CATERING 101 (YFYT STYLE)

THE WHO, WHAT, WHEN, AND WHY OF CATERING

YFYT started catering almost immediately after we started delivering food. Generally, it was tiny family gatherings, COVID weddings, 6 college buddies breaking bread, and intimate couples dinners and anniversaries. On the other hand, we have one client who had us cater a virtual-Zoom Christmas party to her whole team of 120 people by home delivery! In other words, the sky’s the limit when it comes to how a catered gig might look for you.

Since COVID restrictions have been lifted, people are cautiously returning to larger events, such as weddings with passed and served appetizers followed by a seated or buffet-style dinner, cocktail parties with heavy hors d’oeuvres, and fund raising events with finger foods. We’ve even booked two larger events for December already. At the same time, we see a lot of casual “no reason” parties – anywhere from 6 to 20 people gathering to enjoy being out and about without being too far out.

So whether you’re thinking of something NoDa casual (like our cover pic to this article) or Myers Park fancy (turn on your audio for this video), we’ve got you covered for anything between 2 and 60 guests. We generally schedule in one of three ways:

For groups of 16 to 60, we offer a “service buy out” event where you buy out our daily service with your private event, which requires a $2,000 minimum. ● This is priced at $125 per person but may vary.

For groups of 5 to 15, we provide an “after hours” event where Chef Sam arrives at your event between 6:00 and 6:30 after finishing our daily delivery service. ● Actual times depend on your location. ● This is priced at $125 per person but may vary.

For groups of 2 to 4, we provide an “after hours” event on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This is priced at $125 per person but may vary.
