Booking an Event

When you're ready to book your catering event, please submit a catering contract.  This document provides us with all of the information we will need to service the event and complete the billing process. Please consider the following in planning your event:

  • We require two weeks advance notice for any catering event.
  • You will need to provide a preliminary estimate of attendance when booking your event.  We will use this number to order sufficient product to service the event.
  • At least 2 business days prior to the event, we will need a guarantee of the attendance number for the event.  We will use this number when we actually prepare food for the event.
  • We prepare enough food to cover a small overage in attendance in case a few extra people attend the event.  Please note that we will not have sufficient food to cover large increases in attendance over the guarantee amount.
  • You will be billed for the guarantee or the actual number of people who are served at your event, whichever is greater.
