SPECIAL EVENTS

When catering a special event, it is critical for the caterer to understand that although catering special events is commonplace, to the customer it can be the most important day of the year or more. DRJ is a family owned and operated catering service and we take pride in making sure that we maintain our focus on you from beginning to end. We specialize in causal, fun and laid back events such as backyard pig roasts or BBQ’s but we will also put on our tuxedos and white gloves and serve you.

Some examples of special occasions we will make sure are handled with the utmost care are:

  • Movie openings
  • Store Grand Openings
  • Bat and Bar Mitzvahs
  • Anniversaries
  • Communions
  • Baptisms and Christenings
  • Kosher
  • Halal
  • Weddings
  • Birthdays
  • Reunions
  • and many more

The majority of our events take place in New Jersey, but we are more than willing to travel anywhere we are needed, whether in NJ or beyond state lines. It is no problem. We also try and accommodate any budget, and we will keep working with you to try and get the service you deserve to accommodate the the price you are looking for. If we can make it happen, we will. For better pricing please consider doing an event during the week or on a Friday evening or Sunday. Saturdays are prime time and generally the most costly.

ALCOHOL

No off premise caterer in New Jersey can provide alcohol as liquor licenses are not portable in the Garden State. However, we will gladly provide bartenders and advise you as to what you may need for bar setup.

LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS

We will try and accommodate any last minute parties you may have. You may have to be flexible with the day or the time but we can generally work something out for you last minute needs.

TIME CONSIDERATIONS

We will stay as long as you want us to but generally we serve an hour of appetizers, an hour and a half of the main meal and then dessert. Most parties last on average 6-10 hours depending on service required.

DEPOSITS & CANCELLATION FEES

We do have a booking fee which is 15% of the food and the tax in order to secure the date. When you give us the final number 10 days prior to the event we will send you an invoice and the balance is due 7 days prior if using a check or credit card or the day of the event if you want to pay cash before we setup. Unfortunately since we only do a maximum of 2 events per day and we are generally completely booked, we cannot offer any rain dates. Just note that we are prepared to cook rain or shine. In the event of a cancellation prior to the final number being given you will unfortunately forfeit your booking fee.
