In 2010, the Lion House prepared meals for more than 120,000 guests in The Pantry Restaurant, served 56,000 guests at banquets and weddings and hosted more than 5,000 children’s birthdays.
“I really am grateful it wasn’t torn down and that we have a nice place for guests to come to,” Ulrich said. “We have guests from all over the world here. It’s really neat to have those people come and eat dinner in this facility and feel the spirit of Brigham Young and the gathering place.”
