Special Event Wait Staff and Bartenders
Our professional service staff team has years of event experience and will pamper your guests with the service you expect. From the set up to the cleanup, they’ll take care of every little detail. We take on the work and worry while you enjoy your event with your guests.
Wait Staff is quoted by the hour with an average event requiring 6 hours of time. The time needed for your event depends on what you need us to do and where the venue is. Most events require at least 1 to 1-1/2 hours to set up and about 1 hour to take down. Besides setting up your food and beverages, you can also ask us to arrange things like:
Place Your Table Centerpieces (or order them through us)
Prepare Guest Giveaways and Gifts
Decorate the Venue
Put out Place Cards or Reserved Signs for Guests of Honor
Our professional bartending team has years of event experience serving hundreds of guests with any alcoholic beverages you’ve decided to offer your guests. They are certified by the Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission and are trained to manage any alcohol you’ve decided to provide. For your protection, they will control how much is being consumed and avoid over-serving guests, creating a potential liability for you.
We can also provide Wait staff and Bartenders separate from our catering. If you’re in need of wait staff for a reception that you, family members and friends are providing the food, we can be there to serve your guests in style.
