Envolve LLC, one of the country’s largest multifamily property owners and managers (local to the Memphis market since 1979 as LEDIC Management Group) recently purchased brunch from Catherine & Mary’s for all residents at The Chisca on Main apartments in downtown Memphis. Envolve founded its Resident Lunch Program shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and it has already made its way through many regions within the company’s geographic footprint.
“The Envolve Resident Lunch (or in this case, brunch) Program serves as another opportunity for us to give back to our communities,” said Jake Turner, SVP, Operations & Compliance for Envolve Client Services Group. “After a particularly challenging year for the restaurant and service industry, this event was a great way to support both our amazing residents and a favorite local restaurant.”
For over six years, Envolve has proudly managed The Chisca on Main (formerly the historic Chisca Hotel), an iconic renovation featuring 166 luxurious apartment homes. This renewed building is also the home of downtown favorite, Catherine & Mary’s—so the restaurant choice was a perfect fit.
Eagerly awaiting the delicious offerings, residents quickly formed a line outside of the Chisca Ballroom on 5/1. This event featured a grand selection of breakfast favorites, including polenta, bacon, quiche, biscuits, mimosas, and juice. Property staff set up socially distanced tables for those who wished to join in person, but to-go options were available as well. Envolve also gave away water bottles featuring the company logo.
“Thanks again for the cool gesture—it really made my Saturday to be able to shuffle down in sweats and get some great food!” said Chisca resident, Michael Shults.
The Envolve Resident Lunch Program has since made its way to Michigan and is headed to Florida with many more residents and communities to serve.
“The program concept is simple,” said Daniel Hughes, Chairman & CEO of Envolve LLC. “We treat our wonderful residents to lunch while supporting the amazing communities we serve. We always choose local restaurants since they were generally hit hardest by COVID. The big picture can be summed up by our tagline, which is Making Communities Better Together.” ###
