Public events are one where the guests will pay for their own meals. In these situations Buzz's requires a sponsor to agree to a vanishing minimum of $400 an hour minimum of 2 hours.
If the meals served total more than the minimum the sponsor does not owe anything. If the meals served equal to less than the minimum the sponsor must pay the difference in the meals served.
If the event is appropriate for a food truck there shouldn't be any risk of the sponsor needing to cover the balance. If the sponsor believes there is too much risk, than we feel there is too much risk to agree to serve.
If you prefer to only purchase food please consider our catering service.
Buzz's will set the menu for public events, but the sponsor may request dishes from the list below they wish to be served.
All entrees are served with Hawaiian style white rice and Island Mac Salad.
Yes. BHG is proud to say we have earned a 4 Star rating from Green Dining Alliance. All meals will be provided on biodegradable plates along with biodegradable utensils. If you have opted to provide your guests the option of To-Go packaging there is an additional fee as our To-Go packaging is also biodegradable and not always stocked unless requested.
The fees for our truck to be on site are not based on food cost. It is our experience that at the end of the service if the host requests the balance in food we could easily extend the time into additional fees at $200 a half hour.
This happens because we cook based on the window demand and shut down the cooking equipment 30 minutes ahead of departure to begin cooling. If we need to start the cooking equipment back up it can add 30-60 minutes to our time on site.
It's common for the host to be preoccupied with entertaining and not have the opportunity to dine themselves. It's best for the host to advise us in advance of how many meals they would like set aside for their enjoyment later. We will gladly prepare these dishes and provide them during the course of service.
It's very common for private events to be conducted in a public area such as a park, etc. If this is the case you may want to use a ticket program so we know your guests will served and those without a ticket will be advised it is a private event. Advise us in advance if you would like to use a ticket program. It is the host's responsibility to provide the tickets and distribute them to their guests.
Note: Ticket programs can also be used if the host would like to control the number of meals. Experience has shown guests will return to our truck two or three times to taste our delicious food. If that is a concern by all means advise us you will be using a ticket program.
No, unless the expected number of diners is more than we had planned for. For this reason it's important for the host to do their best to provide an accurate guest count. Keep in mind people often get more than one dish.
What can happen, and does happen, is we run out of a particular entree. For instance if we are planning on 60 guests and there are three entrees being served we will prepare approximately 25 servings of each entree. If a particular entree is having a hot streak we can run out of it.
As exciting as it is to have the food truck at your event, the cost involved doesn't always fit into people's budget. In those cases we suggest taking advantage of our catering services.
