Food is a big part of everyone’s life. Great food can transform a good event into an awesome one.
But you already know that! You also probably know that a bad catering service can wreck a happy occasion. Here is a guide to choosing a catering service that you’ll be happy with.
1. The Food Is Most Important, Of Course
As you look around, you’ll probably find lots of people willing to cater your event, from your next door neighbor to some stranger with a warehouse kitchen. You might even be tempted to just call someone and order without knowing anything about the food, because the price is good. This is a risky decision. Better to use a company that you are familiar with, and whose food you know you like.
When people look for a caterer, they often look for good customer service as well as flexibility and creativity. A good caterer should be able to walk you through a number of sample menus that fit your price range. You should be able to personalize your event to your liking, and to fit the occasion. Don’t forget timing, either. It doesn’t matter how good the price is and how yummy the food is if it doesn’t get there on time.
Of course, this doesn’t matter to everyone. But when your food comes in unsightly bins and boxes, with plastic plates and dinnerware, it sends a message some don’t actually want to send. If you have to spend a lot of time presenting the food differently, it takes away from the time-saving offered by catering as a whole.
