Ordering

Is gratuity automatically added to my order? 2017-05-25T14:08:51+00:00

No it is not automatically added, but we do have a way through our online ordering system, that allows you to add gratuity for our team. If you do decide to add gratuity to your order, we Thank You, and want you to know that it is split between the entire team that prepares and delivers your orders.

How do I know that I ordered enough food for my guests and team? 2017-05-25T14:08:31+00:00

We get this question almost daily, and always tell our customers to “order a bit more” if your budget allows. If you are unsure and just want to talk about it, then give us a call. We cannot guarantee that we will be 100% accurate regarding your group’s hunger level, but we can tell you what other customers have ordered in your situation. We want it right, just like you do!

Is there a cancellation fee for delivery orders? 2017-05-25T14:08:07+00:00

Yes, but those fees are rare. If you cancel more than 24 hours prior to your order delivery time, then there will not be a cancellation fee. However, if you need to cancel on the day-of your order, we would appreciate a phone call as soon as the need arises to cancel the order. We can then discuss your options at that point.

Does Tasty Table do same day orders? 2017-05-25T14:07:42+00:00

Yes we do. Even though we would prefer at least 24 hours notice for all delivered orders, we will work with you to take care of your needs. We will need to ensure that you have met our minimums and are a bit flexible, but other than that, we do not charge “last minute” ordering fees like other caterers.

Can I change my order once it’s been placed? 2017-05-25T14:07:14+00:00

The best way to do this is to call us so that we are sure to get it right. Getting it right is our goal every time!

How much notice do I need before placing an order for delivery? 2017-05-25T14:06:57+00:00

While we love having at least 24 hours notice when placing an order, we do understand that things “pop-up” at the last minute. If you need something “today”, we prefer a phone call first, and then we will do our best to work to accommodate your need.

Do you require a deposit? 2017-05-25T14:06:36+00:00

If you are ordering a delivered lunch or meal, we prefer that you use our online ordering system which will capture your payment when you order. For all other orders, or for social events or weddings, we will require a deposit, which does vary depending upon the event type. Call our sales team to learn more.

When can I place orders for delivery? 2017-05-25T14:05:51+00:00

Our online ordering system is available 24 hours a day. We do prefer at least 24 hours notice, but know that being flexible is important in our business and important to our clients.

Is there an order minimum? 2017-05-25T14:05:32+00:00

We do have minimum order amounts, and most of them are listed when you place your order online, however, if you are unsure if you meet our minimums, please give us a call. If you are hosting an event of 100 guests or more, give us a call and we can discuss special menus and pricing.

Delivery

Is your staff able to make on-site accommodations if requested? 2017-05-25T14:13:31+00:00

We will do our best to accommodate all special requests while on-site, because we want everything to be perfect for you every time. If we can do it, then we will. If not, then we will work with you to get it as close to perfect as we can. We always prefer to accommodate requests before we leave our shop, so call us as soon as you can to give us the time and information to ensure that it we deliver exactly what you need.

What does your staff handle when on-site? 2017-05-25T14:10:49+00:00

Our staff are professionals who work for Tasty Table Catering, not for a delivery service, so you can be sure that they will handle whatever situation you have. Our team will set-up the order in the location provided, lay-out the main items, sides, desserts, beverages, and serviceware. We love it when our clients say Hi, and are there to answer any questions that our delivery team may have while on-site.

How far can Tasty Table travel to? 2017-05-25T14:10:17+00:00

Tasty Table Catering delivers to the Main Line, Center City, and the Philly Suburbs. On occasion, we have delivered food for meetings of 75 guests or more to locations outside of our 40 minute range. These deliveries are generally from clients who love our food, but have moved locations and want us to take care of their special celebration or an important meeting. Call us to discuss your needs and where you are located. If you think you might be out of our usual delivery range.

What happens if a delivery is late? 2017-05-25T14:09:57+00:00

If you have not seen our delivery driver yet, and it is 15 minutes prior to your meeting start time, please call our office at 610.251.0265. We will contact your delivery driver and call you right back.

Where do you deliver to? 2017-05-25T14:09:39+00:00

We do prefer to deliver no more than 40 minutes from our location for corporate drop-off and deliveries, because we would rather keep our vehicle emissions down as much as possible in our industry.

What is your delivery policy? 2017-05-25T14:09:14+00:00

We understand that every delivery is different, so we do not have a set list of rules or policies. Again, we would like at least 24 hours notice for drop-offs and deliveries, and our minimum order amount met. Please help us help you by ensuring that all delivery information is as accurate and detailed as possible. Beyond that, we will take care of the rest.
