Sustainability

What’s black and red and green all over?

As a proud provider of delicious food, it is vital that each of us do what we can so that this beautiful Earth, the source of the ingredients for our food, will continue to be a bountiful source to us all. Which is why, in an effort to align with the rapidly growing movement toward sustainability, Amici Catering is proud to do its part by switching to compostable and recyclable premium cutlery and dinnerware. Additionally, we love that the food waste from our kitchen goes to our partner, Recycled City for composting.

Partnering with local suppliers is one more way Amici Catering supports the community. Our clients benefit from getting the very best from regional businesses, we reduce environmental impact by minimizing product shipping, and – perhaps most importantly – we focus economic investment dollars right here in Arizona.

Food connects us, comforts us, and sustains us. We look forward to serving you, and Mother Earth, for many years to come.

Community

At Amici Catering, we are passionate about creating food that people love to eat.  We love hearing a newly married couple rave to their guests about the food at their reception. We love it when guests at a not-for-profit event whisper to their friends about how “this isn’t typical ‘gala food’”.  

We love helping you create memorable events for all the milestones, large and small, in your life.  It is why we do what we do, and what fuels our passion, day in and day out.Scott & Lori Harlig, Owners

Measurable Impact

In addition to countless hours of time donated to community organizations, we make a dramatic and measurable impact on those organizations’ bottom lines through our cash and in-kind contributions.

  • In 2015, we catered over 40 non-profit events and donated an average of 12% of revenues to save these worthy organizations nearly $45,000.
  • By donating gift certificates to event auctions, we help raise even more for our non-profit partners.

Employment

Hiring Philosophy

We run our company based on the belief that catering is hard work but lots of fun.  Our team is full of people who bring positive attitudes to work, are committed to making every event great, and love to be creative in producing the very best food and service. While we love people with lots of catering experience, attitude comes first – we seek people who smile, make eye contact, are happy to be here, and never want to stop learning and improving the craft. And if they’re willing to wear a costume, sing or dance when appropriate, all the better!
