Masterpiece Cuisine, all for you! Massive Potential.

Business Development

Smith Durant welcomes Masterpiece Cuisine to the family! Masterpiece Cuisine was founded in 2007 by Scott Mahan and Tim Welc from their big ideas in a tiny home kitchen. Believing that food at catered parties should have the same high-quality ingredients and style as the best restaurants anywhere, and knowing that the people preparing and serving the meal should be as gracious and polished as the best service ever experienced, they created Masterpiece Cuisine and became the standard-bearer for catered events in Las Vegas, Santa Fe and beyond.

What we’ve been doing: Strategic planning, business alignment, and project implementation

Results so far: Clarity and focus on the big picture, execution of strategies and ideas, system development for measurable growth.
