You know the expression: "it's in the genes"? Well, that's how Yum Yums Catering began...generations ago...
Judd grew up in a home full of food- authentic mexican recipes from generations past, from his grandmother "Big Mary", who owned a restaurant in Downtown Dallas back in the 1960's, whose regular patrons were said to be Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald! Big Mary went on to serve her grandchildren daily through those same authentic recipes, and Judd watched and helped in the kitchen as a childhood pastime. He got his first job in a grocery store, and then on to making pizzas, and eventually, catered for many years with his childhood best friend's parents' catering company.
Tracy also grew up surrounded by food and serving. Her mother cooked every holiday meal, in full, for their very large family. The motto was "There's plenty for everyone!", and there always was! Tracy saw the value of food, and its power to draw people together in community. As she watched and helped cook, Tracy took her mother's traditional recipes, and adapted them to her own tastes, with her flair for FUN. She has been gifted with the unique ability to taste each ingredient in a dish, and then reverse engineer it for her audience! She made it her goal, at every occasion, to make sure no one left hungry.
Tracy began her working career in the food service industry as well, and learned how to take superior care of those she served. She went on to meet and marry Judd, and began catering with Judd's family friends also!
They served family parties and celebrations of all sizes, for more than 20 years.
When the time came for them to spread their wings and fly, the said "YES!" to entrepreneurship, and launched their own catering company. In 2011, YumYums Catering was born.
Since that time, they have served the DFW Metroplex-from weddings to corporate parties...to Dallas Cowboy Tailgate parties and absolutely anything in between, of ANY size, they have worked tirelessly to ensure every guest leaves their presence full and satisfied.
And in 2018, they said "YES" to an even bigger dream: To open a catering space where they could host cooking classes for public and private events! They LOVE to serve, to fill, and most of all, to have FUN while doing it!
At YumYums, you are ALWAYS welcome! And bring your friends!
Tracy and Judd will take GREAT care of you!
