Richard officially took over as owner and President in 1992 and since then, has revolutionized the business, turning it into the Premier Independent catering and hospitality company in the St. Louis region. Butler’s Pantry is known for its unending creativity and its unstoppable dedication to quality food, beverages, and service.
“It’s a true honor to be included among these tremendous leaders, many of whom I know and admire,” said Richard Nix, Jr. “I look forward to continuing to connect and collaborate with my fellow honorees to make our region even stronger.”
Richard will be honored at the Titan 100 awards on April 28th, 2022 at “The Factory” located in Chesterfield, Missouri.
