Business Of The Month Program Saying “Thank You”

August 23, 2017

An Emmetsburg business is implementing a business of the month program to say thank you to the community for their support, and also to promote a new venture. The Cornerstone Pub and Catering by Jade have implemented a Business of the Month program, with the Iowa Trust and Savings Bank being the first honorees.

Cornerstone owners Shannon and Renee Iverson recently launched a catering business, Cornerstone Catering by Jade, earlier this summer, and the new venture is growing.

"We're very humbled by the support of the area since we began catering,"?Shannon Iverson noted. "In two months, we've catered several rehearsal dinners and other events and we have bookings through the first of the new year. The reception has been good so far, and we wanted to find a way to say 'thank you' to everyone for their support."

Thus, the Business of the Month idea came to light.

"We wanted to do something to give back to the community, so we decided to pick a business of the month, and we will take them some samples of products that aren't on our normal menu," Iverson explained. "By reaching out, we can also test new offerings, see what people like. We also want to show people that we're not just a sports-themed pub, that we've got a full menu available for dining and that we also offer our catering service."

The Business of the Month promotion will be offered over the lunch hour on the first Wednesday of each month, according to Iverson. "We'll bring in a sampling of foods we can provide for catering, over a lunch hour, for the employees to try."

Showcasing the catering possibilities by allowing people to try it is just a way for Iverson to give back to the community.

"For us being a locally owned, family business, we've enjoyed the support of the community and this is our way of saying 'thank you' from the Cornerstone Family,"?Iverson said.

With the harvest season approaching, Iverson has already taken some calls and made some arrangements to provide harvest-time meals for busy area farmers.

"Give us a call, we'll work with you to set up arrangements for pickup or delivery," Shannon said. "I'll try anything once and do my best to make it work."
