A True Passion for Serving Others: Our Story
It is always our goal to serve our guests beyond expectation…serving Grandma and Grandpa so they do not have to walk to the buffet, ushering a guest to the restroom rather than pointing, and making sure the speaker has a hot dinner waiting for them at the conclusion of the presentation….we think of everything.
Where did that passion begin?
Heidi’s started with a home meal program in 1991 and was the first concept to thrive. One busy family led to another; then the first party, the first wedding, and so on.
Construction started with a state-of-the-art kitchen in October of 1995. Heidi physically did 80% of the work herself with help from family and friends. Since construction was not her area of expertise, it presented her with a challenge. “If you can read, you can learn to do anything, with a little help from Home Depot,” Heidi says. “How-to-do-books” and a desire to know everything took a great part in the development of Heidi’s success. The kitchen opened officially in April 1996 with a grand opening party: over 200 guests attended.
Today, Heidi’s Events & Catering is incorporated with over 11,000 square feet of kitchen, our office showroom, and the rental division in Tempe, Arizona. Heidi attributes her success to “hard work; as much as it takes, no debt; don’t buy until you can afford it, and to have something to do it all for.”
