Catering
Story

At Custom Catering by Short Stop, we’re all about creativity in our food, service, drinks and partnerships.

Along with four chefs, Byron encourages exciting new food combinations and concocts menus that reflect the uniqueness of your special event.

From the stunning beauty of our tasting room to the smile on your server’s face, our goal is to delight you with every interaction.

We have been locally owned for our entire history, since 1995, but our roots go back to 1974 with the first Short Stop Restaurant in Sauk Rapids.

Still a locally-owned Central Minnesota caterer, we partner with other local vendors and venues to provide options like farm-to-table and organic plus locally-crafted drinks and craft beers.
