Butler’s Pantry, a second-generation business founded in 1966, announces their 50th year Jubilee in 2016.
This pivotal milestone for the catering and event design company brings a year of celebration and giving back to the community.
Butler’s Pantry was the dream of Richard (Sr.) and Anita Nix who founded the business in 1966 on one principle: to provide the most innovative and creative catering company to St. Louis. Richard Nix Jr., President of Butler’s Pantry, is fueled by the same passion for excellence and continues to operate Butler’s Pantry under the guiding principles of his parents.
That driving ambition sets the stage for the next 50 years.
As Butler’s Pantry looks forward to the next 50 years, the company is deeply committed to maintaining and growing culinary distinction to help others achieve event goals in a memorable fashion. Butler’s Pantry will also continue their commitment to the St. Louis community through a new initiative: Full Pantry, Full Life. With the hopes of feeding 50,000 St. Louisans, Butler’s Pantry will donate $5 for every 50 guests fed in 2016 to support the needs of local food pantries.
“In my eyes, every day is a celebration,” said Richard Nix Jr., President of Butler’s Pantry. “We’ve built success out of passion and 50 years could never be possible without our hard-working staff and the wonderful community in which the business resides. St. Louis can count on Butler’s Pantry to deliver creative menus, consistent results and innovative design for any size of event for the next 50 years!”
“In my eyes, every day is a celebration”
To commemorate the 50th anniversary, Butler’s Pantry has enlisted the artistic services of Nori Obata. Obata, who was born and raised in St. Louis, crafts unique porcelain ceramic tableware for display and functional use. Butler’s Pantry will gift the artists’ work with some events in 2016. The one-of-a-kind serving platters will boast a hand –painted abstract design of an iconic local structure, and will be gifted throughout the year.
