About Us

Crest View Plaza originally opened its doors to the public December of 1978 by the Gangi Family of Woburn. Since their opening the reception hall has changed ownership several times. Each owner offering just as perfect service as the last. March of 2014 “The Crestview” announced they would be closing. Sharon Gangi Valerio, her husband John Valerio, their children, and partner Mark Deane, Jr. decided that they would keep Crest View from closing and take over.

Crest View Plaza is a family run business and we take pride in what we offer! When at Crest View Plaza you and your guests are treated with top-notch professional and friendly service.  We take pride in what we offer to you, and when you leave you’re not leaving as a guest, but a member of our Crest View Family.
Thank you,

Valerio/DeRienzo/Deane Families

You can always count on being greeted with a smile and professionalism. Making memories that will last a lifetime is his ultimate goal for all of his guests who walk through the door!
