Planning an event that requires catering can feel like a lot of work, but it actually can be quite simple when you hire the right catering service. Here are four catering tips to help you pull off a fantastic event:
- Dependable Catering – The number one best thing you can do is a hire a dependable caterer. How long has the caterer been in business? How many events have they catered? Asking a few questions up front will help to ensure that you are hiring a dependable catering restaurant.
- Who Are Your Guests? – Take the time to think about who you will be feeding. Will you be feeding adults with adult tastes, or children with a desire for a simpler meal? Knowing your guests will help you plan the perfect meal.
- Options – Your guests will have different tastes, likes, and dislikes. The best thing you can do to ensure that all of your guests are happy and satisfied is to offer them a few options. We recommend ordering several different types of pizzas, subs, and beverages.
- Event Timing – Consider how long of an event you want to host. The quickest option would be a boxed lunch in a to-go style. This type of event can be completed in around 30 minutes. If you have a little more time, then you can offer a buffet style event that will usually be finished in about 1 hour. For events that are more than an hour, then we recommend a sit down or plated meal.
