Meet Abbie Lutz

Heirloom Recruiting was founded by Abbie Lutz, a recruiting and hospitality professional who combines nearly two decades of combined experience in those industries. Her mission is to match top culinary and front-of-the-house talent and corporate staff with the growing restaurant companies who need them. Abbie understands what it’s like to be “in the industry,” since she worked in customer-facing roles in restaurants and bars, as well as on the operations side of the business for nine years. She parlayed that experience to her career as a recruiter, rising to be a top performer in a firm specializing in hospitality. At Heirloom Recruiting restaurateurs and operations executives can expect a deep level of understanding and attention to detail while our team searches for the right hires to grow your business. Potential candidates will find us to be deeply committed to finding the ideal fit for your unique skills and personality.
