The Secret Ingredient

From humble beginnings, in the modest kitchen of their first home, Jerry and Charlotte Lundergan along with Jerry's brothers Mike and Tom continued the family concession business and developed a world class off premise catering company.  Recognized as the premier caterer among world class horse farms like Spendthrift and Calumet and the equestrian elite in the Bluegrass, Lundy's quickly gained the eye of corporate clientele throughout Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.

As the business grew, so did Jerry and Charlotte's family. 

 Lundy's celebrates fifty years in the culinary industry, with a vast culinary portfolio of food and beverage hospitality offerings, from social and corporate catering, sports hospitality, rental, venue management along with decor and design consultation, and restaurant management.

 

Lundy's is still under the watchful eye of founding family members as daughters Alissa Tibe and Abby Dobson look to lead the company for the next fifty years.  The secret ingredient to our success, is one of family, support and dedication.
