For the safety and well-being of our clients and guests, food and beverages, which have not been consumed, are not permitted to be removed from a catered event. For all functions not attended (delivery or pickup) it is the responsibility of the customer to provide proper storage of food items.

It is advisable to plan as far in advance as possible. Please call to schedule your event no less than ten business days ahead of time. At the time the function is booked, please provide the following information: date, time, location of event, group/organization, estimated count, type of service, and account number. We require the final guaranteed count five business days before the event.

The final cost for billing purposes will be based on the guaranteed number supplied by the customer, five days prior to the event or the actual count on the day of service, whichever is greater. Should the actual number served fall below the guaranteed number, the customer will be billed for 100% of the customer guaranteed count.  There will be no reduction in count after five business days prior to the event.
