  • YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE

    (scroll below for the menu)

    You're finally getting married! First, Congrats!  It's a special day that requires special attention!  Let's make sure we do it right by never ignoring the lessons we have all learned over the years. 

    By the time you get married, you've been to how many weddings by now?  Likely a good amount.  Do you remember the food from those places?  You probably have to try to think really hard.  Why?  That's because the food always looks great on paper.  However, when it's time for the event, it's mass produced in a way that isn't spectacular.  If you do remember the food, you likely remember it didn't live up to expectations.  Did you have to tell the Bride & Groom it was still great? Terrible feeling.  They likely overpaid for the food as well! 

    When you budget for a wedding, you have to remember that times have changed dramatically and the cost of labor/service is two to three times as much as it used to be.  Practical couples are realizing that overpaying for plated service is a big waste of money.  If you have a very small group, plated meals can be great.  When you have a large guest list?  It's a terrible idea!  For large groups, plated meals are usually held in a hot box/heat lamp and it's just not as tasty when you are buying it for 100+ people at once.  On top of it, with the way the cost of labor has increased so much, do you really think they are employing the best of the best to make your food and serve it?  I'll let you decide that for yourself. 

    Frato’s Culinary Kitchen is a Food-First establishment that trains passionate college culinary students from the start.  We turn them into Certified Personal Chefs!  That means our Personal Chefs and Apprentice Cooks are serious about their career and they sincerely care about making your event the best it can be.

    Since times have changed, the big trend is Buffet-Style Weddings with a Food-First Focus! You can still serve traditional items or you can be more creative.  The more fun you have with the food, the more memorable it will be. 

    The best part, every Wedding has a Frato’s Certified Personal Chef and Chef Assistant on-site! 

    Be careful what food company you choose to go with.  Also, make sure you get a FREE Sampling!  Frato's ALWAYS offers FREE Wedding Samplings so you know what you're getting!
