“We look after everything from linens and glasses to kitchen equipment with our large and complete inventory that is continually updated” says co-owner Daniel Sebal. “Being able to control all aspects of an event allows us to ensure the highest quality of service to our clients”.
While A&B is defined by its excellence and dedication to clean and sparkling inventory, the company is also steeped in family tradition. Daniel and brother Malcolm took over the business in 2006 from their parents Tom & Judy who successfully managed the company for 17 years.
Aside from being the City’s most esteemed all-service party planners, A&B is also devoted to an “easy on the earth” concept and is actively involved in numerous charities and philanthropic activities.
