What type of catering services do you provide?

We can organize your entire event. This includes site selection, logistics, rentals, linens, décor, all food and complete beverage service, and staffing.

 

What is your catering menu?

All catering menus are created and customized from scratch, based on client input regarding theme, preferences and budget.

 

What do you charge for catering?

We work on a wide range of events, from informal to elegant, so naturally the cost will vary depending on the size and sophistication of the event. We will work with you though, to create the best event that works within your budget. Basically, costs are broken out into 8 categories: food, beverage, rentals, labor, linen, décor, service charge and taxes.

 

What is included in your cost?

This depends on the extent of our service. We can produce the entire event or assist with a portion of it and coordinate with other vendors and providers.

 

What does the “service charge” include?

The service charge is calculated as 17% of the food and beverage totals and covers costs such as additional labor, chefs, fuel, insurance, transportation and gratuities.

 

Do you require a deposit?

A 10% deposit is generally required, but negotiable.

 

Can I order just a couple of items to serve with what I’ve already made?

Absolutely. Our service is customized to meet your needs. We can be there to assist or just drop off the requested food and beverages.

 

Do you provide bar service?

We carry a Type 58 caterer’s permit, which allows us to serve alcohol anywhere in the state of California.

 

How far do you travel?

We are centrally located between San Jose and Monterey and are willing to travel anywhere to provide catering services to our clients. We frequently manage events at Stanford University in Palo Alto as well as in the Pebble Beach/Carmel Valley areas. We’ve also provided catering for the San Francisco 49ers and have traveled as far as Arizona and Idaho. There are no limits.
