With Steve and Kristine Short at the helm, Atlasta has evolved to become one of Arizona's premiere catering companies. We have remained family owned and operated since first opening our doors over 30 years ago. Through the years, we have created a mindful, customized dining experience that honors farm-to-table cuisine.
Our award-winning chef, Steve Short, was motivated to reinvent the way the event industry operates and to execute events through the lens of sustainability all while maintaining the integrity of the special event business.
Atlasta operates its facilities around Arizona through a complex zero landfill system. We bring these systems to each event’s execution and can truly say our events result in zero waste. Our talented team is fully engaged in acting as local environmental advocates while bringing exceptional events to life.
Our long history of creating one of a kind menus and memorable events has repeatedly gained acclaim from various media outlets and publications. Recently, we were rated as a Top Catering Company from The Phoenix Business Journal. In addition, we have been featured in Arizona Bride Magazine, The Knot, and honored with the "Couples’ Choice Award" three years in a row by WeddingWire.com.
The secret to our success is actually no secret at all – we openly stand by the ingredients of our success; passion, service, community, ethics, sustainability and leadership.

At first Atlanta was just another cater that was on the approved list. With there even being a list I was nervous the food wasn't going to be great. They were the first company we went to a tasting for, and we were blown away with the experience. I was still skeptical as I thought this may be a show, but on our wedding day it seemed even better. The entire staff was responsive from the time we first emailed them to serving our food. Would highly recommend.Sent on 09/11/2019

We hired Atlasta Catering for our recent wedding at the Arizona Heritage Center. In a nutshell, Atlasta is professional, efficient, transparent, and a wise investment. I planned my wedding quickly over 5 months, and Atlasta had amazing customer service all along the way. Steve hosted our tasting an a site walk through at our venue and was SO detail oriented. I knew he would make sure our night went off as planned. The day of, the food was delicious (we got lots of compliments), staff was friendly and professional, and everything ran smoothly. I was a medium budget bride, and I'm so glad I invested in Atlasta to take care of some of the really important details of the day.Sent on 06/06/2019

From meeting Steve Owner/Head Chef to our wedding night Dinner. Everything was a 5 star experience. We are foodies and love to make sure people love the food. We received so my compliments on the food and service. Plus we were able to take home left overs. Yummy!Sent on 03/13/2019
Atlasta Catering has a stellar reputation and Arizona Heritage Center at Papago Park has worked for years with their representatives. We are always happy when event clientele choose Atlasta to cater an event at our museum.
One of our preferred caterers!
Always do a great job
