Shipman Catering

Tom Shipman started Shipman Catering in 1976. He is a second generation entrepreneur. With years of experience and expertise Tom and wife Fran, have grown Shipman Catering into one of the most desired and respected catering businesses in Hendersonville and surrounding counties. Shipman Catering can boast that it is the oldest sustained catering establishment in the area. 

Centered in the heart of Hendersonville, North Carolina, Shipman Catering offers two private catering houses, The Cedars and The Chariot. However, Shipman Catering also provides full catering off-premise services to meet the needs of all clients.

Shipman Catering provides a realm of event options including on-site ceremonies and wedding receptions, cocktail parties, birthday and anniversary parties, school functions, family and class reunions. They also offer a comfortable atmosphere for memorial services and celebrations of life.  The central location of both The Cedars and The Chariot affords an ideal venue for political and/or business conferences. Perfect for any occasion - Shipman Catering exceeds expectations.

The Cedars was built in 1908. The Shipman family acquired it in 1976 and refurbished it into a private catering house. The old antebellum home has an ambience of class and sophistication yet inspires southern tradition with the warmth of the tranquil south. The house and grounds are spacious enough to accomodate large numbers of guests but can be enchanting enough for intimate gatherings.

The Chariot is a banquet hall that serves the community as a landmark for private breakfasts, luncheons, and dinners. Business meetings, corporate functions, family gatherings, and dances can also be held here. It has ample space for dancing, a stage for dj's, bands or business presentations with the ability to handle all your office suite needs.

Nothing too big, nothing too small... with a gamete of menu options from elegant lobster dinners to good ole fashioned southern pig pickins, let Shipman Catering host your next event!
