HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR WOOD FIRED CATERING CO. TO CATER MY EVENT?
It cost $15 per person for us to come out and cater your event with our traditional and gourmet wood fired pizza display. There is a 18% gratuity added into the total that goes to the on-sight staff who are catering the event. This covers all of your costs to have us on-sight.
HOW LONG DOES THE SERVICE LAST?
Plan for one hour of set up prior to the event’s start time, two hours of continual wood fired cooking of our pizzas and pepperoni breads, followed by one-half hour for clean-up. Additional hours of service can be added for $4 per person.
DOES EVERYONE AT MY PARTY ORDER THEIR OWN PIZZA?
All of our food is served buffet style with guest being able to come up to the table at their own leisure and choose between the 12 wood fired pizza options, pepperoni breads and house salad. All of our slices are cut into 16 slices so guests have the ability to try everything available. Guest do not order individual pizzas, but we will accommodate to personal requests if they are within our topping choices.
HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?
We are based in Gahanna, Ohio. For parties greater than 25 miles away, we charge a $2 per mile travel fee to cover staff time and vehicle costs. We will travel up to 2 hours from Gahanna. We can also price out special events that may be further away.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS OR SNOWS?
We want to do everything we can to have your party happen in rain or snow. We have a canopy that extends over our work area to protect the area in front of the oven and cover the serving area so we will plan to cook pizza unless there are severe weather conditions. If severe weather is in the forecast, we will work with you to either delay your event or reschedule for another day.
CAN YOU BRING PIZZAS INSIDE?
Yes, we can bring pizzas into the house, a tent or other covered areas that make it the most convenient for guests. We can do this in case of weather or if you would like to hire servers to run food into your party.
CAN YOU PULL UP TO MY GARAGE?
We can pull up close to a building or garage, but we cannot pull inside a building because of our wood fired oven.
PARKING AND SET UP
We prefer to park and set up in your driveway but if the ground in your backyard is level and firm enough, yes. Please be aware of the weight of the vehicle and the oven, as wet and uneven areas are not easily accessible.
CAN YOU PARK ON THE STREET IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE?
We can also park in the street, as long as the road is reasonably level and there is room for our prep station.
WHAT ARE THE SETUP DIMENSIONS?
We need a 20 ft by 10 ft area for our setup. Our oven is 10 ft long by 5 ft wide. The kitchen prep area is 10 ft by 10 ft.
