Our Story


           The Moveable Feast is a collection of talented and dedicated individuals who have a passion for creating memorable events “one event at a time!”


         It starts with our owner Dan Huntsbarger, a 39-year veteran of the food service industry and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in New York. After refining his cooking skills at a number of great restaurants, Dan and his wife Carol opened their own restaurants. Both of their restaurants received high marks for creative food and great service.


          The catering division of Dan's company has been producing exceptional events since 1995. In 2004 the decision was made to focus all of our attention on catering. The goal was to bring our award winning food and service to every event no matter the size or location.

          In order to set our goals into action, we set out to build a team of passionate and detail-oriented leaders, many of whom had helped make our restaurants a success.
