We have many graduation specials to choose from and we are committed to providing the best value for graduation catering in Chicago. Italian sausage, Italian beef, fried chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, and mostaccioli are just some the mouth-watering menu items available to choose from. We typically recommend a buffet style menu because it allows for flexibility and guests love it. Buffet graduation catering allows your friends and family to eat when they would like and allows everyone to spend time interacting and having fun.

Expecting A Large Crowd?

If you’re expecting a large gathering for your graduation party, you may want to consider a spread which consists of several finger foods or items which can be picked up and eaten in a couple of bites.

With larger crowds and only one buffet, you may risk the food & beverage area getting overcrowded. Planning for many people and having designated areas throughout your home or party area with quick eats will help keep the crowd spread evenly and able to mingle easily. Be sure you are using smaller plates, which will make each serving look larger. We also recommend having an area where you can showcase photos of the graduate and accomplishments. And finally, don’t forget to include your deck or patio area if weather permits!

Going Outdoors?

Since most graduations are at the beginning of summer, how about a beautiful outdoor graduation catering event? Your backyard or an outside venue is a no-brainer for us to cater to.
