    Catering Information 
    Our event planners are available Monday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm, or by appointment, to help with your catering needs and questions. This is a complimentary service we provide our customers. You can truly gain from our extensive list of industry contacts.


    Placing an Order 
    A successful event requires good planning, so please talk with our event coordinators and place your order as far in advance as possible. Even if you aren’t sure of the date, ask us to “pencil you in” for the dates you are considering. If we get other requests for the same time, we will consult with you first.

    We request that your final menu and number of quests be confirmed 72 business hours in advance of your event. An earlier confirmation may be required for large groups or special menus.

    The Wedge is a small, locally owned, custom caterer. We’ve kept it that way so that we can provide excellent food and personalized service. Unfortunately, it also means our calendar can become fully booked. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you.

    BOOKING YOUR EVENT
    A confirmation agreement or contract for services is required on all events. This confirmation agreement simply reiterates the policies of The Wedge Catering and requires a 50% deposit of the estimated, a signature from the client or financially responsible party and secures your date.

    DEPOSIT REQUIRMENTS
    A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the estimated event costs will be required to confirm a date. The remaining balance will be due one week prior to your event and any balance due to either will be settled within 7 business days.

    CHANGING AN ORDER
    We will make every effort to accommodate last minute changes to your order after it has been confirmed. Please understand, however, that if changes are made less than 72 hours before your event, we will not be able to guarantee additions and reductions will be billed to the extent that the food has already been prepared.

    CANCELLATION POLICY
    Events cancelled within 5 calendar days are subject to a 10% charge on the estimated food and beverage costs. Events cancelled within 2 calendar days, the cancellation charge is 50% and within 24 hours, a cancellation charge of 90% will apply. These charges apply to all events for which a customer deposit has not been obtained.
