In the 1970’s, Robert Risley started our tradition of fine dining with his first restaurants. In the 1980’s, catering services were added to our offering. More than forty years later, he’s still at the helm creating unique venues and exceptional restaurants. What’s the key to our success? Elevating events to experiences by doing what no one else does, and offering every aspect of planning all in one place.
During a company retreat at White Point Beach Resort, Robert Risley got everyone together to put a mission statement down on paper. Plenty of phrases were thrown around that said a lot, but didn’t mean much at all. The conversation kept coming back to the same theme—no request from a client should ever be seen as impossible. From cuisine to décor to entertainment, the answer would always be “Yes, we can!”. Someone said “Why can’t our mission statement be simply that?” and from then on, those three words have been the driving force behind everything we do.
