I was working in our family butcher shop during the mid 1970’s when a good customer of ours came in one day and asked if we could cater a BBQ for him.  I proudly said, “Sure, no problem”.  After he told me what he would like to serve, I asked him how many people he was expecting?  He said, “Oh, about 1700, give or take a few.” After recovering from the initial shock of serving 1700 people with no experience, we spent many hours of  research as a family and it was then that we handled our first catered event. We were hooked. My sister Linda & I decided to name our new business after our father.  Hence, Dad’s Catering was born.
And so it continues…

 Since then, we proudly display the following honors:

Caterer of the Year Award” from Phoenix Magazine, Arizona Wedding Chronicle, Arizona Brides Magazine, City Search, New Times Magazine, Wedding Survey.com
