Lauronda Morrow Teeple
A Western North Carolina native, Lauronda's education was in computer science and art, but she began her professional career in advertising and marketing. Evolving quickly into management, she then took a turn into graphic design and the publication industry, where her artistic roots took hold again. Polishing her skills, and gaining community support for her to branch out on her own, she did just that. In 2004, she began her own advertising agency, ThreeSheets:Design, offering graphic and web design services, branding, and advertising/marketing consulting. What started with a dozen or so clients has now grown to over 100, and has extended its services into event planning, film producing, and eCommerce. Lauronda really enjoys running this festival with her close friends, Mark and Trish Lyons (of Brews Cruise, Inc.) She also contributes time, energy, and her design services to over 8 local non-profits, and when there is any free time, she spends it with her extensive WNC family, friends, and Ollie (her four-legged child.)

Brews Cruise, Inc.
Mark and Trish Lyons officially launched the Asheville Brews Cruise in 2006. We are passionate about fine crafted beers, and were so impressed with the exceptional breweries in Asheville, NC we decided to share our enthusiasm by creating a mobile tour experience for our guests. After much success, we decided to expand this concept, and now have folks "Cruisin' for a Brewsin'!" in over 12 locations nationwide. We relocated to Bend, OR, another great beer city. We hope you that you take a tour, and spread the word - because we believe you’ll agree, no matter what city you are in, our country’s brewing scene is worth bragging about!

The day we opened the Corner Kitchen the house was one hundred and eight years old. George Washington Vanderbilt came to Asheville in the late 1880's and bought the 72 acres that ultimately became Biltmore Village. Since early times this house has been associated with food. President and First Lady Obama enjoy a meal at Corner Kitchen in April 2010. The owners, Kevin Westmoreland and Joe Scully, and the entire service staff at the Corner Kitchen is committed to make each guests experience the very best in ambiance, service, food and value.
