A credit card and deposit is required to reserve the function date.  This card will be used, the next business day, to pay the balance of the function.  All dates will not be reserved until the deposit has been received.  In the event that the caterer must seek legal remedies to complete execution of this contract, the client agrees to pay all attorney fees for both parties.
  • A $50.00 billing fee will be added onto all bills that are not paid in full the day of the event unless otherwise pre-approved.

  • All applicable state and local taxes will be imposed and paid by the client.

Left-Over Food

  • When Frohling’s Catering is on location to serve food, they usually carry more than they expect to serve.  When off-site for a long period of time, they have extended food temperatures and holding conditions to a point that they will not release leftover food to the client.The South Dakota Department of Health requires this policy.  We trust you will co-operate.  If the client would like to purchase additional food, arrangements need to be made five business days prior to the event.
