What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We engage through email. They send a request with event details and some or all of thier menu selections. We respond with a proposal that they can review and tweak. If anytime throughout this process they want to speak to a catering professional, we are "always on the clock."

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Similar to many if not most in this field. All my training has come from practical on the job experience. I have been in the restaurant business since I was 15 years old and worked along side quite a few chefs; both those who have achieved the title through their work and those who have graduated cullinary. I have owned and operated a restaurant since 1997. Personally, I am not concerned with my title. I continue to innovate, compete and learn from  my peers in the field. There is no finish line to food; as with life one continues to evolve along with the food they prepare.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

All catering prices are located on our website. Menu items that are not shown on the website, such as those created specifically for 1 client or one event are sent to the client in a proposal format where they have the opportunity review and tweak. In general, our prices are middle to upper middle range for our geographic area. Our portions are generous and our clients are almost always completely satisfied with the entire experience.

How did you get started in this business?

Owners Bill and Effie Marvelis are a husband-wife team with over twenty-five years experience in all facets of the restaurant business. The Sunshine Grille is not their first venture, as Bill and Effie each owned their own restaurants when they first met over fifteen years ago.

Effie was part-owner of Sandwich King, a beer and breakfast joint in the Lexington Market. The menu appealed to those working the graveyard shift at the University of Maryland and other twenty-four hour facilities in Baltimore. Nearing six in the morning, lines would start to form with tired and hungry customers waiting to scarf down pancakes, waffles, eggs or breakfast sandwiches. All these breakfast items were washed down with a cold draught beer.

Bill was the owner of Andy’s, a veritable cheese steak factory also located in the Lexington Market. Two six-foot grills powered this amazing place: one for cooking and the other for serving. Huge mounds of tender, perfectly seasoned beef were stuffed into a sub rolls and dressed to the customers’ liking. At this time, Bill was also running Mount Olympus, a Greek and vegetarian stall located right next to Andy’s.

Sunshine Grille is the amalgamation of all three business into a Bistro-style restaurant. Wine and mustard colored walls combined with earth toned tiles create a casual yet elegant atmosphere at the Grille. The patio attracts early risers for breakfast and good friends for cocktails and appetizers in the evenings.
