Financial and Contractual
Once you have decided to engage our services for your event and we have determined availability, menu and beverage selections, staffing requirements, equipment rentals and any other additional services, we will compile an estimate and contract for your event.
We require a minimum 25% deposit and a returned signed estimate and contract. We also ask for a credit card guarantee for all events. You may pay your deposit and any additional payments with cash, check or credit card. The Credit Card Guarantee form will indicate which cards we accept.
We must receive a guaranteed number of guests (7) days before the event. At this time, we ask that we have a deposit total of 90% of the overall anticipated charges. Up to three (3) days prior to the event, the number of guests may increase but not decrease. You will be billed on the final guaranteed number.
Your balance is due at the end of your event. If payment for the balance on the bill is not received by the end of your function, we will charge your credit card on file for any balance due.
In order to be eligible for cancellation, you must cancel your event no later than (10) days prior to the event. You are eligible to receive a full refund. However, if expenses, costs or losses to Walter Burke Catering, Inc. should occur in connection with the cancelled event, those costs shall be deducted from the deposit before it is returned.
