SWJC has donated nearly $11,000 to the school’s Scholarship Foundation, and Padgett hopes this year’s SomerHarvest returns will put them above that figure.

Couple Asia and Tyler Barrett attended their first SomerHarvest and came away impressed.

“I just think the whole layout was so beautiful,” Asia said. “It was very peaceful and mingling with all the different people was wonderful.”

Tyler added, “The music was awesome; big business. It was just amazing.

Carmel Valley residents have transformed a car dealership into a new event venue, Del Mar Social https://embroidery2u.com/carmel-valley-residents-have-transformed-a-car-dealership-into-a-new-event-venue-del-mar-social/ Wed, 07 Sep 2022 11:25:28 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/carmel-valley-residents-have-transformed-a-car-dealership-into-a-new-event-venue-del-mar-social/

Carmel Valley residents Ayal Abed and Audrey Brand have opened a new event venue in the Sorrento Valley with Del Mar Social. Formerly the Del Mar Motor Cars used car dealership, it is now an outdoor warehouse-style event space with a custom bar and outdoor seating.

“It’s our happy space,” said Abed, a Carmel Valley resident for more than 20 years who owns and operates the place with Torrey Pines High School graduate Brand.

Even when the space was still a car dealership, it was a place to have fun. For 15 years a group of friends met every Thursday in the ‘Man Cave’ out back with its big screen TV, neon lights and fully stocked bar – ‘We cooked, played music, talked and laugh,” Abed said. “And it continues.”

During the pandemic, everything changed for the automotive business: there were shortages and declining sales. Shifting gears, last November Abed and Brand decided to continue transforming the space into an event venue instead.

They knew how much they enjoyed their time in space and knew that others would enjoy it too. The conversion was entirely an effort of friends and family, which Abed says makes it even more special.

Since its opening, Del Mar Social has become a place for birthday parties and concerts, corporate meetings and celebrations of life. The space is used for business meetings and social gatherings, members can attend as long as there is no event going on.

When they started, they simply created a website and a business built by word of mouth. Brand said that for almost every event, a guest has booked another event.

The space can be modified with curtains, stages and screens; furniture can be changed and moved inside or outside. A curtain kit conceals the neighboring building and parking lot. So when guests are outside, all they can see are the scenic cliffs and foliage above the valley.

An interior wall features Instagrammable lights and greenery while a 1970s Toyota Land Cruiser is parked in one corner, a nod to the space’s roots. The Man Cave and its bar also remain available equipment for events.

A kitchen can provide catering, and Del Mar Social helps plan events completely for clients: “We take care of everything,” Brand said of their all-inclusive services.

Abed said Brand was excellent in her role at the car dealership, but he believes it was the job she was born to do, with her customer service and event planning expertise.

“There aren’t many places like this in Carmel Valley,” Abed said. “We think the community needed something like this, to have something nearby, it’s not a long way, it’s just in your backyard.”

Del Mar Social is also committed to giving back to the community. After an event held at their space, they partnered with the Warrior Resource Project of Escondido to help provide vehicle donations to families in need, using Abed’s connections in the industry.

“This, in my opinion, is the best change we could have made,” Abed said. “We appreciate every event that comes here.”

Del Mar Social is located at 3444 Tripp Court, Suite A. To learn more or book an event, visit delmarsocial.com

Ubly couple will bring wedding venue and RV resort to Port Austin https://embroidery2u.com/ubly-couple-will-bring-wedding-venue-and-rv-resort-to-port-austin/ Thu, 01 Sep 2022 04:10:24 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/ubly-couple-will-bring-wedding-venue-and-rv-resort-to-port-austin/

A major project is underway in the village of Port Austin, where a wedding reception venue, called The Glenn Royal, is being built, made from reclaimed wood from a 100-plus-year-old barn. (Photos by Seth Stapleton)

PORT AUSTIN – A love of old barns and a desire to fill a need in the county led a local couple to pursue a business in the village of Port Austin.

Just over 50 days ago husband and wife duo Perry and Paulette Heleski began construction on what will be called The Glenn Royal – a barn for wedding receptions and other large gatherings. If you take a drive to their location at 8692 Bridge St. in Port Austin, you can quickly tell that the couple — with lots of help from most family and friends — are making great strides in the effort. .

“We’ve always loved old barns — we’ve always loved them,” Paulette said. “And we just knew there was some kind of need.”

Paulette explained that she and Perry had been talking for many years about the idea of ​​building a place like The Glenn Royal.

In recent years, they stumbled upon a property in Caseville that they liked, but discovered it was not intended for commercial use. Eventually, they landed on the current property in Port Austin – a 17.5-acre parcel behind PAK’s garage, which runs along Bird Creek and stretches from Spring Street to Grindstone Road.

Because they didn’t need the entire acreage for The Glenn Royal, the Heleskis decided to split the parcel into two entirely separate businesses and will use the remaining land to create Bird Creek RV Resort.

“Obviously you invest in this property, we had to use it,” Paulette said.

Paulette said their vision for the business was to provide a nice, quiet, well-maintained resort – primarily geared towards retirees who love the area but struggle to find reservations at nearby resorts.

She went on to say that the resort will have a long list of rules and regulations for campers to follow, such as RVs must be 10 years old or younger. She said she hopes this will help ease the concerns of some area residents who have balked at the idea.

“It will be a very upscale resort with very high standards,” she said. “It’s going to be very high-end. But I understand that people are worried.

Upon completion of both projects, which Paulette said are tentatively scheduled for spring 2023, The Glenn Royal will employ approximately 10 people, with Bird Creek RV Resort employing a few others, in addition to family members.

The Glenn Royal will include a catering kitchen, accommodations for brides and bridesmaids, two lofts, a dance floor and several chandeliers, as well as a small wedding chapel and six small family cabins on the grounds.

Made from reclaimed wood from a 100-plus-year-old barn, the venue will seat up to 425 people, measuring 116 feet long by 38 feet wide.

“It’s going to be super stylish,” Paulette said.

The RV complex will be completely separate from the barn site and will include a total of 69 campsites, each equipped with a concrete slab and patio, full hook-up, bathhouse and will be fully fenced. It will be a seasonal complex, operating from spring to November.

“There’s been a lot of thought put into that,” Paulette said. “It will be perfect for this community and all business owners.”
