PORTLAND, ORE. FEBRUARY 09, 2016
VT Group, the company behind two of Portland’s largest and most successful catering businesses, today announced it is fully operational at its new location at 2010 SE 8th Avenue in Portland. The freshly renovated 43,000-square-foot facility is home to Food in Bloom Catering, Vibrant Table Catering & Events, Vibrant Flowers and the administrative portion of f&b cafe. It features a beautifully decorated client reception area and tasting rooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen, a floral and décor design area and ample space to house and stage the equipment allowing Food in Bloom and Vibrant Table to produce the unique culinary experiences for which they are known. There are also several areas throughout the building slated for event space.
“Over the past 15 years, our companies have enjoyed consistent growth year after year,” said Art Fortuna, president and owner of VT Group. “With more staff and more events happening simultaneously, we were simply running out of room. The new facility has given us the ability to be more efficient and effective and accommodate for future growth. It is located in a part of town emerging as a food and beverage industry hub and features several nearby breweries, distilleries, coffee roasters and even a cheese maker. We’ve only been here for a matter of weeks, but it already feels like home.”

They are also exclusive or preferred catering and events partners at many of the best venues in town including the Portland Art Museum, The Exchange Ballroom, The Lan Su Chinese Garden, The Treasury Ballroom and Montgomery Park.
