From the small towns of Supino and Stiffe Italy, Arnaldo and Elda Fracassa brought the aroma and great flavor of Italian cuisine to the big city of Dearborn Michigan. They began cooking primarily Italian food in the basement of their east Dearborn home for family gatherings. Word spread quickly and before long neighbors began to ask Arnaldo and Elda to cook for their family events. Soon the Fracassa’s were not only catering for their neighbors but local church functions as well. As time went on, larger groups began requesting the Fracassa’s services and expertise. The time arrived when the family decided to take their catering business to the next level. In 1987 the headquarters were moved to Riverview, Michigan thus Arnaldo’s Banquet Center was born. Since then the business has grown into one of the most well known banquet centers in southeastern Michigan. The services provided range from elaborate elegant weddings to casual corporate luncheons.
