Welcome to Fat Cat!
Like every Fat Cat, we believe in the good things in life: long naps, good meals and a delectable ball of catnip to chase after. That’s right, we think our customers can have it all! So while you may not find catnip on our menu, we do offer up something for everyone.
Our hand-tossed pizzas are made fresh to order and baked crisp in our brick oven. All of our menu items are homemade from fresh ingredients, purchased locally whenever possible. Everything from cocktails to croutons are made by hand, right here in our kitchen.
Welcome to the Family
Phil Wood, Manager
Phil was born in Fairbanks, Alaska and raised in the North Pole area with his four brothers and one sister. He can usually be found in his shop working on trucks or snowmachines. Phil likes to make them go fast. With four children of his own, and four grandchildren cheering him on, things can get pretty exciting!
As a young adult, Phil worked for various propane companies in Fairbanks. In 1994, he started Hometown Propane. After successfully selling in 2001, he quickly recognized the lack of local in the fuel industry. So, he started The Fuel Company in 2005. Still thriving, he jumped on board as a Manager, with his son, for Propane Alaska, wanting to bring local back to propane!
