We have done business with MARV vendor Platinum Payroll for 8 years and have always received excellent service. Platinum Group has gone above and beyond when we have ever had questions or concerns regarding the ever changing regulations regarding the restaurant industry. The personal attention to detail is why we have them handling all four of our restaurants' payroll. Their new onboarding tool is very innovative and we are enjoying having less paperwork to store and manage. I would highly recommend them to any business.

Being a member of MARV has been a great experience for Postec. Beyond providing an excellent product and service, our goal as a company is to maintain a relationship with our customers. This means that when recommending services outside the scope of point-of-sale, it is important to us that they come from quality companies and people — MARV has allowed us to do just that. The MARV network not only acts as a marketing tool in and of itself; it has provided Postec with a catalog of quality services that we can confidently recommend to restaurateurs.

Working with Greenstone Media has been easier then I could have ever anticipated. Branding was quite daunting for me and I was struggling in developing an image and website to define my company. I knew what type of style I wanted but couldn’t communicate an actual image to build from. I was smitten with the first creative provided to me and couldn’t believe how well my vague desires had been illustrated in a logo. I was also thankful that my minor edits were welcomed and encouraged to insure complete satisfaction. Greenstone is an approachable “one stop shop” for my creative and website needs that I am delighted to have a working relationship with.”

Being part of MARV is a great tool for Blue Ridge Biofuels. The group allows for BRB to recommend professional services for every facet a business or restaurant might need. As a result, BRB also receives a great deal of credibility by being involved with the other members of MARV. The networking and connections made through MARV are by far one of the best marketing tools BRB has.

I have worked with Tamera for more than ten years as a principal designer, creating brand design packages and developing the graphic strategy for any myriad of projects from web design and collateral material to trade show graphics, advertising and electronic elements. Not only is her design aesthetic top notch, but she is an experienced collaborative partner to have on the team when determining the graphic production of any facet of a marketing program, from creative direction for photography and the page structure in a website. She is passionate about design and energized by clients who value it. I love being able to express my thoughts about a product or graphic need and have her consistently make it better than I ever expect. She never disappoints.
