Lobster on the beach Elle Jarvis, the creator of the culinary lifestyle brand H COLE, believes in intentional entertaining. With a professional background in hospitality and experiential marketing, and a passion for cooking that was sparked while managing chef Barbara Lynch’s demo kitchen, Stir, Jarvis has become an expert at designing food and drink events that are not only memorable, but also meaningful. 

Having traveled all over the world for her previous jobs, Jarvis was excited to return to her hometown of Marshfield to start her very own boutique catering business. She launched H COLE in the summer of 2021 with the help of her longtime friend, Erik Morrill. Offering more than just delicious meals, the company hosts intimate culinary experiences that celebrate local heritage and foodways. 

“We truly believe that the South Shore of Massachusetts is a magical place and should be enjoyed and celebrated by all,” says Jarvis, whose business name and logo was inspired by a buoy branding tool she came across that had once been owned by her great uncle, Howard “Mecca” Cole, who was a fireman, lobsterman and cranberry farmer. 

Jarvis works with many local food purveyors to secure the freshest ingredients, from lobstermen and fishermongers to farmers and vintners. H COLE’s unique offerings include a special Fish Tales dinner series at Mullaney’s Harborside Fish Market and an all-inclusive lobster charter aboard Kestrel Fishing Charters that comes with the makings for a cold fried chicken picnic. Jarvis also collaborated with Rachael Meyers at The Collective Co. to create Coastal Commons, which offers bougie beach picnic packages that take the traditional New England lobster bake to new levels.
