Catering Spotlight: A Spice of Life Catering + Events

We have been working with A Spice of Life Catering + Events for years, and were excited to be able to get to know them even more.  We chatted with Dawn Meitz and Amanda Ruebl, the trusted event specialists we love working with!  Here is what we found out about them and their business:

Tell us a little bit about A Spice of Life

Our business was started almost three decades ago by our owners, David Rubin and Dan Bruckner.  Two entrepreneurial men who sought to turn a small catering company into the go-to caterer for North of I-70, and succeeded!  We design menus and coordinate full service events from start to finish.  We love the details, planning and execution; seeing all of the small pieces come together to create a seamless event for all is extremely satisfying.  As our mission statement says, we provide exceptional food and service while making our clients a guest at their own successful event.
