Eddie Deen grew up on a working ranch in Wills Point, Texas. From an early age, he learned the value of hard work, determination, and relationships. A 1979 graduate of Texas A & M University, Eddie opened his first restaurant on the shores of Lake Tawakoni in 1980. In 1994, he purchased the land and buildings for the “commissary” in Terrell, Texas which is now the main staging area for Eddie Deen & Company Catering. In 1996, Eddie Deen’s Ranch in Downtown Dallas was created in the old Malouf dress factory just south of the Dallas Convention Center. In December of 2008, Eddie’s newest development Edison’s Dallas opened which expands the services and relationships to a growing, diverse, client base.
