Determing Factors

You've heard it before.

Location, Location, Location

Your venue can be one of the largest determining factors in the production of your event.

If your venue has a commercial kitchen with plenty of refrigeration, counter space and an approved water source your caterer will be very pleased and labor charges should be much lower. If your venue is your favorite secluded beach down a rocky path or halfway up Katahdin Mountain expect to pay a little more.


The Format

Format is also an important factor.

From Table side service to hot buffets or the casual picnic. Your chosen format (and the number of guests) impacts the number of staff required.
