Experiences to Remember. At Food For Thought Catering Group, we provide the means behind the moment so you can focus on experiencing the magic of the moment. We help make it special, make it rich, make it right — so all you have to do is live in it, love in it, laugh in it, shine in it. So you can be in the moment. Our success is rooted in personal relationships: the relationship between you and our consultants, who work tirelessly to bring your vision to life; the relationships among our team of culinarians and wait staff, who live to delight and serve; and the relationships we maintain with venue partners throughout the Chicagoland area, who help us set the perfect scene.

Food For Thought Catering Group partners with nearly 100 venues — from world-class cultural institutions like the Adler Planetarium, Field Museum and and Chicago History Museum ideal for large-scale events, to our exclusive venues 19 East and School of the Art Institute Ballroom (SAIC) and the historic homes and unique non-traditional perfect for intimate gatherings. We take the stress out of the equation so you can focus on what matters most: connecting with people and building your business..
