Management

Current Simply Serving owners, Thomas Grenon and William Bunce, purchased the company in October of 2020 after the passing of longtime owner, Ann Marie McCann. Tom has been with Simply Serving since 2014 and wanted to see the company continue on and thrive.

Tom and Bill had been talking for years about running their own business, and they know that Simply Serving is the right fit for them. They aim to uphold the company’s reputation for going above and beyond to ensure each client’s event is a success. They will continue providing the unique and outstanding service you have come to expect, all while nurturing the loyal client relationships that Ann Marie built over the years.

As people prepare for the time when they can gather again to celebrate milestones and life events, Tom, Bill and the Simply Serving staff are ready to offer you their personal yet professional touch, allowing you to spend time with your guests and enjoy the day carefree.
