Mintáhoe: MIN (like the state) TAHOE (like the lake)

In 1993, we opened our doors with one catering van and a few grills. Today, Mintáhoe Catering & Events is the largest privately owned catering company in Minnesota.  With four catering divisions and eight exclusive venues, we understand that every event and every client is unique. Thanks to our talented chefs, creative consultants, and professional event staff, we proudly cater more than 5,000 events each year!


Superb Service. Our Standard.

We have built our reputation for excellence in the catering industry with the understanding that each client is special. The success we have enjoyed as event experts is based on a longstanding philosophy that customer service, along with a professional and well-trained staff, builds long-lasting relationships with our clients. Each member of our Mintahoe team is required to complete extensive training and testing in all of the areas of our business.
