About Us

Lunch Plate at Cafe

Driven by a similar passion for food and entertaining, founders Tony Franco and Matthew Macon, launched Food Experience in 2007. We create custom menus for Weddings, Rehearsal Dinners, Corporate Events, and for Any Event that needs Celebrating! Food Experience also brings our scratch-made and locally focused food to Perspective Cafe on the rooftop of the newly renovated Asheville Art Museum. At Perspective Cafe, we offer a wide variety of house-made daily specials, sandwiches, soups, salads and sweets, as well as a selection of local beers, wine, and cocktails.
