Pride, honor, generosity, prestige—these are attributes that define the Taglyan family and, by extension, the Taglyan Cultural Complex. Since donating the Complex to the Western Diocese of the Armenian Church in 2007, the Taglyans have managed every event and philanthropic endeavor while adhering to these guiding principles and, in doing so, cultivated a philosophy of excellence which permeates all aspects of Taglyan Complex’s culture.
At Taglyan Complex, we strive to be the best event venue and catering company in the world by creating an inimitable experience replete with world-class service, five-star cuisine, and awe-inspiring ambiance. Though this goal would be admirable—perhaps even a bit too ambitious—for most event venues, we believe it is not only attainable, but incomplete; for Taglyan Complex to meet my family’s visionary criteria for success, business mastery must go hand-in-hand with a steadfast commitment to bettering the community in which we live and work.
The desire to improve our surroundings, on both a local and global scale, is one of my family’s core ideologies. For decades, the Taglyans have been some of Los Angeles’ most generous philanthropists, making large donations to local community organizations, supporting international charities, and giving to community-focused political institutions. By volunteering our time and resources to helping the hungry and needy here at home, we also embrace the belief that direct action, not monetary donation alone, is necessary for enacting real social change.
This Philosophy of Excellence expressed most visibly in our passionate, caring approach and uncompromising pursuit of perfection is the driving force underpinning every event within Taglyan Complex and every charitable action without. Because my family’s reputation—indeed, our very name—rests on our proficiency, professionalism, and moral conduct, you can be sure that my staff and I will give nothing less than our best to every client, event, and fundraising opportunity.
