So, you have a major event coming up.
Of course you want everything to be perfect, from the promotional materials to the décor to perhaps the most important thing – the food.
If you’re struggling to figure out exactly how to feed your guests, consider these tips for finding a caterer that’s right for you.
Consider Menu Options: Be sure to know what the caterer may specialize in – like a certain type of cuisine, for instance. Not all catering services are suitable for all events, and you want to match the service to your needs.
Review Your Ideas in Advance: Communication is important in any working relationship, and it’s important to know if they can meet your expectations ahead of time.
Dietary Restrictions: Review your menu ideas with the caterer, and discuss various menu options. Be sure to also discuss any of your guest’s dietary restrictions that the caterer may need to be able to accommodate.
Availability: Before you sign any contracts, make sure the caterer you choose has the staff required to fully service your event. The amount of staff you need will depend on the size and nature of your event.
Cost: Finally, the cost of service will be a major deciding factor in choosing which catering company is right for you. Be very clear about your budget upfront and also to inquire fees for services such as set up and break down.
