Winner of the June 2012 Momentum/3AW Small Business Award
We are pleased to advise that the winner of the June 2012 3AW Momentum Awards is:
The Grand on Cathies Lane
The transition from an aging, dilapidated venue to an elegantly appointed function centre has been a gradual process. The Owner of The Grand, Jude, tells us that It started over five years ago when they identified a need for a function venue ready to take on its competitors and offer unforgettable experiences for schools and businesses in the south eastern suburbs.
The potential of The Grand on Cathies Lane was realised immediately; situated on 4.5 acres with the capacity to cater up to 600 guests, the venue boasts an open plan pillarless room with unobstructed views to an elevated stage and has onsite parking for up to 280 car spaces.
It has taken years of hard work to build their client base, but build it they have. As a family owned business they built their reputation by cultivating relationships based on trust and flexibility and by exceeding the expectations of their customers. The end result is a loyal and growing clientele. Today over 90% of our schools have rebooked functions with us over three consecutive years.
As with all successful businesses, The Grand’s people are their best advertisement. From the front of house and serving staff, to the chef and authentic cooks, the colloquially named “grandsters” are outstanding. Embracing the philosophy of family, they are dedicated to being the best they can be for the customers and are truly the Grand’s biggest success measure.
Today The Grand of Cathies Lane has a vision to be the leading and preferred venue in the south eastern suburbs for school, corporate and social functions. They aim to be the benchmark for their industry and their momentum continues to grow.
SBMS was impressed with the passion of Jude and his team. The desire to create a business that respects its surrounds, the neighbourhood and the clientele while providing a first class event with first class service will serve the Grand well.
The Grand on Cathies Lane are a worthy winner of the 3AW/Momentum Small Business Award.
SBMS would like to congratulate Jude and his team on developing the business and wish them, every future success.
