CATERING TIPS

FOOD TRUCK
The food truck requires a 20 amp power source, and a large entry and exit point; the food truck is 26’ long and 12’ wide.

EVENT START/END TIMES
Is your event in the middle of the day? In the summer? Is there access to shade? Does it start late? If so, what are your plans for lighting when it gets dark? We as caterers need access to light if we are breaking down after the event. Light will also ensure your party doesn’t end too early, your guests should be able to see the cake and dance floor!

PLATE SIZE
We suggest renting a 9” plate with 7-8” of space for food, no larger. Larger plates pose a problem with portions and result in a lot of waste.

DINNER ANNOUNCEMENT & THE FOOD TRUCK
Staggering guests is recommended for a buffet. This should be organized beforehand and announced by the
MC prior to serving food. This will give your guests the best experience by reducing their time in line.

In addition to transporting and cooking the food for your event, guests may also be served directly from the truck. We recommend this as a ‘late night snack’ option towards the end of the night. Tacos are popular, and other items are available. Another option is to offer one set item from the truck, which guests can quickly grab to prevent a line forming. Staggering guests is recommended.

SETUP & CLEAN UP
If you are working with a wedding planner and rental company, please share the set up details with us (outside of our food and service responsibilities). Our team can scrape and stack plates into crates and set them out for next day pick up. Please communicate the pick up location prior to the event.

END OF NIGHT CONSIDERATIONS
Typically after food service has ended, the party is still going. A clear entry and exit point for the truck, free of guests, should be considered.

Regarding the bar and the service of the bar after catering hours, we can provide a bartender (please inquire prior to the event). Some parties are comfortable with an unattended late night bar, this is up to you and the event venue. We encourage plenty of light surrounding the bar for the safety of your guests.

DEPOSITS, GRATUITY & BILLING

A $300 deposit is required to hold your date. Two months in advance, the menus must be determined and a contract will be drawn. A 50% deposit will be required at that time. Labor charges are $25 per staff member per hour. A service charge of 20% of total food costs will be added to your final invoice, which will be emailed to you following the event. The invoice will be itemized by food costs, labor costs, and bar costs (if applicable). Previous deposits will be listed and subtracted from the total.


We look forward to catering your NEXT event
