Gance’s is a off-premise catering company working with many halls in Broome, Tioga & Chenango Counties. We can work at your location or we’d be happy to recommend one of ours.
Unless your event site has its own chef and dining area, you are allowed to choose your caterer. Gance’s will contact your facility to find out any other requirements they may have for caterers. When you select your facility, please make certain that there is enough time for catering set-up and clean up. The amount of time needed will depend on the services we are asked to provide.
We can create a custom menu from our many selections, taking into consideration such factors as the time of day of the event, season, and clients’ special dietary needs. Discuss any budget restrictions you may have. We can make recommendations that that will help your dollar go further.
Our food is prepared and stored in our licensed, full-service kitchen in Binghamton NY, where the highest standards for food service preparation, handling, and storage are constantly monitored and maintained.
For your event, you may need tables, chairs, linen, china, glassware, stemware, flatware, etc. You may either arrange for them yourself or have Gance’s provide them. Our Event Planning Checklist is a comprehensive list of items you may need for your event.
Our serving pieces, utensils, and equipment for food and beverages are included in the food total. We can provide dinner service for 400 guests for a minimal dishwashing fee.
Most event sites will have, at least, tables and chairs. The remaining items must be brought in. If Gance’s provides the rentals, we charge rental company price. We take responsibility for correct and timely deliveries and pick-up, required rinsing, sorting, and storing of the rented items
We can arrange food samples for your hard to make choices. We will discuss the particulars – time, cost ect. with each client individually.
Chefs, servers, game helpers, parking attendants and grill workers are all available – prices by the hour will be quoted on request.
Gance’s will decorate the food serving tables using our items, the host’s, or a combination of both. We have many decorations and “build ups” that we can provide to make your presentation as beautiful or theme-orientated as our food.
Other aspects of the event, such as floral arrangements and entertainment, may be provided by the host of the event or Gance’s. Gance’s has many recommended resources which we would be happy to share with our customers.
