The Best Catering Service in Chicago

One of the reasons we love Chicago is that, in our city, your reputation is earned. You have to put in the work to be successful, and it’s not easy.

Especially for as long as we’ve been in business.

For 34 years we’ve been catering Chicago’s most important events, large and small.

It’s the reason we’re at the top of and Wedding Wire year after year.

It’s the reason we’ve never gotten less than a 5-star Google review.

Providing high-quality catering services for three decades isn’t easy, but it’s what we do.

We’ve earned the right to say we’re the best and if we’ve learned anything, it’s that Chicago deserves nothing less.

What Sets Us Apart

Our business has never just been about food.

It’s been about Chicago.

It’s been about people.

Our staff cares about our catering service customers like they’ve been friends for decades: helping them choose a theme, setting up tables, and selecting the best menu items for their special day.

It’s one of the reasons that Chicagoans, from large companies to individuals call us first every time. Just ask around.

And that’s our promise to you: to make your moment magical.

Let’s make some moments.

We are Moment Makers

You know who the best catering companies are by how many of their customers come back. You can tell even more by how many of their customers refer friends and associates.

Not who spends the most on ads or has the biggest billboards.

Our last customer is our best billboard. Their smile at the end of a perfectly catered event is our best advertisement.

From drop-of catering to a full-fledged catering service, our core values and lengthy track record have secured us a place at the top of corporate and residential caterers in Chicago.

Turning a meal at a standard event into a special moment is what we do, without exception. Learning what an event specifically needs and exceeding expectations is our forte.

We look forward to working with you.
