Jenny and her team go above and beyond!!
Kahn's catered our September wedding at our family's property in Bloomington, and they were absolutely incredible. Even during COVID-19 and a postponement, Jenny and her team handled all of the changes and challenges beautifully and seamlessly. They were extremely professional, service was impeccable, and the food was delicious!!! They truly are passionate about the service they deliver and it was evident throughout the entire planning process and day of the wedding. Highly, highly recommend!!! They are simply the best.Sent on 10/02/2020

Exquisite food with amazing service.
Our experience with Kahn’s was outstanding. Like many 2020 couples, events forced us to adapt and evolve, but Heidi and Steven—each of whom handled our account—did a fantastic job navigating us through the process. They met any question with a prompt response and were readily available to meet with us in-person or over the phone to double-check details, walk us through cost estimates, and outline how their staff would operate the day off.
As for our reception, we can’t commend them enough. Steven and his team went above and beyond to make sure our reception was everything we dreamed of. They were especially attentive to us (the bride and groom) and made sure we got to enjoy our hors d'oeuvres, dinner, cake and specialty cocktails. They also made a special point to acknowledge and be aware of any guests with food allergies. Our guests raved about the food and praised the service provided by waiters and bartenders. Knowing they were pleased eased our anxiety tremendously. We wanted our reception to feel like a family reunion, and Kahn’s helped us achieve that goal. Well worth the price if you want amazing food, great hospitality and a stress-free event.Sent on 11/23/2020

Kahn's Catering went above and beyond in making our wedding day amazing. Their food was top of the line and truly tasted as though we were having fine dining at our wedding. We worked with MacKinze and she was super helpful and very responsive. I would normally get an email response back from her within the hour. The tasting experience was so fun and they gave you so much to choose from! Everything was so good that it was hard to narrow down to what we ended up choosing. Also, the cake company that they work with was AMAZING! The cake was so fresh and absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend Kahn's!!Sent on 11/17/2019

Team of Kahn's Catering
Senior Event Specialist
My career in catering began in Napa Valley, CA. In the mid 90’s while working for BV Vineyard, a friend and chef, asked me to assist with home party catering. The experiences were life changing and made me realize, that I wanted to make a difference in making a vision come true. Family ties in Indiana pulled me back home to raise my family where I grew up. Kahn’s Catering is the only catering company I would work for in Indy because it is like home. The core family doesn’t change, quality and high standards make us number one and it takes a village to make these events magical. For me, I am right where I want to be and honored to be a part of someone’s memory.
Event Specialist & Indian Wedding Specialist
My name is Freddie Klagstad. I have been helping brides from the engagement through the grand exit on their wedding day for over 20 years. I have been with Kahn’s Catering for 11 years of that time.
Over the course of wedding planning you become part of the family's lives. I love when couples fill me in on their lives, years after the wedding. It is exciting to see families grow each passing year.
Weddings are one of the biggest and most eventful days in one’s life time. Memories are made that last forever. There is always a story to be told. I have had a wedding during a blizzard, a drought an approaching tornado and now a pandemic.
The smallest wedding I have been part of was 6 people and the largest was 700 including a horse.
Over the years I have enjoyed many multicultural weddings. It is so exciting to combine to cultures, with each wedding I learn something new. It is wonderful to see people of different backgrounds and culture come together in celebration of the couple beginning their life together.
Through history couples are getting married in good times and bad times, rich or poor. Love still prevails.
I’ve spent a lifetime in this career field working to make guests happy and I’m hopeful you’ll allow me the opportunity to earn your trust and work to deliver an amazing wedding celebration for you.
I‘m a proud Hoosier. Though born in Minneapolis, I was raised in Indy and attended the Purdue School of Hotel Restaurant Administration. While I started in fine dining restaurants in my early teens, my career shifted early on and saw me working in luxury hotels for nearly 30 years, focusing on events. My ambitions took me to Florida to work for The Plantation and the Ritz-Carlton, both destination resorts on Amelia Island, with award winning events departments before taking my young family to Steamboat Colorado to open the Grand Hotel and again focus to premium, incentive events. We moved back to Indy in 2001 to be closer to our parents and to raise our kids. Upon return, I worked as the Director of Event Operations for the Indy Marriott Downtown before opening the JW Marriott in the same capacity. Both of these are premier event hotels. In 2012, I began my relationship with our team at Kahn’s Catering and served as the Food & Beverage Director. I’ve always been proud that it was never our goal to be the biggest, but to be the best while delivering incredible value. My extensive, high-end operations experience in making the magic happen translates into a unique expertise to now sell and plan excellent quality events right from the beginning. I’m passionate about what I do as it affords me the opportunity to use the left and right side of my brain in capturing and analyzing your details while also being creative in problem solving on the fly or delivering “WOW!” to you and your family and friends.
Thanks for checking out Kahn’s Catering. We look forward to serving you with the best food and the best service!
As a wedding and event planner you often gravitate towards businesses that if you have the opportunity to recommend you do because you know they will deliver on all your expectations. Kahn's Catering is one of those vendors on my preferred list.
If you want a stress free wedding reception or any reception, I highly recommend using Kahn's Catering. They are wonderful to work with. The food is phenomenal and the staff is fantastic. So much more than a catering service, they are full service wedding coordinators. Their attention to detail is impeccable and their service is extraordinary. If you are looking for a caterer (especially one that will customize their menu for you), look no further, Kahn's will take care of all of your catering needs.
