To ensure that Catering Services provides the highest quality of service for you & your guests:

  • Menus for larger events such as a served meal or a social/reception should be selected within (7) business days to prevent a 10% later order service fee.*(3) business days for small breaks or pick-ups.
  • Provide as much of the guaranteed event information as possible upon initial ordering and call in your final headcount no earlier than (3) business days prior to your event. These practices help to prevent multiple order changes.
  • Provide notice of event cancellation no later than (4) business days prior to your event date.
*A business day is defined as Monday thru Friday (8:30am - 4:30p), excluding the day of service.
