POINT PLEASANT BEACH – Molly Kastner, owner and operator of Molly Boards in Point Pleasant Beach, got her first taste of working a family business as a youngster when she helped run a catering business started by her grandparents called Byrnes Family Catering.

“My grandfather started that catering company,” Kastner said. “Everyone in our family worked that business, from my aunts and uncles to all my cousins and siblings. Growing up as kids, that’s where we went and we started as dishwashers as young as 12 or 13, just going to help out.

“The business was based out of East Brunswick and Spotswood,” Kastner said. “It was all family and we covered weddings and events like that, which we absolutely loved doing. Most of the places were local, but we still put 100% effort into every event we covered because we were so dedicated to doing a fantastic job. It was a win-win for me and my younger siblings because we got to make some easy money and hang out with Grandma and Grandpa.
