We have access to some of the most sought after picnic venues in Illinois and will work closely with you to choose the perfect location, design a delicious menu, and plan entertainment and activities based on the style and theme of your picnic.

Our menus are designed with quality and value in mind. All side dishes and desserts are made in our kitchen, while entrees are cooked to order on a charcoal grill throughout your event for maximum flavor and enjoyment.

PICNIC FAQ

DO YOU OFFER A VARIETY OF FOOD OPTIONS?

Absolutely. As a catering company, we always put food first. We offer a variety of different menus for you to choose from, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free items. Consult your Event Coordinator if you require specialty dishes for those with nut allergies or other dietary restrictions.

DO YOU EVER RUN OUT OF FOOD?

Never. With over 30 years of experience, we know how to design menus and portions to ensure that this never happens. With thousands of events under our belt, this is something we have mastered — no need to worry!

DO YOU FOLLOW FOOD SAFETY STANDARDS?

At all times. All of our employees are ServSafe certified. We also have refrigerated vehicles and ice packed coolers to keep food safe until it’s time to throw it on the grill.

WILL WE NEED SPECIAL PERMITS?

Depends. When discussing venues, our staff will let you know if any permits are required. If they are, we’ll gladly coordinate them for you.

DO YOU OFFER FAMILY-FRIENDLY ACTIVITIES?

We do. We work with a variety of vendors to provide a comprehensive list of family-friendly rentals that are fun and safe for guests of all ages.

ARE YOU FULLY INSURED?

Yes. Our function directors and managers are summer festival certified annually by the City of Chicago. We also have a full liquor license and insurance, and all of our bartenders are Basset trained and licensed by the state of Illinois.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?

Weather can be unpredictable at times, depending on the time of year. That’s why we always have a back-up plan in place. We can absolutely provide large tents if needed to cover the entire picnic area. Best to consult your Event Coordinator to discuss the likelihood of rain during your event and our different options for handling it.
