Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. Weddings are our most common type of event that we service. The busiest time of the year is May through December where we are being booked for Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day parties, Halloween parties, Christmas parties and the biggest event of the year, New Years! Soon after New Years, comes the Super Bowl! Wedding season starts around or just before Memorial day and ends around or sometimes after Labor day with a few stragglers here and there. With weddings come expensive drinks and multiple guests. Folks tend to spend more money on weddings than on your typical party or event for friends and family.
Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A. Myself and an associate serviced a wedding party for a great couple down in Orange county. When we reached the venue we found that the ice machine was a community ice machine and two other wedding parties were using this same machine. We were all out of ice and had nothing to chill our drinks with as well as fill our ice well. How were we gonna serve our guests? We drove to the nearest store which was Stater Bros and purchase 100lbs of ice just get the party started. We did what we needed to do to take care of our wedding party. Sometimes we have to make executive decisions to help others in need!
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. There are many questions your vendor should be asking you about your event. If your vendor fails to ask these questions he or she may be unqualified to handle the job they applied for.
1. What type of event is it?
2. How many guests will you expect?
3. What is the address to the event?
4. What is the time and date for your event?
5. May I help to create a drink menu?
6. May I help with your shopping list?
7. Can you provide a contact number for your event?
8. What shall I be wearing for this occasion?
9. And finally, do you have any questions for me?
Your vendor should be guiding you through this process step by step.
