Turnkey Events employs a professional team of Chef's, Servers, and Bartenders and Back of the house. The staff at Turnkey Events focuses on the service and professional catering needs of our clients. The People are hand selected to deliver the most professional service an event can hope for.


Our Services include Pre-planning, setup, serving, clean-up and event management.



  • How many staff will I need?

Staffing will depend on the style of service and the number of guests at your party. Please call or email Turnkey Events. A team member will be happy to discuss the details of your event and assist you in determining the quantity of staff that's right for your event.

  • When should my staff arrive?

Generally, we suggest your staff arrive 1 hour to one hour prior to your guests' arrival. It is recommended that staff arrive earlier if they are expected to help with setup and/or décor, or if they will be preparing the meal.

  • What can your staff do? Are they experienced?

Our servers, event captains, bartenders, and cooks can execute any type of event - from elaborate weddings to intimate dinners. Having just one or an entire team of Turnkey Events staff on hand to take care of service allows you to relax and enjoy your special event.

All of our employees have an average of one year experience in the catering/food service industry. We only send our most experienced and personable staff to residential parties.

  • Do you have chefs who can create and cook a menu from scratch?

Yes, in addition to our prep cooks and grill cooks, Turnkey Events employs executive level personal chefs who can work with you to create and cook a complete customized menu for your special event.

  • Why is it advisable to order an event captain?

On larger parties or events with an intricate time line (like a formal sit down dinner) Turnkey Event Captains have the leadership experience and problem-solving skills to ensure your event runs seamlessly.

  • What are your hourly rates? Do you have an hourly minimum?

Hourly rates vary depending on the job description. There is a five hour minimum on all residential events.

  • What about gratuities?

The hourly rate does not include any gratuity for our staff. Tipping is always at your discretion. If our staff meet or exceed your expectations, we suggest a gratuity between 20%-30% depending on your level of satisfaction. You can pay the staff directly in cash, or the gratuity can be added to your final credit card.
