Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
In 2009, I returned to the family business to operate Party Royal; in 2013, I moved the business to a new, much larger location where—in addition to table and chair rentals—it grew to a full-service event company.
What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?
My first job was packing bell peppers in the fields of Merced County for a family member. I worked there from ages 14-17 and learned that the challenges of hard work are rewarding.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
I grew up in Shingle Springs, Placerville, Camino and Cameron Park, so El Dorado County is home to me. I support many local charitable organizations and shop at local, small businesses whenever possible.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
We care. Our goal is to provide the best customer service possible by offering free consultations and seven-days-a-week availability to assist with and plan our client’s special events. We are more than a rental store—we offer referrals and resources to help make planning events a breeze.
What’s your hidden talent?
I cook Mexican food from scratch. Every year on Cinco de Mayo, I have an event where I prepare my favorite dishes for guests. I’m a pretty good baker, too.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Being able to provide equipment for Lilliput Children’s Services’ annual Christmas party for their children and families. I’ve also enjoyed cooking for the event.
And finally, customer service is…?
Exerting every effort to meet the needs of each individual customer by easing their stress, building their confidence, educating them, and offering support in order to provide the best experience possible.
