When collaborating and catering an event with Semolina, there are some terms and conditions we want to make you aware of.
Catering coordination charges
Creating a successful event takes much more than just extraordinary food. Our party planner extraordinaire Katia Piccolino is there for you at every step of the planning. From meeting with you to discussing your ideas, to customizing menus, venue selection and inspections, staff coordination, on-site event management, rentals drop off and pick up to finally, on-site coordination on the day of your event. This fee also covers many of the little extras we include to make your event special. This includes liaising with suppliers to ensure competitive pricing, preparation of the catering estimate as well as provision of the bar equipment, decorative table decor and serving dishes/utensils. Our goal is to ensure that your expectations for your event are translated smoothly into a seamlessly executed event.
Our staff shift is a minimum of 4 hours. Clients are only billed from the time staff arrives on-site until they leave. Once we have established set-up and logistical requirements, we will provide you with staff arrival times and the number of staff required.
Delivery / pickup coordination
Semolina charges a nominal fee on all drop off catering. The fee covers the cost of delivery and pick up of your food, any serving platters / utensils and anything else you need for your event. Depending on the event location, different delivery / pick up charges apply. **There is no charge for delivery on full service catered events.
Rentals, venue costs, final payment & gratuities
Any costs associated with rentals and venues are additional. Accounts will be reconciled and a final invoice issued by email within 7 days of the event date. Accounts that remain unpaid within 15 days of being issued will incur an interest charge of 2% per month. The Semolina team are always thrilled to be recognized for great service! At their discretion, clients may tip staff for exceptional service. If you wish, a gratuity can be included in your final bill.
