Saz’s Hospitality Group expanded its catering service throughout Waukesha County and west to Madison with its newest division, Saz’s Catering Lake Country.
Saz’s Catering Lake Country operates out of Western Lakes Golf Club in Pewaukee, where Saz’s has been the exclusive caterer for Western Lakes for 18 years. The new division will now cater off
Premise, as well.
Chris Wright, general manager of Saz’s Catering Lake Country, has already partnered with the Concord House and Holy Hill Farm Market as their preferred caterer and is negotiating additional locations as far west as Madison.
“We are available for casual get-togethers and picnics as well as elegant events and weddings,” Wright said. “We’ve been serving the Waukesha/Pewaukee area at Western Lakes, but have had strong interest from companies and individuals for offsite catering in this area and much farther west. This new company will be able to bring Saz’s great food to a much broader audience.”
Joe Brueggemann, catering director for Saz’s, said, “We will cater for anywhere from 20 people to 20,000 at homes, companies and a variety of other venues.”
“When we started the catering service for Western Lakes Golf Club the golf outings were the primary business for us – with an occasional wedding or company meeting thrown in,” said Steve Sazama, the company president commonly known as “Saz.”
“Between the extensive renovations to the banquet facilities and Chris’s excellent leadership, we have expanded the weddings and events portion to around 80 percent of our business there. So when Chris came to me with the concept of branching out toward Madison and really any place within that range north or south, I thought it was a logical direction for growing the Saz’s brand,” Sazama said.
Milwaukee-based Saz’s Enterprises includes Saz’s State House Restaurant, Saz’s Barbecue retail products, Saz’s Catering, Saz’s Catering Lake Country, Saz’s Festivals, and Sazama’s Fine Catering.
