A’Faires Events & Banquets Center

The entrepreneurship bug has truly bitten several of the six owners of A’Faires Events & Banquets in High Point. John and Robin Archie McIntyre have owned and operated Oak Hollow Enrichment Center for the past ten years and managed JMACK Properties 4 Rent, a real estate property management company also located in High Point. Curtis “Amp” and Lenore Bittle have owned and operated A&L Upholstery Furniture in High Point for 25 years. Then finally, Willie and Brenda McIntyre who have invested in A’Faires because of their desire to help people and to see them enjoy themselves.

A’Faires Banquets & Events, LLC is a banquet and special events venue located off Business I-85 and Highway 311 in High Point. It offers over 6,000 square feet of space with two separate banquet rooms. The Grande Affair Room accommodates 200 guests for a sit down function with round tables or a floating cocktail party of 300 to 400 guests. The Intimate Affair Room accommodates 50 guests for a sit down function with round tables or a floating cocktail event of 60 to 70 guests. A’Faires is noted for its elegant decor, style and class. The company is fully capable of hosting weddings, receptions, holiday and birthday parties, proms, corporate functions, meetings, anniversary celebrations, social events, religious functions, networking functions, family and class reunions and bridal showers.

A’Faires Banquets & Events provides full service catering and a full service wait staff. In addition to having all ABC licenses and permits, setup and cleanup comes at no additional charge. All tables, chairs, linens and china are included in the rental plus chair covers and centerpieces are available as well. There is assistance with vendor referrals such as DJs, photographers, and an outdoor facility for weddings and activities. An on-site professional event planner, Lenore Bittle, is always ready to service the needs of everyone, and there is on-site security through the High Point Police Department.

A’Faires offers its clients a one stop shop experience. Having an on-site wedding and event planner, the client can come in and talk about their vision and discuss options including everything from colors to vendors. On most occasions, the client only has to show up once and everything is done for them. This is A’Faires claim to fame. “Customer satisfaction is the glue that makes or breaks a business,” say the owners. “We understand that word of mouth is the most important and valuable tool in our arsenal and how it affects the clients decision to return and refer new ones to us.”

One of the biggest challenges faced by A’Faires was securing financing for a start-up venture. However, they didn’t allow this to deter them from the mission of opening and operating a banquet and special events venue. As partners, they came up with a game plan. Without losing focus they had to resort to self-financing, which was a blessing in disguise. Due to not having any outstanding loans, they’ve worked really smart with their existing resources. The finished product is proof of their hard work and they now enjoy the fruits of their labor.

It is their commitment to constantly improve the quality of service provided to all of their clients, acknowledging that if they do their part, longevity will follow. “Our clients are guaranteed honesty, integrity, reliability and the assurance of exceeding their expectations,” state the owners. “As a rule of thumb all quotes are provided in writing; no hidden charges, no hidden fees.”
