How We Work:

We require a final count 7 days prior to the event. Should the count increase more than

10% of the final count you will be charged a per head price for every additional guest.

Chef for Hire, LLC also requires a 50% deposit due 30 days prior to the event if

applicable time allows. The balance of the bill is due on the date of the party. Should

there be a cancellation of the event date, Chef for Hire will retain a non-refundable

deposit of $500.00 and will return the remainder of the deposit to the client. If the client

chooses to pick a new date, Chef for Hire will put the remainder of the deposit towards

the new date. Should the event take more time than quoted, there will be an additional

hourly charge for every extra hour spent by the staff.

Chef for Hire, LLC does not include gratuity in the quote for the party. We believe that

great service should be the standard! We suggest if you are happy with the service, that

you include 20% of the total bill. A 7.35% state sales tax will be mounted to each bill.

We accept Venmo, checks and cash. All parties over 6 guests will require additional staffing and

will be suggested in the quote. We provide one server per 15 guests depending on the

services needed by the client.

All events in which the food is to be dropped off, will be charged a $40 delivery fee, If

there is a need to pick up equipment after the event there is a $40 pick- up fee. All parties

over 50 miles from Middletown will be charged $50 mileage fee.

on quantity or wine choices you may want us to match with the food. our service staff is TIPS certified. We can also take

care of the rental of linens, glassware, dishware, and flatware for an additional charge. We

provide most cooking utensils and serving platters, should you like us to use your serving
