Vibrant Table Catering & Events was founded by Art Fortuna and Kurt Beadell through a love of hospitality.
Coming from a culinary and management background, Kurt Beadell rose up the ranks at Papa Haydn. He soon sought a new challenge and connected with Rick Sadle at Salvador Molly’s to revamp their catering operations. Wanting to take event experience, food and stylish design to the next level, Rick and Kurt agreed to sell the catering business to Art Fortuna. Art helmed Atwaters in the US Bank Tower and had years of experience with Aramark. In 2001 Vibrant Table Catering & Events was born.
Over the years, Art and Kurt have expanded their business and partnered with some of the best venues in Oregon, earning exclusive or preferred catering status throughout the extended Portland Metro area.
Art and Kurt believe that high-quality event production and service can thrive in both small, unique events as well as large, complex events. Along with their talented culinary, operations and planning teams, Vibrant Table Catering & Events has executed thousands of events in Oregon and Washington ranging from intimate dinners to spectacular corporate events and non profit galas.
