Our Outside Catering Process



It is important for us to listen to our customers and understand what they need. During this phase we get tentative dates, number of guests, variety of food and accompaniments, and lastly, the drinks that will be served.



We close on the final dates that outside catering will be needed. We also finalize on the number of guests, food, accompaniments and drinks that will be served. We also take any special instructions. At ths point, a deposit is required for final confirmation.



Expect timely delivery of freshly prepared food to your corporate or social event as per your order and instructions. Our staff will be onsite to help with the serving of the food and drinks, setting of the tables and handling requests from guests.
