Who Are We?

Roadside Chive is a full service catering and event planning company, located in the historic American Silk Mills Inc. facility and warehouse on Madison Road in Orange, Virginia. While owned by Currey Fountain, Roadside Chive flourishes because of the efforts of her team of hard working culinary and service professionals.

During WWII, American Silk Mills became the nation’s largest producer of spun raw Chinese silk for parachutes - helping the town of Orange survive the Great Depression. The American Silk Mill facility continues to bring success to the small town of Orange. The 6 acre site of warehouse style brick buildings is now home to an eclectic mix of businesses that are independently owned by local residents and entrepreneurs with their eyes to the future. The feel of the Roadside Chive kitchen and office is a fun mix of urban, industrial, modern, rustic and small-town-quaint. It’s a nice place to dream and create.

Our heart and soul has always been with the food we create and the personal attention we provide. We focus on the tiny particulars that make your event intimate and special - and the major logistics that make your event successful and worry free. From delivered boxed lunches and business meals to beautifully choreographed weddings and galas, we provide quality services at the most reasonable cost with a high attention to detail. We even offer Partial and Day Of Event Planning Services to help make the months, or just weeks, before your event smooth and stress-free. Our staff is professional, honest and fun.

Please allow our sample menus to serve as an inspiration. We will be happy to create a custom menu and event plan for your specific occasion.

As always, we look forward to your business and to your friendship!
