About Green Apple Events & Catering
Green Apple Events & Catering has been in operation since January 1,
2010. Our Green Apple name is to reflect that we are a sustainable green
company and the apple is to symbolize that we are a proud Washington State
business. The co-owners, Kris Brown and Cheryl Seaton are sisters who
were born and raised in Kirkland, Washington.
Kris Brown, Co-Owner
Kris is the driving force that sets Green Apple Events & Catering
apart from the rest. Not only is Kris an expert at event planning and
execution but equally as important - she has that special quality that
draws clients to her building a connection that fosters into a solid relationship.
The client relationships are just as important as the delicious food as
Kris is always quick to point out. It is the mantra that both she and
our team live by! In addition to event planning, Kris’s expertise
is extensive including sales, employee management, logistics and operations.
Cheryl Seaton, Co-Owner
Cheryl is the backbone of Green Apple Events & Catering. She is the
controller, managed the recent build-out & move as well as government
compliance, lease negotiations, equipment acquisition, kitchen standards
and menu development. In addition, she embraces each opportunity for creativity
at Green Apple Events & Catering to ensure that we stand out offering
new and innovative options in food, décor and service. Her husband
Ken and she have a successful European Auto Repair business that just
celebrated 20 years of business. Cheryl loves family time, traveling and boating.
Shayne Wells, Executive Chef
A native of Texas, Shayne shares his knowledge of delicious flavor profiles
combining his Southern roots with the fresh ingredients of the Pacific
Northwest. Shayne has been with the company for almost two years this
June, stepping up as our Executive Chef this past Fall. Before landing
in Seattle, he studied Culinary Arts and Applied Sciences in Austin, Texas
while gaining five years experience, technique and inspiring work ethic
from soulful chefs at Lee's Hurricane Party Cajun Cuisine, East 12th
Street Cafe and Catering at the Formula One Race Track. When not at Green
Apple Events & Catering, one of Shayne's greatest joys comes from
surrounding himself with friends and family in the kitchen creating memories
and exceptional food for all to enjoy.
Kassie Seaton, Corporate Sales & Marketing Manager
Kassie has been on our Sales Team since the Spring of 2013. She is a University
of Washington graduate and a seasoned Event Coordinator. Kassie is a sales
professional whose strengths and passion are in corporate event planning
