  About Us

Take Out Thyme Catering
has been serving quality meals in Knoxville and the surrounding area since 1998 so we have the experience to assist you in planning your next catering event.

We are a family owned and operated business and we take great pride in exceeding our customer’s expectations. My name is Kevin, my partner is my brother Kirk and we have over 50 years of restaurant experience between us. My son Jordan is our kitchen manager and has 18 years of restaurant experience (he started with us when he was 6 years old washing dishes)! My wife Ann is in charge of procurement and pre event equipment set up. We have five other employees that have been with us for a minimum of three years and many past employees that help with large events..

We are a small company and that is a great advantage to our customers. When they book a job they know we will be taking care of everything including helping plan the event, purchasing quality products, prepping and cooking the meal and delivering and working the event – ask our competition if their owners will be this involved in your event! 
A Word From Our Customers

Kevin and Kirk, We wanted to send a huge thank you for alll you did at our son’s Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. We never had a meal catered before and were very nervous planning a special meal with someone of whom we had never heard. You were out of town for us however you came highly recommended from Dawn at Candlewood Suites. The Bride commented on how easy you were to work with, offering samples to help plan the menu. You were also very helpful when we stopped by showing us the different items you offered along with the tablecloths and utensils used. The food was great. We had many compliments on it even after the wedding! The set up was very functional and appealing, bringing out the best in the offered items. We had more than enough with Kevin setting up the food and staying until the end. It was so nice for us to be able to visit with our guests and not have to worry about food or clean up. We would highly recommend Take Out Thyme to anyone, especially someone from out of town.
Thank you again for your business and services.

We have used Take Out Thyme Catering several times for our company functions with terrific results! My employees constantly remind me of how good all the food items taste and how much they appreciate the meals. I don't think they would let me use any other catering company! You truly get great food at great prices and most importantly you deal with great people!! Thanks for making our company meetings better!!

As a surgeon in a busy practice, I really appreciate Kirk and Kevin and all the people at Take Out Thyme. We've used them in a variety of situations and they've always come through with great food and excellent service. My staff likes them so much, some of them have used TOT for their weddings and other gatherings. They've always been there when I've needed them.

In the past I used several different caterers. Now I use Take Out Thyme exclusively. Their food is phenomenal, their service and responsiveness is impeccable, and they are on time…every time. Actually I’m starting to think they know my customers even better than I do!

For my catering needs, Take Out Thyme (Kevin and Kirk) are as near perfect as it gets. For full service catering, I call, give them the details, and know they will be there on time, with enough food, at a fair price. Their food is excellent and their quality is always consistent. They laminated a sign providing my name and company so I get credit for lunch. They even leave a corporate issue sign-in sheet for me so I get all of the required signatures and I don't have to be there for all the early feeders and I can maximize my time. These guys make my life easier and I can honestly give them my highest recommendation, because I have never been disappointed. My thanks and appreciation to Kevin and Kirk!

What a wonderful winter day to celebrate the holiday season at the ladies home tour and luncheon. I always love this event. It is a chance to catch up with old neighbors and meet new ones.Our neighborhood is so special to continue this annual tradition through the years. We have used Take Out Thyme for the last three years, and I have also used them for years at church functions. They are easy to work with, the food is consistently good, portions are generous, and pricing is very reasonable.
