DNL Catering Policies
Hours & Minimums
If any of our policies cause difficulties for your organization then please advise us and we will do everything possible to accommodate your needs!
The basic minimum for catering is 50 diners.
Generally orders require a 1 week notice. If you have a last minute event we will try to accommodate although there is a 10% ($50 minimum) expedite charge and we may need to make reasonable ingredient substitutions.
A 20 minute delivery window is required.
Cancellations within the above notice times will incur a 25% charge of the total amount of the invoice. Parties and barbeques require an initial non-refundable deposit (10%, no less than $100 but no more than $500). A 50% deposit is required two weeks ahead of the event. Last minute cancellations may incur additional charges depending upon our actual ingredient and labor expenses.
Payments in full are due net 30 days after the date of event on approved accounts. Orders placed before credit is approved must be paid C.O.D. or by credit card; major cards are accepted.
All orders, except resale, are subject to sales tax unless (1) this is a valid non-taxable event, and (2) we are provided with a 501(c)3 tax-exempt number (charities, schools, religious organizations). Federal government and included organizations (Amtrak, Federal CUs) are also tax exempt.
DNL guarantees exceptional food and delivery service. If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
