CATERING NOTE- At this time we are not offering individual tastings. We are a 100% mobile catering and concession company, we do not have a restaurant that we work out of, and this allows us to keep our prices as reasonable as possible. Up to this point we have relied only on word of mouth and personal references to book our catering events.

We do host an open house-style tasting in the spring and again in the fall for those wishing to book or those who have booked a date, or are interested in booking dates further out. Details will follow.

About Us

Dean's Concessions started in 2005 as a mobile food concession service. We have had food stands at many festivals, fairs, and events around the Central New York area for years. Our mobile concessions are at the heart of our business. We gradually began catering food at parties for family members and friends. Then guests started asking for our business card and we have been catering ever since. We don't advertise in media, we don't have a restaurant, we don't have full-time employees; that means that we don't have to charge you an outrageous price for catering. Our prices are reasonable and we aim to keep it that way! We want you to know that we are able to customize a menu to fit your desires for your special event. Don't see something on the menu? Just ask us. Want to mix and match menu items? Just ask us.
