Our Story

On Board Hospitality Management Group, a beacon of resilience and innovation, was established in 2020 amidst the challenges of COVID-19. The brainchild of Bruce, a seasoned Food & Beverage Director at a Hilton property, and Tiana, his partner in both life and business, On Board was born out of adversity when Bruce found himself jobless due to the pandemic's impact on the hospitality industry. Together, they embarked on a new venture, leveraging their combined expertise to create a unique entity in the hospitality landscape.

Bruce, with his extensive background in catering, and Tiana, with her flair for charcuterie, laid the foundation for what would become a thriving full-service catering and event company. Starting with just two divisions and a team of two, On Board has seen remarkable growth, expanding to include twenty-five dedicated employees and broadening its services to encompass staffing and party rental divisions. This expansion is a testament to the company's commitment to excellence and adaptability in meeting the evolving needs of its clients.

Today, On Board Hospitality Management Group stands as a testament to the power of vision and perseverance, continuously evolving and now venturing into venue management. With a focus on providing exceptional service and creating unforgettable experiences, On Board is not just a company; it's a story of turning challenges into opportunities, making it a distinguished name in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill's vibrant hospitality scene.

This journey of growth and diversification underscores On Board's position as a leading black-owned, veteran-led catering and event service provider, committed to excellence and innovation in the hospitality industry.
