Welcome to The Rodeo Wagon, Madison’s very own rodeo-themed catering company. Locally owned by Kay-Tee Olds, The Rodeo Wagon offers delicious fare inspired by The South. Getting its start as a food cart on Capitol Square in 2016, Rodeo Wagon has grown into a full-service catering company after we found our passion in the world of catering events. We built out larger scale service options as we adapted to the experience needed for large events and catered experiencesWe especially enjoy making it an easy process for our clients and take pride in serving savory dishes that create memorable experiences for the guest.

Our year-round catering services include buffet-style meals or grab-n-go fares for weddings, conferences, college groups, and anything in between. We are fully equipped to cater to indoor and outdoor events. For outdoor events, outdoor service can be counter-service from a tent in front of a branded van or trailer, buffet setup, or food stations. Food grazing stations are a hot trend right now – ask us about them!

You may also see our event tent at various festivals during the summer.

We constantly update our menu to keep things fresh and interesting for our clients and custom our offerings to meet individual budgeting, dietary and thematic needs! Check out the Menu page for new specials!

Send us a message to learn more about how we can turn up the flavor at your next event, or look for us around Madison to see what’s cookin’, good lookin’!


  • The Rodeo Wagon experience was beyond wonderful. The team who came and set up was so thoughtful and organized. The food was some of the best I’ve ever had and the fun presentation and whole experience provided by this awesome group exceeded my expectations. I’m so grateful I met Kay-tee and her husband. They are a dream team!!! I hope to have them back again. Thank you!!

  • Rodeo Wagon drove an hour all the way out to our little class reunion and did a great job of setting up and serving us without any problems. Great customer service and easy to work with. Oh, and the food was good too! Would recommend for events. Thanks, guys!

  • Reserved food at Rodeo Wagon during the busiest night of Concerts on the Square for an corporate event. The team did an awesome job to make sure that everyone who attended had enough food and was taken care of. The food was wonderful. Shredded beef, brats, pasta salad, beans, jambalaya. They even had a nice selection of condiments. If you are thinking of catering or for personal choice, I wouldn’t hesitate. Thanks again, it was delicious!
