Staff

We operate our own in-house staffing services. All service staff are paid a four hour minimum. Service staff are elegantly dressed in white shirts with ties and black trousers. If your party requires alternate attire for the service staff, please inquire.

Event Planning

Enthusiastic, creative, diligent, organized and detail-oriented, à la Carte's event planners are seasoned veterans. From concept to clean up, they provide the assistance you want every step of the way.

Below are a few of the many event aspects an à la Carte event planner can help you with:

Rentals, Entertainment, Site selection, Floral arrangements, Themes and decor.

Rentals

à la Carte Kitchen will be pleased to present you with a rental quote for china, flatware, linens, tables, and glassware if these items are required.  We recommend two companies each with excellent reputations: Chairman Mills Inc. and Exclusive Affair Rentals.

 

Guest Count

The minimum guest count is 8 people, unless otherwise noted. We require a confirmed guest count five business days prior to the function. A guest count may increase in numbers but cannot decrease once a confirmed number has been provided. This restriction is due to the ordering of foods and preparation time required by the kitchen.

Delivery Charge

Delivery charges plus taxes apply to all orders

Service Charge and Taxes

The prevailing federal and provincial taxes are applied where required. All catered foods as well as service staff rates are subject to HST.                                                           

A 15% service charge is to be applied when service staff are in attendance. This charge covers consultation, administration and on-site inspections.

Payments

A deposit of 75% of the total approximate cost is required 10 days prior to event to confirm arrangements. The outstanding amount is to be paid upon receipt of invoice. à la Carte Kitchen reserves the right to request a credit card number (corporate or personal) as a confirmation of order.
