Q. Can I provide some of the food myself?
A. For any event that is held off-site at your location of choice, you are welcome to supplement our menu with your own additions. The only requirement that we have to be displayed on a different table and to be specified on the contract (the items that you are supplying)

Q. What payment options do you allow? and   Is there a contract or deposit required to book my event?
A.   Most of our events starts at a minimum  $ 500.00. We do have an event contract that is required for all off-premise catered events. There is an initial deposit of 25% that is required along with the signed contract. According to the terms of our contract, the initial deposit can be paid by cash or check.. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the event and can be paid in any of the above methods. The remaining balance is based on the estimated headcount at that time. Any underpayment, due to an increase in the headcount or change in menu, is due prior to the event. Any overpayment will be refunded within one week after the event is completed (however the final headcount count is stands).

Q. Can I keep any of the food that is left over after my event? I hate to see it go to waste and would like to donate it to a charity.
A. Unfortunately, the health department does not permit us to leave any remaining food after an event is completed. During the course of an event, we can monitor and maintain proper cooking and serving temperatures to ensure the safety of the food. No such sanitation guidelines are in place for home reuse. Also, most charities will not accept food that has already been prepared in advance. ****  However if the function is hosted at your home you are welcome to food that has been set out on the buffet table. You must bring your own containers and lids. Once a waiver is signed, you assume responsibility for proper storage and transportation of the food.
Q How Early Should I Contact You to Cater my Event?

A. You will be charged for a minimum of the headcount confirmed 1- week prior. In the event that more guests attend, we are prepared to amend up to 10 % of guarantied number (not necessary the agreed menu items) you will also be billed for the additional guests. If you have less guests attend that what you guaranteed, you are still responsible for paying for the guaranteed guest count. We ask that your headcount be as accurate as possible since we cook everything fresh on-site. The accuracy of your headcount allows us to provide you and your guests with the freshest, highest quality food at the most reasonable price possible, so we do not prepare for a standard "overage" on your guest count.
