The Plowboys team has been catering for private events for over a decade. Small parties grew to feeding large weddings, corporate events, and festivals. Catering has been our passion and lead to the Plowboys BBQ restaurants, but first and foremost we see ourselves as caterers. Logistical planning is key to a successful catering event. In fact, one of our largest events to day was serving 2800 people over three days at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
The heart of our catering operation is Plowboys co-owner, Audrey Johns, who is referred to as the "Catering Queen". Audrey has helped thousands of office managers, brides, and party planners tailor a menu specific for their vision and budget. Audrey's confident and reassuring style is often just what a young bride requires when managing all of the details for that special day. You can be assured that one of our owners is planning, often preparing and executing that catering.
Plowboys has catered events of all sizes across the four-state area.
Typical events include:
Owner & Director of Catering
Audrey has been helping to plan catering events since 2001. Prior to that, she spent 26 years in document publishing and software testing at Assurant.
When Audrey is not helping to feed large groups at special events she enjoys camping and traveling with her family.
Generous portion sizes, variety of side options, awesome barbeque (the tender burnt ends are our favorite!) and beyond excellent customer service are what set them apart. Blair and his team always take great care of us!...And today was no different. Thank you SO much for pulling together our order at the last minute! Once again, you've made us a very happy office.”
“Pork producers know good barbeque and the Plowboys BBQ never disappoints. We’ve had them provide lunch to thousands of our customers during the World Pork Expo for the last ten years and the quality of food and attention to detail has been exceptional. Customers tell us they go out of their way each year to eat Plowboys BBQ at our tent.””
