STEP #1 OF THE PROCESS
Contact KNK though our contact form on our website under the contact tab.
Submit your $500 catering deposit and deposit form to add your event date to our calendar. We will hold on to your deposit until the completion of your event. Barring any overages your deposit will be returned approximately two weeks after the completion of your event. We will mail a check to your home address.
THE DEPOSIT IS NOT CREDITED TO YOUR OVERALL INVOICE BALANCE.
Once the deposit has been collect you may schedule a complimentary six course tasting. Tastings are held Tuesday - Thursdays at our home kitchen in Waimea Valley (59-865 Kamehameha Highway Haleiwa HI 96712). The first tasting beings at 12pm and the last tasting begins at 330pm. We typically cannot host tastings on weekends as we are busy with our event schedule.
If you would like to schedule a tasting prior to submitting your deposit you may do so. Our tasting fee is $150 per couple (each additional guest is $25 per person). If after you submit your tasting fee you choose to book our services we will credit the $150 tasting fee towards your deposit so you only have to pay the difference of $350.
We can also schedule a cake tasting which is $50 per couple. This fee is for the tasting only and does not apply to any invoices or deposits.
STEP #2 OF THE PROCESS
Once your appetizers, dinner menu, dessert menu, bar choices, and service style are finalized we will sign the contact. At the signing of the contract 25% of your overall balance is due.
The contract is signed on minimums:
Minimum guest count (ex. if your estimated guest count is 100PAX I recommend signing the contract for 90PAX)
Minimum event menu

While you are not able to dip below your minimums you are able to increase until 14 days prior to your event date.
THERE ARE NO ADJUSTMENTS AND CHANGES ALLOWED WITHIN 14 DAYS OF YOUR EVENT DATE
STEP #3 OF THE PROCESS
Your final guest count is due 14 days prior to your event date.
Your remaining balance of 75% is due 14 days prior to your event date.
Barring any overages, we will mail your deposit back to your home address.
