Amos Deans joined the Business Partnership because they want to connect with their community and bring people together with real, delicious food. 


Amos Deans was founded in 1967 by Amos Deans himself, on the basis of local food, Iowa tradition, and Czech culture. The legacy of Deans’ cooking, including his famous ham, is carried on by Michael Lipcamon and Lee Millikan.

Amos Deans is a scratch kitchen with an acre garden on-site. They try to source as many ingredients as possible from local farms. They offer a variety of catering services, including corporate events, weddings, graduation parties, and more. They even have a food truck, which can be found at local events in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. 

“We have a true passion for great food and great service,” Michael said.  “We don’t take short-cuts and work hard to make sure we know exactly where your food is coming from (probably our garden) and to treat our food and customers with respect.” Catering services can be booked through email or through their website.
