Hosting an event can be an exciting but challenging endeavor, and choosing an outside caterer with a fully self-sufficient gazebo set up can make all the difference. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through what to expect from us on the day of your event. From arrival to service, we’ll cover it all, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your special day.

  1. Arrival and Set-Up:

    • Timeliness: As your caterer, we will arrive well in advance to set up the gazebo and prepare the food. Punctuality is key to a seamless event. This is usually 2 – 2.5 hours before service.
    • Gazebo Placement: We would have discussed in advance where the gazebo will be set up to ensure it doesn’t obstruct any views or pathways.
    • Access / Egress: Upon your booking with us, we would have discussed access/ egress, our walking route for set up and where we would park our vehicle.
  2. Self-Sufficiency of the Gazebo:

    • Power Supply: As a fully self sufficient LPG caterer. We will not require any electric from you on the day of your event.
    • Water Supply: We have access to our own water supply so will not require access to water from you.
    • Cooking Facilities: We like to describe our set up as a portable commercial kitchen. Our appliances include a fryer, flat top griddle, and depending on menu choice we can also have a hog roast oven or a BBQ.
    • Waste Disposal: Waste disposal will be agreed and stated in our terms and conditions.

  3. Food Preparation:

    • Freshness: We prefer to prepare food on-site, ensuring it’s served at its freshest.
    • Customisation: Discuss any dietary restrictions or special requests with us upon booking, this allows us accommodate and make alternate menu choices if required.

  4. Service Style:

    • Buffet: A buffet-style service is the preferred method with outside catering. Your guests can choose from a variety of dishes.

  5. Event Coordination:

    • Coordination with Other Vendors: If other vendors will be at your event, we would agree with you the location and order of arrival to best suit your needs for the day.
    • Timeline Management: We will always do our best to adhere to the event schedule, serving courses and handling clean-up at the appropriate times. The typical event for us entails a 2 – 2.5hr set/ food prep. A 2 hours serving window and then finally 1 hour to clean up and pack away.

  6. Clean-Up:

    • Post-Event Clean-Up: We will be responsible for cleaning up our area and leaving the space as they found it.
    • Breakdown of the Gazebo: After the event, the gazebo and catering equipment will be dismantled and taken away.

  7. Guest Satisfaction:

    • Guest Experience: The success of your event is measured by guest satisfaction. Encourage feedback to help improve future events.
    • Flexibility: We try our best to allow flexibility in menu choices and adjustments to accommodate your guests’ preferences.

Conclusion: When hiring us, you can expect a convenient and memorable dining experience for your event. From professional set-up to delicious food and efficient clean-up.. Collaborate closely with us to create the perfect dining experience for your guests.
