How does Expertise curate their results?

Here is an excerpt from their website: 

Step 1: Surveying the field

Our first step is to find every business that provides service in the city, and to filter out any that fail to meet our definition of an expert. We flag and remove any business with a history of dissatisfied customers, or with limited online information that makes them difficult to contact.

Step 2: Ranking Businesses 

Next, we use our in-house software to grade each business on 25 variables across five judgment criteria:

caterer reputation award
 1: Reputation:  A history of delighted customers and outstanding service.
caterer reviews for credibility  2. Credibility:  Building customer confidence with licensing, accreditations, and awards.
caterer reputation and experience  3. Experience:  Masters of their craft, based on years of practical experience and education.
caterer availability  4. Availability: Consistently approachable and responsive, so customers never feel ignored.
caterer reputation for professionalism  5. Professionalism: Providing service with honesty, reliability, and respect.

Step 3: Hand-picking the best

Once the businesses are ranked, our team manually reviews the highest scoring results to ensure that we can proudly stand behind each of our selections. We then gather all of the relevant contact information, and write detailed descriptions to give our readers a clear overview of each business.

Brian and Mickey are incredibly proud of the team here at B&M Catering. They are convinced that our chefs, servers, drivers, maintenance, event planners and everyone who steps up to help us are the reason that we are able to keep our customers happy and filled with delicious food.

  • By: Brian and Mick

Fall is in the air!  

Here in New England, we welcome the cooler air, the color of the leaves, and the smells of autumn. It's the perfect time of year to place a pot on the stove and enjoy a New England Clambake.

Our DIY clambakes are super easy to prepare and we just gave one away to Chuck A. from Cumberland, RI!

Chuck is this month's lucky winner of our Clambake-to-Travel monthly drawing.


You probably know by now, each month we hold a "Win-A-Clambake" drawing.  This month, Chuck's name was chosen from the entries we received..

When Chuck comes to pick up his Clambake-to-Travel at our kitchen in Pawtucket, he can expect to bring home a traditional New England Clambake in its own pot. 

Just wait until he finds out how easy it is to prepare our clambakes to travel!

do it yourself clambake

You would be surprised to find out how easy it is to have a Do-It-Yourself Clambake in your home, backyard, tailgate event, or at your campsite:

The first thing you do is add water to the reusable pot. Then, you will place it on your stove top. The pot holds lobster, steamers, mussels, chourico, corn on the cob, red bliss potatoes & onions. 

 That's it!

In less than one hour, you and your guests can enjoy their own Traditional Old-Fashioned Clambake.

You could become next month's winner.  
Simply visit the "Win a Clambake" page to register.
