Below are some questions we get asked quite often about our catering department.
What form of payments do you accept?
We currently accept Venmo, PayPal, Cash discounts or Checks.
Do you need a deposit?
We book events all throughout the year. We recommend that as soon as you know your date, you book your event. We don’t guarantee dates until you have signed/generated the contract and a 30% deposit secures your event or as agreed by the client and caterer.
Do you offer menu tastings?
We most certainly do. We love to meet our clients and discuss your event details. Menu tastings are $75 for two guests and $25 for each additional guest. This allows us to purchase the food, hire staff for prep, and rental the kitchen. This is a full meal created for you from scratch and will take all leftover food you purchased for you to enjoy.
Do you offer discounts for large groups?
Yes, we offer discounts which will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Example: Rent out Party Coach and Catering. Ask about cash payment discounts.
How far do you travel?
We will travel near and far, depending on the size of the event.
What do you do with the left overs?
We package this up in foil containers and leave in the refrigerator or on plates for guests to enjoy. The client may request us to donate food to a local shelter, family or friends at the event.
What do you provide?
All menus include Professional wait staff, heavy disposable plates, wrapped and sealed utensils, napkins, and serving utensils for drop-off catering.
What if my event is canceled?
Any payment received will be used for a future event date. This must be done with a new signed contract and the date must be within 1 year of the original event date.
When do you need the final guest count?
As stated on our contract, this must be finalized within 2-4 weeks prior to your event date and also when the final payment is due.
How many servers will you bring and how long do you stay?
Depending on the size and style of the event, buffet set up or plated dinner will depend on how many staff you need. Our buffet menus include 4 hour event time that includes time for set-up and for us to clean up buffet tables.
What other services do you provide?
Hire a private chef for your event with a minimum $750 in total fees.
Mobile Horse Trailer Bartending

Drop off and pick up catering with an approved menu from the chef and manager.
Do you clean tables?
