For larger events and weddings, we will need to confer with the principal parties in order to fully customize the event. A written proposal may be submitted via email and teleconferences may be arranged if desired.
If event is more than six months away, clients will be able to lock in a date while logistics are being worked out by tendering a non-refundable lock in fee of $1,000 will be due. An amount equal to the lock-in fee will be credited to the resulting event contract. This will allow Caterer and Client to confirm on items such as tentative timeline, services desired, menu possibilities and other items of concern to client. Client may defer the final decisions regarding final menu choices, colors and other flexible items until 90 days prior to the event.
If an event is less than 4 months away, the lock-in fee will 25% of the value of the event. The value of this fee is will be given as a credit toward client's final event balance. That fee is to be remitted with the understanding that final contract signing and planning should be completed within a four to six week time frame. Upon signing the contract, a deposit equaling 25 % of the total value of the contract will be due. An additional 25% will be due no later than 90 days prior to event. A modified progress payment plan may be done if desired by client.
We will work with any client in setting up monthly or bimonthly payment plans to fit their budgets. Final payment will be due 15 days prior to event in guaranteed funds.
Cancellation policies are stated in contract agreements when such exists. That policy will override any other stated policies. For smaller events scheduled within a month of the event, no cash refunds are applicable. However, the value of payments may be applied to the rescheduling of the original event within the upcoming 60 days based on date availability.
Yes, we do provide individual tastings for events which will total $2,500 or more. The minimum reservation fee for such tastings is $50 per tasting. This fee is is due at the time that the reservation is confirmed via PayPal on our payment page. The tasting fee may be credited to the booked event.
Why do we charge for tastings? We provide a quality experience and the menu items are prepared specifically for that client. We have in the past provided such tastings free of charge, but have found that committed and informed potential clients understand the time and effort going into an individual tasting session. The fee simply provides an offset toward the actual cost of the tasting.
