Yes. For events with the Anderson’s team serving there is a $50.00 deposit. For all other catering orders a credit card will hold your order.
We prefer to deliver your ice cream as close to serving time as possible. Ice cream sundae packages are delivered in boxes packed with cold chillers and foam to protect the product. With that said, you have a short window of approximately 30 minutes from the time we deliver before it will start to melt*
(*when the boxes are kept out of the sun and covered with a blanket provided by you.)
For those who prefer we can deliver ice cream in our rentable “Silver Bullet Coolers” which will elongate the shelf life. These are just like an old fashioned beach cooler that is on wheels. It will keep tubs of ice cream and pre scooped dishes/sundaes frozen for up to 3 hours from the time it is delivered. *
(*When kept closed and out of the sun and covered with a blanket provided by you.)
The “silver bullet cooler” has a rental fee and an additional fee if not returned within 24 hours of use. (The silver bullet cooler can be returned to the closest Erie County Anderson’s location to you.)
Orders cancelled less than 3 business days before the event date may incur a cancellation fee, regardless of type of order.
There is no tax charged to those groups with a tax exempt form.
We charge 10% gratuity and an 8% admin fee for events requiring service. That allows us “tip” the people that prepare and pack the catered items.
