The following are some FAQs about our services: 1. How soon in advance should we plan to book the caterer for an event or wedding? It is very important to book your date as soon as you can and don't put it off until months before your wedding. Clients typically book caterers 6 to 12 months before the date. In some cases, the clients have no choice and had to book a caterer as early as 3 weeks before the date. As long as we are available, we have no problem catering the wedding. 2. Do you cater for other events besides weddings? Yes, we provide special menus for corporate events, holiday parties, graduations, funerals and luncheons. 3. What is the contacts' role, and how will they be involved during our event? Our director of sales and events, Danielle Gooderum, will guide you through the entire process from when you book your event to the date of your event. Together, we will build a specific and unique menu, schedule a tasting and adjust your proposal up to 2 weeks before your event. At that point, the final proposal is set in stone, and Dani will convey all the details with the lead server, delivering crew and chef to ensure a perfect day! 4. Does Catering by Dani host tastings? Yes! We offer complimentary tastings to the bride and groom. We believe that it is an important step when choosing a caterer. 5. How are the food costs determined? Is it itemized pricing, or is there an all-inclusive flat rate? The proposal is based on a per-person price, which is an all-inclusive package with full service to include all the side accompaniments to the meal, coffee table (freshly brewed all night), cutting and serving of your wedding cake, China place setting and silverware, servers and lead server, chefs, set up and break down. We also finish and display our food on-site, so it is the freshest it can be with a stellar presentation. Everything are cooked from scratch right in our kitchen! 6. What is Catering by Dani's average price range? The dinner pricing starts at $16 per person, which includes all the services mentioned above. The cost varies per catering style with plated at the most expensive, family style in the middle, and buffet style being the least expensive. We are able to do drop-offs with disposables if you want our food versus our services. Any additional cost would be taxed with a 17% service charge (unless doing a drop-off) and with a delivery fee of $295. Some venues will charge an additional catering fee. The price varies per venue. 7. What will Catering by Dani provide in addition to the meal? This includes dinner service, water goblets, water crafts, salt and pepper shakers, bread baskets with butter, salad and salad plates, flatware, dinner china, coffee and water station with coffee cups, water cups, creamer, sugar, and cocktail napkins; cake plates and cake forks. 8.
