Can I take care of my own rental equipment?

  • The charge is 20% of the service and clients always feel it’s worth it for the peace of mind that comes with knowing that our experienced staff is overseeing every detail. We must take care of the china, glassware and silverware. It is directly related to the food service and is a complete reflection on our company. We do have different choice’s of plates, glasses, etc.

What do we need to provide for a drop off event?

  • Food For All Catering will need areas for the food and the drinks. Usually kitchen or patio tables, kitchen islands, dining room tables and card tables work just fine. If you do not have these available, we are happy to make these arrangements for you.

How are the leftovers handled?

  • Many times, there will be leftover foods after the event. We will be glad to leave home-sized portions on request as long as the food has been held at the correct safe-zone temperatures and proper storage is immediately available. If there is any doubt about food safety, the food will be thrown away.

Who is responsible for the table and chair set up?

  • All rental equipment should be set up and broken down by the rental company. Specific venues offering tables and chairs usually have their own maintenance staff. Food For All Catering staff will sometimes move table and chair placement for a more comfortable flow. We do prefer keeping our staff fresh for their specific part of your special event.

How many staff will be working?

  • Every event and location will have its challenges, so we find generic staffing formulas do not work. Based on what we learn about your location, menu and budget, will determine exactly how many staff members you will need. Our detailed catering proposal will outline the number of staff members. If you would like “extra” staff to assist, we are happy to help.

How can I save money?
