Blue Plate Catering
The Blue Plate team is deeply devoted to its Chicago roots and takes great pride in bringing exceptional food and service to clients. Considered Chicago’s caterer, Blue Plate has set the standard for catering in Chicago and has earned numerous awards and accolades for outstanding food, service, presentation, and successful business practices.
Blue Plate has catered many significant events throughout its 30-plus years. Most recently Blue Plate catered the 2014 Museum of Contemporary Art Gala for the David Bowie Exhibit, the IPW/Choose Chicago reception for 6,000 guests at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, and 2015 will mark the company’s 20th year as official caterer and sponsor of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
Blue Plate is building a new facility in the Fulton Market District and will be moving in early 2016 from a 10,000-square-foot facility to more than 50,000 square feet of space. The new facility will allow the company to increase production and expand into other complementary food service and hospitality businesses.
