Friendor Friday Spotlight: Tom and Lin Catering


We are fortunate to have an amazing tribe of vendors that we work with to create dream weddings for our clients.  Every other Friday we will spotlight one of our vendor friends, or friendors.  These amazing artists are in the trenches with us.  They battle deadlines, work in the blaring sun, walk an average of ten miles on event days and more.  We do this because we all love making people’s dreams come true.  When you need of a photographer, caterer, florist, planner, venue, videographer, etc. we hope you will entrust one of our amazing friendors.  We think they are rather spectacular!

What is your name and the name of your business? Lin Baumbach, Tom and Lin Catering

How long have you been in business? We opened as a catering company in February 2013. However, we both have extensive time in the food industry.

What is your favorite part of your job? I LOVE building client relationships. We get to know a couple, what they like, what their vision is and what is most important to them about the food at their wedding and then create a menu that is tailored to represent each of those aspects!


“Who Doesn’t Love LOVE?”

What is your favorite par of the wedding industry? I absolutely LOVE…well, love. We want each and every guest to feel like they’re the guest of honor. And with that, we want the happy couple to KNOW that TLC went into their meal!


What is your favorite memory being in business? My favorite memory is when a Mother of the Bride went up to chef Tom, who happens to be my husband of 10 years, and said “WOW, you are a DELICIOUS chef!” I couldn’t stop giggling!


Is there anything new or on the horizon for you? We are honored to partner with new venues as preferred caterers. Keep an eye out on social media for announcements-maybe you’ll be able to stop by for a cup of TLC Cold Brew Coffee when you’re in Downtown Phoenix in the near future!
