Frankies Catering is a branch of the Frankies Family Restaurants that originated in Waterbury, CT back in 1937. Still family owned and operated, we bring the food that everybody loves from our restaurant  directly to your house or catering facility.

Frankies Catering uses the same quality food service and cleanliness that our restaurants are famous for to make your event a success.  At all events we cater, the cooking is done on site and fresh, to ensure that your guests will have a most enjoyable experience. Frankies is experienced in all size parties, from small parties of 25 folks to serving 10,000 hotdogs in under 1 hour at a military base in Connecticut for our troops.
