Dana Garrett

Staffing Coordinator

What is your favorite color scheme at an event? My favorite color scheme at an event would have to be peaches and pastel pinks with ivory as a base color. I think it brings a soft elegance to any event and can be used to purpose multiple events such as weddings, baby showers, retirement parties, etc. What is your favorite food item at Biscuits and Berries? Basil Spiced Chicken Breast. It comes with a prosciutto cream sauce and when that is served on top of our creamy asiago risotto, you have one of the best flavor combinations ever. What are you the most thankful for in your life? I’m thankful for where I am at in my life. I have a great job with coworkers that are more like family than friends. I am also thankful for having the opportunity to rise in a company where there are a lot of voices to be heard. Dana joined Biscuits & Berries in 2009 as part of our award-winning service staff. In 2010, Dana joined the sales team, assisting with corporate events and most recently she has taken on an even greater role in our social event designer team. Dana’s smile and personality keep our customers and our employees coming back, day after day. Dana@biscuitsandberries.com

Gwen Michale Neely

President and CEO Biscuits & Berries Catering
Gwen has devoted her passion, experience and vision to the hospitality industry for more than three decades, beginning her restaurant management experience in Evergreen, Colorado in 1978. Wanting to broaden her management experience, she moved to Denver in 1982 and continued her hospitality management career under the personal tutelage of Mr. Robert C. Gaiser and the Gaiser Corporation, a billion-dollar management company owning multiple high-end hotels, country clubs and golf courses between Arizona and Colorado. From a grassroots beginning and a total investment of only $7,000, Gwen began her own venture opening Biscuits & Berries Catering in 1992. Ms. Neely's focus on providing outstanding customer service led to the beginning of Biscuits & Berries’ many accolades, having been awarded Emerging Small Business of the Year after just five years. Learning from a very young age to stretch every dollar (and quarter!), she set forth to build a company with these same principles. Offering our clients the best product and service for their dollars has made Biscuits & Berries Catering the #1 recommended wedding caterer in Colorado.
