Here we have answered some of the most common questions. Please let us know if we've missed anything by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the form at the bottom.
Q: I can buy candy - why shouldn't I just do-it-myself?
A: Because there is far more involved in assembling a candy buffet than you may first realize. You will need to buy candy in very large quantities - often at high retail prices. You will also have to purchase a variety of large glassware, easily spending $100+ on containers you will have no use for after the event. Then, you will have to make sure someone is available to set it up and tear it down for you. Additionally, you'll need to come up with labels or a candy menu and take-away bags or boxes to complete the display. Finally, some venues will not permit customer-provided food.
Q: How much candy can I expect to receive per guest?
A: The standard serving-size is 4-6oz. We will provide ample candy to allow your guests to enjoy the display, and prevent it from looking depleted too quickly. And remember - you get to keep the leftovers!
Q: Can I consider this my favor to my guests?
A: Absolutely! Guests love a consumable favor, and this one is interactive. Not only will your guests enjoy selecting their favorites, they will have the opportunity to further mix and mingle with each other. They can enjoy some at the party, and then take some home for later. A perfect combination.
Q: Can I provide some of my own candy?
A: No. For food service and sanitation reasons, we cannot allow you to supply any of your own candy. However, if there is a specific candy you want to include, please tell us, and we'll do our best to work it into the display for you!
Q: If I provide the linens, will I receive a discount?
A: Unfortunately, no. Our package is built to include the linens, and there is not a separate charge that can be deducted. We are happy to supply coordinating linens, or work with those you provide.
Q: Why is there a limit on how much chocolate I can select?
A: Because chocolate is more costly, we limit its use in our buffets to keep the base serving price lower for you. Should you wish to have more chocolate - or even a buffet made up of only chocolate - we can do that. It will simply require a custom price quotation.
Q: Can you do anything other than candy?
A: Definitely. We are happy to provide cupcakes or mini cupcakes, flavored popcorns, savory items such as nuts or crackers... just let us know what you have in mind.
Q: Can you do a Kosher buffet?
A: Absolutely. Many candies are available as certified Kosher, and we will be happy to build your display honoring that requirement.
Q: Can you accommodate other dietary restrictions?
A: In many cases, yes. Please let us know your specific needs, and we will do our best to meet them!
Q: My event isn't in Indy - will you travel there?
A: Yes, we do travel. Our standard service area is quite large, encompassing the entire Indianapolis Metro area, plus quite a bit more. We have a map that displays our standard area on our Pricing page. If your event falls outside that area, you will incur a travel charge.
