Anthony LambatosCoach/CEOFooters Catering

Anthony Lambatos grew up in the catering business working for his father and founder of Footers Catering in Denver, Colorado. Anthony and his wife, April, purchased the business in 2010 and have successfully made the transition to a second-generation family business. With a focus on creating a great place to work, revenue has tripled since the purchase of the business. They recently moved Footers Catering into a new facility that will also house their newest venture – a 20,000 square foot event center called Social Capitol. In 2019 the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce named Footers Catering “Small Business of the Year” and they have been recognized as one of the best places to work in Denver by the Denver Post and Colorado Biz Magazine.
As a sought after speaker nationally within the catering industry, Anthony is passionate about helping businesses create a culture that allows their businesses to thrive. He specializes in heart leadership and management of teams with a focus on operational structure and employee engagement. Anthony and April also have a sister company called “MIBE” - MIBE is the acronym for “Make It Better Everyday” and the second part of the Footers’ mission statement. MIBE focuses on education around heart leadership and intentional culture building for the hospitality industry.

Anthony graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.S. in Business and in Economics. He is a 40 under 40 award recipient from the Denver Business Journal and was named one of Denver's top 25 most influential young professionals by Colorado Biz Magazine.
