Covington Catering Company Owner Named SCORE Client of the Year

The Delish Dish catering firm and Made by Mavis jellies and jams of Covington were selected top regional businesses Sept. 16 at the annual SCORE luncheon and awards ceremony.

The two businesses are owned by Mavis Linneman-Clark of Bellevue, Ky.

SCORE is the volunteer arm of the Small Business Administration. Its 100-plus mentors provide no-cost mentoring and low-cost small business workshops for entrepreneurs who are high on passion, but need the practical business guidance and support that only seasoned business owners and managers can provide.

The catering company was formed in 2012 to bring globally-inspired dishes and artisan jams to greater Cincinnati and northern Kentucky. Carlin Stamm of Mt. Lookout is Linneman-Clark’s SCORE mentor.

“I consider Mavis the ideal SCORE client,” said Stamm. “She’s smart, prepared for business meetings and passionate, as well as continually cheerful. She has gone in three years from zero income to about $500,000 projected for this year.”

Linneman-Clark had been working with Stamm on her business when she was selected a Bad Girls Venture finalist in the spring of 2013. She joined the Northern Kentucky Incubator Kitchen to expand her catering business and launched an artisan jam line called Made by Mavis.

Rebecca Volpe, director of the Small Business Development Center at Northern Kentucky University, helped Linneman-Clark develop cost information and financial projections in her search for a suitable building for her to purchase, said Stamm.

In 2015, Linneman-Clark was one of the faces of the Kroger Buys Local campaign through the Kentucky Proud program.

SCORE named two other Clients of the Year: Helping Hands of NKY of Florence, Ky., and NANI Massage of Mason, Ohio.

Annual service awards were also announced at the luncheon. SCORE mentors who have volunteered for 10 years include:

Claudia Aviles of West Chester; Bill Haman of Indian Hill; Tom Moon of Cincinnati; and Dick Wendel of Cincinnati;

SCORE mentors who have volunteered for five years include: Brian Hanley of Cincinnati; Dan Herche of Cincinnati; Mary Hurlburt of Cincinnati; Bill Schlueter of Cincinnati; Greg Spontak of Loveland; Carlin Stamm of Cincinnati; and Jane Vanderhorst of Cincinnati.
