green catering in utah

When you cater for thousands of people each year, you see the environmental impact of large-scale events up-close and personal! That’s why we adhere to sustainable catering and business practices whenever possible. For starters, our headquarters is 100% wind-powered through the Blue Sky Program, which means all the electricity we use is offset by wind-power energy we purchase.
