At this point Ben was still working his full time job but decided to give his culinary love a chance by offering his services as a private chef! At that time it was hard to believe people might actually pay to have him cook for them but they did! And he and his clients both really enjoyed the experience!

This month we are going to take you back to the beginning and share the story behind our early days & how we got to where we are today!

First up, Ben Lin. The founder of B.Lin Catering. He graduated from UVA with a degree in Finance. Wahoowa anyone?! Yet he has always had a passion for cooking.

While Ben was still working in finance he started to dabble in hosting dinner parties and being a private chef, but he decided that wasn’t enough so he took the leap and quit his stable 9-5 job to figure out his career in the food industry!

Ben started his dream career as a dishwasher at a ramen restaurant called Taan where he met his mentor, Dirty Johnny, who helped him work his way up to being part of the kitchen line and taught him the ways to a successful kitchen.

Meet Arin, the real OG! She has been with B.Lin since nearly day one and has helped build the company into who we are today!

- Employee Name: Arin Noble
- Title: Technically still COO but since the pandemic hit things have changed so much that I'm not sure if that is still accurate!
- Where is your hometown? Charlottesville, VA
- How long have you been with B.Lin? Almost 9 years (!) - I joined shortly after Ben started the company
- What do you like to do outside of work? I love to travel and explore new restaurants (I love food, hence working in the industry for so long!). I also collect vintage furniture (and occasionally sell it over at ) -- I love interior design and am always doing new decorating projects around the house. I also make ceramics at a local pottery studio (). Most recently, however, I've been spending a lot of my time taking care of my 120 lb puppy Lenny :) (he's a Saint Bernard / Bernese Mountain Dog mix).
- Who would you invite to dinner both (dead or alive)? This is probably a boring answer, but the pandemic has made me realize how much I miss having dinner with groups of friends, so I'd probably pick that over anyone famous!
What is your favorite dish at
- B.Lin? Butternut squash wontons and chicken banh mi sliders
- What do you like most about working at B.Lin? What I've enjoyed most about working for B.Lin is that I've been able to wear a lot of hats over the years and learn lots of new skills related to all different parts of the business -- it's a really unique experience you don't get working at larger companies!
