Fifteen (15) calendar days prior to the event, the Caterer will need to have the final number of guests to be served. This final number will be used to purchase fresh ingredients for our kitchen production and order equipment and appropriate staff for the event. After this date, the final guest count can only increase but not decrease. Any increases in guest count will be subject to additional costs. The Client will only be charged for the guaranteed number of guests served. If there are more guests attending the event than the guaranteed guest count, the Caterer reserves the right to charge the Client accordingly.



Due to the fluctuating cost of food items, menu prices are subject to change within fourteen (14) days of the event. If a drastic change in the menu cost occurs, the Client has two (2) options:

a. Client will pay the additional cost based on the current adjusted price, or

b. The client can substitute another menu item (s) to maintain the agreed-upon per-person price.



Home Bites will provide menu items as outlined in Appendix A

Due to the weight or the Home Bites Food Truck, it requires a firm, LEVEL surface for parking and adequate space (at least 31 feet long, 12 feet wide and 15 feet overhead) in which to operate.
