IS THERE SOME WAY TO ORGANIZE A TASTING?
YES! We are happy to help with that. If you're wondering if Shane's food is right for you, you are always welcome to swing by the food truck on the streets in Hood River, OR Monday-Friday, 9:30-2:30. Check out the menu here. If you would like to organize a private tasting of a menu item, Shane would be happy to make you dinner. We will organize a nice place for you to enjoy dinner with the meat option of your choice from the menu. There is a $35/person fee for this that will be deducted from your final invoice if you decide to book with us.
What does the 20% Service Charge include?
There is so much that goes into catering an event. There are many hours of planning, prep, shopping and correspondence that we put into each client's special day. Often we need to make several trips to procure food items from various farmers. There are kitchen rentals, prep staff wages, utilities, propane, fuel, insurance and liabilities, equipment and truck maintenance as well as expendables. This is a rather standard fee in the industry.
Is it the same as gratuity?
No. A gratuitity is never asked. Never expected. Always appreciated and shared with all.
Do we need Bar Insurance?
Please ask your venue. There are different rules for each location. If the venue wants the caterer to carry insurance for the bartender, there is a $200 insurance fee that we give directly to the insurer.
How do we figure out the length of time staff is needed?
Consider the number of people and the amount of help you will need setting up. We typically arrive ready to 'help' the wedding party set the tables. Most brides have a 'day of' person that has all of the instructions our staff will need to get busy. If most of the table setting is necessary, then please factor in 1 hour minimum prior to guest arrival. Cleaning up after a large party can take some time. More hands make for light work! Our staff typically needs 1-1.5 hours after dinner service is over to clear plates, care for rentals and any other venue specific needs for clean-up. If the venue does not offer trash service, this can be taken care of by the staff if organized in advance and for a $50 trash fee. Most venues have dumpsters.
What other fees are included?
We strive to be very transparent with all costs. This is NOT standard in this industry. With our Build Your Menu tool, you can take full control of your budget. Please remember that as the time nears your date, we will become more clear all of the aspects of your event. We will work hand in hand with your rental company to ensure no detail is left out. After a 'Day Of' conversation, we will capture all the details we need.
