How We Got Here

Our Story

Y.Lo Epicure’s owner, Lisa Altenburg, moved to Denver after graduating from Clemson University (yes, the school that just won the 2017 NCAA Football Championship) for many of the same reasons we all know and love about this great city. While working for some of Denver’s larger financial institutions, catering was ordered regularly and she was consistently reminded that the available menu options were boring, the food didn’t taste fresh and the companies rarely accommodated guests with dietary restrictions. She then decided to put finance to the side and pursue a career path where her true passion lies - food, hospitality and service.

So in 2008, Lisa left her corporate finance position to put on the apron by purchasing the then three-team operation of Y.Lo Epicure Catering. What started out as a deli in Cherry Creek North (with and small behind the scene catering operation), today, Y.Lo Epicure now focuses solely on it’s catering core and operates with an incredible team of catering and culinary professionals from it’s own state-of-the-art kitchen.

Y.Lo Epicure is locally owned and operated by Lisa and Dax Altenburg (and their young son). The Altenburgs have called Denver their home since 2004 and are proud to be involved in several non-profit organizations and community associations. Get to know them better under our team section.


Our Name

We are often asked about our name, “Y.Lo.” It was originally derived from the name of the first owner of the business, Yvonne Lo. Since purchasing the business from Yvonne, we have continued to use the name to pay homage to how the business began.  Since 2008, we have strived to continuously grow and improve the catering experience for our clients and the company culture for our employees.

As our company continues to meet and exceed our clients' expectations everyday - we hope you'll think of us as Your Local Epicure for fresh food and outstanding service.
