Your Catering Budget...


When planning to hire a catering company for an event, you should always have some sort of a budget in mind for the food. This is not an easy task but calculating an approximate amount is very important. Based on your catering budget, we’ll develop a suitable menu for your event. It should be noted that certain factors affect the price like number of people, the venue, available equipment, service style, on-site labour, gratuity, ingredients and allergies.


We’ll need these details, in advance, if possible, so that we can prepare an accurate estimate for you. After going over the details, we provide you with a detailed estimate that will outline the breakdown of foods, services and state the costs.

Remember that the initial estimate is simply a preliminary proposal, and may be altered in any way or form to suit your event needs and budget. Feel free to contact us for a free personalized menu or if you have any questions at We look forward to working with you for your next event.

Travel & mileage may be applicable if your event is 30 or more kilometers outside of the Halifax/Dartmouth city limits or from our kitchen in Elmsdale.

Minimum food purchase may apply.
