CATERING POLICY

Food, beverage, and additional items charges based on guest count will be based on the client’s final guaranteed count.  Final guest counts are due no later than 30 days before the event date.  If no final guest count is received, we will use the number of guests used in the initial proposal.  Unfortunately, we do not offer a cake cutting service for wedding cakes. 

STAFFING

Our staff will be dressed in our catering attire. Standard service includes 1 ½ hours of open buffet time and all necessary servers up to 3 hours. (Set up and clean up time of our area is also included in our price.) Set up can begin at 1 to 2 hours before the event through the final cleanup of the event (or if other arrangements have been made.)  Overtime is billed at the rate of $20.00 per server per hour.  No overtime will be incurred if the event ends on schedule.   We reserve the right to increase or decrease the number of staff if the guaranteed guest count is 10% higher or lower than the number included in the proposal.

DEPOSIT & CANCELLATION POLICY

A deposit of 50% of the total estimated amount is needed to confirm the booking of this event.  Deposit refunds on cancellations are handled as follows –

FAQ’s

How much will it cost?

Prices are listed above to cover guests who are looking for full-service buffet-style catering.  If you are looking for “Options by the Pan” please view our website at www.bignicksonbaytree.com under our catering store.

Is there a minimum for full-service catering?

Typically, no, but it is suggested that anyone looking to feed 40 or more people consider going with our full-service option.  Other suggestions can be discussed if the guests are looking to feed themselves such as the “Options by the Pan” as mentioned above.  For smaller headcounts, this would be a simpler pick-up or drop-off style option.  The purchase of wire racks and burners is available just ask.  

Are there any other fees?

There is a 20% service charge added to all full-service catering events.  The service charge covered our uniformed staff members for gratuity, set up, serving, and breaking down of the catering station. We also have a gas surcharge to cover mileage outside of Valdosta Ga traveling to and from the venue. Also, Sales Tax is required by the State of Georgia to be added to the entire total.  If you have a bar option added to your event there are taxes required for that as well.

Finalizations  

Big Nick’s has several businesses flowing all under one and we prefer to be as prepared as possible to ensure that you receive the best service. We expect to have as much notice to carefully plan.  A minimum of 30 days is most appreciated and a maximum of 2 weeks when possible. 

Leftovers

Occasionally we know all guests will not show up for your event. We portion out each serving based upon the headcount given. If that number is lesser than the original quote, any food items left will be packed and left for the host in a safe storage area. If the guest count is correct, we will determine at the end of the event if food is available to leave with the client and bring containers to do so.

Why does the meat look pink?

Big Nicks BBQ meats such as beef, chicken, ribs, and pork are smoked for hours to perfection in our pit.   The smoke causes a chemical reaction in the meat which can cause a slight pink coloring.  Our meats are smoked for hours and are fully cooked, juicy, and delicious.

Will you travel?

Yes! Travel surcharges will apply.  We will also need to be aware of the venue accessibility measures in advance.
