From Start-Up to Serving the Stars: Hungry Bee Catery
The business received plenty of exposure this summer, when Hungry Bee emerged from an extensive screening process to win the catering bid for the RNC, providing what McCune Gibson called “the opportunity of a lifetime” to meet and serve Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump, Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence, Dr. Ben Carson, Newt Gingrich and other GOP leaders and their families.
The gig landed Hungry Bee media coverage in the Cleveland area as well as nationally, including a spot on CNN. McCune Gibson said it wouldn’t have been possible without help from KeyBank's small business banking services, which provided a line of credit to secure the bid when Hungry Bee’s former bank balked.
“Key stepped up to the plate when we needed someone to believe in us and the vision we had for Hungry Bee,” McCune Gibson says. “(KeyCorpChairman and CEO) Beth Mooney has been a great friend and mentor for us, and the relationship we have with Key has been a big part of our success.”
