For those of us not located in the North Eastern part of the United States, Ridgewell Catering is a prominent catering company that was founded by two immigrants in love during the early 20th century. They built an empire with their purple trucks catering for celebrities, presidents and those who could afford the famous purple truck to be outside their home.
For the past few months, the title has just been Ridgewell on Native Ink’s website. Well, that should be changing soon. Our now “more official” working title is to be:
The true story of a family, their tiny ‘start-up’ and the startling voyage they made in just three generations from servants to the titled to the most recognized service business in America.
This book fascinated us as it takes you through the process of immigrating to America, finding a job, fitting in and starting one of the largest catering companies on the east coast.
Our new release date will be the latter part of April 2014.
I am very excited to finally have something more concrete to present our readers and those who have been anticipating this book. If there is anything I learned from fiction vs. non-fiction is that 6 months from signing a contract to publication isn’t enough time. Our authors need more time than those who write fiction. It’s simply food for thought. Our first release is on the cusp of being pushed back to March or our original April release will be moved up to March. We will let everyone know as we work things out!
