Chicago Caterer

Hosting a big event at a local venue? Throwing a small party at your home or office? Whether your guest count is 10 people or 100 or more people, catering can be a great way to ensure your event runs smoothly and without any stress!

Food For Thought is the Chicago caterer you should choose for your special occasion. We have the knowledge, skills and resources to make every moment magical for you and all in attendance.

Why is food so important for your event?

Meals are a time for people to gather and share stories and laughs. No matter the event, the meal and dining experience will likely be one of the most memorable, for better or for worse! Providing high quality, flavorful food is something you should strive for, whether hosting family members, business associates, or anyone else. Catering your meal means you get to enjoy your event just like the attendees, and no one will go home hungry! Give a good impression and give your guests an amazing experience.

Why Food For Thought?

We didn’t come up with our name out of nowhere; we truly stick to the mission of putting thought into the food we serve and how we serve it. A representative from Food For Thought will meet with you well in advance to nail down the details of your event and your vision. We can customize to meet virtually any need, from food restrictions and allergies to a small serving space. We can also customize the type of food, whether you want international cuisine, something more basic for kids, or sharable options for a buffet-type party! Sharing a meal is a personal experience, and we will put all our effort into making sure of that for your occasion.

We also partner with nearly 100 Chicagoland venues and are familiar with all kinds of event and dining spaces, from museums to our own 19 East location. By working with us, you can rest assured you have chosen one of the best Chicago caterers around.
