Good food can most definitely make or break an event. Therefore, it is one of the most important aspects to consider.
The quality, appearance and taste of the food will solely depend on the caterer you’ve picked and would be one of the deciding factors in your event’s success.
Here are five things to consider while selecting a caterer for your next event.
Customization and Interest
Every event is different with a different guest list, event size and location. A caterer that takes time to understand your needs and design menus accordingly is the one to choose. Be clear on what you require from your caterer and take the time out to explain everything in detail so that all your instructions are crystal clear.
When choosing your caterer, consider the distance between your event’s location and your caterer.
Also keep in mind the experience of the caterer. Have they served in this location or a similar one in your area before? Things tend to go wrong last minute; a caterer who is familiar with your location and has catered there before is more likely to provide a seamless service that meets your expectations.
While searching for caterers, ask them what they have done to salvage disasters at the eleventh hour. This will give you an idea of their flexibility and creativity to manage things under stress. Find a caterer who keeps in to consideration allergies and preferences and delivers accordingly.
Perhaps the most important aspect to consider while choosing a caterer is to see its past performance through customer reviews. Check online sources or ask family and friends to get an idea on how trustworthy your prospective caterer’s services are.
While this is an obvious one; make sure it’s a fair deal. If the caterer who you’ve got your heart set on is charging exorbitant prices; try and negotiate a good price for the services. High quality comes at a price. Keep in mind the size of your party and your specific needs to evaluate if the money you are paying a caterer is truly worth the services.
