Do you have a minimum number of guests needed to cater an event?

For full-service catering, we require a minimum of 25 guests. For delivery services, a minimum of 15 guests is required.

What type of events do you cater?

All kinds! We enjoy providing exceptional food and impeccable services for corporate, non-profit, social events, and weddings.

Do you offer tastings?

Private tastings can be arranged if you are unable to attend one of our complimentary Open House Tastings, which take place on a quarterly basis.

How much does it cost to cater an event?

Events really vary greatly depending on size, menu, service and many other specific event conditions. Give us a call today and let us know about what event you are planning and we would be glad to give you an idea on costs.

What is the best way to contact you with questions or place an order?

If you have any questions please call or e-mail us. We are available by phone Monday through Friday from 10am to 4pm, and in person by appointment.

How much notice do I need to give for a catering event?

Ideally, we would like at least a weeks’ notice for events. During particularly busy seasons, more notice may be required. In the case of an unanticipated event, such as a memorial reception, we try our best to accommodate last minute requests. Please keep in mind that we sometimes book up for a particular day and must stop accepting orders. We always recommend placing your order as soon as you decide to use us to cater your event.

What is the booking process?

After your inquiry has been received, a member from our team will contact you for specific information for your event. A custom proposal will then be prepared and sent to you as soon as possible. You are welcome to request revisions to the proposal to best fit your tastes and budget. Once you are pleased with your proposal, you may confirm your event with us by providing a signed copy of the proposal via email, fax, or mail and by providing a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the anticipated cost. Even after the proposal is signed, changes can always be made based on your needs.

When do I need to confirm the guest count?

At the time of your initial inquiry, we will ask for an anticipated guest count. About two days prior to the event, you will need to confirm the final minimum guest count. This confirmed count can be increased up until three days prior to the event.

Can I change my order once it has been placed?

Of course! Although we do require at least 30 days’ notice for any changes made such as menu adjustments, rentals, and staff needs. Let us know when submitting your order if you anticipate making any adjustments.

What methods of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards (VISA, AMEX, MasterCard, and Discover). A 4% convenience fee will be added to payments made by charge card.

Do you accept gratuities?

Of course! This is left to your discretion and overall satisfaction. Gratuities for service are graciously accepted for a job well done, but are never expected or required. Gratuities should be handled with your event supervisory the day of the event.

What is your cancellation policy?

Please let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel your event. The deposit is non-refundable, but can be transferred to another event date with a minimum of thirty days’ notice. Orders that are canceled less than two full days before the scheduled event date will be charged 100% of the total invoice. This charge is to cover foods that cannot be used, labor, rental goods, and jobs we may have declined in order to accommodate your event.
