Kauffman's BBQ Chicken Inc.

A chance meeting and $100. So begins the story of Kauffman’s BBQ Chicken in 1955. It was Marvin Kauffman who frequented the local farmers markets to sell his fresh, straight-from-the-farm poultry. As fate would have it, Marvin was intrigued by a secret BBQ chicken recipe owned by a gentleman he met at market. So intrigued with this recipe, Marvin paid the gentleman $100 for it and, as they say, the rest is history. While we can’t share the recipe with you, we can share with you the value of $100 in 1955!

Today, Kauffman’s BBQ Chicken holds over 300 catering and fundraising events each year. We are well-known in the area for cooking a chicken that everyone loves and providing organizations with successful fundraisers. We aim to provide a quality product that exceeds expectations without a high price tag.

We look forward to seeing you at a Kauffman’s BBQ Chicken event or working with you and your organization on your next fundraiser!

There are many reasons Kauffman’s Chicken BBQ has become synonymous with successful fundraising. Since 1958, we have fine-tuned the fundraising process to keep it easy for group leaders and profitable for organizations, ensuring a great event every time. And then there’s the chicken. The chicken that’s secretly seasoned, that cooks slowly for hours, and served juicy and hot. And while Kauffman fans are supporting their favorite organization, they also know that lunch just got easier or someone’s getting a night off from dinner duty. Kauffman’s BBQ Chicken and your organization. The perfect match!   Click: Your Guide to a Successful Fundraising Event
