Kansas City, Missouri
Dutzel’s Catering was founded by Jeff Dutzel in 2008 when a local nonprofit asked him to cater a small event for 50. With the experience he had from previously working for another caterer, he knew it would be no issue! Following that event, they booked another event for 250. The quality and service of Dutzel’s Catering quickly spread. Jeff continued catering part-time as he worked in the education field as a high school marketing teacher and then a school administrator. In 2019, he left the education field and began catering full-time. Dutzel's Catering is the only caterer in the Kansas City area to be certified as an LGBT-owned business through the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
