The History Of Acorn Farms
Wizard Catering started in business on September 15,
1985 by catering a small Anniversary Dinner for a cousin of our owner.
The past years each have shown improved sales. Our steady growth has
been made possible by many loyal clients through these years.
1985 to 1986
We shared kitchen space with a small deli in Mount Joy.
Holiday parties and corporate picnics were the most frequent types of
1986 to 1988
Still a part time business, but growing quickly, the
business was moved to its own small leased quarters near Marietta. Advertising
was started in Yellow Pages directories, and a staff of on call waiters
was developed. Wedding Receptions, holiday parties and picnics were
1989 to 1996
The search for expanded space landed Wizard Catering
in Elizabethtown with 1200 square feet of space beside Nolt's Fine Seafood.
The business became full time for the owner and by 1993 five other persons
were employed full time. This period also saw the development of corporate
catering. Cool Creek Country Club contracted us for exclusive use of
their Ballroom facility in 1990. In 1995 we began our search for a new
location that could offer banquet space. The staff that Wizard now employed
were very cramped at the Elizabethtown site.
1996 to 2002
The lengthy search yielded an existing building that
had been a restaurant and dairy store previously (just outside Mount
Joy near route 283). After extensive renovations, Acorn Farms Reception
and Conference Center was opened in November of 1996. The facility features
three banquet rooms seating up to 150 guests. Our facility also contains
a large inspected production kitchen with extensive storage space for
food, tables, chairs, linens, audio/visual equipment, china, flatware
2002 to 2003
An addition was built to expand our Ballroom at Acorn
Farms. It was completed on April 1 to accommodate 225 guests (up from
the previous 150). In addition, the decor of the room was improved with
a higher ceiling, elegant wall coverings and a built in dance floor.
2003 to 2012
Outdoor facilities including a wedding ceremony site
and an area for outdoor dining and tents was built in the rear area
of Acorn Farms. An additional 48 parking spaces were also added
2012 to 2015
Celebrated 30th anniversary in business. Lobby and dining
rooms renovated with new flooring and carpet. Our BBQ Division was renamed
as Acorn Farms Authentic Barb-B-Que and BBQ Thursday was offered seasonally.
2015 to 2017
Pond and Waterfalls added to outdoor gardens
