LP client Blue Plate Catering was featured on ABC7 News. The station has started a series showcasing Chicago area entrepreneurs and picked Blue Plate for its first installment, noting how the company has "stood the test of time." Blue Plate will celebrate 33 years in business this August.

Jim Horan, Blue Plate's founder and CEO, told ABC7 he is still amazed at how this all started, with just $500. Today, Blue Plate is a multi-million-dollar business, busting at the seams at its headquarters on Van Buren. It's not unusual for it to cater more than ten events a day, and the company's growth continues. The entire Blue Plate team is expanding and will be moving to a brand new headquarters this summer in Chicago's Fulton Market neighborhood, which will be more than six times the size of the current building.
