Your Questions about Catering Answered
Our caterer(s) will arrive approximately 30-45 minutes before your requested eating time. This time is also dependent on the weather and how many guests you are expecting.
Typically, our caterings run a standard of an hour to an hour and a half. All events are invoiced based on a reasonable time for personnel to be on location. If our personnel are delayed, customers will be billed appropriately.
All of our caterings are based on a self-serve buffet style, and as such we do not serve tables. Our caterers will set up the buffet, and will be onsite while your guests are going through making sure that everything is fresh, stocked and clean. Once everyone is happily fed we will pack and clean up the buffet.
We do not provide tables or linens. We recommend a number of rental places that can be found on our website here.
