Phil Cooper, our founder, started his journey in the world of service and hospitality at the tender age of 14 in Frankenmuth, MI, also known as “Little Bavaria”. His love for theatre and his vibrant personality led him to the hospitality industry. He honed his skills at Northern Michigan University, an upscale country inn in Cape Cod, MA, and later at the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago. There, he discovered his passion for special events and event design, even getting his work featured in leading magazines.
Recognizing a gap in the event industry for non-drinkers like himself, Phil saw the legalization of recreational cannabis in Illinois as an opportunity to reimagine event experiences. Today, he is dedicated to incorporating cannabis into events responsibly and stylishly, aiming to destigmatize the plant while throwing unforgettable, fabulous events!
