About Us

Best Phoenix Caterer

What you need to know about us

What do you need to know about us.  Well – we go back to before 1993; that’s when Fat Freddy’s Catering began.  That’s when “Fat” Freddy Renstrom and his son Eric established Fat Freddy’s Catering in Phoenix, Arizona.   They started out providing catering service for friends and family.  That’s truly what we are all about – our clients are like family and we love catering for our friends and family.

As word started to spread about our great tasting food and professional catering services, the business moved from Freddy’s home kitchen into a commercial grade kitchen capable of producing food in greater quantity. Business steadily grew over the ensuing years.  We established a solid reputation for quality small to mid-size catering of weddings, graduations, birthdays and special events of all kinds. Our customer base expanded to large corporations;  catering to this niche demands a high degree of professional service and great tasting food. We delivered in meeting these demands and today our corporate clients represent a high percentage of our overall business.

What you may have heard about us

What people say about us is so important; it’s how we get most of our new clients.  We have many reviews here on our site as well as on many of the popular review sites.  We are proud to say we have catered events for well over a thousand people, but we still value catering to friends and family with groups as few as 15 people.

Basically, we can cater to all kinds of corporate events like ground breakings, grand openings, business meetings and employee celebrations.  We also cater to all types of special events such as team events, club meetings, church events, family occasions, life celebrations and most importantly –  wedding catering.  We have become recognized as one of the top Phoenix wedding caterers in Phoenix / Scottsdale.

What you probably don’t know about us

Freddy recently opened a barbecue division of the business.  Freddy has been doing barbecue for years but for the past several years only the large groups and events could get his brand of BBQ.  Now anyone can get the same great barbecue but in smaller, family size portions.  Check it out at www.FreddysBackdoorBBQ.com  — because you can pick it up from our ‘back door.’

About the Pineapple

Stand tall. Wear a crown. Be sweet on the inside.

The pineapple has served as a symbol of hospitality throughout the history of the Americas. The legend began with the sea captains of New England, who sailed among the Caribbean Islands and returned to the colonies bearing their cargo of fruits, spices and rum. According to the legend, the captain would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside his home to let his friends know of his safe return from sea. The pineapple was an invitation for them to visit, share his food and drink, and listen to tales of his voyage. As the tradition grew, colonial innkeepers added the pineapple to their signs, advertisements and bedposts carved in the shape of a pineapple were a common sight at inns across New England. This legend has continued to the present day; appearing on all sorts of decor from door knockers to quilts – the fruit symbolizes those intangible assets we appreciate in a home:  warmth, welcome, friendship, hospitality and it’s all about us.
