Be Choosy about Choosing the Right Caterer for You

Why does everyone love going to weddings, birthdays, and celebrations in general? Sure, spending time with friends and loved ones is great and all, but all the delicious food is the real reason to send in that RSVP. This is why it is important to choose the perfect caterer for your event. Food is vital to any occasion, so be sure to leave it up to a professional and trustworthy caterer. Here are some things to chew on when you are deciding on a catering company.

  1. Pick up the phone! Talk to people you trust who have held a catered event recently. A personal recommendation can be much more useful than endless anonymous online reviews.
  2. Make a shortlist of caterers. Narrow down your list to a few companies and then get to work on gathering information about them. What are their sample menus? How many people can they accommodate? What about set up and break down? Become an expert yourself on what a great catering company should provide for you.
  3. Make contact. Set up a phone conference or in-person meeting with your potential caterer. Make sure they can answer your questions in a way that is reassuring and confident. This is the time to get all of the details sorted out about pricing and scheduling to avoid complications later.
  4. Finally, make your choice! You will know when you have landed on the right catering company. The silverware selection will glimmer and that Eggplant Parmesan will melt in your mouth. Now that you have your caterer locked in, rest assured that one key element of your event is in good hands.
