Payments, Deposits and Contracts

The Food & Beverage minimum listed in your License Agreement OR listed on your Confirmed Banquet Event Order must be paid in full 30 days prior to arrival with the final guarantee and any additional charges are due three (3) business days prior to arrival. Savor Catering does not invoice or extend credit as such your order will be processed upon receipt of deposit, SIGNED estimated Banquet Event Order and Banquet Check.

A final guaranteed attendance figure must be communicated to the Catering Department three working days prior to your event.  This figure is the number of guests for which you guarantee to pay and is not subject to reduction.  We will prepare 3% over your guaranteed attendance (guarantee up to 300) in vegetarian meals and 2% over (from 300-1000) in vegetarian meals. Services with fewer than the required number of guests may incur a higher cost per unit and/or and additional service charge.  Once minimums are stated, they cannot be reduced.

You may finalize your account by company check, cashier’s check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or cash.  The Catering Sales Department will process/pre-approve your credit card for any estimate balance due 3 business days prior to your function date. Any on-site adjustments, additions or replenishments of the contracted catering services will be reflected in a final invoice, payable upon conclusion of the event.
