3 Tips in Hiring a Good Caterer

If you are planning a class reunion, company picnic or wedding reception in the upcoming months, the process can be daunting, time consuming and expensive! Here are a few quick tips from the experts:

1.     Do Your Research – A caterer should be able to create delectable dishes and shine with excellent service.  Ask for references and even a sample of their work.  Learn what the caterer has to offer besides food; linen, equipment, staff, table settings etc.  Clearly understand all charges beyond the food service.

2.     Communication – Select a caterer that will fit with YOUR specific needs. Identify your goals, mood and expectations for your event.  Communicate clearly all changes and ideas.  Define your budget, theme and size of the event.  ASK QUESTIONS frequently to ensure you get what is expected.

3.     Time-Book a caterer as soon as possible! Especially during the summer and holiday season, caterers book multiple events. Planning ahead will ensure you get your first choice of catering and/or venue instead of the last on your list.
