What makes your catering service different from other services in town?
Rosie’s Italian Grille has built a solid reputation in Northwest Ohio for over 30 years by offering an exceptional quality cuisine and service to each of our clients. Not only do we have the best chef in town, our dishes are prepared with superior quality ingredients that are both fresh and seasonal. Doing business the right way has a certain level of overhead. And we would not have it any other way. You deserve the absolute best and that is what we will do for you.
What is the catering fee on my invoice for?
A catering fee, determined by how elaborate your event will be, applies to all events whereas on site staff is present. The catering charge is an industry standard fee that covers all the behind the scenes preparation and time incurred planning your event. This fee covers everything from the labor to produce the food for your event to the wear & tear on our catering equipment, delivery costs, insurance expenses, to the time we spend with you revising your menu. Event staff hired for your event is paid hourly and you will see a flat rate per staff member listed on your quote.
Is gratuity part of the catering fee?
The catering fee is not a gratuity that is shared amongst on-site catering staff. Gratuity is not included in your bill (unless you direct us to do so), nor is it required. It is, however, graciously accepted by our staff for a job well done. If you’d like to add gratuity on for the staff at your event, we most commonly see tips ranging between 15-20%.
