Your Local Catering Company

We believe that the secret to great food starts with great ingredients. We use only the freshest locally-sourced ingredients and create each menu 100% customized to your taste, paying close attention to every detail. One of our company’s core values is “to serve and support a local experience.” When you support Pan & Cake, you are supporting much more than one local business. Wherever possible, we purchase locally grown produce from farmers right here in the Midwest, and love collaborating with other local vendors to make your event something you, and your community, will be proud of.

Woman-Owned, Chef-Led

We are proud to be a woman-owned and chef-led catering company. Our strategy is a small crew that brings a big passion. Our team brings a diverse knowledge of the culinary industry that sets a strong foundation for the success of all of our events. We begin by working together to create a custom menu that perfectly matches your vision. From there, we go to work to find the freshest locally-sourced ingredients that are the heart of our dishes. The result is an event that your guests will be talking about long after the last course is served.

“Pan & Cake Catering just did our wedding this past Saturday. Everything was PERFECTION! Guests kept telling us it was hands down the best food they have EVER had at a wedding. Shawnae, Josie, and crew are the sweetest, most professional, hardest working crew ever. The price was incredibly reasonable especially when you consider how delicious everything was and the impeccable service. Highly recommend them and I cannot wait to have a reason to hire them again just to have the delicious food again!”
