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.

We were very pleased with all our wedding vendors, but Atlasta was our favorite vendor! From the moment we met with Alice Palmer we were impressed with the quality of service, flexibility and overall family feel we got from Atlasta. The whole team was incredibly responsive and always made us feel like we were more than just clients. This was very important to my fiance and I because we planned our wedding from out of town. Alice was flexible to meet with us during Christmas which was the only time we were in town, and was always reachable by email and phone. On the day of the wedding, the food was incredible, and our guests raved about it! To top it all off, Atlasta caterers drove to the hotel where we were staying the night of the wedding, and walked up to the roof to hand deliver our portions of leftovers that we forgot. The service was so impressive, and we really appreciated it when we were starving later that night and had food to eat! Atlasta gave us great service, delicious food, and a worry free reception, and we'd recommend them to anyone getting married at the Desert Botanical Garden or elsewhere!

Atlasta Catering was one of four approved caterers through Tempe Center for the Arts. We opted to go with them initially because they were the only approved bar service, and their pricing was right in our price range. We worked with Kelsey and Alice and they were absolutely amazing!! We served a breakfast buffet with mimosas for our wedding dinner. All the guests loved the food, and Atlasta was so much fun to work with. They plated us some to go meals for my husband and I which came in very handy in the wee hours of the morning post reception. My husband and I planned this from NC, and Atlasta worked with our schedules, and met with my parents who stood in for us when we couldn't be there. I wouldn't have changed a thing, they were professional and accommodating for what we wanted. We provided our own linens, and charger plates. We set the linens, but Atlasta set the charger plates with real silverware and kept acrylic plates at the buffet. It was so much fun and our guests had nothing but great things to say about the services!

Everyone at Atlasta was fantastic. From the day of my first email to them inquiring about their services. Alice was quick to reply to any email that I sent over. She was flexible with helping us set up times to taste the food and select the menu as well as last minute changes with our bar.

Our wedding went off without a hitch, everyone loooved the food and their on-site staff was exceptional. The bartenders were super friendly and my guest all had a great time.

So on behalf of my wife Denise and I, Thank you all sooo much….

Alice was amazing to work with - quick to respond, very patient with all of my questions, updates, and ideas, and flexible with any changes I wanted to make! The food at the wedding was even better than it was at the tasting, and I loved it then! The catering manager at the wedding checked in with us to make sure we were happy and was extremely attentive. The buffet went quick, the food was hot, and there were 0 issues. Everything was displayed so nicely too! We did our table, chair, linen and dinnerware rentals and the prices beat everyone else in outside rentals and it was much easier to go with one vendor for all of the seating/dining needs. Great selection too!

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!

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.
