SC Biz News is speaking with small businesses and community leaders about the impact of the new coronavirus on business and industry, and how this is changing how they operate.
Greenville Chamber of Commerce's website features an article about Leadership Greenville alumna Tammy Johnson, a successful entrepreneur.
Johnson is the founder of Liquid Catering and also owns Bravo One Protection and the venue Old Cigar Warehouse. She also opened a social club called Topside Pool Club and formed a parent company, High Spirits Hospitality, to manage her ventures.
Dear Friends and Family,
Since its inception in 2011, Liquid Catering has continued to grow and prosper, easily being recognized as one of the leading event businesses in the Upstate. I can’t thank each of you enough for your support as we celebrate our sixth year anniversary. I was 26 when I opened my first business, and quite frankly had no idea what I was doing. I have been blessed with an amazing network of vendors and clients who have supported me as well as an exceptional team who have put in countless amounts of blood, sweat and tears to help us get to where we are.
As you are probably aware, in addition to Liquid Catering, I also own The Old Cigar Warehouse and Bravo1 Protection. As we have continued to add other businesses to our portfolio, it has become necessary for us to form a corporate umbrella, so I’m happy to announce the official launch of High Spirits Hospitality. This new organization is structured to provide the administrative support and resources our brands need, particularly as it relates to accounting, human resources and marketing. I personally still own 100 percent of our businesses, but this will enable us to open new ventures that may require investors.
Along with the formation of High Spirits Hospitality, we already have opened another brand, High Spirits Events, an event production company who is producing Tacos n' Tequila Fiestaon April 9th. I can’t tell you too much yet, but we also have a couple more projects in the works that we’ll be announcing in the next few months. In other words, we are as busy as ever! You probably won’t see me slinging drinks on as many events this year - between growing the business and chasing after my one-year old, I’ve had to shift to a more behind-the-scenes focus. However, that certainly doesn’t mean I’m not available by phone or email if you ever need me!
If you have a minute, I’d love for you to meet the rest of our team by visiting our website here. I want to thank you again for your continued support, advocacy and inspiration. I am grateful for every single person we meet every day.
