About us

IT STARTED AS A HOBBY!

When Jerry and Margie Sweeting built a hog cooker 30 years ago, their intentions were to roast an occassional hog for gatherings of friends and family. Their “hobby” grew, with Jerry roasting the meat and Margie in charge of side dishes. It was when they were asked to do the cooking for a wedding reception that they decided to turn professional.

Word of the Sweetings culinary expertise spread and they were asked to cater a company picnic for 800 in Iowa City. They haven’t stopped cooking since. They regularly provide meals for several factories and business in the Iowa City area as well as at the University of Iowa home games. In addition to corporate and sporting events, the Sweetings provide the meals for funerals, graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions and, of course, wedding receptions.
