Frequently Asked Questions

There are so many catering companies out there! How do I know which one I should use?
 

The first question you should ask yourself is, "What type of function am I having and what type of food do I want to serve?" After answering these two questions, you should have some direction to move towards. If you are having a function and you want it catered (food cooked prior to the event) then you should choose a catering company. If you are having a function where you want the food cooked on the spot, this will eliminate 95% of the catering companies and should leave you with just the BBQ specialist. Now, it is a matter of comparing the BBQ companies to make your final decision. Here is a recommend criteria: Most catering companies do BBQ's, only a few do ONLY BBQ's. Simply BBQ Catering and Event Rentals not only specializes in BBQ's, it is all we do, and year round! Ensure that your BBQ company is telling you ALL the facts. Is it a full service they are providing, will they have staff assisting in serving your guests? Is the BBQ included in the price? Tables? Full Condiments? Ice? What extra services is your BBQ company providing? Music? First Aid Kit/Attendant? Recycling? Fully trained staff?

We are planning an appreciation BBQ for approximately 4,000 guests. Can you serve this amount of people? And can you serve them in under 1hr 30mins?
 

Simply BBQ Catering and Event Rentals has done functions for 25 guests up to 5,000. We can accommodate you for any size function. And time restraints, no problem! We served 5,000 guests in under 60mins!

The service at our events is just as important as the quality of food. No matter the size of the event, we still provide the same great service and equipment. This is a key ingredient! We serve the food right of the grill, for 100 people we generally bring 1 bbq, for 2,000 people we may bring 8 bbq’s. Same goes with the salad bars, drink barrels, tents etc… No matter the size, we still provide the same equipment/service you see in our photo gallery. For 50 people or 5,000 people. There is no compromise.

What happens if it rains? Can I book a rain day? Reschedule my event?
 

Most certainly! When you book your event inquire with us about scheduling a rain day. For a small fee, you can rest assure knowing that if it rains, you have a back up plan!
