Additional Vendor Information: Spectrum was officially launched in 1992 as an infant 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 Shell Houston Open in 1984. Today it remains one of our most valued clients.
