We book up to a year in advance for FULL SERVICE ONSITE CATERING, AND DELIVERY. If you have a date in mind, give us a call.2-3 days for PICK-UP OR DELIVERY is appreciated, but as much notice as you can give is great. Our busiest months are May-September. There are days when we become completely booked, even for small orders.
