Food Products, Service and Other Associated Services
You must submit the guaranteed number of guests (the “guest count”) for your Event to Hennessy Catering service coordinator no later than 72 hours prior to the Event. If the actual number of your guests at the time of the Event is larger than the guest count, you will be charged for the additional guests in attendance at the Event per guest rate stated in the Proposal. Hennessy Catering will not discount or reduce the contract price if the actual number of your guests at the time of the Event is less than the guest count you submit to Hennessy Catering.
If you give Hennessy Catering a written notice of cancellation of this Catering Contract more than 15 days prior to the Event Date, Hennessy Catering will agree to cancel this Catering Contract at no charge and will refund any deposit paid. If you do not give Hennessy Catering a written notice of cancellation more than 15 days prior to your Event, you acknowledge that Hennessy Catering will suffer damages (such as the lost opportunity to book other events on the date of your Event, purchase of food and supplies, expenses of the services of Hennessy staff, etc.), and that the amount of actual damages caused by the late cancellation of this Catering Contract would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to quantify. For the late cancellation of this Catering Contract (15 days or less prior to your Event), Hennessy Catering will retain the deposit as liquidated damages. In the event that you cancel this Catering Contract within 05 days of the Event Date, for whatever reason or cause (including without limitation Acts of God, weather, cancellation by location, etc.), you will remain obligated to pay the entire contract price, less the Event Fee, as liquidated damages to Hennessy Catering. You agree that these liquidated damages represent a fair and reasonable estimate of the losses and expenses Hennessy Catering would sustain as a result of late cancellation of this Catering Contract, given that actual damages are uncertain and not susceptible of exact measurement as of the date of this Catering Contract. Refunds on any accrued cost that falls under the event coordination services and rentals will be determined at time of cancellation.
All menu prices are subject to change based on market prices of food ingredients. If there is a significant increase in any market price, Hennessy Catering will notify you of the contract price increase. If you do not agree to the new price, Hennessy Catering will propose substitute menu items to you in order for you to maintain the agreed upon menu price. If you do not agree to the proposed substitution, then Hennessy Catering may cancel this Catering Contract without further obligation and refund all monies paid.
For staffed Events, Hennessy Catering disposes of unused food and beverage items remaining upon the completion of each Event. If you or any of your guests request to take any of the remaining such food items, Hennessy Catering requires that any person removing food from an event sign a food release form. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Hennessy Catering and its affiliates and their respective employees, representatives, agents and independent contractors harmless from any claims, injuries, losses or damages (including personal injury, wrongful death, and attorney’s fees) arising from or related to the post-Event consumption of leftover catered food and beverage items. Please note that NO CLIENTS WILL BE ALLOWED INTO THE KITCHEN AREA AT ANY TIME.
Each Event is unique and will require a different timeline, so we understand that there will be specific requirements discussed at the time of your booking, This timeline will be followed at all times during the event (for example: if the buffet is requested be opened at 1900-2130HRS then it will open at 1900HRS and close at 2130HRS) if any changes to be done on the function day the organiser will have to contact the function co-ordinator and only then an arrangement can be done.
Event staffing is variable and will be determined at the time of booking (based on the guest count and Event Type). The Catering Coordinator will inform you of the staffing planned for your Event. Hennessy Catering pricing includes 2 hours for onsite, pre-Event set up, 3 hours for Event duration, and 2 hours for post-Event breakdown/cleanup. If your Event exceeds 3 hours in duration, additional staff time will be charged as a fee, in addition to the contract price.
