We are seeking caterers for our 2014 Chamber Breakfasts. Below are the details of the opportunity. Please take a look at the calendar for 2014 and e-mail a couple of your preferred dates to Nancy if you would like to participate. I will let people know what dates we have placed them to avoid crossover. We do require that you be a member in good standing to partake in this opportunity but you are welcome to partner with your own vendors to showcase your product!
This gives YOU the opportunity to gain exposure for your business and possibly make a few bucks in doing so.
The Chamber will provide a $250 stipend to the host business for up to 50 people to use for purchasing and preparing food and coffee. You will receive a tentative head count the Friday before a Tuesday Breakfast (2nd Tuesday of the Month).
Expectations of Food & Beverage Quality
This is an opportunity, for current Chamber Members, to showcase YOUR food and style. Breakfast can be an elaborate spread of delicacies, home-style cooking, or pastries and coffee. All we require is that you have the proper permits to legally prepare the food and that it is ready by 7:15 am at the Sherwood Police Station, or other location as determined.
Please be mindful that there may be those in attendance with special dietary restrictions and that having items that cater to organic, gluten-free, vegan requirements, etc. are encouraged. If possible please label and prepare items with these things in mind.
Additionally, Chamber Members have an expectation that coffee will be served with Breakfast. If you do not have the means to have coffee, the stipend can be adjusted to purchase coffee at a Chamber Member location.
The presentation of the food and type of service (ala carte or served) is entirely up to you! If you want to decorate the table please feel free. Also, signage for your business is encouraged. There is an opportunity during the first few minutes of breakfast to introduce your business and the breakfast you’ve provided if you are on site and willing.
The Chamber does not own its own linens, serving silverware, plates, cups, etc. so if that is something that you need please let us know so that we can try and arrange to borrow or purchase needed items.
Thanks for your support of the Chamber!
