As far as food goes, we are super flexible. You can choose one of our trusted preferred caterers or introduce us to a new one for our approval.

  1. Full Service Caterer A full service caterer is required, not only to provide and serve food, they take care of bussing tables, attend to guests needs throughout the event, set up and clean up, and take the trash with them, as per venue caterer policy. If you select a caterer that is not on our Preferred List, the caterer must contact us, make application, and be approved by Hearth House before you book them.

Limited Service Caterer Limited Service Caterers are not allowed at Hearth House as they only bring in the food and don’t stay to serve it or clean it up, or set up the tables and chairs, or remove trash. If a Limited Service Caterer is mistakenly hired, Hearth House approved service staff must be hired and paid for by the client so to meet catering requirements.  The service staff must work for a company with a Retail Food License.
