Whether you’re hosting a special event, a dinner party, a birthday, anniversary or any other event, choosing a caterer is an important decision which can define the tone and success of your event. You want to enjoy the food yourself, but you also want your guests to feel welcomed, be wowed by the presented food, and leave a lasting impression that your events are something to write home about! That’s where your choice of caterer comes in – not only do you want to ensure the food your chosen caterer produces is of the highest quality and best taste, but the service is professional with flair, and the ingredients are of a great standard. So what should you consider when choosing an event caterer?
Word of mouth is the best recommendation you can get. Real life experience of your chosen caterer will give you the most honest and reliable report of what to expect. Have a look at social media for any reviews or testimonials on the website. Many catering firms will have a portfolio they can share with you when you meet with examples of their previous work and any feedback, which can help you decide whether the firm you are talking to is the right one for you.
Set your budget prior to talking to caterers for a quote and be honest about your limits. Our chefs can be incredibly creative and will do their very best to come up with exciting and innovative menus that don’t stretch your budget.
It seems obvious, but finding out whether your chosen caterer is available on your given dates, and can provide services within your area, are important considerations.
