Keane’s Wood-Fired Catering was founded in 2016 by husband and wife Padraic and Kaylyn Keane. Padraic grew up working in his parents village pub in Galway, Ireland and moved to the United States in 2015. Through some chance work opportunities he became fascinated with traditional southern barbecue and welded his first wood-fired smoker at the Steel Yard, in Providence.
Keane’s held their first catered event at Whalers Brewing in South Kingstown in 2016 and have since continued to build a reputation for exceptional food and service. In 2023 Keane’s purchased and renovated a catering facility on Warwick Ave, which now serves as the main production kitchen, office and customer reception.
Now supported by a detail oriented kitchen team led by Chef Esteban Gonzalez and a customer focused sales and events team led by Kym Gardner, Keane’s offers an array of award-winning catering services as well as a Friday night BBQ take-out in Warwick R.I.
Keane’s provides a unique catering experience and some of the best barbecue in the region to clients all over Southern New England. In addition to a commitment to quality, the Keane’s team subscribes to a drama-free work ethos that translates into stress-free event planning for our clients and memorable experiences for their guests.
We look forward to helping you make your next event legendary.
