Founded in 1995, LUX Catering and Events has continually grown as one of the top Utah catering companies. We help our customers build events for the future. This philosophy is born from our love of food, events, telling stories, pushing boundaries, and creating experiences.
We are a team of artisans, pioneers, and mavens with a lifetime of combined expertise. We know every secret spot in Utah and every well-known and unknown artist, performer and vendor. Our turnaround time is unmatched and our events don’t just thrill attendees, they blow away (even the most discriminating) clients.
We are committed to regional cooking that continues to create dramatic menus for our clients. We create our food from scratch with all-natural ingredients. Because we focus on providing the freshest and most delicious menu options possible, we strive to have as much of our food prepared on site in our kitchens as possible rather than purchasing prepared or frozen foods. This allows us to hire more bakers, chefs, servers, and kitchen staff to bake, prepare our foods, and work events, thus supporting our community, strengthening our local economy, and welcoming new members into our little family.
We feel it is our responsibility to take a close look at our impact on the environment and do our part to protect our planet and the beautiful state we live in. We are committed to a better, cleaner world for all of us. LUX is one of the first caterers in Utah to have an award-winning, comprehensive recycling program in place. On average, we have 150 lbs of food waste per day - that’s 27 tons per year! Instead of taking up space in a landfill, these scraps and leftovers are composted into fertilizers for city parks and local farms. A variety of items enter our kitchen on a daily basis, but only four things end up at the landfill: plastic wrap, tape, gloves, and solid items that accompany food, such as aluminum foil. The rest is recycled or composted.
We are always looking for new and creative ideas to bring to our clients. Bringing what’s new and trendy while still maintaining our focus on the environment can be a challenge. We love recycling something old and making it into something unique and trend-setting. By being a forward-thinking company we have been able to take home six international catering awards for our unique events, design, and food creations.
At LUX there is a mission statement to live by — “To inspire the world by creating exceptional events and memorable experiences through collaboration and innovation.” This comes into every aspect of an event for us, and we believe it propels us toward our goals and growth for the future.
