Business

Whether you are working with a boutique catering and event planning company (like LUX Catering & Events) or not, tastings (or taste tests) are a common part of the catering and event planning process. Almost all caterers provide either paid or complimentary tastings as part of the event planning process, allowing there is still plenty of time between when you start your event planning relationship with your caterer and your event. While it's unlikely, if your caterer doesn't offer you one there are several important reasons why you should request one or choose a caterer that offers one. While each company has different policies or experiences with their tastings, at LUX Catering and Events we see our tastings as an integral component in the road we share with our clients in the event planning process and consider our tastings the pre show of our boutique catering experience that will culminate in their stunning event! Here is what you can expect from your boutique catering experience when working with Utah's premier caterer and event planner  as well as why all catering clients should request a tasting before they book a caterer.

Most people know that there are privately and publicly held companies, non-profits, LLCs (or limited license companies), INCs (incorporated), etc. While non-profits are their own separate type of business that is taxed and reviewed differently, with a much different business goal than other for-profit companies, even for-profit companies have  their own different classifications. Most companies like LLCs are known as S Corps, but there are also C Corps. Most of these distinctions have to do with how the business is taxed. However, there is a separate, and we believe and more distinctive, designation that companies in Utah may now be classified as. A Benefit Corporation. Several years ago, SB 133 was signed into law allowing Utah businesses to change their business designation to that of a benefit corporation - LUX Catering & Events was one of the first 13 businesses to jump aboard and take advantage of the new law and change our status from and S-Corp to a Benefit Corporation.

So, what exactly is a Benefit Corporation?

LeCroissant Catering & Events is honored and proud to be one of the few businesses in Utah registered as a Benefit Corporation. But what is a Benefit Corporation you ask? Let us explain a little....

What is a Benefit Corporation?

A benefit corporation is a newer classification of business here in Utah that aims to not only be in business for profit, but also to be transparent and accountable to the local community and the environment. "The purpose of a benefit corporation is to create general public benefit, which is defined as a material positive impact on society and the environment." Lux Catering and Events was one of the first out of 13 businesses here in Utah to immediately sign up for Benefit Corporation status when SB 133 was signed into law in 2014. Lux Catering and Events has been happy and proud to be one of the few Benefit Corporations and green catering businesses in Utah since the beginning!
