About the Venue

Who are we?

Spectrum was officially launched in 1992 as an infant with modest beginnings company based in a now-legendary garage. However, our hospitality vision, experience, and know-how started to take root long before that when Dave Smalley, Founder & CEO, spent twelve years in the restaurant industry. This is where he began to hone his hospitality philosophy and skills. He and a core team began serving the Houston Open in 1984. Creating long-term, mutually beneficial relationships is a core Spectrum value, whether those relationships are with staff or with clients. It is the foundation of our success. Today Spectrum has grown to serve over 15 golf tournaments, 20 music festivals, and 30 venues. Spectrum’s family of clients now reaches across the United States and Canada, and our Catering, Concessions and Special Event services are unrivaled.
