Harder Restaurant Group offers a unique variety of catering from our nine different independently owned franchise restaurant locations. We offer catering options from Dickeys Barbecue, and Rapid Fired Pizza. 


Patrick Harder started Dickeys Barbecue (Amelia, OH) in January of 2014. Patrick, with the help of Brett Jackson, has grown Dickeys catering by paying close attention to detail and conforming to their customers’ needs. The Harder Restaurant Group added Zoup Eatery (Norwood, OH) to the portfolio after visiting their headquarters in Michigan and seeing strong catering potential.

Harder Restaurant Group then added Guthries Golden Fried Chicken Fingers (Fairfield, OH) and Rapid Fired Pizza (Fairfield, OH) to the portfolio to further grow catering sales.

In 2019, four Rapid Fired Pizza's were added in Kroger stores, Corryville, Oakley, Mt. Orab, and Austin Landing.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic causing a large amount of the working population to work from home, The Harder Restaurant group decided to convert Zoup Eatery (Norwood, OH), who’s business relied heavily on catering, into a Dickeys Barbecue. The same move has also been made with Guthrie’s Chicken (Fairfield, OH). Currently the group is working to open both locations by the end of 2020/ early 2021. 

At Harder Restaurant Group Catering, we are focused on being a one-stop-shop for our catering customers’ needs. We pride ourselves on being on time and being accurate on every order. Understanding that mistakes can happen, we are committed to go above and beyond in correcting any mistakes.
