Q: What are our options for breach of contract?
Our catering company was hired by a client to provide food and service for 200 people. On the day of the event, our shipping company provided us the incorrect order for china dinnerware. It was in our contract to provide china and about 12 staff - Only 5 of the 12 showed up. We provided disposables and all food items that were ordered. The client has requested a full refund that we believe to be unfair. What are our options, if any? We have already refunded $1800 of the $2400 paid to us.
Seems that if you provided service, food was served, you have offered more than enough. If sued you can bring in the other company.
I'm not clear if you were to provide the staff or if someone else was. However, you've given them a meal at over 50% off so ......one of those live and learn moments. Without knowing what the contract said about what remedies are if there's an issue, hard to say more. You would want to consult a local contract attorney for more detail, and any releases.
