Today we’d like to introduce you to Bridgette Baldwin.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve been a bartender for 12 years and after having my daughter, I decided to branch out on my own and offer my services to people outside of the typical bar setting. I started small, doing events for friends and family but in just a short amount of time, my business has grown to service events like weddings, corporate events, holiday parties, baby showers, and even birthday parties.
I currently have a team of three employees that work every week with me, and a few others who fill in as needed. My goal is to be able to personalize our client’s bar experience and make sure that their event is everything they hoped for.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The obstacles I have faced are marketing outlets and trunk space!
The Hive Mobile & Event Bartending – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
The Hive Mobile & Event Bartending is a TIPs certified, fully insured, mobile bartending company that offers bartending services in Phoenix and the surrounding area. We believe in creating the perfect experience for our customers, which includes bringing the bar to you. Our bartenders are all experienced and have worked in a wide range of settings.This allows us to boost our vast knowledge of cocktails, cost-effectiveness when it comes to packages and ordering inventory for events, and of course wowing our guests. We specialize in weddings, company events, private parties, charity functions and anything else our clients can dream up.
We love to customize our packages and include one of a kind cocktails, décor, and even specialty bar set ups. What I am most proud of as a company is that we are female owned and operated and that we take pride in our business and it shows. Our clients love the energy we bring and the services we offer.
We also offer Crafts & Cocktails which is an event where we offer classes on how to create a craft while enjoying one of our specialty cocktail bars.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
For me, success is about growth and being able to look back and see how far I have come from where I started. Again another marker of success for me is waking up and working for myself, not having to work for someone else.
