Do I need to provide a permit for Bag Lady's to cater my event?

Some cities and counties in the Nashville metro area may require a permit for food trucks. Fees typically range from $50-$200. Generally permits are not required for events held on residential property. If your event is taking place in a city that requires a permit and we do not already have one on file, the cost of the permit may be included as part of the event fee. Please check your city for its requirements.

Does Bag Lady's provide condiments, utensils, trash cans, and napkins?


How far in advance should I book my event?

We cannot always guarantee open time slots, so the sooner you book the quicker you can secure the date. In most cases we need to book at least two (2) weeks in advance to properly schedule staff for the event. Please fill out our Request Form so we can save a spot for you and contact you to discuss.

I filled out a request form to book your food truck. Does that mean my event is booked?

No, it is just a request. Once we receive your request, we will do our best to hold the date while we contact you to discuss details. Once we have agreed to terms, we will send you a contract. Your event will be officially booked once the contract is signed and the down-payment has been received. Our events are generally booked on a first come, first served basis.

What is your cancellation policy? Is my deposit refundable?

Bag Lady's requires a 50% deposit to secure any event.

If you decide to cancel your event:

30 or more days prior to the event date, the full deposit will be refunded, 7-30 days prior to the event, 1⁄2 of the deposit will be refunded, and 6 days or less prior to the event, the full deposit will be retained by Bag Lady's.

Raincheck policy: If your event cannot be held due to weather or acts of God, Bag Lady's will work with you to reschedule the event to a different available date as close to the original date as possible.

What about parking?

Client must verify in advance that we are allowed to park at the event location site. If we arrive at the event site and, for any reason, Bag Lady's is unable to park at the event, all monies for the event, in full, will be retained by Bag Lady's. The Bag Lady's truck cannot drive up hills with a 15% grade or higher. Necessary Truck Clearance (approx.): length: 24 feet; height: 15 feet; width: 10 feet; weight: 15k+)
