Boston Showcase Co. featured in Food & Drink Intl Magazine
Boston Showcase Co. started as a family-owned carpentry business 102 years ago, building showcases and store fixtures for retail stores. After a while the Starr family got into building bars, which led them into the foodservice industry that they have succeeded in throughout the years. Today, Boston Showcase’s clients include restaurants, universities, hospitals, hotels, country clubs and assisted living facilities.
Boston Showcase Co. is now owned and operated by Alan and Jack Starr, carrying on a tradition from their father Jason and grandfather Max. And a fourth generation is poised to carry on the family business as Jack’s son Matthew grows his career with the company. The Starr’s pride themselves on a family culture and extend their family values to their staff, most of which have found a place to make a home and career for themselves.
“It’s rare that someone comes to work here and leaves. We treat them like part of our family. We want people we can count on and they can count on us.” – Alan Starr
Boston Showcase consistently trains and promotes the long-term values that the company has been built on. Kingswood has benefited from these values having the opportunity to meet and train with the Boston Showcase staff on several occasions. The close, personal relationships that Boston Showcase fosters helps keep most of their client base loyal and provides a great foundation for repeat and referral business.
“We are an old company and are relatively content with modest growth. We are not looking for huge new markets or expansions in the immediate future. We are focused on doing a good job at what we do now.” – Alan Starr
