Times vary depending on service options. For delivery & set up we arrive approximately 30-60 minutes prior to your serving time? For full service usually 60 minutes prior to your serving time but may vary depending on menu and guest count.

Please do not confuse the serving time with the arrival time of your guests. If you are planning to have cocktails or appetizers, we suggest a serving time of 1 hour after the arrival time of your guests. It is important to provide our staff with the correct serving time so that our staff can have your food properly prepared and hot when you’re ready to have it served.

This depends on the guest count and if you have requested more than one buffet/serving line.

The buffet/serving line will be open for 1 to 1&1/2 hours, depending on the # of guests.

Our staff would appreciate having adequate access to the buffet/cooking area which includes a parking spot as close to the area as possible. A level surface for the buffet tables. If it is at night, adequate lighting for the buffet/cooking area.

Payment is due in full on the day of the event unless prior arrangements have been agreed upon. As for gratuity, it can be added to your credit card or offered in cash, which is greatly appreciated for a job well done!
