After long careers in the outdoor industry, Chris French and John Cribari, moved to Winter Park to fulfill the dream of living in the mountains. Not long after opening Wild Horse Inn Bed and Breakfast, Wild Horse Catering was started to take care of wedding clients at the property. The catering company now handles countless events of all types, specializing in weddings in the local area. Since the early days of cooking from the Inn, Wild Horse Catering has grown into the premiere full-service catering company in the area. We’ve now added Sift Cakes to bake wedding cakes and desserts, and we’ve expanded staff and services – and we continue to cater events, large and small, throughout the area. We believe every event should be special and our focus is on working with you to make your event memorable, stress-fee and delicious.

Deposits and Payments
A non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking. Your deposit will range from $500 – $3000 depending on the size, timing and complexity of your event. We require a credit card authorization form to be signed and kept in your file to be used for final charges and vendor charges such as rentals. Final payment will be due 14 days from your event date. All deposits and additional payments are non-refundable.
Tax, Fees and Service
Applicable taxes and 20% Administrative Fee (on food only), will be added to your final invoice. The Administrative Fee covers items such as movement of staff and equipment, sternos, napkins, etc. It is not a gratuity. Gratuities are discretionary – and very much appreciated!
You guaranteed guestcount is due three weeks in advance of your event. Once the count is given, it can increase, but not decrease, for billing purposes.
Staffing and Equipment for Your Event
To properly service your event, we will provide a labor estimate for you. Typical staffing standards require one staff member per 20-25 guests for buffet service, bartenders as appropriate, a Banquet Captain and Event Coordinator for each event. Staff time is invoiced at $30 per hour per staff member. We have a variety of service styles that range in cost – please ask your Event Coordinator for your options.
We are happy to arrange any rentals you may need, including tents, tables, chairs, linens and tabletop items.
Food and Drink Policies
Due to health regulations in the State of Colorado, Wild Horse Catering Company must generally supply all food at your event. Wedding cakes must be provided by a licensed food service professional.
Leftover food is the property of Wild Horse Catering Company, with the exception of wedding cakes. You may arrange in advance to have leftovers packed up for $2 per container. We take no responsibility for food safety of leftovers as we cannot control how they are handled once they leave the event.
Wild Horse Catering Company does not sell alcohol. We are insured to pour any drinks for you and your guests. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone appearing intoxicated. By the signing of your contract you release Wild Horse Catering Company, Inc., from liability for alcohol-related issues at your event.
