Our Story

For more than 60 years the Patton Family has been delivering the taste of New Orleans to satisfied guests across the country.

In 1954, Oliver and Shirley Patton began a small catering business in the back of their grocery store.  Their legacy continues today in the capable hands of their five children - Gail, Pat, Tommy, Timmy and Terry - who have made Patton's one of the top three independent caterers in the New Orleans area.  This is no small feat when considering the tough competition in a city that revolves around food.  But hard work, delicious dishes and a dedicated staff combine to create excellent events.

In 2002, the Patton children purchased the historic Salmen-Fritchie House in Olde Towne Slidell which is available to host your special event.  Patton's continues their solid family tradition through their catering endeavors with all five siblings at the helm.  They are joined by Pat's daughter Stephanie and Gail's daughter Roxanne.  It's a family affair!

We welcome the opportunity to become a part of YOUR family's tradition by serving up a successful event, large or small.  Please feel free to give Patton's a call today at 1-866-6PATTON or 985-645-3600 to request an event proposal.
