What is considered a “catering”?
We arrive in a fully stocked support vehicle allowing plenty of time for set-up and stay throughout the 2-hour meal service.We provide all hardware, serving utensils, labor for maintaining food line(s), and beverage station. We provide table coverings for the food line(s) and beverage station. Our experienced staff is appropriately dressed, courteous, and professional. When arriving on site, we are self-sufficient in the fact that we do not need a kitchen facility to prep foods.
Can you do outdoor events?
Absolutely! Mike and his cook team thoroughly enjoy the outdoors. We currently have a small, one box pull behind the grill that we use for parties for less than 100 guests. We have a larger three box pull behind that gives us the opportunity to serve thousands with our on site capabilities. A large deep fryer is often used on site for our “Proper Southern Fish Fry”, which has become quite popular for our outdoor events.
We also carry tents for our serving lines and cook station if needed.
Do you have the ability to do concessions?
Concessions bring happiness to ANY gathering. We do offer cotton candy, popcorn, snow cones and ice cream bars.
Can we rent additional linens for our event?
We can provide linen tablecloths for dining tables/brides table/display tables etc. Arrangements can be made for linen pick up ahead time for the day before venue set-up/decorating.
We have a large stock of white table skirting. White skirting gives an elegant look to brides table, gift table, food table, cake table, etc. Each skirt is 21 linear feet. We can give you a close estimate and quote your needs.
Chair cover and ribbons are also added that makes a beautiful statement to a room. These can also be quoted per chair.
