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.

Amazing Food and even better Customer Service
Where to start with Atlasta? The food? The people? Their mission? From the very first time I visited their website, I was hooked. Atlasta's mission to be sustainable while providing quality food and service to their clients captured my heart from the get-go. Their professionalism and communication was consistent and top-notch throughout the whole planning process. The tasting was quite impressive and (of course) delicious. Steve and Hannah treated us like we were their only event every time we talked with them - they remembered details and really made a point to build a relationship with us. The night of went so incredibly smoothly and we felt they took care of every detail - even down to arranging the dessert table when they didn't provide the desserts! Our guests raved about the food and especially loved the nacho bar provided at cocktail hour. Atlasta so easy to work with - I wish I had another wedding coming up so I could work with them again!Sent on 03/31/2020

Impressionable and unique!
Atlasta Catering and Chef Steve had quite the impression on our wedding! From the very beginning, the Atlasta team went out of their way to make our day special. To start, we were offered an intimate tasting with all the options Atlasta could provide and walked away wanting everything on the menu. The flavors and presentations were so unique for wedding catering and were full of southwest flavors. Our guests raved about how they'd never had anything like short rib and sweet potato gnocchi at a wedding! How yummy it was! Thank you for making our day so special!Sent on 12/16/2019

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
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
