About us

1989

Founding of Maison Steffen

Frank Steffen, a master butcher by training, founds Maison Steffen in Steinfort, Luxembourg. His ambition: to fulfil his customers’ culinary wishes and delight them with local, healthy and delicious products of outstanding quality.

2003

A caterer that beautifies your festivities

Sought out more and more for its catering service, Maison Steffen founds Steffen Traiteur. More than a new company, Steffen Traiteur is the promise of an impeccable service that ensures the gourmet refinement essential to the success of your family banquets and business events, from the first course to the dessert.

2009

Tom Steffen joins the family business

Driven by the same consuming passion as his father, Tom Steffen joins the company as Assistant Account Director. It’s a natural choice for him after earning his bachelor’s degree in International Hotel and Food Service Management from the Institut Paul Bocuse, combined with valuable experience gained at prestigious establishments in Luxembourg and France.

2015

Fulfilling its ambitions

Having celebrated 25 years of success, at the start of the year the Steffen Group unveils a new building in Niederkorn, in the commune of Differdange, housing the storage equipment for the organisation of its catering business.

Gourmet cuisine has been in our DNA since the company was founded in 1989.

We are a team of men and women driven by our love of nature and good food. As dedicated perfectionists in the catering profession, constantly on the look-out for the healthiest, best prepared and most delicious food, we have decided to become active members of the Slow Food organisation because we support diversity of flavour, the benefits of a balanced diet that is locally sourced and the use of raw ingredients from produce and farms that respect the environment.

We have also been recognised by the Biogarantie label, which certifies that our products come from certified organic crops that comply with both environmental and social sustainability standards.

We are also the Luxembourg ambassadors of EPCAS, the European Party Caterer Association, with which we work in close partnership. Its objective is to professionalise the image of the best European caterers by issuing high working standards whilst presenting the latest technical developments in the culinary arts. Moreover, our artisans’ expertise and our large logistical capacities enable us to manage your entire event with complete peace of mind, whatever your needs may be.

We will be delighted to share the pleasures of delicious food and the satisfaction of a successful project with you, making your event truly sublime.

With these commitments in mind, we promise you an unparalleled experience and a convivial moment of infinite delight lived to the fullest.

Catering equals values

We aim to dazzle every customer
Forming long-lasting, personal relationships is part of our doctrine. Our artisan caterers stay in close contact with our customers so they can pass on any information likely to improve our service.

Each employee is an expert to be nurtured
Each of our employees must be able to nourish their mind and soul as they perform their work every day with enthusiasm and passion so that they can assume responsibility for essential projects they feel invested in.

Each child is a nugget to be cherished
The children of today will be the parents of tomorrow. We make every effort to give them a chance to experience new flavours, fresh food, healthy products, nutritional value and a balanced diet.

Our head waiter – your ally

The head waiter coordinates the work of the waiters and caterers according to the schedule you want. He meticulously orchestrates the work of the apprentice chefs, head chefs and sommeliers to ensure excellent service that flows smoothly.

Our waiters – your partners

The waiters set the tables and serve the food and drink, generally keeping things tidy with courtesy and attention.
