The Season Events team plans everything from corporate events to weddings to small dinner parties – and each event receives the same attention to detail.
The Season Events was established in 2007 as a homebased business by the owner and president, Holly Lynch. She wanted the company to become a resource for creating meaningful events that would bring people together. Fifteen years later, that is what she has exactly accomplished. The company’s success was recognized as the 2022 Small Business of the Year by the Rome Floyd Chamber at the Annual Meeting.
The company is the community’s only full-service catering and event planning operation. Their team plans everything from corporate events to weddings to small dinner parties, and each event receives the same attention to detail. Lynch says, “I believe we are unique to our industry because our team takes care of each other and takes care of the event like it’s our own personal family’s event. That is reflected to the customer, and they are able to feel like a guest at their own event knowing everything is taken care of properly.” To measure their success, they rely on customer satisfaction, happiness, feedback after completion of the event, and willingness to refer the company in the future.
The pandemic severely impacted the hospitality industry and required innovative strategies to continue operation. In addition, changes were made to comply with each new executive order to ensure the safety of employees and guests.
One of the things the company did was begin a new program – Meals to Go, which enabled them to maintain business. The program was well received and continues to be a service offered weekly. It appeals to working families who may not always attend or plan events.
The company continues to grow. Recently, they have expanded into the Calhoun and Cartersville markets. This has allowed them to share their service and food with a larger customer base.
When Lynch founded the company, she knew the impact that chamber membership can have on a small business and joined the chamber in 2007 and continues to be active. Both Lynch and company vice-president Nicole Williams have completed the Leadership Rome program. Lynch has also served as an ambassador, on membership campaigns, and Operation Thank You.
The company and its employees are active throughout the community. Nearly weekly, the company donates to the Community Kitchen while many team members volunteer there. They also support Rome Little Theatre, the Exchange Club Family Resource Center, Advocates for Children, Rome Noon Optimist Club, and the local art community.
The company has long grown from its home-based start to its current location, at 300 Glenn Milner Boulevard.
