ANTWERP – Grant’s Catering has made an adjustment in their catering venue. On Friday, August 28, Grant’s Catering will introduce the Grant’s Catering and Smokin’ Wheels BBQ trailer. It will make its debut in a grand opening event in downtown Antwerp. The newly finished, dual axel travel kitchen, will serve up brisket, ribs, chicken & more for lunch from 11am-1pm and dinner from 5pm-7pm that evening. The trailer will be located that evening in front of the historic FORD Garage on Main Street.
Due to mandated social distancing requirements and regulated gathering numbers of patrons, Grant’s existing catering business, both at their Antwerp building facility and reception events all around the area, were severely downsized or many even worse, cancelled. As the mandates wore on through May, June and July, owner Brandon Grant knew that their business must modify and adjust or it would basically just dry up.
Closely following the food industry trends, Brandon knew that food trailers were becoming all the rage. Taking a chance, the Grant’s have designed and invested in a trailer that can go where the events are, or make their own to possibly help save the Grant’s catering business. Knowing of some existing food trailer venues already, Brandon hopes to test the waters with his new trailer at this Antwerp kick-off event. They would like to work with Antwerp and surrounding
communities in developing some additional events that might allow social distancing, food and fun, especially on Friday evenings since attendance at football games will now be limited.
