Bride and groom
  • Do you have preset menus and costs for your catering services?
    No, we do not have preset menus or costs. All of our private chef and catering services are unique to that event. Costs are dependent on menu, guests, location, and staffing needs. However, we do have popular dishes and sample menus for you to look at! We offer a wide variety of cuisines and can customize a menu to fit your tastes and preferences. Contact us to discuss your event and receive a personalized quote.
  • How far in advance should I book Chef Barrie for my event or private catering?
    Our services book out very quickly, especially during the summer months. We recommend getting on our calendar as soon as possible, as we book out 6 months to 2 years in advance. We typically have weekdays and a few weekends available throughout the summer, so please send us a message or give us a call to see what we have available. Planning ahead ensures that we can provide you with the highest level of service and quality cuisine for your event or private catering needs.
  • What is your service area and do you travel for events?
    We are based out of Red Lodge, MT and our primary service area is Central Montana. However, we do travel all over Montana for events, but we are limited to under 100 guests out of our immediate area. We are always excited to travel all over the USA to our clients and are also willing to travel out of the country. Please note that clients are responsible for all catering, travel, and accommodation costs.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    We accept cash, credit card, cashier's or personal check*, and any pay apps. Personal checks are acceptable with prior approval, but final payment must be made 21 days prior to your event as some checks over $5,000 will be held by banks for up to 3 weeks. Please note that personal checks may require additional time to clear before being accepted.
  • What is the payment policy for catering services with Chef Barrie Boulds?
    For all catered events, a 50% deposit is required when the menu is selected and confirmed. The remaining balance is due 14 days before your event date(s). We are open to discussing payment milestones and other payment options with pre-approval. For smaller events, payment is required immediately or one day before the event, depending on the catering services requested. If you have any questions or concerns about payment, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
  • Do I need to decide on a menu before booking Chef Barrie for private chef or catering services?
    No, you do not need to decide on a menu before booking Chef Barrie for private chef or catering services. However, we do require a $500-$1,000 Save the Date deposit to secure the date. Save the Date deposits can be transferred to another date and will be taken off of your final bill, not your 50% deposit. This deposit is non-refundable if you cancel services within 30 days of the event date.
  • Termination of Contract
    If the event is cancelled, before 90 days from your event date, a refund to total half of the 50% deposit, and any pre-paid amounts, not to include any non-refundable special orders, will be returned. If the event is cancelled, within 89 days of your event date, all deposits and prepayments are forfeited in full, and will be subject to accrued charges incurred such as food, labor cost, non-returnable items such as rentals and equipment if they so apply, and any special orders. Cancellations made 30 days or less will be charged the full agreed amount to cover our time, resources, and the loss of potential clients and income from the release of your date.
