    Best caterer in indy area

    The BEST, most PROFESSIONAl and CONSIDERATE catering team in Indiana. Our wedding reception was at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, catered by Kahn's. We received RAVE reviews from all of guests. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff was thoughtful and polite, and the room was absolutely lovely. I have nothing but positive things to say about the Kahn's team, particularly Steven and Jenny, who coordinated our wedding.

    We will forever be grateful. And I will never forget those scallops, or that goat cheese and beet salad. I am still salivating, ha!

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.

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!

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.
