The Spokane Journal of Business did a feature in this week’s edition, about what local business are doing in the midst of the quarantine measures Desiree with Commellini Estate answers that question and discusses what our team is working on.
Commellini Estate Venue and Event Restaurant has been in my family for 79-years, since Albert and Leda Commellini first opened the business in 1941. The venue was remodeled in 2009 and re-opened as primarily a wedding & event venue. Since then, we have added cooking classes and our gourmet product line, which is sold on location and at local farmers’ markets.
Normally, we are preparing the venue for an upcoming busy season of both indoor and outdoor events. With COVID-19, we have been forced to reschedule our March 20- May 4th events, but our coordinators are still working hard to help plan the future weddings and events, as we are optimistic that all events in June and beyond will continue as planned. In the meantime, to keep our hardworking and deserving team members employed, we have launched a more robust line of Meal Kits 2 Go, along with our Gourmet Retail Line, and are offering curbside pickup. Our team has been extremely creative, even hosting a DriveThru Easter Egg Hunt this past weekend to not only provide a fun and safe community event, but to help rev up business and marketing for our product line and other local businesses.
