Inspired Catering & Events has our WBE certification!
THE IMPORTANCE OF WBE CERTIFICATION
As of January 1, 2016, INSPIRED CATERING & EVENTS BY KAREN AND GINA STEFANI is proud to be WBE Certified.
The Women Business Enterprise Certification is a great tool for women owned businesses to have the exposure for new business opportunities in both the government and private sector. Having a WBE certification will help set a woman-owned company apart in the marketplace, especially in any male-dominated industry, and can also be used to add credibility to the company. However, having Woman Business Enterprise Certification is not a guarantee that you will get new business without effort — you still have to work at it, just as you would any other sales, marketing, or promotional effort!
Simply put, woman business enterprise certification is often required by the private and public sectors in order to do business with them. Woman Business Enterprise Certification enables contractors to identify, quantify and report the extent to which they utilize woman-owned businesses as suppliers. WBE Certification can result in opportunities for your business to develop supplier relationships with larger companies and the public (government) sector.
Increased Competition = Better Value for Purchasing Agents
Many large corporations now understand that it makes good business sense to spend dollars with women-owned vendor firms. Corporate management knows it is good for the public relations and for their local communities, but most importantly for the value they get from the dollars spent with women-owned companies. Virtually all corporations accept third-party woman business enterprise certification, meaning that the corporation does not perform the application and review process. Instead, they rely on third-parties like WBE state programs to provide that service.
We know there are many catering & event companies in Chicago and we feel pride that the WBE certification sets us apart from the others. With a strong sense of family values set forth by Karen & Gina Stefani; INSPIRED CATERING is excited and proud to be among the WBE businesses in Chicago. We look forward for the opportunity to earn your business!!
