Graduations mark an important milestone in you and your child’s life. School is out, summer is back, and family & friends are ready to get together to support their grad. We also know it can be a very busy time to plan the right party. From announcements, party invitations & decorations to theme ideas, party favors, centerpiece ideas & more, we know there’s a lot. Whether it is grade school, high school, college, or graduate school, Corky’s Catering is here to provide exceptional graduation catering in Chicago. For several decades, we have been proven catering professionals for all types of events & we love to share our expertise on everything from food and drinks to layout, decor, and floral arrangements for your upcoming event in Chicagoland. We are confident we have the perfect graduation catering package for you.
We Can Deliver To Your Door
Family and friends will gather either inside your home, backyard, or at a venue of your choice and there is no need to spend time shopping and cooking for your graduation party. With our catering services, we can deliver food right to your door and allow you to enjoy the day!
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!
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.
If needed, we can recommend a variety of graduation catering venues across Chicagoland. Corky’s Catering is at your side to coordinate tables, tents, entertainment & everything you need to make the day perfect. From the budget and prep, to the food and drink, to the setup and décor, we have you covered.

... other than Thanksgiving dinners cooked by my mother and my wife, the food was the best.

We compared other companies and you offered the most for the best price. I love that the salads and tableware are included in the packages.
