Business Success Story
Featuring Stephanie Shimp, Blue Plate Restaurant Company
Stephanie Shimp has been in the hospitality business for 25+ years. As owner of Blue Plate Restaurant Company she’s gone from waiting tables, to owning the tables she was waiting on, to owning tables in restaurants all across the metro and at the State Fair. Stephanie says whatever success she’s achieved in more than two decades has been made possible by staying true to one guiding star- that star is passionate hospitality. She says, “we have built our culture at Blue Plate around doing what’s right for the guest and taking care of each other.” These are simple words, but they really do mean a lot. Stephanie's easy going smile and quick laugh turn every table into a family table, and make every mouthful and sip about joy, love and life. This unyielding dedication to the guest is what makes her neighborhood restaurants feel like home.
