Who is Host the Toast?

Host the Toast was born out of our collective passion for sharing good drinks, good food, and good company. Whether it’s a last minute get-together, a large family reunion, a fun-themed shindig, or simply happy hour, Host the Toast is your all-in-one barware and entertaining resource. We invite you to browse our site and say hello to our 3 “merrymaking masterminds,” Brian, Frankie, and Morgan.

Brian is the brains and brawn behind the brand, but he’s not your typical “all work, no play” entrepreneur. Brian pioneered the production of Host the Toast, following in his family’s footsteps to create a friendly, personalized company.

37 years ago, Brian’s grandparents opened a small kitchen supply store in Voorhees, New Jersey. Since then, the company has been passed on to Brian’s  father and two uncles (with his grandmother still playing a vital role), and has grown into a 13 store kitchen retailer with a national online reach. Even though it has greatly expanded, the company has kept its neighborhood kitchenware store character, which is exactly what Brian aspires to do with Host the Toast. Brian’s family’s business has spawned the creation of Host the Toast, which focuses on enjoying beer, wine, cocktails, and great food with friends.

As the head honcho and webmaster, Brian spends countless hours coding, consulting, making calls, and tweaking the site to make sure that your experience with Host the Toast is as enjoyable as possible. Despite all of the hard work he does, Brian can always be found with a big grin and a positive, fun-loving attitude. To read more about Brian, visit his profile.

Frankie is Host the Toast’s visionary. She’s a designer, a marketer, and the all-around go-to girl of this operation. Frankie is always (and we mean always) coming up with fresh ideas for Host the Toast which continue to amaze us.  Frankie is constantly working on a dozen projects at once and manages to stay as energized and excited as ever through each. But don’t worry, she still finds time to relax with her signature Negroni, (recipe coming soon!) some good friends and good food. To read more about Frankie, visit her profile.

Morgan is the youthful talent. She’s the main blogger, which consequentially makes her Host the Toast’s main writer, bartender, cook, event attendee, party host, and photographer. Morgan is 24 years young, so she is always on top of the latest party trends and still has plenty of time to spend many a late night with good company and great drinks (only so she can tell you about them, of course!) Don’t let her age fool you though; Morgan is wise beyond her years on the subject of entertaining, which is evident in her informative and mouth-watering posts.

While each has his or her own niche, these three work closely together on their contributions in order to provide a broad spectrum of exciting, unique content for you.
