In 2007, Colin and MaryBeth Smith opened Roundabout Bistro in the Somersett area (which is where the name came from), and it quickly became a locals’ favorite. The Bistro expanded to include a market with a burger bar, where patrons could purchase locally grown fresh produce and other locally-sourced products.
In 2011, the Bistro closed so that Roundabout Catering & Party Rentals could focus on the catering and event planning business. The business quickly moved from a home kitchen to a comprehensive catering facility featuring a large industrial kitchen, a fleet of delivery trucks, a full-sized food truck and a warehouse of party rental equipment. The team services several schools with a school lunch program, and also operates Roundabout Meal Prep out of the catering facility.
From 2016-2020, the Smiths operated Roundabout Grill inside The Whitney Peak Hotel in the heart of downtown Reno. Chef Colin’s inspired and fun approach to comfort food with a twist came to life in one of the most beautiful restaurant spaces in the city.
Chef Colin is the consulting chef for the Escape Lounge at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and the consulting chef and director of food and beverage for Nineteen 57 Bar & Restaurant located in the Club at Rancharrah. The Catering team also services the National Automobile Museum and The Elm Estate and manages food services onsite at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center.
In 2018, the Smiths acquired Tannenbaum Events Center, a beautiful venue nestled among towering pines and drifting clouds on Mt. Rose Highway. Tannenbaum’s versatile space allows guests to customize an event – the way it was meant to be envisioned.
Whether you need expert planning, catering or party rentals for a business event, retirement party or elegant wedding, Roundabout Catering & Party Rentals is ready to make your event the most memorable engagement possible.
