A homegrown company founded in 1999, we are honored to be one of the region’s premier catering and events companies. Our team of more than 100 service staff and culinary professionals is dedicated to providing attentive, friendly service and delicious food.

Our commitment to our clients and ourselves to create unforgettable experiences begins with our deep partnerships with regional suppliers and vendors and ends with a common goal to exceed our clients’, and their guests’, expectations.

We are rooted in our region, sourcing fresh and local ingredients from area producers and farmers.  Our menus reflect the bounty of the Pacific Northwest to create unique culinary experiences. In contributing to our local economy and agriculture community, we demonstrate a sustainably-minded sourcing strategy that benefits everyone.

Our venues maintain the authenticity of their origins with a subtle infusion of elements that reflect our company style. You’ll find a special attention to detail that is inherent in everything we do.

By consistently wowing our clients and improving our practices for nearly fifteen years, we have become a renowned full service catering and events company. We also had the privilege of opening our own restaurant, Fresh Bistro in spring 2009.

Speaker:  Don Stout of Edward Jones Investments

As your Edward Jones branch team, we believe it's important to invest our time to understand what you're working toward before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I can also help with your retirement savings so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.

I began my Edward Jones career in 2013 as a financial advisor in Mercer Island, WA. Prior to coming to Edward Jones, I worked for Genesee Investments, a hedge fund of funds, located in Bellevue, WA, from 1995 to 2011. In addition, I worked for Coldstream Capital Management, a wealth management organization also located in Bellevue, from 2011 to 2012.

I earned a bachelor of science degree in finance from the University of Idaho in 1993 and an MBA from Pacific Lutheran University in 1994.

My wife, Kara, and I have been married since 1995, and we have two daughters. Originally from Genesee, Idaho, where I grew up on a wheat farm and cattle ranch, my family and I have lived in Bellevue since 2000.

I am currently a trustee for the Barker Wealth Management Foundation at the University of Idaho and a member of the advisory board of the University of Idaho Department of Business.

At Edward Jones, we're focused on you. The firm has thousands of people and advanced technology supporting our office so that we can help you reach your long-term financial goals.
