Love and Passion: The Story Behind Orange Beach Concierge Services
Orange Beach Concierge Services was born from our love for each other . . . our love for this marvelous Gulf Coast community and its special residents & visitors . . . as well as our passion for delivering highly personalized, cherished experiences and memories.
We are David and Tillie Pan — husband and wife, business and life partners — the team behind Orange Beach Concierge Services. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching and engagement season in full swing, we wanted to share our story . . . .
Tillie has long been driven by her passion for making clients feel like royalty. From a career as a corporate marketing executive for international brands like AVEDA and L’Oreal to a medical equipment sales career in the dermatology and plastic surgery markets, Tillie honed her skills for meticulous organizational and event planning.
It was during this career that Tillie met her husband David Pan, a talented and acclaimed chef. After graduating from Le Cordon Bleu Mendota Heights, Chef Pan was able to cultivate his love of creating and presenting world class cuisine alongside noted chefs such as Chef Russell Kline while at elite culinary establishments including the 3 Diamond rated WA Frost in St. Paul, the Minneapolis Club, and the James Beard winning Gustavus Inn.

The marriage of those skill sets and passion for total customer satisfaction set the perfect table to create Orange Beach Concierge located on the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast. We take the same level of personal pride in planning and catering lavish events as we do in providing personal chef services for vacationing families or an intimate private dinner celebration for anniversaries or birthdays. Along with his top reputation within the Gulf Coast restaurant community, Chef David directs the culinary services for Orange Beach Concierge.
In 2017 we decided to expand our offerings from event planning, catering and private chef services to create a convenient outlet for world class cuisine for pickup and takeout. The idea led to The Pantry — Gourmet To Go. From our location at The Wharf in Orange Beach AL, we provide a wide menu variety of gourmet cuisine for quality-conscious locals and vacationers. We insist on sourcing local ingredients like fresh Gulf seafood and garden fresh vegetables. The Pantry provides full menu planning for an easy any-night dinner gathering or complete catering for a special business or family occasion — large or small.
Along with opening of The Pantry, we opened The Space in 2017. This 1,800 square foot event venue, also conveniently located at The Wharf, can plan and stage events of any type for up to 100 people.
We love what we do. We share a passion for highly personalized, pampered experiences for your most special event . . . or for no occasion at all, other than You Deserve It!
We wish you all a happy and healthy 2018 and would love to see you soon at The Pantry, The Space or at your home, vacation condo, yacht, jet or event venue.
Love & Passion,
David and Tillie Pan (and our beloved pup, Leo)
