Congratulations to Maximillian’s Café – November Insignia Award Winner

The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce presented Maximillian’s Café with the Insignia Award for the month of November 2015. This award recognizes the achievement of quality customer service and commitment to the community.

If you’ve had a chance to check out Maximillian’s, chances are you’ve been back. You may also have a good indication from their front door that they’ve been Chamber members for quite some time now. Maximillian’s originally opened in 1997 and has been a Chamber member since 2002. In 2004, Reggie Tjoe and his wife became the café owners, providing excellent customer service to hungry Sarasotans ever since.


Whether you’re dining in, taking out or ordering delivery, you can always expect the best service from Reggie and his team of four employees. Reggie said it best himself, “I’m in the hospitality business, where customer service is the number one rule.”

The café, featuring daily specials and a full catering menu, is a well-known lunch spot between the locals. Many frequent visitors are on a first name basis with the staff. And The Chamber is no stranger to catering from Maximillian’s. With a timely delivery and many different catering options, they are very accommodating to all members of The Chamber, including Ringling College of Art & Design, Morgan Stanley and WWSB – ABC 7 News, among many others.

We are consistently hearing how great they are to their customers. Here are just a few testimonials from the locals:

“Great food and great service. They have been delivering food to employees at the Veterinary Center of Sarasota for years and we have never had a bad meal. Thank you for the awesome lunches you guys make for us so often.” – Gary Reinhardt

“Reggie and Mo are awesome. They and the staff always remember your name. And their salads and sandwiches are hard to beat.” – Lee DeLieto Jr.

“…Another awesome thing worth noting is the customer service. Everyone is always so happy, polite, and super friendly there. If you go a couple times they will even remember your name and favorite menu items. Customer service that awesome is super rare these days. I recommend Maximillian’s to everyone I know and I will definitely be a lifetime customer!” – Alex P.

We congratulate Reggie Tjoe and the entire team at Maximillian’s as our November Insignia Award Winner for their exemplary customer service and commitment to the Sarasota community.


The Insignia Award is sponsored by Insignia Bank which holds the distinction of being the highest initially capitalized bank in the history of the Sarasota/Bradenton market and is a locally owned community bank.  It remains one of the higher ranked banks by Bauer rating services with a three star rating and continues to retain its capital levels well over the highest capital status by regulatory measures as “Well Capitalized.” The bank continues to lend as evidenced with over 20% loan growth last year alone and plans on doing so again this year and is one of the faster growing banks from a deposit perspective in the market. Insignia Bank takes its role as a Community Bank very seriously, and as a result, it is proud to be the sponsor of the Insignia Award.

The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce presents the Insignia Award to a company or organization each month in recognition of its quality service and commitment to the community under The Chamber’s Code of Ethics.
