Full-Service Venue Opens in Lynden
Lynden, Wash. – January 27, 2011 –The Reserve made its first step toward the limelight when it opened its doors at Homestead Golf and Country Club in Lynden, Wash. on Wed., Jan. 26.
Carrie deKubber and Cody Hurlburt finalized their plans to lease the business in 2010, taking control of operations on Dec. 1. The business, which includes a restaurant, lounge, and event coordination, closed early this week in preparation for the grand opening.
“It’s exciting to have something with such great potential,” deKubber said. “I feel like we’re on the brink of something amazing and I hope to see this place flourish like I know it can.”
The Reserve offers a new menu aimed to deliver quality food at an affordable price. Customer service is another priority Hurlburt said he and his colleagues are focusing on, especially during this critical stage of the business.
“I want people to recognize that this is essentially a new facility, having been remodeled last year and now being taken over by new management,” Hurlburt said.
deKubber will dedicate most of her time to the restaurant and lounge, where she is most knowledgeable. deKubber and Hurlburt have a combined 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry, both in serving the public and in the daily operations of running a successful restaurant. The two began working together in Nov. 07 when Hurlburt opened the Birch Bay franchise location of Bob’s Burgers and Brew and hired deKubber as the restaurant’s General Manager.
“I’ve dedicated 14 years to this industry,” deKubber said. “This is what Cody and I know and love.”
The restaurant and lounge aren’t the only facilities and services changing at The Reserve. The larger scale services include a boardroom, loft, 200-person Banquet Room, and outdoor Pavilion able to accommodate 400 guests. The new owners hired an Events Coordinator and Banquet Manager to improve the efficiency of that aspect of their business.
deKubber said she wants people to think of The Reserve when they’re considering venues for upcoming events. The building and grounds offer a diverse range of facilities, which makes The Reserve suitable for numerous organizations and occasions, deKubber said.
“Whether it’s a wedding or a day of golf with your buddies, we want to be a positive part of those memories,” Hurlburt said.
