K&W Cafeteria Server Handing Food to Customer
Frequently Asked Questions

Does K&W provide tables and tablecloths?

Yes, if you are choosing chinaware, K&W will provide black linens for the buffet tables and black linen napkins. You can specify that you would like white linens. We do not provide linens for your guest tables. We suggest that you work with a local rental company for these items.

Does K&W serve the food?

Yes, if you want the food served by our staff, rather than guests serving themselves, we charge for the additional staff, which is $14/hour per staff member for a minimum of 4 hours ($56 per staff member). Our pricing structure accounts for staff to set up your buffet, replenish the buffet line as needed, assist any elderly persons or children and clean up the catering at your event. We find that buffet lines typically run better if both sides are available. This is especially true with larger head counts.

What do your paper goods and chinaware look like?

Our chinaware is a white porcelain plate, stainless steel cutlery, and a glass cup. It is the same chinaware that we use in our cafeterias. Our stainless cutlery has the K&W logo imprinted on the handle. The silverware is rolled in a black linen napkin (unless you specify white). The catering department, per your request, can send photos of these items. You can fill out a this form to request.

Does K&W serve alcohol?

No, K&W does not have an alcohol license.

What if I want to use my own paper goods or china?

Yes, we are happy for you to incorporate any of your own paper products or chinaware. We see this often with both birthdays and weddings.

How far will you deliver?

Our standard delivery fee is $25.00 for anywhere within 10 miles of the cafeteria your catering order is being fulfilled. We charge $2 per mile over 10 miles. If your location is more than an hour away, we must consider our schedule before committing.

Does K&W have anything to serve for cocktail hour?

Yes, you can select one of two options during cocktail or social hours. First, we have a Party Platter menu (view here) that is easy and popular among our guests. The second option is to add an additional hour to your buffet event at an additional charge of $14 per staff member.

What if I don’t need dessert?

You can replace your dessert with one additional side.

Can K&W cut my wedding cake?

Yes, we are happy to cut and plate a wedding cake for you from an outside vendor.

I don’t need staff for the event. I just need the food. Can we order that way?

Yes, we get this question often. K&W’s Build a Meal menu is perfect for events that do not require staff to be present. This menu can be found on our website here.
