Nelson's Corporate Catering & Event Planning is in the business of creating value. Value for you. Value for your guests. And most importantly, value for your entire organization.

In fact, Nelson's has been creating value since 1967. That's when Nelson Gongwer invented his patented Port-A-Pit® cooking unit that grills meat products over an open flame and systematically dips them into a special sauce - ensuring the same quality and consistency that made Nelson's a household name throughout Northern Indiana.

Now, millions of pounds of chicken, pork chops, and ribs later, Nelson's continues to expand its business across the nation. But we offer much more than enticing foods at excellent prices. At Nelson's, our service is equally as important as our products.

And we service big events, better than anyone else. Nelson's has provided the complete food service management for concert crowds of more than 35,000 patrons and all-you-can-eat company picnics for more than 8,000 employees. That's experience you can trust.

So let Nelson's professionals help you put together the perfect event, with a menu that will suit your taste...and your budget. And you your colleagues and guests thank you for selecting Nelson's great food and service, you'll smile because you know that you made the right choice...

And that's value! Read less

Nelson's worked with our dream wedding feast and our reality of a budget. Before we were even their clients Sheila at Nelson's was in constant contact with us! They went out of their way to make sure we were happy. I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for quality food and service for a price you can afford!

Nelson's has stepped up to every request and provided more than we could imagine. While my daughter's wedding is in 2015 and has yet to happen, I, the mother of the bride, have worked with this company for years. They are awesome! I highly recommend Nelson's to anyone needing catering or bar service.

I was having a laid back - low budget wedding and Nelson's was a great option. They were flexible and let me mix and match packages to get exactly what I wanted in a price I could afford. The food was awesome. Lots of our guests told us they loved the food, especially the pulled pork and then corn medley. The service was also great and the plates were cleared in a timely manner. This place is a great value for the service, delicious food, and great prices.

Nelson's was awesome! They are relatively new to our area as they have mainly focused on the Springfield area and towns around / near Peoria, but not Peoria itself. We worked closely with Ashley. She responded quickly via email or phone to all of our questions and concerns. We worked out small dramas the week of the wedding with no problems. Nelson's was also the **ONLY** Catering company we contacted who was willing to offer a military discount. They had the most impressive tasting as well; personalized folders, personalized table cards, free DVDs with pictures of past events and a one-on-one discussion with the caterer. I highly recommend Nelson's; great pricing, easy to work with and the food was fantastic! (Also, as a side note, they offer to let you pick up the leftovers from your event OR donate them to underprivileged children--WHO ELSE DOES THAT?!)

Nelson's was WONDERFUL! They worked with our tight budget and found a way to give us everything we wanted. We still have guests raving about the cheesy potatoes--and I agree, they were amazing!

Throughout our planning process, we maintained great communication with Kari and her staff to ensure that every detail was what we envisioned. The food was amazing and we even got to keep the leftovers to enjoy afterwards. Their staff on-site were very attentive and accommodating to our guests. We still receive compliments from guests now about the quality of service that we received on our wedding day.
