Frequently Asked Questions

Can we take over the Ranch for a full buyout?
Of course. All 6 meeting rooms can be rented between our two floors. Renting one floor of 3 meeting rooms is also an option. Send us an inquiry

This place looks like too much fun. Is it a good place for serious work?
Fortune 500 companies use our venue for all types of meetings, not just creative work. Tackling tough problems requires creativity and the brain is most creative when stimulated. We’ve got your stimuli covered.

How do you differ from hotels? Is your pricing different?
Most hotels charge per individual item used and have pricey catering options. Here at Catalyst Ranch, our meeting rooms come stocked with just about everything you could need for your session, including A/V tech support, and it’s all included in the room rental charge.
That’s a lot of stuff.

So someone will be around to help us during our meeting?
Our ranch hands are well trained in all things meetings and operations. If you need an extra flipchart, copies or coffee refreshed, our staff is ready and available. We also have specially trained A/V and tech support on site to assist with your more technical needs.
What a good looking crew.

Can you help me find someone to lead my meeting?
We have top-notch referrals for various types of facilitation including: meeting facilitation, strategic planning, leadership development, creativity coaching, product ideation and more.
Investigate our referrals

What if I just need a quick activity?
One complimentary energizer or icebreaker comes with every meeting. Led by our creative team, it’s a great way to get your group engaged and focused.

Will other groups be using the space while we’re at the Ranch?
More than likely, but fear not. While common spaces will be abuzz with activity, each meeting room is private, so confidential sessions remain behind closed doors.

Do you provide catering?
Big Delicious Planet provides our clients delectable food at reasonable prices, while still offering a truly unique food and meeting experience. Our Client Services Managers will simplify your planning process by coordinating catering orders and finding the meal that’s perfect for your session.
Warning, this link will make you hungry

Is a bar package available for post-meeting cocktail receptions?
Once again, Big Delicious Planet steps up to the plate with their party menus, bar packages and bartenders.
Oh my, what yummy appetizers you have!

Can we hang flipcharts on the walls?
Sure, and we’ll even supply the tape. We have a trick up our sleeve to create more wall space if you need it.
