With over 18 years in the hospitality industry (a majority spent with Karen, Owner of KRO’s on the Common,) Tracee has always had a passion for weddings and special events. She graduated from Monty Tech in the Culinary Arts program and Newbury College where she studied Hotel and Restaurant Management with a concentration in Hotel Administration and a minor in English Literature. From working at award winning venues like The Barn at Gibbet Hill and Fruitland’s Museum, to being an invited chef to The Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in 2008 & 2009, Tracee is well rounded in most all positions in the food and beverage industry. This experience is invaluable to the execution and planning of events at KRO’s on the Common.
In her free time she enjoys camping with her family, walking her two German Shepherd dogs, Caliber and Cai, reading a good book and traveling. A local to the area, Tracee develops long lasting relationships with her clients and looks forward to meeting new people.
"We contacted Kro’s about hosting our wedding after enjoying many delicious meals there. We were thrilled they had availability and could accommodate our 40 guests. We met with Tracee the event coordinator, who worked with us to develop a delicious menu for our cocktail hour, dinner and desserts. Tracee was so accommodating and helpful when we had questions or wanted to make changes to the menu. She provided us with a detailed outline of the menu and timeline for our wedding. We were able to develop a plan for where to hold the ceremony depending on the weather. While we had hope to hold the ceremony in the beautiful outdoor gardens, the weather didn’t cooperate so we held the ceremony inside. Tracee worked quickly to help us make the space perfect for our ceremony.
The food was outstanding. We’ve attended many weddings and have never had such delicious food. It even exceeded our expectations. Our guests also raved about the many amazing cocktail options. We had the most delicious wedding cake we’ve ever eaten. This wasn’t just a cake made to look beautiful. The flavors were outstanding. All of our other dessert choices were absolutely perfect. Our guests all left full and happy. The staff were so polite and helpful. The evening was completely enjoyable and there wasn’t a moment of stress or worry with anything at Kro’s.
There is nothing we would have changed or wished was different. Our wedding night was perfect thanks to everyone at Kro’s. "

"I just wanted to thank you again and again for the amazing food that you brought for our wedding. We were so impressed not only with the food but also with the service and the fact that it wasn’t just a “drop and go” kind of thing. Everything was set up so nicely and taken care of SO well. And everyone kept commenting on how it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Seriously, it was outstanding, and I’m still dreaming of the chicken and the rolls. So yummy!"
"You helped make our day super special and we couldn’t thank you enough. Thank you so much for everything!!"
The food was amazing! The baby shower was a great success and the food enhanced the day for sure. One might think ‘a sandwich is a sandwich’ but we couldn’t stop talking about how delicious they were! Of course the soup and salad were delicious as well.
Thank you so much for making my event so easy!!
We will be back to visit at the restaurant for sure, and will certainly keep your catering in mind for the future.
Dearest Tracee, Kro's on the Common staff and Karen:
I am eternally grateful for all of you. Your kindness and generosity of spirit truly made this holiday gathering fabulous. The particular menu of options, Tracee, that you selected exceeded my expectations and were "just the right fit"! Everyone loved everything and the selection. I only wish more of my family who were unable to attend were able to enjoy! :) Luckily, I have some of the tremendous desserts left that I will be sharing at our traditional pierogi making night tonight.
And, of course, I do this so we can create memories, community and celebrate each other during this truly magical time of year. Your catering and specialized treats/sandwiches helped to make this one to remember. It also took some of the stress off of me-for the very first time in years, I did not prepare or cook/bake anything. This allowed me to spend time with my guests and less time worrying and scurrying around at the last minute.
Thank YOU for making this a seamless and memorable event.
We wish you a beautiful Christmas! Also, we are sending you love, happiness, success (however you measure it :)), serenity and joy in the new year to each of you and your families.
Much love and gratitude,
