DenHartog promoted to catering and events manager at Jake’s Western Grill, Lynden, Washington

Molly DenHartog is a familiar face around Jake’s Western Grill in Lynden, Washington; she has been involved with the Southern-style BBQ restaurant since Brian and Tanya Poag opened its doors in January of 2008.

DenHartog was recently promoted to catering and events manager so she could work directly with the restaurants customers in Whatcom County and follow their events through from start to finish.  Her duties include food selection, décor planning, serving options, and more.
Brian Poag shares, “Molly has demonstrated her responsibility, professionalism and attention to detail time and time again. She is a huge asset to our catering department and is helping us take Jake’s catering to a new level; this promotion is a testament to the total faith we all have in her abilities.”
As the official caterer for headlining acts at the Northwest Washington Fair, Jake’s Western Grill has fed celebrities like The Oak Ridge Boys, Heart, Clint Black, Charlie Daniels, Randy Travis, Chicago, Foreigner, and more. The BBQ restaurant also provides catering services for Lynden’s PRCA Rodeo.
“Jake’s caters corporate and private events of all sizes.  On any given day I may be organizing a formal prime rib dinner for 300 wedding guests, scheduling a BBQ lunch for a local business, or spending an entire day serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to celebrities and their crews at the Northwest Washington Fair. Managing catering and events for the restaurant is an exciting job; it’s a lot of hard work but I really love the variety,” shares DenHartog.
