General Policies

Events scheduled less than 72 hours will incur a late booking fee of 20% of the food & beverage bill or $25, whichever is greater. A final guest count and signed contract is required at least 72 hours prior to the event. If the final count is not received, the number indicated on the original order will be considered the guarantee. Within 72 hours of your event you may only increase your final count, not decrease. In the event your order requires changes or additions, these must be submitted to the sales office by 2pm the day before the event. There will not be any new orders accepted with less than 24 hours’ notice.

Payment

If a client is paying by check, 100% of the payment must be collected no less than seven business days prior to the event. This gives us the opportunity to verify availability of funds. If a client is paying by credit card, the credit card will be swiped no less than two business days prior to the event. For example, if the catering event is on the weekend, the card will be swiped by 12pm on Thursday.

Delivery

Minimum order of $150 is required in food and beverages before tax or gratuity. If you meet the food and beverage requirement, you will receive complimentary delivery service. If you do not meet the required $150, you will be charged an additional $25 as a delivery fee.
