Dates for catering are only reserved upon receipt of a deposit. Once reserved, that date will be held exclusively for you, and I will turn down all other requests for that date. Cancellations of reservations have a huge impact on my business.
Catering deposits are not refundable. We understand that things happen and we will always try to work with you.
If we are negotiating a date, and another person inquires about the same date, I will give you a 12 hour window to either make a deposit or consider another date. After 12 hours, the date will be offered to the second client.
While I do try to be flexible and accommodating, I am the only person who does Personal Chef work for my company. When I reserve a date for you, I will turn down work for other clients on that date.
