ABOUT INDY FRESH CATERING
WE BRING THE FLAVOR
INDY FRESH FOR INDY'S BEST
Indy Fresh is a locally-based catering company serving Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. We specialize in event catering for any occasion.
Catering gets a bad rap. How many times have you had a catered meal that’s just lackluster, both in look and taste? We’ve all been there. And that’s exactly the opposite of what we do.
Indy Fresh Catering brings you meals packed with flavor that have in fact been vetted specifically for traveling long distance to your catered affair. No wilted salads here, my friend!
We aim to be Indianapolis’ most trusted caterer, and think we’ve earned our stripes in that regard. Owner and native Hoosier Toby Nunley opened up our doors in 2013 to meet a growing a demand for an affordable Indianapolis caterer offering high-quality, scratch-made, full-service catering with a variety of menu options. Our sage catering team, including 30-year culinary industry veteran Executive Chef Craig Baker, know that both top-notch food and service are of utmost importance, and so, we deliver you with the stress-free and taste-bud-approved catering experience you deserve, every time.
OUR CORE VALUES
That’s because it is! Indy Fresh Catering’s food is made from scratch every single day.
As a local Indianapolis-based small business, we are focused on serving the needs of our community. We also work with local distributors and other local businesses to source our food items, including award winning BBQ sauce and Cornerstone Bread Co.’s baked goods.
Who wants to eat the same thing every time? We sure don’t, and neither do you, right? That’s why we’ve expanded our menu selection to offer variety, including Italian, Meat ‘n’ Three, BBQ, Soups and Salads, Breakfast and more. View Menus
MADE TO SERVE
We are not a restaurant trying to get in on the catering action. We are caterers, period. All of our menu items have been vetted for catering. We’ve tested them to make sure they hold up during travel in a car and keep looking and tasting great for hours over heat. And we bring you everything you need, from ice to cutlery, so you don’t have to give it a second thought.
Our team has been at this whole catering thing for a while, and has built a great reputation for service, if we do say so ourselves! We totally understand why you need your catering order to be on time, just the way you ordered it and delicious to boot.
AFFORDABLE INDIANAPOLIS CATERER
In our eyes, there’s no reason why “quality” and “affordable” can’t be the best of friends. Indy Fresh Catering offers our catering customers the best prices in town for a high-caliber of food and service.
While it’s always great when we get it, we don’t need advanced notice to fulfill your catering order. Our incredible Indy Fresh Catering customer service team gets the job done, and can be contacted via phone, email or even text message.
