FAQ's and services

Minimum Numbers?

Minimum numbers apply for all or our catering services.  65 people minimum for breakfast and lunch, and 100 people minimum for our buffet service and weddings.

What do we provide?

All of our menu packages include top quality disposable compostable ware, set/take down, travel within the Great Edmonton area, servicing of the buffet or food truck staff, black linens for the buffet tables, and all equipment needed.

Extra staffing available?

Yes, we can generally provide additional staffing for services such as clearing of tables, coffee service, etc. with adequate notice.

Do we need power & water?

We are fully self contained if we need to be!  Although we have a noise reduced generator, plugging in to power is nice but not necessary if it is not available. We always have our own fresh water, and have a grey water tank in the trailer.

Any silverware or china options?

Absolutely. We have a small fee to scrape and crate dinnerware rentals, and can put together a custom quote for rentals if you would like us to also provide that as a service.

Are we Earth Friendly?

Since we started our company in 2013, we have proudly used compostable and biodegradeable disposable ware, and we have always used paper straws! 

Forms of Payment?

Lots of options for payment!  E-transfer to info@nrthfork.ca, cheque, cash and credit card payment via Square with a 3.25% fee

Corkage/alcohol supply?

We are a family based business, so we do not provide bar tending services or supply alcohol or liquor licensing.

Can we accomodate dietary needs/restrictions?

Gluten free and vegetarian options are usually available with most menu selections. Allergies need a special consult, but we generally are able to accommodate.

Do we charge a set gratuity?

In keeping with the intended nature of gratuity, we have kept it as a discretionary payment, and do not automatically charge it in.

How much space do we need?

Our mobile kitchen/trailer is 21 feet long, plus the length of a truck. If we are serving food truck style, we also need a bit of space for the buffet tables, menu board and drink coolers.

Additional serving time available?

We offer 1 hour of service with our basic lunch packages, but if you need to offer meal service over an extended period of time we charge out per hour, and the price is variable depending on your event and menu. Buffet service is open for 1.5 hours.
