Southern Way Catering was founded by Jimmy Stevenson in 1982. We started as a small company with deep Southern roots and a philosophy that demanded the best in everything we did. That sentiment continues today. It is undoubtedly why we are now one of the largest, most successful, and most sought-after catering companies in South Carolina. 

Southern Way has been voted best in class in both the Midlands, and Upstate markets of South Carolina that we serve.  We were named one of the Top 25 Fastest growing companies in South Carolina, and recognized on numerous occasions for outstanding work in our local communities. 

Southern Way brings to the table a company grounded in delicious Southern cuisine and topped off with the best in fine dining service. No job is too big, or too small.  We specialize in off-site catering, and can travel anywhere in the Southeast.  We design and create large-scale, mobile catering kitchens and successfully choreograph teams of talented and experienced chefs and food service staff, event coordinators, floral designers, and party rental vendors to ensure every event is perfect. 

We have extensive background in athletic catering and large-scale commercial food service. In order to maintain the integrity of these events, we use elaborate infrastructure to cater for large groups without losing personal touch.  In addition, Southern Way Hospitality Group owns and operates Doc’s Barbeque Restaurant, Crisp Event Rentals, and Capital City Catering.  These outlets allow us to expand our offerings, and accommodate client needs on even the busiest dates.  

With more than 40 years of catering events from intimate dinners, and elegant wedding receptions, to large corporate galas, Southern Way is the caterer to turn to for any event that needs to be executed with perfection.
