Choosing the Right Caterer

When you are planning an event it is very important to find the best in company in food catering. For most people the food is the most important part of an event. It can set the stage for how formal or casual you want the event to be. For instance if your goal is to have a black tie cocktail party you really don't want to offer a BBQ chicken buffet. Your guests will be anticipating your event and type of food you cater is very important. There are a few things you should establish before seeking out a caterer.

The first thing you need to decide is what kind of event is it. Is it a wedding, holiday party, business function or something else? Knowing the kind of function you are having will help you and a caterer decide other important details. Will you have a theme? Is it formal or casual?

You should also have an idea of how many guests you think will attend and the venue you wish to have it at. If you are having it somewhere that doesn't have a kitchen, the caterer you choose needs to be able to prepare the food offsite then deliver it. I advise you to bring your caterer for an onsite tour.

Once you have pinpointed all of the details, then you can start seeking out catering services. Start with your friends. Ask others who they have used in the past and what they have thought. By telling them some details about the event, they may be able to recommend someone based on their previous clients opinions. Go through the phone book or local directory and start calling people. Ask to meet with them to discuss your function and your needs and wants. You can also log on to Google and conduct a search there. You should be able to find a list of caterers in your local area.

You may want a caterer that has many specialty offerings like food for vegetarians or diabetics. Discuss your concerns. If possible, ask for samples. You should be able to taste the foods that you are going to serve to your guests to make sure it is acceptable.

Once you have narrowed it down to a few possible choices, ask for the estimates. Make sure that they include ALL the expenses so they are hiding anything. Then you can make your decision. Your final decision should be based on service, food quality and their ability to meet your requested needs.
