When original owner Judy Ivey agreed to cater that wedding reception in 1985, little did she know the legacy she was beginning. From their kitchen in southwest Shreveport, Tom and Judy Ivey set out on an adventure that has now touched the hearts and tummies of thousands. In 1996 the Iveys officially opened A Tasters Choice Catering. From the tiny kitchen in the back of Shreveport Shaver and Appliance, the small appliance repair shop owned by Tom Ivey, the couple began their journey. With a lot.. of prayer and little planning, the business began to grow. Judy was the head cook in charge and Tom offered his famous brisket. Word quickly began to spread to meet an obvious need in the Shreveport/Bossier community. With quality and customer satisfaction being the most important ingredients in every recipe, the slogan from the heart, not just the kitchen was added. Working together tirelessly, Tom and Judy were in awe of each new client and treasured the personal stories of how others learned about ATCC. With only a business number in the phone book, word of mouth proved to be their best advertisement. The first employee was added in 1998. Judy and her daughter, Dona Tyndall, had jokingly discussed the idea of working together. Only part time on the busy days was the initial conversation. Returning home from college, Dona and her husband, Trey, decided that this would work for them at the time. However, part time quickly turned into full time, and six years later The Iveys and The Tyndall's formed ATCC, LLC. Dona's son, Jack, accompanied her to work from the time he was five weeks old. Innumerable creative wedding cakes and delectable reception foods were accomplished in that tiny kitchen with the help of an ever changing variety of weekend staff across those years. In 2004, the adventure took a new turn and moved to Cross Lake to open Celebrations. Offering not only fabulous food, ATCC was able to provide a facility for clients to have events. In those five years, Celebrations had the privilege of hosting hundreds of weddings and receptions, anniversary celebrations, birthday parties, family reunions and on and on. Dona's daughter, Ashby, became an accomplished helper during those days even at a young age. Many sweet memories were made on the lake.
