Soaring Revenue Reported during 2018 Air Show Weekend
While tens of thousands of beach-goers along the Atlantic coast in Ocean City had their eyes to the sky during an annual air show, co-founders and managing partners of Matt Ortt Companies Matthew Ortt and Ralph DeAngelus had their eyes on an uptick in revenue at both Ocean Pines Beach Club and Ocean Pines Yacht Club.
The two popular food and beverage operations are the newest restaurant concepts to be revitalized by Matt Ortt Companies (MOCO), a restaurant development and management company.
Operations at the facilities have made an about-face and are believed to be marching towards a profitable future.
“All of our front-line employees have been through rigorous training and I think it shows in the service provided,” said DeAngelus.
Compared to the same weekend last year, revenue nearly doubled at the Yacht Club and the Beach Club also saw an increase in its revenue over the weekend during the 2018 Ocean City Air Show, according to data that was provided by the management company and the Ocean Pines director of finance.
DeAngelus, who attended a ribbon cutting that was held by the Ocean Pines Chamber of Commerce on June 20 at the Yacht Club, believe the change in operations is promising news for those who are looking to enjoy the waterfront clubs.
“Not only have our MOCO management team, but all of our front-line employees felt the good wishes from everyone who's visited us from OP,” said DeAngelus. “All that does is make all of us want to succeed even more. It's easy to come to work every day with a big smile on your face when you love what you do and are so appreciated.”
Ortt and DeAngelus took on the day-to-day operations at the Beach Club and Yacht Club after the Ocean Pines Board of Directors granted the team a two-year management contract.
The Beach Club property, which is open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily, features a dining area, bar and spacious decking, public swimming pool, lounge chairs, and an upper level for private parties, weddings and banquets for Ocean Pines residents and non-residents.
The Yacht Club property, which is open from 11 a.m. – close on Monday- Saturday and 10 a.m. – close on Sunday, overlooks the Isle of Wight Bay and features a restaurant, marina, two indoor bars, a tiki bar, a public swimming pool, an award-winning ballroom and deck for private parties, weddings and banquets.
