Terms and Conditions:
ON ACCEPTANCE By visiting the website www.1sthotdogco.weebly.com viewing, accessing or otherwise using any of the services or information created, collected, compiled or submitted to www.1sthotdogco.weebly.com, you agree to be bound by the following Terms and Conditions of Service. If you do not want to be bound by our Terms your only option is not to visit, view or otherwise use the services of www.1sthotdogco.weebly.com. You understand, agree and acknowledge that these Terms constitute a legally binding
agreement between you and www.1sthotdogco.weebly.com and that your use of www.1sthotdogco.weebly.com shall indicate your conclusive acceptance of this
The caterer’s obligation in terms hereof shall be to render the service and to deliver the goods as set out in the quotation specified. The caterer undertakes to render the service and deliver the goods materially in accordance with the specifications set out in the quotation, but does not represent or warrant that the service or the goods will necessarily accord precisely with the client’s subjective wishes or expectations or that they will satisfy the whims of any fastidious or overly sensitive person. The client acknowledges that the process of preparing and serving foodstuffs and prepared beverages is such that a precise result cannot always be guaranteed.
The client undertakes in terms hereof:
That the venue shall be available, readily accessible and ready for the function and that no material changes that would affect the delivery of products by the caterer of the rending of the service shall have occurred after the caterer’s inspection of the payment to the caterer of:
a deposit of 70% of the proposed total cost within 48 hours of accepting the quotation.
The balance is payable to 1st Hot Dog Co within a minimum of 5 working days (1 week) before the event/function date. Should the client cancel 1st Hot Dog Co services for whatever reason after accepting the agreement, the 70% deposit is non-refundable in its entirety.
Your failure to pay the balance due on time (5 working days before the event) shall be considered a cancellation of this Catering Contract. Any Event booked less than 10 days from the Event Date must be paid in full at the time of booking.
• All deposits by Client are non-refundable unless otherwise agreed by 1st Hot Dog Co in writing and are payable no later than 48 hours after signing the Quotation
• No event is deemed as booked and confirmed until the deposit has been paid, proof received and email confirmation sent by us.
Failure by the client to pay the booking deposit within the specified time will result in the client being in direct violation and default of the contract, at this time, the agreed booking(s) will be cancelled by 1st Hot Dog Co and the client will be liable for any cancellation fees incurred.
If you do not give 1st Hotdog Co a written notice of cancellation more than 60 days prior to your Event, you acknowledge that 1st Hotdog Co will suffer damages (such as the lost opportunity to book other events on the date of your Event, purchase of food and supplies, expenses of the services of 1st Hotdog Co staff, etc.), and that
the amount of actual damages caused by the late cancellation of this Catering Contract would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to quantify.
For the late cancellation of this Catering Contract (60 days or less prior to your Event), 1st Hotdog Co will retain the deposit as liquidated damages. In the event that you cancel this Catering Contract within 10 days of the Event Date, for whatever reason or cause (including without limitation Acts of God, weather, cancellation by location, etc.), you will remain obligated to pay the entire contract price, less the Event Fee, as liquidated damages to 1st Hotdog Co. You agree that these liquidated damages represent a fair and reasonable estimate of the losses and expenses 1st Hot Dog Co would sustain as a result of late cancellation of this Catering Contract, given that actual damages are uncertain and not susceptible of exact measurement as of the date of this Catering Contract.
Refunds on any accrued cost that falls under the event coordination services and rentals will be determined at time of cancellation.
Once this action has been taken, 1st Hot Dog Co cannot guarantee availability of our services.
We reserve the right to cancel the Event if you fail to perform any obligation to us under this agreement. If we cancel the Event due to your non-performance, we will retain the deposit and any other amounts paid to us. We will cancel the event and retain any money received from you if you fail to pay any amount owed to us when due.
1st Hot Dog Co is entitled to additional remuneration for services to be rendered or goods to be delivered in terms of the client’s subsequent instructions and which are not initially set out in the quotation.
The caterer shall moreover be compensated for damages due to any breakages and theft of its equipment, cutlery and the like which may occur during the event. For purposes aforesaid the caterer shall issue additional Invoices for the client and which shall be payable on demand. The additional products and services and/or damages, shall be priced at the caterer’s then current and usual rate. Such additional and/or subsequent Invoices shall upon them being issued, be deemed to be incorporated in this agreement and the terms and conditions hereof shall apply mutatis mutandis. This clause shall not be construed to exclude the caterer’s right not to accept such subsequent instructions by the client.
In the event that the goods and the service are to include sundry items and gifts, such items shall be priced at cost plus a reasonable mark-up.
If a lesser number of people attend the function than the number reflected in the Invoice, the client shall nevertheless remain liable for payment of the full consideration as therein set out.
In the event of a cancellation by the client, all outstanding payments will be immediately due and payable by the client. Unless agreed by 1st Hot Dog Co to delay event to an agreed future date.
In the event of a cancellation after a confirmed booking has been made by the client, a 25% Cancellation Fee will be charged on the total amount quoted for. The remaining deposit will be refunded to the client, unless otherwise discussed and agrees upon in writing between the 1st Hotdog Co. and the Client.
In the event of smaller functions, activities, Lunches, etc. cancellation needs to be done within 48 hrs of the agreed delivery. 25% cancellation fee will apply here.
The Client shall reimburse 1st Hot Dog Co for any unexpected out of pocket expenses, including additional mileage incurred by 1st Hot Dog Co not stipulated in the agreement.
1st Hot Dog Co shall not be liable to Client or anyone claiming by, through, or under Client for any error of judgment or mistake of law or for any loss, except a loss resulting from willful bad faith or gross negligence on the part of 1st Hot Dog Co.
You, the user, accordingly indemnify and hold us harmless against all and any loss, liability, actions, suites, proceedings, costs, demands and damages of all and every kind, (including direct, indirect, special or consequential damages), and whether in an action based on contract, negligence or any other action, arising out of or in connection with the failure or delay in the performance of the Products and Services offered on this website, or the use of the information and/or images available on this website.
All leftover food that has been served at any stage is to be discarded including any untouched meals or plates from buffets. Our catering staff will not leave any leftover food unless there is a prior arrangement - if this is the case, a leftover food waiver form will be signed. A prior arrangement must include a signed agreement releasing the 1st Hotdog Co. and its staff from any liability. This is not open to flexibility or negotiation.
Our failure to exercise any particular rights or provision of these terms and conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision, unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing.
