We generally travel up to 50 miles from our Wooden Paddle kitchen in Lemont, IL. Is your event a little bit, or a lot a bit, further away? Let’s talk anyway! We do make exceptions.
We’ve catered at, or are preferred vendors for, many different venues in the Chicagoland area, including: Warehouse:109, Firehouse Chicago, Imago Events, The BRIX On The Fox, Ovation, Greenhouse Loft, Blumen Gardens, Danada House, The Bridge, Storybook Gardens, Silver Fox, and more. Even if we are not on your venue’s preferred vendors list (yet!), there’s still a pretty good chance we’ll be able to cater your event. We’ve done it before, and gosh dang it! We’ll do it again. In addition, should you choose to forgo a venue and have your event at a private residence, we are happy to cater there as well.
At the very least, events need to be booked one month in advance, but the earlier, the better! We book on a first come, first served basis. For weekends, we generally book about one year out.
No problem! We’re glad to accommodate them. We have gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and vegetarian options!
All event staff- chefs, servers, bartenders, and event captains- are charged separately. How many chefs, servers, and bartenders we’ll bring depends on details like your guest count, menu, service style, and what your venue requires caterers to take care of on the big day! An event captain is needed for any wedding, any size event with food and bar, or any event with seventy-five (75) or more guests.
The oven is maneuvered by a tow vehicle, and one of our highly skilled, trailer-backer-uppers. (Mmm yes, ’tis their formal title.) So, wherever you’d like us to put the oven must be accessible by vehicle, and have a flat, dry area that’s at least 12′ long, and 8′ wide. We’ll also need another 12′ x 12′ space in front of the oven, for our pop-up kitchen.
We’re able to comfortably serve up to 250 people with the use of just one of our ovens. Far too popular to limit your guest list to only 250? Not a problem. In that case, we’d just bring a second oven.
You bet! First, come try the goods! At your tasting, you’ll get to sample most of what we serve, and get a better idea of what you’d like your menu to be. You’ll select four different signature pizzas, and then you can round out the rest of your menu with appetizers, salads, desserts, and drinks.
Yes! Your event minimum is dependent on the day and time of your event. It is the total for all food and beverages.
A twenty percent (20%) service charge covers on-site kitchen, bar, and rental set up and breakdown, wood for the oven, serving ware, disposable dinnerware, trash disposal, liquor licensing, and general liability insurance.
All we require is a thirty percent (30%) deposit and a signed contract. We accept payment via credit card, debit card, or check.
