Inclement Weather Policies

When inclement weather impacts the normal operation of our delivery service, Haggen Market Street Catering will make every attempt to safely provide our services for our guests. We will also make every attempt to contact our guests to confirm the status of their event and notify them in a timely manner regarding any changes in our services.  During these challenging weather incidents, it is necessary for us to assess the safety of our delivery team and our delivery fleet, while giving the utmost consideration to our catering guest’s orders.

Inclement weather conditions constitute any conditions which create unsafe or hazardous driving conditions.  These conditions may include, but are not limited to snow, ice, flooding, road closures and poor visibility.  Indicators of these unsafe conditions could include community closures, weather alerts, news warnings, and public safety alerts.  In snow conditions, roads or parking lots that have been un-plowed or that require snow tires and/or chains will be considered unsafe driving condition
