Hudson Valley Business Steals the Scene on Bravo's "Million Dollar Listing"
The Goshen-based catering and event planning company, “You’re the Boss!” debuted on Wednesday’s episode of “Million Dollar Listing NY”, June 3, 2015 at 10PM EST on the Bravo Network. (I can't get enough of that show!)
The catering event - an Open House hosted by Nest Seekers International, home of the famous Million Dollar Broker, Ryan Serhant - took place at a swanky Triplex Penthouse in Soho, which at the time of the episode shooting in October 2014 was listed for $6.5M. This amazing penthouse boasts 2,702 sq. feet, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and two rooftop terraces overlooking views of the city.

In October 2014, Ryan Serhant’s current assistant, 2008 Goshen High graduate Ryan Dzierzek, had been informed that he was to put together his first open house. With this task, he looked to his Orange County home and his first job when he was a bus boy and server of Goshen’s former restaurant, Club Ontaroga. He called Erin Pascual, his first boss and the owner of the newly formed company, You’re the Boss! and gave her a vision of what he was dreaming up. She came through with the design, the menu, and the glassware which was eventually used by another vendor – Hella Bitters from Brooklyn who came with appropriately themed concoctions for the big event.
You’re the Boss! Wedding & Events not only caters with innovative cuisine, but plans events from the ground up, as well as styles them. Currently, they have a venue on Rt 207 in Goshen, and also cater out of the Caldwell House Bed & Breakfast in Salisbury Mills. They not only cater weddings, but are the event planning company behind one of the biggest annual fundraising events – Light it Up Blue! Which raised over $12,000 this year for Center for Spectrum Services in Ellenville.
One of their biggest facets of their business is their designer cupcakes, which has gained weekly orders since opening. You can find flavors such as their award winning Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes as well as their “Not Your Grandma’s Apple Pie” Cupcakes which has a graham cracker crust, a cider-cinnabon cake, Fireball Whiskey sautéed apple filling, topped with caramel buttercream. Erin formed You’re the Boss! with former coworkers from Catlin Gardens such as her event planner, Anne Hancock who accompanied her on the catering job for Million Dollar Listing NY. Both Erin Pascua and Anne Hancock are 2001 Graduates of John S. Burke Catholic High School.
The Emmy-Nominated series Million Dollar Listing New York is currently on their fourth season, and their season premier was the highest watched premier of the entire series, including the Los Angeles installment of the show. Nest Seekers International currently has fifteen offices and offices around the world, and in less than 10 years, they have formed into a powerful brokerage sales and marketing firm leading the industry in New York City, the Hamptons, Miami and Beverly Hills.
