HOLMDEL, N.J. - How do you build and maintain your business? Staying visible and active in the communities you wish to do business with is high on the list. Another key element is being part of an ecosystem that helps nurture your business and adds value over time. That reflects the monthly meetings of the Holmdel Chamber of Commerce.

When is your next Holmdel Chamber Opportunity? This coming Wednesday, June 27th, 5:30 p.m. the Chamber is gathering at Bell Market during their Wednesday Cocktail Time:  Everyone is invited to Bell Market's Weekly Wednesday Cocktail Social Open to the Public at Bell Market in Bell Works. The Holmdel Chamber in lieu of a regular meeting will be gathering at the Bell Market Happy Hour for a social with members of the community and local business networking groups and guests.  

Sommelier and RBC Partner and Beverage Director Chantelle Corbo is creating a special cocktail for the Holmdel Chamber social, as a followup to her dynamic presentation at the May Chamber Meeting. Her recipe will be included for everyone to mix up at home. The Chamber social meet-up will feature two interesting speakers to tune into for a few moments while you sip and enjoy business networking. Monmouth Film Festival President and Founder Nick Marchese will speak for a few minutes about the International Monmouth Film Festival to be held in Red Bank, in August, and ways that your business can get involved. Also, relax and get ready to hear about tips for mindfulness. DragonFly Yoga's Allison Scaramuzzo will discuss the important role that movement and mindfulness play in our daily health and wellness routine. She's going to give us some simple moves we can easily do in our workplaces that can give us more energy, relax our minds and improve our circulation and brain power. This will be fun. The Chamber gathering is informal and casual and will be held in the cocktail area of Bell Market, main visitor entrance.

Now let's recap the Chamber's recent dynamic event meeting featuring the one the only amazing (hear it like this:  'AH! MAY! ZING!!!' ) Chantelle Corbo!  See a sampling of Chantelle's hospitality here in this video-#CelebrateAtWork:

The May 22nd meeting of the Holmdel Chamber of Commerce again featured what it is known for – a great group of business women and men from diverse fields, a great speaker and profiles of important non-profits from around the area that may benefit from the added attention a dynamic business organization can provide. Many guests wore pink, a pink ribbon, or a splash of pink to honor the Paint the Town Pink, Hackensack Meridian Foundation initiative, which was highlighted at the Chamber's April meeting. Paint the Town Pink is to raise awareness for breast cancer prevention. Holmdel Chamber meetings or gatherings are held once a month at a location that is incomparable in its alignment with local businesses and our Holmdel community, Holmdel’s Bell Works.

When entering the Wave Room, upbeat jazz music was playing and there was an enticing aroma of fresh baked goods as various breakfast treats were available. This was not your usual muffins and bagels which of course are good, until you are spoiled by the quality of RBC Hospitality Group.  RBC (which stands for Run By Chefs) and Bell Market served up warm fresh French baked goods from RBC Partner and Chef Jeffrey Sytsma. All was prepared that morning at RBC's Honeybell Bakery, located in Bell Works. The decadent baked goods offered a variety of unique flavors, with fresh rosemary in some, imported cheeses and fruits in others. The guests in the May meeting included many successful business owners and employees who were able to share their industry expertise and network with each other to further their own goals and objectives and to collaborate with others on theirs.

During the first part of the meeting, the room was buzzing with a lot of business networking, fresh hot coffee from RBC and a lot of introductions were made. The mix of businesses was quite different according to one of the attendees, who said she “was pleased that the group included so many new people,” than she would typically see.

Holmdel Chamber Founding member Jeanne Wall said, "That's what is so great about the Holmdel Chamber Meetings. Everyone gets to meet new business contacts because we have such a wide variety of speaker topics which brings in different business groups every meeting. There's an opportunity to reconnect with the faces you know and meet new attendees every month. Many members and guests have reported great stories about networking at the Holmdel Chamber meetings and how it has helped their business.  Holmdel Chamber is an all volunteer organization, and community development and raising awareness of charitable organizations are front of mind. Every meeting includes a business speaker and a nonprofit."  

Every business that attended the earlier portion of the May meeting had the floor to introduce themselves, their business and give their elevator pitch. A lot of smiles, connections and laughter was made. If you don't see your business name and you were there you can be added. The attendees who signed in included:

The May Holmdel Chamber Business speaker was Hospitality Maestro Chantelle Corbo - Sommelier and Partner of RBC Hospitality. Chantelle has been featured in Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, NBC4 NY, The New York Times, Food & Wine, Wine Enthusiast Magazine... and now featured in TAPinto as a Holmdel Chamber Speaker! :-)  She has had 17 years in the beverage industry. Chantelle's mantra is, "Wine should be for everyday, be inspired and humble and always fun filled." Chantelle has traveled all over the world, visiting every wine region from France to Australia to Italy. This contributes to her visual style as well as her exquisite hospitality and unique design influence. Chantelle's hospitality is art in motion. Every detail is attended to with natural and simple accents. Her use of fresh herbs and edible flowers to garnish drinks and trim her table settings blend together style and elegance. 

Chantelle is driven by a passion for sharing the quality in her craft, persistent curiosity to explore food systems and the desire to improve the world in which she works. "I started as a Sommelier right out of high school" said Corbo. She discussed  having a mentor who taught her the foundations of hospitality. She started in Atlanta, Georgia and  "As a young woman in the industry, I think having a good mentor was very important."  She is partners in RBC Hospitality and Bell Market with her husband Richard J. Corbo, a Monmouth County native and graduate of Christian Brother's Academy in Lincroft, NJ.

Richard is 'known for his bright, fresh evolved Italian cuisine'.  He attended The Culinary Institute of Florence, and is the former executive chef at the Tribeca Grill in NYC. Richard says, "Opening up RBC in Bell Works holds a special connection to my roots. My father Richard P. Corbo, was the former producer of all of the signage for the Bell Works building decades ago when it was Bell Labs. From the day I received my driver's license I was tasked with dropping off signage to Bell Labs as part of my regular delivery route. I continued that for a couple years. The wood fire pizza ovens are tiled and read Corbo & Sons. They are named that because I learned how to make pizza from my grandfather when I was only 9 together in a firehouse, and to this day my dad makes the best pizza, its a family tradition. My family has come full circle back to Bell, with my brother Joseph now making all of the signage for the Food Hall. He's a very talented artist who creates the sets and scenery for television shows among many Blue Bloods, Rise and The Divorce. My sister Richelle is not involved in the business but is definitely our number one pizza fan. My wife Chantelle and I could have started a business anywhere and we chose Bell Works because of the personal connectivity to the building and the community. It's really nice to be home."

Bell Market is a re-imagined food hall experience spotlighting five distinct culinary destinations under one roof. Chantelle went over each of the five dining options that will be made available soon to the community and can be sampled daily now at Bell Market Pop Up located in the Bell Works Atrium area near the main visitor entrance. "We are so excited to open and right now you can sample our foods daily at our Bell Market Pop Up and you can also preorder foods online. Visit our website for specials and details and menu's." see website here.   Chantelle gave an interesting presentation spec'd just for the Holmdel Chamber that included an overview of the 5 eateries slated to open very soon. Everyone's appetites were growing as they saw slides on the monitor of the delicious fresh foods soon to be served up regularly. Get your palettes ready for the following: Corbo & Sons Wood Fired Pizza, Honeybell, a bakery specializing in Viennoiserie, Broadfork, a greens and grains concept, The New York style bubz Deli, and Jozu for refined sushi, ramen and robata. Wow! The business community in Bell Works is fortunate to have so many fresh and delicious options and so is the community of Holmdel, which does not have an abundance of restaurants and very few with a liquor license. For the town of Holmdel and nearby communities our dining and beverage options are greatly improving!

That's not all folks, Chantelle will use her advanced sommelier training in her beverage director role, to provide seasonal wines, saki by the glass, and specialty beers on tap. Chantelle says, "RBC Hospitality takes pride in sourcing the freshest and healthiest ingredients and sourcing them as local as possible." Chantelle's warm and hospitable way she has makes you feel like you've arrived at a good friend's home for dinner and the RBC staff seems to all fall into that mode. RBC Hospitality Partners consists of 4 individuals, Chantell and Richard Corbo and Chad Spencer and Jeffrey Sytsma. You can see the team and more information about each of them here.   Also see some of the cooking action going on at Bell Market in the #CookAtWork Video: 

The massive, 6,000 square foot marketplace is located in the heart of Bell Works, on the ground floor in one of the country's most celebrated pieces of mid-century modern architecture, designed by Eero Saarinen. Chantelle gave the Chamber an overview of the amazing variety that is available to tenants and visitors to Bell Works - including upcoming hotel guests - as well as the community surrounding Bell Works. RBC Hospitality has plans to open a bar and grill to serve 150 seated, 30 bar seats and a private event room for 50. That is slated to open late fall of 2018. 

After Chantelle wowed the group, the Chamber group took a walk to see a guided tour of the the layout for the 5 eateries serving selections now at the Bell Market Pop Up and opening soon in Bell Works. It was an educational tour, where guests learned about the business of starting such an operation, the design initiatives and project management involved. It was a way for people to hear from the actual owners, the creators, of the path they chose and the quest to have every detail managed in a precise way. Bell Works is in the process of designing an indoor pedestrian street for the public, tenants and guests with a variety of in demand businesses. They recently signed leases with an additional seven companies you can read about here:

In addition to the Chamber's business speaker, every month a different nonprofit or charitable organization presents to the group to bring attention to important local issues and community development opportunities. Anthony Petruzzi, from Hazlet, is known in many worlds. He is a math teacher in Hazlet Schools. He represents the local teachers union as well. In addition, he serves as Head Coach for the Raritan Rockets. All that said, he takes out time willingly and enthusiastically for a fantastic organization that helps families all year long, the RAINE Foundation. He spoke of the work they have done and plans for the future. 

A little background on the RAINE Foundation:

Since its beginnings, RAINE has positively impacted the Bayshore community –  by providing food, clothing, assistance during the holidays, and various other necessities for families in crisis. The RAINE team, based in Hazlet, NJ, consists of compassionate, caring individuals striving to make a difference in the lives of others.  They are always looking for volunteers!  Please contact them if you’d like to volunteer for this very worthwhile cause! Families who request support, particularly during the holidays, are asked to contact RAINE at 732-865-3555 or by sending an email through their website’s contact form. Services provided include food and/or clothing, and holiday gifts.  If you are interested, please send them an email or call. Projects to watch for include food drives during October and November, and a toy drive in December. They are a positive impact on the lives of families in our community.  For more specific information, feel free to call them at 732-865-3555 or click here

Also, as an added benefit the Co-President of the Colts Neck Women’s Club Patricia Eastman was in attendance – she shared an important initiative for Kateri Day Camp, a Collier Youth Services program.  With support from Diane Turton, Realtors donations are being accepted now of new beach towels and swimsuits to be donated for campers who are in need of them. "You can help Boys and Girls age 5 to 13 by purchasing and dropping off one or more of each at the Diane Turton, Realtors office in Holmdel at 61 East Main Street during regular business hours," according to Managing Broker Sauling Lee of the Holmdel office. Check out Collier camp

Charter members, new attendees and special guests all gathered to share ideas, expand their knowledge and importantly, enjoy each others company. Lots of great companies, great information and laughter. The Holmdel Chamber will be back for a Happy Hour Social on Wednesday June 27th at 5:30 PM. Guests can experience specialty cocktails and make some contacts as well. The gathering is Wednesday June 27th at 5:30 PM gathering where Bell Market will be hosting their cocktail hour.
