Dagar's Catering was founded in 1952 in Austin, Texas by the late Freddie Dagar. Freddie set out to create a business that would allow him to earn a living while having fun and exploring his love for food. Beginning with very humble roots, Freddie's offerings amounted to barbecue, barbecue, and more barbecue! The young businessman soon earned a reputation for providing the finest tasting food backed by a devoted family whose customer service and attention to detail were second-to-none in Central Texas.
Freddie's son, Albert, gradually took the helm of the company to help expand Dagar's menu offerings to meet the needs of an ever growing list of long-time patrons. A graduate of The University of Texas at Austin and pharmacist by trade, Albert saw catering as a way to keep connected with his loved ones. Keeping with this family business in the family, Albert's daughter Kathryn, a graduate of Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State), eventually took a position by her father's side and together they continued to further expand the scope and services of the company. Under their management, Dagar's became known as the go-to caterer for numerous renowned associations, corporations, public figures, and universities.
After Albert's passing in May of 2012, Kathryn fully took over the reins of the company and has continued to help maintain its status as one of Austin's most trusted and well-regarded names in catering. Dagar's presently offers a cuisine-spanning menu for events of all specifications and sizes, and stills proudly boasts quality service and top-notch food as an Central Texas staple. Though we continue to grow in scope, we at Dagar's Catering will forever be proud of our roots in "Old Austin" and the community that has supported our family-owned company for decades.
