Marketing Specialist

Saz's Hospitality Group

Since 1976, Steve Sazama and his team have sought to provide "The Finest" in dining and service. This initial concept met with great success in the Saz's State House Restaurant, inspiring a following dedicated to Saz's BBQ and exemplary service.

Over time, and to meet its ever-increasing demand, Saz's has expanded both its physical presence and its service line. Forty years later, Saz's Hospitality Group consists of; two catering facilities (Saz's Catering and Saz's Catering Lake Country), a gluten-free BBQ product line in addition to other area-favorite retail products, a solid festival presence at the Wisconsin State Fair and world-renowned Summerfest (among countless other festivals), Sazama's Fine Catering housed within the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, and operations and venue management at South Second, a unique event space in Walker's Point, Milwaukee. Suffice to say, Saz's knows how to entertain. Whether our clients are planning a corporate event for 25 or dining for 25,000 fairgoers, Saz's helps to simplify entertaining while assuring the complete success of event and menu planning. While Saz's has been aptly awarded for its established roots in Milwaukee barbeque, catering menus spanning the spectrum from casual picnic to formal wedding fare are also on tap from Saz's Catering, Saz's Catering Lake Country, and Sazama's Fine Catering.

Whether our clients working within established venue or corporate guidelines, or looking for a one-of-a-kind event, Saz's experienced staff will ensure success, uncompromising quality, and unfailing attention to every detail from conception through completion. After all, we're in the business of helping people have fun and create memories around food, and that's not a bad gig to have!
