Policy and Procedure

You must submit a guaranteed headcount no later than 10 days before the date of the event. Confirmed number of guests may not be reduced thereafter. You will be charged for the number of confirmed guests regardless of how many guests actually attend. If additional guests arrive beyond the confirmed number of guests, an additional per person charge will be added to the bill. A credit card will be kept on file should this occur. You will have the option of paying with a credit card or issue a check to Savoie’s Catering. In the event you are unable to confirm the number of guests, Savoie’s will prepare food for the estimated number of guests on our banquet function sheet and you will be responsible for paying such bill.

Guests will be admitted to the banquet room and expected to depart at the time stated on the catering contract. If the host decides to extend the time of the event, with approval of Savoie’s, an additional charge of $100 per hour will be added to the bill.

Layout will be approved by Gerald Savoie. If on the day of the event you decide that the previously approved layout does not fit your needs, you will be charged $10 per table and $2 per chair to accommodate your new layout. Savoie’s reserves the right to move a function to another banquet room if the number of guests decrease.

The banquet is billed at $100 an hour Sunday through Friday. On Saturday the banquet is billed at $600 for four hours and $100 for every additional hour thereafter. There is a $4,000 minimum food purchase on Saturdays only for events held at “The Catering Place.” No food or beverage is allowed to be brought into the facility.

You may provide puzzles/games for children but no crayons or markers are allowed. Children with gum or candy will not be allowed in the facility.

All catering functions are subject to service charges and applicable state and local taxes. A 4% processing fee will be applied to all credit card payments. A 20% service charge will be applied to the final bill. A deposit is required for all catering functions unless prior payment arrangements have been established with Savoie’s. Deposits are applied to the final bill but are not refundable. Full payment must be made 15 days before the date of the event.

Decorations are allowed with prior approval of management. Absolutely nothing may be affixed to the walls, ceilings or furniture of the Catering Place without Gerald Savoie’s prior approval. The use of any nails, pins, tacks or tape is specifically forbidden. Any damage incurred will be billed to the host and charged on the credit card we have on file.  No birdseed, rice, confetti or sparklers are allowed inside or outside of the facility and are strictly prohibited. Bubbles and Real Rose Petals are the only items allowed to be thrown for departure of the Bride and Groom. Anything else used without prior approval of management will result in a minimum clean up fee of $200.

Savoie’s is a NON-SMOKING facility. Ashtrays are provided for guests to smoke on the patio and the front porch. If any guests violates this policy they will immediately be asked to leave and a fine equaled to the deposit amount will be billed and charged to the credit card on file.

If it happens a second time, the event will cease and everyone will be asked to leave Savoie’s premises. Any guests found sneaking alcohol onto the premises will be asked to leave immediately.
