You Always Save Money with Fat Freddy’s Catering
It’s scary to sign a contract and it may not seem like it at the time but you will save money on wedding catering when you choose Fat Freddy’s. Something that Freddy has said for years, “We won’t be the cheapest caterer but I guarantee you that we won’t be the most expensive. What we will be is the best tasting and best bang for your buck.”
Our Catering Coordinators are always happy to help find and coordinate some of your other vendors. They are another sounding board for your “day-of” ideas and can offer suggestions to save money on wedding catering. We will never ‘over sell’ you and we will happily share our many years of experience in how to save money on wedding catering and more. You really get your money’s worth when it comes to the quality and quantity of our experience. You can’t put a price on experience but you shouldn’t discount it either.
Another thing that Fred always says, “There are two things that determine the value of your catering dollars; quality and quantity.” So many things fall into this category but when Fred talks he’s always talking about food. We only use the best quality ingredients in everything we make; Choice cuts of beef, fresh local produce, imported spices and seasonings
As far as quantity goes; It’s not a coincidence our name is ‘Fat Freddy’s.’ We aren’t one of those fancy caterers who only give you a dainty bite of food and call it dinner. You will always get a healthy portion per person and there is usually extras for those who want to go back for round two.
Top Ten Ways to Save Money on Wedding Catering
We found an old blog post about this same subject from 2017 and we thought we would go through it and share our viewpoint. Keep in mind that prices are different in different parts of the country; Arizona should be on the lower end of the price spectrum. This blog comes from a caterer in Texas READ THE BLOG HERE

“The cheapest is never the best and the best is never the cheapest.”
Taken from a Chinese Proverb
We have always been Top-Rated for our Phoenix Wedding Catering for over twenty-five years. We have the experience, knowledge, dedication and commitment to deliver the best tasting catering and the most professional service in Phoenix and throughout all of Maricopa County.
We may not have that many “Phoenix Wedding Catering” reviews …recently; we’ve been doing more corporate work in the last 5 years. Since Covid, we have gone back to more weddings and less corporate. We are actually enjoying working more of the full-service weddings; we feel like part of the family.
The chefs at Fat Freddy’s Catering are tops in their field; there is a difference between cooking and catering. Our servers are highly trained, experienced, professional, helpful, friendly and mostly family. Our wedding coordinators have years of experience not only working for Fat Freddy’s catering but also in the business of wedding planning.
Restaurants and small Mom-n-Pop caterers don’t usually have enough hands-on-deck to confidently pull-off a full-service wedding like we can. They may be cheaper, but that’s not really what you want out of Phoenix Wedding Catering.
