Catering Policies & Fees

Menu Pricing
The menu price quoted is based on the estimated guest count. If the guaranteed guest count is significantly less than the estimated guest count, we may have to reprice the menu as fixed costs must be amortized over the fewer attending number of guests.

KR’s Geaux-2 Catering reserves the right to substitute ingredients and/or increase prices in the event that food prices rise substantially between the time of the signing of the contract and the date of the event.  We will notify you promptly to discuss.

Inclusive In Menu Pricing
All of our on-site catering service includes disposable table cloths for the buffet tables. Food warmers/chafing equipment are available for rental.

Tastings
KR’s Geaux-2 Catering offers a tasting for large events (minimum 100 guests).  We charge $40 per entrée item (three 12-14 oz. servings per entrée choice) and $30 per appetizer item (3 sample size portions per appetizer choice) for tastings. These fees covers the cost of food, time spent shopping, prepping, cooking, and kitchen labor. The fee is refunded as credit on your final paid booking invoice balance.

18% Catering Fee
This charge will be included in your invoice/proposal which offsets labor and administration costs such as administrative tasks, working with rental companies, dishwashing, packing and loading for your event, site visits, labor costs, and travel time to and from your event, etc. State and local tax fees will be added.

Guest Count Guarantee
A final guest count is required 21 business days prior to the event.

Guest Count Increases
We will entertain guest count increases after the guaranteed guest count is received, but no later than 10 days prior to event date.  KR’s Geaux-2 Catering, however reserves the right to make substitutions in menus item(s) for those guests in excess of the final guaranteed guest count.
