Check out our wedding services and sample menus below.
aside from providing delicious food, we offer the following services:
servers and on-site cooks
we have a staff of experienced servers and cooks at your disposal. we charge $20 per hour per server or cook, with a four-hour minimum. gratuity is appreciated but certainly not required.
drop-off and pick-up
if your order does not require onsite servers, we can deliver for $20. pick-up is an additional $20. by picking up your order and returning the dishes you can avoid the $20 fees all together. please note that these prices are subject to change for events outside of ann arbor.
we are happy to coordinate rented dishes, glassware, and flatware. at eat, we have everything we will need to serve your guests, so these rented items are simply things your guests will use directly. most often we ask that the client, event coordinator, or event space manager handle the tables, chairs, and linens. we usually use a-1 rentals or deluxe tents and events and pass the rental fees onto the client.
by partnering with bgreen, we can provide compostable plates, bowls, coffee cups and utensils. we can also provide recyclable plastic cups in various sizes. depending on the order, disposable dishes range from $1 per person to $4 per person.
here is a general list of how we price our menus. each menu usually includes:
- a per-person price for the food and non-alcoholic beverages
- a total for the food based on the headcount
- michigan’s 6% sales tax on prepared food
- rentals or disposable dishes
- other (sometimes we pick up ice for clients, etc.)
- a grand total
- cash or check is preferred. checks can be made to eat, llc.
- if you chose to use a credit card a 3% service charge may be added.
- a $500 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the day. this deposit will be deducted from the final bill.
- a payment schedule depends on the size and type of the event. inquire directly regarding details about payment.
we love planning events. heck, that’s why we’re in this industry. here is what you can expect from us while planning your event:
the initial meeting
either over the phone or in person.
please see this as a starting place, we are happy to tweak the menu as you see fit.
a final proposed menu
this is a version of your menu that looks perfect on paper.
this is an optional addition to the process. we charge $25 to $50 per person depending on how involved the tasting is. this fee will be added to the final bill. if, after the tasting, you decide to hire a different caterer we will send you an invoice for the tasting and expect payment within one week.
a $500 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the day for events of 100 people or larger. a $300 non-refundable deposit is required for 30 to 100 person events. this deposit will be deducted from the final bill. this deposit will insure that you are on our calendar and we are on yours.
we can have as many email conversations as you want.
phone conversations are unlimited, as well.
aside from the first meeting and the tasting, one additional meeting at the event space should suffice. if additional planning meetings are necessary, $25 per hour will be added to your final bill.
for larger events a preliminary headcount, which is used only for staffing and rentals orders, is due one month prior to the event. all final counts are due 10 days prior to the event, no matter the size.
we’ll provide a copy of the contract with the deposit receipt. depending on the event size and type, contracts are due within one week, or one month, from the deposit payment.
