Before we opened the restaurant or appeared on national television shows Sweet P’s did one thing and we did it well. We were founded as a catering company. Ten years later we are still taking care of our customers and meeting their catering needs every day of the week.
When it comes to catering Sweet P’s has done it all. We’ve catered everything from tailgating parties to weddings and corporate functions to charity events. Whether you have 25 or 1000+ people we can take care of your party or event. Although we have catering packages we are always happy to customize any package to suit the needs of our customers.
Feel free to call or e-mail us anytime to talk about your next event. If you are planning a large party or wedding we encourage you to make an appointment for a tasting at the restaurant.
Please note, there is an order minimum for deliveries (see our FAQ page) plus a delivery fee. We also require a minimum of 48 advance notice for all deliveries.
“Sweet P’s has provided catering for two different fundraisers for several years now, and each experience has been top-notch. One fundraiser fed around 400 guests in a buffet style setting, and the food quality was excellent as well as the support staff. The other fundraiser fed around 300 guests, and Sweet P’s support staff pitched in to get the food plated and delivered to tables in an efficient manner. On every occasion, our guests have commented that one of their favorite elements of the fundraisers is the excellent food provided by Sweet P’s. It truly is a Knoxville favorite.”
“We asked Sweet P’s to serve over 600 VIP attendees both meat and vegetarian options and they excelled at both. The service was quick, clean and the food was outstanding. I would highly recommend Sweet P’s to any groups who are looking for a great food option (both meat and vegetarian) and a level of professionalism in their service that will help make your events a success.”
“What an awesome experience for our 63 guests by having Sweet P’s BBQ provide all of the delicious food, catering, service and southern hospitality at our Enhancement Group Dinner at our lakeside home this past April! Not only was Sweet P’s execution spot-on the day of the event, but they were a vested partner in the months prior as we discussed menu options, budgets, sampled various dishes, reviewed dietary restrictions for select guests, back up plans for rain, recommended southern hospitality minded staff, and they strategized an effortless set up and dismantle. Our guests to this day, still contact us and rave about the delicious southern dining experience that night!”
“The guests, including BBQ connoisseurs, loved the food Sweet P's catering. Doug Shock was great to work with and helped us decide what would work best for the number of people and gave us updated estimates when our numbers changed…We highly recommend.”
“The event coordination from planning to execution was a big undertaking and Sweet P’s professional staff performed with excellence. The ease at which we were able to plan a quality meal for so many was outstanding. Our guest were genuinely impressed with the quality, flavor, and hospitality presented to them during the event.”
“Sweet P's Barbeque catered the wedding reception of my daughter's wedding providing a fabulous menu, and both regular and alcoholic beverages for over 500 guests. Mr. Doug Shock and Mr. Chris Ford worked closely with me and the wedding couple to provide a menu and beverage options that our hungry crowd would enjoy. Sweet P’s staff was friendly and did an excellent job keeping up with the needs of the guests. Several of our friends complimented us on the food quality and unique and delicious menu choices. Sweet P’s was very professional, attentive and our family was extremely pleased.
