Exploring Life & Business with LeNiece & Chris Elliott of Trio Banquet Center & Rentals

Today we’d like to introduce you to LeNiece & Chris Elliott. Them and their team share their story with us below:

LeNiece started Trio Banquet Center & Rentals several years ago under a different name with a close friend as a hobby. LeNiece’s husband (Chris) joined the business soon after and their hobby soon turned into a passion for event planning and acquiring event items that can be rented out.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Starting any business is not an easy process, and I would be lying if I said there were not challenges. When we were first starting out my husband, Chris, and I were both still working full-time jobs and had three little ones at home. It was a challenge balancing work and home, but it was an obstacle we overcame. Then there’s always wondering if the work you are doing is good enough, especially being minorities in our industry.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Trio Banquet Center & Rentals?
We are a family-owned business that’s been serving the community for over ten years. Our name Trio represents our three kids and the fact that three has been a significant number in our lives. I started Trio Banquet Center & Rentals several years ago under a different name, with a close friend, as a hobby. My husband, Chris, joined the business soon after and our hobby turned into a passion for event planning and acquiring event items that can be rented out. Starting out, we did event coordinating and party rentals from our home. Now we are blessed to be able to offer a venue and party supply rentals. Years of experience coordinating events and forming relationships with numerous vendors has helped us create a dependable and successful business. We are a one stop shop and are able to give you more bang for your buck. We provide our clients with a warm homey feel, along with quick service. By the end of their service, we build a great relationship that gives them the desire to return. It’s an honor for us to help people celebrate special moments.

In terms of your work and the industry, what are some of the changes you are expecting to see over the next five to ten years?
We are definitely growing. Covid has allowed us to expand in ways we didn’t imagine. We have also been able to come up with new services.
