Casey Dog is very true about most of the promoters, as they must look good and provide for thier client. If they have several events you can pick the ones you want..
the way your food looks get in the door !!

I thought that was an amazing video. Loved how you guys wrote the items on the tablecloths. The way people were smiling and laughing at an outdoor event while raining was great. And I thought using your logo with the F for facebook was genius. great work and congrats.

And by the way if a certain event planner has sent you a good amount of work I see nothing wrong with showing up with an envelope. It's called the price of doing business. It's done in every industry, just ask a politician.

Thanks! Glad you liked it. I found a designer online (who lives in Argentina) who did all my branding for me. Reworked my logo, did the facebook / twitter integration with my "emblem", etc. All for $300, and that's with a design for my truck & trailer emblems as well.

I like your idea of just showing up with some dough for the owner of the company. It's not like you built that $ into the price of your meals, so I don't see how that could upset anyone.

Don't assume they want a kickback or for you to buy onto their preferred list. Some may do that, but the best make their money off the success of their events, which means that their preferred list is made up of people that they can count on to make them look good.

If they recommend you, and you fark up, they lose credibility. If you do a great job, they look good.

Catering, like a lot of creative businesses, is all about building relationships and trust.

This makes perfect sense.

A buddy of mine made that video. It was $300 for a couple hours of filming and the edit (and the event was an hour away). I got one run of revisions afterward. He also has a UAV (remote control aerial thing) and was going to include some aerial footage of the trailer, but it was raining and he couldn't set it up. I paid him the same rate anyway.

You can find him at ontaerial.com.
