In 1994, after working for five years in film production and three years in rock and roll catering, Heidi was hired by the newly opened United Center as a backstage catering consultant for their first two concerts: Frank Sinatra and Eric Clapton. Shortly after, she founded Big Delicious Planet with her sister, Ellen. Since then, Big Delicious Planet has proven that high-quality food, eye-catching presentations, and personalized service can be consistently delivered when you and the people you work with share a passion for creating one-of-a-kind meals and events. Our menus reflect our name, and include delicious food from all over the globe.
Our Many Green Initiatives Include:
• Composting all food scraps and biodegradable paper goods from our kitchen and Canteen. Much is recycled into our garden. The rest is picked up by a local composting service. • Donate all our used vegetable oil to a biodiesel service, which turns it into fuel for vehicles and glycerin for soap. • A local shelter picks up our excess food twice a week. • We've improved our water efficiency by making changes to our faucets. • Only use compostable disposable ware. • Harvest almost 4,000 pounds of our own organically grown vegetables and herbs from our urban farm in 2013. • Support farm-raised and ocean-friendly seafood. • Grow our own microgreens indoors. • We even have 2 beehives in our urban farm.
