Serving East TN Since ’84

Susan and Nathan Rothchild began their food service career as owners of the Northshore Minute Chef, a local Knoxville snack shop in the Northshore Tower. After a brief time, the couple expanded their services at the Tower to a 20-table restaurant. After opening the restaurant, their catering career grew naturally as patrons would request orders from the restaurant to serve their private parties. Over time, Rothchild Catering expanded their operation and found a permanent home at 8807 Kingston Pike in West Knoxville where the company operates today.

8807 Kingston Pike is home to Rothchild Catering and Conference Center, a 7-room venue with private rooms seating 50-700 guests. Rothchild Catering provides service to events in the conference center and throughout East Tennessee.

Rothchild Catering provided the dinner at our wedding in July, and they were wonderful to work with! Their staff was very responsive to emails and very helpful in accommodating dietary restrictions among our guests. The food was delicious, and the waitstaff was very professional! We would happily work with them again.

We had Rothchild cater both our rehearsal dinner and wedding dinner and “wow” is an understatement! The food was the best catering I’ve ever had. The portions were incredible and the service was great. We had so many guests tell us how good the food was and how they went back for seconds. We will be using Rothchild anytime we ever need anything catered.

WOW! This is the place to hold events in Knoxville. From the moment we arrived the staff volunteered to assist. The facility is 5 star and extremely clean. The food was amazing. We had lasagna and it was perfect. Again Susan and her staff make Rothchild’s a must to do business with!

I had my graduation party there on Cinco De Mayo. Of course, I had to have the theme for the day. It was decorated in bright colors and a black background for the selfie station with some color. The Mexican food was awesome, and my cake was beautiful and delicious with tropical flavors. My family is still talking about the experience. Excellent service! I will be back!
