Catering Policies & Fees
The menu price quoted is based on the estimated guest count. If the guaranteed guest count is significantly less than the estimated guest count, we may have to reprice the menu as fixed costs must be amortized over the fewer attending number of guests.
KR’s Geaux-2 Catering reserves the right to substitute ingredients and/or raise prices (with your input and approval) in the event that food prices rise substantially between the time of the signing of the contract and the date of the event.
Inclusive In Menu Pricing
All of our events include disposable table cloths for the buffet, decor, and any chafing dishes and/or platters if applicable.
KR’s Geaux-2 Catering charges a $45 per entree item (16 oz. serving) and $25 per appetizer item (5 sample size portions) for tastings. These fees covers the cost of food, time spent shopping, prepping, cooking, and kitchen labor. The fee is refunded as credit on your final confirmed booking invoice.
18% Catering Fee
This charge offsets labor and administration costs such as administrative tasks, working with rental companies, dishwashing, packing and loading for your event, site visits, shopping for food, travel time to and from your event, etc. The service charge is not a gratuity for servers and is subject to state and local tax laws.
Guest Count Guarantee

Guest Count Increases
If the guest count increases after the guaranteed guest count is received, we will be happy to try to accommodate you. KR’s Geaux-2 Catering, however reserves the right to make substitutions in menus for those guests in excess of the final guaranteed guest count.
