#07 Perfect Wedding Days & Expo Lines | Rebecca Annastas of Dream Events & Catering

Buying an Established Business, Creating Systems, Managing People and Getting Real about Business Ownership

Rebecca Annastas, known to her close friends and colleagues as Becki, is the owner and chief manager of Dream Events & Catering. As a full-service event and catering company, Dream Events & Catering provides everything from sensational cuisine and entertainment to seamless planning and design for gatherings all across Middle Tennessee.  

Becki graduated from general manager to owner when she bought the full-service events & catering company after working for the former owner for nearly a decade. In today’s episode, we talked about being focused in your business, the perfect wedding day, transitioning a business & brand under new ownership, creating systems to manage staff and Becki’s career path through restaurants, expo lines and the hospitality industry.

Key Topics

  • Buying a business that is already established
  • Rebranding and transitioning a business
  • Managing people while being a business owner
  • Creating business systems and templates

Listen If

  • You’re interested in buying a business from a current business owner, or are in talks to do so
  • You want inspiration on how and why you should “take up space”
  • You need a push to organize your business systems

Key Takeaways

The thing that I always sort of prided myself on with my staff, when I was running the restaurants, that I was never going to be line cook, I was never going to be the best at any position but I was always who they wanted first to come back there and help them.

You just need to put on an incredibly solid event, and if you’re smart, one you can build on so next year you have the bones ready to go and so you’re not reinventing the wheel.

 Do the task, and do the extra fifteen mins it’s going to take to set up the system for that task, or even just create a mini checklist for that task.

 I wish I had realized that I could be bolder and I could be larger, and not have to be in a small space.
