FAQ

How can Three Tomatoes Catering help me with my event?

In addition to assisting with your food planning, presentation and staffing needs, we will be glad to order your rentals, flowers, liquor, etc., if you do not already have a planner or would like additional assistance. Our specialty is customization of events and menus to meet each client’s unique vision.

What types of services do you provide?

Three Tomatoes Catering is a full- service caterer. We handle your entire event from setup to cleanup. We offer our clients a team of highly trained professionals, including a field chef, event manager, wait/service staff and bartenders to oversee every aspect of your event so you will have the freedom to enjoy yourself and your guests. In addition, we provide delivery, setup and client pickup options to meet your needs. Please ask one of our Three Tomatoes Catering professionals for details.

What type of uniform do your employees wear at events?

Our professional service staff is customarily uniformed in black pants, long-sleeved black dress shirt, black long tie and long black aprons. Other arrangements may be made on request, e.g., khaki and pastels, Hawaiian shirts, tuxedos, or specialty uniforms may be ordered for a fee.

What does your bar package include?

All bar needs can be provided with our packages including basic glassware, mixers, soft drinks, mineral water, ice, cocktail napkins, bar fruit and garnishes, plus sweet vermouth, dry vermouth, and bitters for cocktails. We can accommodate specialty drinks, such as margaritas, if arrangements are made in advance with your event planner.  

What is your alcohol policy?

We are happy to assist you in ordering and arranging for the delivery of your liquor; however, because caterers are by Colorado law prohibited from selling alcohol, the vendor will invoice it to you directly. Please consult with a Three Tomatoes Catering professional for more information. (Liquor cannot be stored at Three Tomatoes Catering.)

Is there a corkage fee?

We do not charge a “Corkage” fee. Our service staff will be happy to uncork and serve beverages to your guests.

Can you arrange for the rental of dishware, flatware, glassware, linens, tents, etc.?

Three Tomatoes Catering professionals work closely with the top rental companies in Colorado to provide each client with a wide variety of rental options. The relationships we have established with these vendors allow us to cover any of our clients’ rental needs, ranging from classic designs to cutting edge styles that can add distinction to any event. We will gladly place your rental orders and arrange for delivery, set-up, and pick-up services. The equipment rentals and related services are generally billed directly to the client by the vendors without additional markup.
