When planning a smaller event, you may be considering handling the cooking on your own. However, some events require special event catering. When it comes to just about any kind of gathering or event, having a delicious menu for the guests is essential. Mistakenly planning to cook for an event that needs catering can cause you to be overwhelmed with unnecessary stress. Here are a 3 events that require professional catering serves

Corporate Events

If you are planning a corporate meeting of any kind, having the event catered can make everything run smoothly. Many corporate events host dozens, even hundreds of people at a time, so it is crucial to have a delicious menu on hand with enough food for everyone. If this is a business meeting it would be a much better use of your time to spend the event with your colleagues rather than cooking!

Family Events

While some families may have a grill guru willing to barbeque for the whole family, some occasions might call for a professional. Whether you are having a family reunion or a party for a recent grad, a professionally catered event may be the only way to feed a large family gathering. It is important that your memories of a family event is with your family instead of serving them!

Surprise Parties

If you are planning a surprise party for a friend or family member, you want to make sure the cuisine is delicious and plentiful. To make sure everything goes as planned, hiring an event catering business to handle to menu is one less thing you will have to worry about when planning the perfect surprise party. And remember, most professional catering companies will even clean up afterwards!

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.
