Our Catering Services - Menu Links Only
We will out-grill, out-roast, out-toast, and out-host any competitor! Our social and corporate catering and party rental division has been doing business locally since 1947 – from backyard events to elegant weddings, class reunions to the legendary Beaver Stadium – we’ve been there and done that. We know the in’s and out’s and what it takes to make your event successful.
We deliver, set up the food/beverage service, and arrange for a return/pickup time for any reusable hardware provided (chafers, linen, platters, etc).
We deliver, set up, and stay onsite for the food/beverage service portion of the event. An appropriate number of service attendants are included for groups of 40 or more. Groups of 39 or less are billed at $45 per hour per service attendant. Service attendants are billed only for the additional service provided during the event.
We prepare your menu and roundup all of the supplies. You pick it all up. Stack-able Cardboard Hot Tray Transport Boxes will be provided at $3.00 / tray to keep items warm and easy to transport in your vehicle. There is no surcharge for small groups for Curbside Pickups. There is no gratuity billed for Curbside Pickups.
All buffets are served with disposable paperware. Please add $1.00 per person for ecoware, $1.50 per person for upscale plastic service, $3.00 per person for abbreviated service, or $5.00 per person for china service. Appropriate table covering for food/beverage tables are included.
Group Size Information
We reserve the right to quote an additional surcharge based on the group size:
- $2.00 surcharge per guest will be added for groups of 15-24 guests
- $3.00 surcharge per guest will be added for groups of 14 guests or less
6% sales tax and 18-25% gratuities will be added to your bill, based on the menu selected.
We require a deposit of $350.00 plus 25% of any equipment rental for events. We also require a signed estimate and/or contract. We prefer NOT to handle money off-site – full payment or a credit card is required prior to your event, or a 10% service charge will be added to the total. We accept Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express. A late charge of 2% per month will apply on all past due invoices.
A final guarantee of attendance is required four (4) business days in advance of the function.
All food charges are subject to 6% sales tax unless an exemption form is provided in advance. Gratuity rates vary, based upon the menu selected and the size of your group. See the Group Size Information section of this page for more details.
We can do all of the above with our catering services, based on your needs and budget.
We absolutely can, but in order for us to provide the special foods for these guests, we will need to be notified in advance. Please communicate to us their specific needs – the more specific, the better. Pricing may vary, based on the products required to meet the dietary restriction(s).
Yes, there will be a 25% discount for children 6 to 12 years of age. There is no charge for children 5 and under. However, we do need a count of how many children will be attending and their ages. These discounts apply for when children will be eating from the same buffet as the rest of the guests. Special plated meals for children (such as chicken fingers and fries) will be charged at $9.95 per meal.
In compliance with standards set by the Board of Health, prepared leftover food is disposed of properly. This eliminates the concern of foodborne illness caused by improperly stored or transported food.
Since our vehicles transport food, we will not utilize them to transport trash. In most cases, trash removal is the responsibility of the venue, and in other cases it is the responsibility of the group contracting the venue space. Please check with the venue to ensure that they will have an adequate number of trash/recycling/composting receptacles available
All prices are quoted for 25 or more guests. We do have a surcharge structure for small groups under 25 guests. A $2.00 surcharge per guest will be added for groups of 15 to 24 guests. A $3.00 surcharge per guest will be added for groups 14 or less. Higher gratuity rates also apply for smaller groups.
If you are renting a venue, please check with them for their alcohol policies. In most cases, it is your responsibility to supply all of the alcoholic beverages. Hoag’s Catering can provide certified bartenders, supplies, and mixers if you so choose. Bartenders will be billed at the rate of $75.00/hr for the first bartender and $35.00/hr for the second bartender, with a minimum of four hours per event. This billable time also includes any setup, teardown, or travel time.
Available mixers include soda (regular and diet), tonic, club soda, orange juice, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, ginger ale, ice, and fruit garnishes. Beverage napkins and disposable cups or glassware can be provided. Customized supply packages can be designed to suit your needs and budget. If you are supplying your own alcohol, we are not permitted to transport it for you, or store it at our facility.
We are required to abide by the regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Therefore, we will not serve persons under the age of 21 or persons appearing to be visibly intoxicated. We reserve the right (regardless of the extent of the services in which we are providing) to close a bar, or deal with intoxicated or underage guests to the fullest extent.
Bar supplies and mixers are priced as follows:
- With disposable service – $5.50 per guest (4 hours)
- With glass service – $7.50 per guest (4 hours)
- Please add $1.00 per person for each additional hour
Our service staff is only available for events in which we handle the catering at. We do not contract out staff.
