This could be many different foods to be served at many different temperatures. You may have to use chafing dishes or an oven to finish heating your food after pick-up. Please ask for advice about heating your food.

(Up to 10 miles. 11-100 miles charged additional.)
Your food will be refrigerated and ready to heat, unless you specify that you want it warm. We will deliver as far as you like; past 10 miles will cost additional. Warm food can be tricky. Some foods need additional heating at the location. If you don't have an oven or chafing dishes, consider delivery and set up instead. Please ask for advice about heating your food. Early morning, late night, or third shift deliveries are available at additional cost. You must provide a contact with a cell phone whenever possible.

 

 

Delivery and Set up - $75 for delivery plus $20 per chafing dish

(Up to 10 miles. 11-100 miles charged additional.)
Setting up a hot buffetrequires more time than a warm drop off, so we need a larger window of arrival. We will arrive about 1 ½ hours before you eat.  It takes about 30 minutes to set up an average buffet so please have buffet tables ready with your favorite tablecloth or order them from us if you like. We will supply all bread baskets, salad bowls, serving spoons, tongs etc. Our staff will have your buffet completely set up, hot, and ready to enjoy by your specified eating time. You may return our equipment the next business day, or add our return and pick up service to your order. You must provide a contact with a cell phone whenever possible to make deliveries smooth and easy.

 

Return and Pick up service - $45

Our staff will return the following business day to pick up our equipment. Please order return service when placing your food order.

 

Buffet Attendants / Bartenders / Grill Chefs

Buffet attendants will set up, maintain and serve from behind the buffet as necessary and wrap up any leftovers for you to keep. They will break down the buffet and remove all equipment when finished. Buffet attendants are not responsible for any other part of the event.

 

Full Service   

Full service events include an event coordinator to help you with the details of your event. Servers, chefs and bartenders are staffed as needed to help you in any way that they can to make your event a memorable one. We can provide tents, musicians, photographers, DJ's, flowers, linens, etc.. Please call to set up an appointment. In just 20-30 minutes we can get enough information to give you a written quote.

 

Payment & Cancellation Policy

A 25% deposit is required to confirm all orders. Full payment is due 7 days prior to event. There are no cancellations after full payment is due. Any events with full service will require final head count, changes, & final payment 14 days prior to the event. There are no cancellations after full payment is due. Your order begins well before you receive it. This starts with ordering food from our many venders, receiving, prepping, cooking and finally delivery. This is a week long process. For this reason we cannot cancel your food after the payment due date. It is suggested that you have contingency plan for bad weather. It you decide not to take delivery for any reason, as a courtesy, your order can be frozen and held for a later date for no charge, or we will deliver to a homeless shelter in your name with no delivery charge.
