Our “full service” reception packages are designed for the discriminating client. We’ve included a sample package for each of the above service styles. However, venue specific packages and our full menu are also available upon request.
Services. Dinner plate, salad plate, & flatware (deliver Friday, pickup Monday). Guest places are pre-set with 2 forks, knife and folded linen napkin. Salt & Pepper shakers at each guest table. Please see our formal reception services for a complete list..
Menu Selections. For most weddings, we offer a free taste testing and consultation for prospective couples and parents. These are by appointment only and take place at our Brackenridge location. Here you will get a chance to evaluate our food and professionalism, discuss all aspects of your reception and receive a price quote. We suggest that you arrange this as soon as possible so we can accommodate your schedule. Smaller weddings may incur a nominal charge for the tasting.
Pricing. All prices are subject to a 20% production fee and PA sales tax. Package pricing assumes a standard equipped indoor banquet hall within our geographic market. Services may be restricted at some locations. Pricing for outdoor events, distant locations or unfamiliar venues will be provided upon request.
NOTE: Certain venues have a dedicated menu and pricing – please contact us for details. Note: We have special menu packages for wedding receptions. Pricing may not be applicable to all venues; additional fee may apply.
Payments and Policies:
We require a $750 non-refundable retainer to guarantee your date. 50% of the total cost must be paid 90 days before your event. Final balance must be paid 7 days in advance of your wedding. Cash and checks are preferred (3% charge for credit cards).
Please make checks payable to: Chef & I Catering, 902 Brackenridge Ave, Brackenridge, PA 15014.
A preliminary guest count is due 30 days before your wedding. A final “guaranteed” guest count is due 11 days ahead (on Tuesday). Guest count cannot be reduced after this point. Children under 10 and non-seated vendors are billed at a discounted rate.
You will be provided with a detailed proposal/confirmation for your event. This will list all menu items, services, pricing, key times and all other important details of the reception. A “final review” will be conducted by phone approximately 30 days ahead of your date and all details and revisions will be addressed.
