After using the prep kitchen, it is essential for the catering company to ensure thorough cleanliness. This includes cleaning and putting away all dishes, sanitizing and wiping down countertops, and removing all trash from the venue and disposing of it in the dumpsters. By following these steps, the kitchen will be left in a pristine condition for the next user. For any further inquiries or assistance, feel free to contact Jeff, the owner, at 701-220-1994. Keeping the prep kitchen clean not only maintains hygiene standards but also contributes to a professional and organized working environment. Thank you for your attention to these details.

Prep Kitchen / Catering

What facilities are available for our caterer to use?

We have a sizable prep kitchen available for your approved caterers use that includes a commercial refrigerator, a warming rack; ice machine; and several stainless steel prep tables. Our kitchen is not a full service kitchen so caters must cook the food off site in their own permitted kitchen, and use our prep kitchen for final plating (which is a common practice for catering companies).

Can I choose any caterer/vendor?

All food items must be prepared and served by an approved, commercially licensed, and insured caterer. While we do not have preferred or recommended vendors, we do have a list of vendors that have previously been approved to work at Prairie Meadows that will provide you with a great starting place to begin planning your day and choosing your vendors. As long as they meet our requirements, we will be happy to approve them for you. All businesses/vendors that work on the Prairie Meadows property are required to be licensed and insured, and must be pre-approved by Prairie Meadows Staff

Can we bring food from home or have a friend/family member prepare food for my event?

For safety reasons, all food items (including desserts) must be prepared and served by an approved, licensed, and insured caterer.  Caterers and food service providers/servers have been trained and certified in food service guidelines, including the proper temperature that specific foods must be served at, as well as how long certain foods can remain out. This requirement is set with the safety of your guests in mind, and ensures that someone is responsible for taking the appropriate steps to minimize potential risks at your event.

All other questions please contact us.
