Wedding Reception at Glory House

Wedding Reception at Glory House

Glory House started with off site catering services to corporations, delivering lunches and event cuisine.  After establishing a repeat business base, the company began marketing to the private sector for private events and wedding catering.  With years of hard work, Glory House became a very popular caterer among many high end venues in the Dallas, Ft. Worth Metroplex.  Glory House secured placement on many preferred vendor lists and became well known in the private events and wedding industry in DFW.

Late 2007, Glory House expanded by purchasing an adjacent property and doubling the size its commercial space.  After remodeling and updating, Glory House opened for onsite receptions in August, 2007.  Since that time, Glory House provides services for onsite events weekly.
