Thank you for your interest in Atlasta Catering and Event Concepts! Established locally in August of 1979, Atlasta has provided event planning and catering service statewide to individuals, universities, charities and corporations for thirty one years. Word of mouth, intense attention to detail and a reputation of excellence have enabled Atlasta to grow from a small office suite with one six burner stove and one catering van into being consistently ranked in the top three by The Phoenix Business Journal in the category of Arizona’s largest catering company (2005-2010). With an internally trained staff of full and part time banquet servers, over thirty years of event planning experience, classically trained chefs, the advantage of owning our own equipment and vehicles and a 10,000 square foot production kitchen, Atlasta’s edge in the catering industry is unparalleled and enabled Atlasta to become Arizona’s most diverse catering company.

Our sales team is here to assist in all facets of event planning, including site selection, menu development, rentals, entertainment, decor and staff. Atlasta’s service is beneficial to those planning different types of events including, elaborate or simple weddings, small or large personal functions, proms, corporate lunches, multi-day and multi-city conferences, fundraisers or even monthly meetings. Whether you are planning an event for 2 or 200,000, our team is ready to alleviate stress, produce results and exceed expectations. Let our staff arrange for your guest seating, linens, floral arrangements, decor and entertainment.

Chef/ Owner Steve Short has been featured in Arizona Food and Lifestyles “Chefs and Their Kids” issue, The Business Journal’s 40 under 40 business people issue, Phoenix New Times, the Arizona Republic, Arizona Foothills, Arizona Trends and on Channels 3, 5, 10, 12 and 15. Most recently Steve was a speaker at the Reynolds Center “Covering the Green Economy” Seminar held at the ASU Cronkite School. Much of the discussion revolved around Atlasta’s commitment to building an environmentally ethical catering business. The food industry on a national scale is not known for being environmentally ethical or proactive and in recent years there has been pressure to become ‘green’. This has resulted in many companies ‘going green’, sometimes actually doing so and sometimes not. The truth is being an environmentally ethical company is both ideal and an extremely intensive process. In an effort to fully inform our clients and staff regarding our end goals and steps we are taking to achieve them, our course is carefully charted, evaluated and available for discussion.

It is our mission as a team and as individuals to provide an experience where the focus and attention paid to the menu, service and atmosphere is not only remarkable but further enhanced by ourcommitment to lessen our impact on the planet. Each day we are mindful of our choices and how they directly relate to our guest’s experience and also to our world. In keeping with our goals we pledge to: utilize and support local Arizona farms, build and execute menus based on seasonality, use organic produce, grains, dairy and meat products, purchase from farms that practice sustainable farming, use non-toxic cleansing agents and use biodegradable, compostable or recycled products.

Atlasta provided a memorable night for us at our wedding. We mostly dealt with Alice, who was amazingly sweet and kind. She had great ideas, and provided a lot of feedback and insight into what we wanted.
When we got to our final walk-through at the Venue, Tempe Center of the Arts, Alice wasn't there but we had another agent Kelsey. She was caught up on our wedding, but was a little pushy about adding more services such as linens or tableware, etc which was a bit uncomfortable. The last thing you want to do, after you've already paid is thinking about paying for more services.
Overall, the wedding itself was amazing, everyone loved the food, and they even gave us some to-go which was awesome, as I don't think either of us really ate on our wedding day. The servers day-of were amazing and very thoughtful, seeking us out to ask if we needed anything during the whole day.

We had a great experience overall with our dealings with Atlasta. It definitely was a long relationship. We started tasting food in early 2014 for our March 2015 wedding, and we were in regular contact with our representative Alice. I have to give Alice a ton of credit; she was professional throughout, always willing to work with us as much as possible on menu choices, pricing options, and presentation requests. She was very timely in her responses, and did a great job of explaining any issues that we were not able to have go our way.. I can't recommend having Alice as your contact enough.

In regards to the food, we had so many people approach us during and after the wedding to say how good the meal was for the reception. Not just good for a wedding, people were surprised how quality of a meal that they were receiving. It was great to be able to mix and match menus, and we thought our choices really reflected our tastes.

I think the alcohol was the only area where there was some struggle, but most of it was due to the limits of our venue. It took awhile to come to an agreement that worked for both of us, but once again, Alice did a fantastic job of being open and honest about what they could and could not do, and tweaking things when she could.

Service was fantastic during the event. While I didnt approach the buffett, the servers were attentive and very helpful to my bride and I, and we did not hear one issue with any of the service providers.

Overall, we had a great experience with Atlasta. Considering we were "stuck" with them as a vendor (they are one of 4 options at our venue), we could not have had a better experience.

Atlasta Catering put on an amazing presentation and spread at our wedding! Alice, the sales manager was so easy to work with and she is so sweet.... even with all of the changes I kept on making the last week prior to our wedding. :-) Our guests couldn't say enough good things about the food. We also had them for our open bar- the only thing I wish was better was higher quality and selection of alcohol- a little Jack Daniels would have brought the party up a notch. They had our dressing rooms filled with yummy food and drinks as well. I would definitely hire them again!

The food at my wedding was amazing and beautifully displayed. That was important to me that he food wasn't just in chaffing dishes. They even packed us a bag to go including leftovers, cake, champagne and plastic flutes to enjoy in our room afterwards.

Atlasta provided the catering services for my wedding and we were very pleased with the quality of food and service. Throughout the whole process, everyone we were in contact with at Atlasta was very quick in their responses and extremely helpful. Our tasting was great and they were very accommodating in letting us choose items from several different menus to get the meal we wanted. As soon as my husband and I arrived to the reception, the servers brought us over prepared plates of food so that we could eat before we started mingling with guests. The food was great (especially the bacon tortellini carbonara!) and all of our guests said they enjoyed it.

Atlasta Catering was a joy to work with! They created an awesome Southwestern vegetarian menu for our wedding. We had several people come up to us at the reception telling us how great the food was, especially the southwestern pasta! They even brought beautiful flowers to dress up the buffet, that matched our wedding decor perfectly!

If you're looking for a professional, attentive staff for your big day, go with Atlasta Catering!!

Atlasta's food was amazing and the service was flawless. The staff was particularly helpful with me as the bride, making sure I had water or cocktails before the wedding, and provided me with a take-home bag at the end of the night with two boxed dinners, champagne glasses and champagne. They were so friendly and were helpful with a few last minute requests I had before the wedding.

The food was delicious! Alice and Jenn were great to work with and very accommodating of our vastly varied menu requests. The staff at the event were fantastic, particularly our captain, Alicia, who made sure that we had a chance to eat at least a few bites at the reception and packed doggie bags for us to have at the hotel later. (Confession: We were so tired, we never actually ate the food she sent with us, and I had a guilt complex because I KNEW how delicious it was!) Highly recommend this caterer!

We loved working with Atlasta! After speaking with Alice Moon the first time and then experiencing the tasting, we knew this was our caterer. Alice and the rest of the wonderful staff made our lives so easy. We made a lot of changes the weeks and days before the wedding, and Atlasta were great at accommodating everything we requested. The food was amazing and our guests enjoyed both the food as well as the service. They did a great job the day of the wedding at setting up and got everything done with no worries on my end. The staff went out of their way to take care of us and our guests and left a great impression on all. Great job!

Alice and the Atlasta team were great to work with. They were incredibly flexible, both with the menu and the day-of details. For example, we had specific ideas about how the bars would be set up, but the venue was not able to accommodate those easily. Alice volunteered to have a “partial bar set up” just for cocktail hour, so that our guests would not have to wait in long lines! We had a few specific food items we wanted to include, and the chefs took our ideas and delivered something that was even better than we imagined! Alice was responsive over e-mail and always professional. We made a lot of changes to the menu over the nine months of planning, and she was always gracious and friendly, even if those changes meant more work for her.

We met with several other catering companies and Atlasta gave us (by far) the most bang for our buck. We thought this great value might mean subpar food, so we scheduled a testing even before signing a contract. The food was great, and Alice was able to incorporate our suggestions on the spot! The food at the wedding (for 140 guests) was just as good as it was at the tasting, when they were cooking for 5 people. We received a ton of compliments from our guests about how great the food was! We also heard (repeatedly) about how nice the staff/bartenders were, how pretty the station set up was, and how impressive the quantity and variety of food was. (What people didn’t know is how reasonable the pricing was!) Atlasta has great people from top to bottom, and that made our wedding day run smoothly. I would recommend them to anyone getting married, or throwing a party!
