A native of Spokane, Bob Adolfson and his wife, Kimberly Coy, purchased the Glover Mansion and started Red Rock Catering Company in 2004. After more than thirty years of managing events from remote locations like Denali National Park in Alaska, to Camden Yards in Baltimore, to mega conventions in New Orleans, Las Vegas, and Phoenix, Bob and his family returned to the Inland Empire. “It was time to come home.” Said Bob. His career in the hospitality industry, starting here in Spokane as a Bellman at the Sheraton and culminating as a Regional Vice President for ARAMARK corporation, has certainly prepared Bob to lead Red Rock Catering’s team of event planning specialists. “It’s more challenging to run a small business than to operate a large multi-national one” according to Bob. “But at the end of the day—either way—it’s about making every customer happy—one at a time.”
Bob and Kim live in Spokane and are recent ‘empty-nesters’. Kim has a PhD in education and writes and lectures nationally. Bob jogs and caters. “Kim is the smart one” acknowledges Bob. His friends agree.
