It all started with brunch, short rib hash, and shrimp and grits, to be exact.  Brian and Alison met in 2012 and quickly connected over their shared love of the food scene.  Brian, a chef and former restaurant owner, and Alison, a marketing specialist in the grocery game, fell in love over many delicious meals, laughs, and lots of good wine! 

In December of 2020, the two began their new culinary journey through opening Mason's Restaurant & Grocery. After seeing the great amount of success and local community support, they decided to expand their reach in the area with a new catering company. Genuine Hospitality Catering & Events has allowed the couple to provide for the growing catering demand in the downtown area of Aberdeen, North Carolina. 

From the beloved cuisine of Mason's to refined wedding buffets to adventurous party stations, the Genuine Hospitality Catering & Events team will be there to help. 

"When we opened Mason's Restaurant & Grocery 18 months ago, we knew catering was a service we would want to offer as well. 

The response has been overwhelming and we have had the pleasure of catering private dinners, parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners, fundraising galas, and countless boxed lunches and party platters. 

We are so excited to officially launch our catering company, Genuine Hospitality Catering & Events, named after our parent company. From Mason's fare you love to a coursed fine-dining experience, we have got your next event covered!"

- Brian & Alison Hainley
