As we are still in Mother’s Day celebratory mode, we raise a toast to a mother-son duo who, Thursday last, officially opened their second location at Premier Business Park on Red Hills Road.
There were prayers, heartfelt speeches, tears, laughter, a mother/son dance and the musical styling of DJs Colin Hinds and Krazy Kris as Claudette “Miss T” Tenn and her son Marvin, who have worked tirelessly for 13 years to establish M10 Bar & Grill as a go-to destination for top-notch local fare, crafted cocktails, and positive family vibes.
Devoted customer Juliet Holness, member of parliament for St Andrew East Rural, in her address, congratulated the Tenns: “I believe that we all should be invested in ensuring that an excellent Jamaican company with excellent food and excellent taste of our culture survives and continues to do well.”
The event attracted other politicos, including Julian Robinson, MP St Andrew South Eastern (the Vineyard Town location is in his constituency), who added his personal congratulations. “I want to big up Marvin and Mrs Tenn on the opening of the Red Hills location. I have been a customer even before I was a Member of Parliament. This is a great entrepreneurial adventure for both of them and they have a team that has committed themselves to excellence,” he said.
Also revelling in the evening’s bonhomie were corporate heads; Jamaica Observer Food Awards judges and long-standing customers.
The incomparable multi-hyphenate Khadine “Miss Kitty” Hylton handled the proceedings with aplomb. Page 2 offers kudos to marketing consultant Suzanne Hendricks who ensured a seamless event.
