Our Story





We are a husband and wife team that, together, have over 35 years of experience bartending and working in the service industry.  We moved to North Carolina in 2015 with a dream to open our own business and give our clients the absolute best experience possible.  Our dream became reality when we started Thirsty Buffalo Beverage Catering in 2019.

The bar is an important detail with HUGE potential but, unfortunately, it is often overlooked.  We are here to make sure that your bar impresses your guests and makes your event even more memorable by providing outstanding service, delicious cocktails, and impressive ambience.

 We cannot wait to work with you!
