Our Story

Known as one of the premier off-premises full-service caterers in Memphis, Just In Thyme Foods has established a reputation for exceptional food, creative presentations and superior service. In 1994, Chef-Proprietor Nancy Fisher started the company to help a ‘non-foodie’ friend out by preparing food for her husband’s business gatherings. The word got out, and  Just In Thyme Foods soon became a thriving part of the Memphis food scene.

Just in Thyme Foods met a growing demand in the area by providing high-quality catering services to friends and businesses in town — customers who desired exceptional food for Special Events and Weddings. She expanded the business to include a weekly Home Meal Replacement Program.  

Nancy soon developed a reputation for turning the high-end customer’s vision into reality.

In the fall of 2017, the company expanded its reach in Memphis by opening The Outback — a storefront located in the back of Pickering Boxwood (a stylish clothing store on Mendenhall Road), where customers can stop in and grab a meal to go. The Outback is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:-00 to 5:30 pm.

Overseeing the in-house kitchen and bakery, Nancy works with her grill-master husband, Chuck, who also manages sales and operations.  Additionally, they employ a talented team of sous chefs and food preparers who create an exceptional variety of hors d’oeuvres, entrees, side dishes and desserts. Just In Thyme Foods employs experienced, trustworthy and reliable servers and bartenders who contribute to your event’s success. Our outgoing staff at The Outback are ready to help you choose delicious meals to go, whether you’re looking for a quick bite at lunch or need to pick up dinner for the family.

Attuned to changing tastes and trends, Just In Thyme Foods offers new and innovative dishes along with more traditional, tried-and-true fare. All of our food is prepared from the freshest ingredients chosen from specialty purveyors around town. Whatever your catering needs, we have the imagination and expertise required to make your dream a reality.
