Matt Malgari is an entrepreneur in the hospitality industry who is passionate about about helping tourists in California enjoy their stay as much as possible. He also utilizes California Poppy, his bed and breakfast, as an event planning facility for people interested in holding a business or corporate event, a conference, retreat, private party or special occasion as well as wedding ceremonies, receptions or rehearsal dinners.
Matt Malgari specializes in the hospitality industry because he enjoys maximizing guests’ comfort and helping them create valuable memories, whether they stay for business or pleasure. California Poppy is an ideal fit for any guest or occasion – from romantic getaways to luxurious family or business retreats, he is enthusiastic about making a diverse range of guests comfortable, accommodating to their needs as much as possible. California Poppy is known for its modern décor, comfortable amenities and outstanding concierge services. Malgari ensures that each guest is taken care of, from lodging to catered events, community hosted activities and exceptional dining and culinary experiences.
California Poppy also serves as an excellent brunch option for locals and tourists in the area, providing an innovative and authentic menu that constantly changes with local and fresh ingredients. The brunch menu is ideal for people with any preferences, as it features a vegan and vegetarian menu as well. The original dishes are beloved by many, and the dining room is cozy and quaint, allowing guests to enjoy their meals with friends and family. The food at the bed and breakfast has won many local awards.
Matt Malgari started his entrepreneurial ventures into the hospitality industry when he was young, beginning his professional career as an apprentice for his father. His father managed a number of hotels in Nevada, and he grew up with a keen interest in maximizing people’s vacations through exceptional food, phenomenal customer service and luxurious amenities with an emphasis on cleanliness. Malgari quickly realized that he had a passion and talent for hospitality, and sought to make lodging a more intimate experience. Rather than running large hotels like his father, Malgari pursued his interest in the form of a small bed and breakfast, which quickly became the heart of his entrepreneurial inspirations.
Matt decided to name the bed and breakfast after California’s state flower, the California Poppy, which is a longtime favorite among locals. The flower is symbolic of his dreamlike B&B, as it is stunning in shades of orange, yellow, cream, apricot and pink through the summer. The California Poppy requires plenty of sunlight, and similarly, Malgari aims to keep his bed and breakfast a warm, sunny place as well.
When he started his B&B, Matt Malgari was interested in creating a dynamic, multi-purpose space that could be used and enjoyed by locals and visitors. While the tourist industry appealed to him and he enjoys helping visitors experience the fullness of his state, he also wanted to establish a strong local presence. Because of this interest, he launched an event planning business out of the California Poppy, and the facilities quickly became a hotspot for destination and local weddings.
The event room is used for a variety of celebrations, such as wedding rehearsals, ceremonies or receptions as well as Bar Mitzvahs, baby showers, birthdays and family reunions. It’s also heavily used for corporate meetings and retreats, seminars and conferences. Because the space is modern and intimate, it draws in a significant amount of interest among California residents. The B&B is located in a beautiful area in California, and therefore also attracts engaged couples interested in destination weddings.
Small business advocate
As an entrepreneur, Matt Malgari cultivated an interest in small businesses and a community of business owners in the area. He fostered a support system for mentoring relationships among new entrepreneurs and seasoned small business owners. He frequently hosts meetings to help the small business community flourish in his area, and many entrepreneurs in his area appreciate his efforts to create a thriving and supportive community.
Fun for the whole family
Matt wanted to make California Poppy a family-friendly space, so he puts entertainment and comfort at a high priority. The bed and breakfast has a small but entertaining arcade room that kids can enjoy, with a plethora of games children of all ages can appreciate. Because the games are family-friendly regardless of a child’s age, Matt Malgari aims to foster memorable experiences and family bonding time through board games and other activities in the arcade room.
Outside of the California Poppy are a fun and relaxing children’s pool and whirlpool, designed for young guests. Kids can enjoy the waterslide and the whirlpool under strict supervision, as there is always a lifeguard on duty. Some summer events take place outside of the bed and breakfast so that guests can enjoy the swimming pool with poolside beverages and snacks.
Matt is passionate about constantly improving his business to meet the needs of his guests, helping them enjoy and experience all that they can in California – starting with their lodging and dining. He is proud to provide insight and tips for tourists interested in adventure-filled itineraries, and the concierge staff is also an excellent resource for those interested in local restaurants, shopping or activities. Matt Malgari is enthusiastic to accept feedback and suggestions from loyal guests, ensuring that he will do everything in his power to make sure their stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
In the future, Matt Malgari is interested in expanding his event planning business and building onto his bed and breakfast without jeopardizing the quaint lodging facilities or overall environment. He wants to continue creating a space for guests that is comfortable, clean and spacious, allowing them to take advantage of a wide variety of amenities and services. In the near future, he strives to create more tourist-driven events in which guests can meet other visitors and explore the area and all it has to offer in unique ways.
Matt Malgari also hopes to increase his presence as a community entrepreneurial leader, helping to connect aspiring small business owners with experienced entrepreneurs. Rather than simply hosting events for strengthening small business mentoring relationships, he hopes to build a stronger online presence to reach a wider audience, creating webinars and an online community for other businesses in other areas to model.
Malgari strives to continue serving phenomenal food in a rich dining experience, ensuring that the chefs and staff keep innovation and originality at the forefront. A part of his vision for growth includes expanding his kitchen to include a dinner menu, opening the doors for a new and improved identity. However he plans to grow his bed and breakfast, he is adamant about keeping it original and cozy so that guests and event planning clients can enjoy the intimate setting. California Poppy remains a beloved favorite among locals and tourists, and Matt Malgar pans to sustain this image so that guests will return often, creating a safe haven and respite for multiple guests and families.
