Q: What should I consider when choosing a menu for my event?
A: The number of attendees, time of day/week and demographic of your guests are the biggest factors to consider when selecting your menu. Some menu items are more adaptable for special dietary accommodations, if that is a concern. See below for more information on special diets.
Q: I don’t know where to start. What do you suggest?
A: Browse through our menus based on the category that best fits your event. Appetizers/snacks, breakfast, boxed lunches, bars & buffets (suitable for lunch or dinner events), dinner or our seminar package - just click on the category. Then complete the form on this page to start a discussion with Chef Naj.
Q: How much lead time is needed for my event?
A: At least four business days to give us time to place our food orders ahead of our distributor's delivery.
Q: What is included with my catering order?
A: Everything listed in the menu descriptions plus disposable eating utensils, serving utensils, plates, and napkins. Heating equipment is also included; it requires a damage deposit that will be refunded when the equipment is returned undamaged.
Q: Why should I use CKC for my event rather than a food truck?
A: A catering service offers many benefits over a food truck. Read this blog post on the pros and cons of CKC versus a food truck.
Q: I have an all-day event. Can you cater everything I need?
A: We certainly can. We offer a "seminar package," which includes breakfast, lunch, coffee, beverages, and snacks for an all-day event. Want to add on dinner as well? No problem. Just tell us what you would like and what time you want your delivery, and we'll take care of the rest. Ask about our discount for multi-day events!
Q: Can you accommodate any dietary restrictions/sensitivities my guests might have?
A: Of course! Allergies and special diets are no problem. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are referenced on our menus, and we can make substitutions or modifications to most other items. If you don't know what dietary restrictions guests may have, we recommend ordering a few meals that are both gluten free and vegan along with your regular menu items.
