About Thompson Catering

About Thompson Catering & Special Events

Based in Winchester, KY, Thompson Catering began as Thompson’s IGA Food Mart, serving grocery shoppers throughout the state nearly 70 years ago. The last grocery store was sold in 2000 with primary focus shifting towards catering, event planning and party equipment rental.

Our current line-up of catering and event professionals have a combined work experience of over 150 years in the hospitality business. We are a turn-key operation designed to allow you, the customer, to enjoy your party and mingle with your guests instead of worrying about a multitude of vendors.

The services we provide are ideal for large crowds. Our reach includes Lexington, Louisville, all of central and eastern Kentucky, West Virginia, North Carolina and beyond. We trust you’ll find our pricing competitive, our food presentation and quality first class, our equipment reliable, and our customer service second to none.
