For more than 23 years, Guy Thomson led Proof of the Pudding through a period of growth and development that has resulted in Proof’s current position as Atlanta’s premier “Upscale Foodservice Management” company. As the managing partner, Thomson began his tenure when Proof was a small boutique caterer with just one exclusive contract, The Carter Presidential Center. Today, Proof had become a more varied, full service food management company specializing in off premise catering; exclusive contracts in business, convention, sports, concert, and resort venues; an airport kiosk food concept; and a Gourmet to Go division that provides creative culinary products to go.
Thomson is also the owner of Atlanta’s oldest restaurant, Pittypat’s Porch, an authentic, southern-themed 300 seat restaurant located in the heart of downtown Atlanta.
Prior to joining Proof of the Pudding, Thomson served as the senior vice president of the Georgia Hospitality and Travel Association (GHTA), the trade association representing Georgia’s food service, lodging and travel industries and related businesses. Thomson moved to Atlanta in 1977 as general manager for Victoria Station Restaurants, a California-based specialty restaurant chain.
Guy is an avid golfer and an active Member of the Ansley Golf Club. He and his wife, Deb, a successful retail executive, live in the East Cobb section of Marietta GA. They have two grown children, and spend as much time as they can at their beach home at Fripp Island, South Carolina.
