In 2015, Karen and Gina solidified their passion for the hospitality industry by purchasing Inspired Catering & Events. This proud family tradition began with Phil in 1980 when he and his Uncle Lino opened their flagship restaurant, Stefani’s, in the heart of Lincoln Park. Over the past 35 years, Phil has created a prominent restaurant group consisting of ten restaurants, seasonal venues, managing conference and banquet facilities, airport kiosks and an off premise catering division, in the city of Chicago based on a business foundation of family values and traditions.
Today, Inspired Catering and Events prides itself on its unparalleled customer service, quality and attention to detail. Together with a dedicated staff Inspired Catering and Events brings the legacy of the company to over 100 off premise venues and Chicago street fairs, and continues to provide in-home private dining.
