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.
