Like most roads on the journey of life, the Manor Hill story is full of twists and turns. This story begins in earnest in 1989, when Randy & Mary Marriner founded Marriner Marketing Communications. With Randy as Chairman & CEO and Mary as CFO of the firm, it ranked 6th in the top regional advertising agency listings and provided world class creative services to a stellar client list that included ARAMARK, Citibank, Coca-Cola, Glaxo Pharmaceuticals, Kellogg’s, Marriott International and many more. Looking for the next entrepreneurial challenge and longing to pursue new business opportunities with their family at the forefront, the Marriners sold the agency to their business partner in 2005.
Mary, Randy, and two daughters (Rachael and Tori) founded Victoria Restaurant Group and opened Victoria Gastro Pub in 2007. In 2011 they purchased and moved to Manor Hill Farm, a 54-acre traditional working farm (home to cattle, chickens, bees, corn, herbs, fruits, and vegetables) in Ellicott City.
In 2012, as a natural addition to the restaurant and farm operations, applications were filed with federal & state governments for the creation of Manor Hill Brewing. Actual production brewing began in June of 2015.
In September 2015, Manor Hill Productions was added to the Manor Hill portfolio of businesses. Originally branded as MHF Productions, the family started the venture with Mary’s nephew Kenny Eggerl, a 25-year event production professional, primarily on the décor side of the event business. However, in early 2016 Patrick Hand. Jr. joined the management team to create the technical services group, offering audio-visual, lighting, staging, etc. to support a new, live events focus. In just their first few years, their client list quickly expanded, their team of professionals grew, and their brand evolved into what you know today as Manor Hill Productions.
In June 2019, that road took another major turn when Manor Hill Productions expanded their national footprint with the opening of a Dallas, TX outpost, which is now home to six of their senior leadership team members
Today, Manor Hill Farm, a woman-owned business, is home to the largest farm brewery in the state of Maryland, the restaurant group’s corporate operations, and Manor Hill Production’s warehouse and headquarters.
