Take-out Catering 

Most brides and other event planners assume they need a full-service caterer that delivers all the bells and whistles as well as the food.   A traditionally catered event often takes the biggest bite out of your budget.  That’s why today’s savvy planners are choosing a wonderful alternative…take-out catering. 
Hello, my name is Debbie Leland, the co-owner of The Prairie Gypsies.  We began the catering and take-out side of our business back in 1996 working out of a tea room.  Business just kept growing so that by 1999, my co-owner, B. J. White and I decided to move to a larger facility with a commercial kitchen.   

  The Prairie Gypsies offers an exciting and delicious alternative for those who appreciate the convenience of a take-out meal, whether it’s for dinner for one, a private dinner party at home or even a much larger event, such as a wedding reception or corporate function.  Although we do offer full-service catering, our take-out business has certainly become popular, especially in these economic times which can limit an event budget.   The good news is that with The Prairie Gypsies on your side, your take-out catered food can be just as impressive. 

Our party platters are as delicious as they are lovely.  Choose from a variety of options to suit your occasion, including hot and cold appetizers, vegetable, cheese, meat and fruit.  We also offer casseroles, soups, sandwiches and some special requests. 

We serve up daily entrees to go with a number of side dishes available in our fresh case.  Many of our offerings are also available frozen for added convenience.  Oh….and don’t forget about our hot and delicious pizzas on Tuesdays!  Our desserts trays usually include our famous brownies which come in four varieties.  And, a selection of home-made pies, cakes and cookies are also available. 

At The Prairie Gypsies, we grow some of our own vegetables and herbs for that fresh from the garden taste.  We make our own pesto sauce, four herbal jellies and our famous Red Hot Lovers Pepper Jelly and Prairie Fire.  Plus, we bottle our own dressings, Parmesan Gypsy and Cherry B Gypsy (the “B” stands for balsamic).   We also make three of our own mustards, two fruit butters and pear-pecan jam.

Looking for an extremely tasteful gift idea?   At The Prairie Gypsies, we’ll create a distinctive gift basket or gift set with our gourmet condiments, brownies or cookies, our own snack mixes and seasoned pecans or other choices.   Just make your selections in the store or on our website and we’ll ship anywhere – an especially convenient, thoughtful (and last minute) gift idea for the holidays! 


So, if there’s an upcoming event in your future, or if you’d just like a fabulous meal to-go that’s way beyond fast food, call The Prairie Gypsies at 405-525-3013 or visit our website at

Then, when everyone raves about your meal, you can share your take-out secret…or if you prefer…just tell them it was “left by gypsies.”
