About Us

Chris Cakes is the original pancake catering company that flips flapjacks... by the millions! Developed in Pocahontas, Iowa in the late 1960's, we use a custom designed grill and dispensing unit that allows us to feed large and small groups extremely fast and efficiently. Add a dose of humor and some fancy pancake flipping and you have a one-of-a-kind event that people just love to watch while they enjoy our delicious pancakes!

You can fill out our online request form, or call (316-516-7783) or fax (316-776-9121) your request to have us perform at your next event. All messages and requests will be answered "As Fast As A Flapjack Flipper Can Flip Her Flapjacks"! Chris Cakes will cater any event including fundraisers, open houses, special events, benefits, grand openings... the list is endless! We use our own brand of pancake mix that was developed especially for Chris Cakes. Only the finest ingredients go into our recipe. Also, we will make our pancake mix available to your group if you would like to sell some at your pancake feed to make extra money. Since we are considered a wholesale vender, we are designed to help you and your group put on your pancake feed. We will provide all the equipment and food that you will need. Your group gets involved by helping with the setup, serving and light cleanup at the end of the feed.

By using your group for some of the manpower, Chris Cakes can offer you an extremely nutritious meal at a very low cost. In fact, we know of no other caterer that will offer the services and food that we offer for anywhere near the same price! The first week of the month PRIOR to your event taking place, you will receive a confirmation sheet highlighting the details as to what to expect from Chris Cakes and what we will need from your group. This helps both parties to see that everything will run as smoothly as possible.

Don't forget that every Chris Cakes function includes all the pancakes you can eat! Do you want to try for the record? It stands at 72 pancakes right now!

Fundraising Ideas

Here are some thoughts on how you can enhance and/or increase your profits at a Chris Cakes fundraiser. (Hint: The more people that you have involved with your event, the more parents, relatives and friends are going to attend!)

These are just a few ideas I have collected over the years. If you have any other good ideas that work for you, let me know! Good luck!
