7 Tips On How To Choose the Right Food Caterer

Search and recommendation- To make your occasion memorable and inspiring, you need to choose a good catering service. Do some research on internet and shortlist 5 to 7 catering companies, and read their positive as well as negative feedback. The word of mouth is the best form of advertisement.

Apart from having a great track record long list of satisfied clients, your list should companies that are properly licensed. A licensed company will ensure that your work is handled efficiently and professionally. Avoid company with a history of complaints or violations.

Choosing The Right Food Caterer

Decide your budget- The budget should be decided before choosing a food caterer. Once you have set your budget, you know what to look for in the menu, services and other expenses. Discuss your budget with couple of caterers and get a fair idea of total expense.

Ask about the cost of their services- Do not forget to ask about rental cost of linens, tables, chairs and décor, staffing, invitations and music. Most of the companies have multiple pricing options. Do not rule out a company that is slightly above budget. Some companies offer customized plans according to your budget and requirements.

Consider menu options- Identify the type of the event and finalize your catering requirements accordingly. Some caterers specialize and cater to the needs of certain events only. Make sure the style of the food catering company matches your needs, and explore different menu options according to your taste, event requirements and of course budget. If members of your family or friends are allergic to any food, you must make sure that the cooking staff can accommodate them.
Find out whether they are going to cook at the venue, or in their own kitchen.

Tastings- Before finalizing a catering company, find out if you can do a tasting. It is best to try the food before the main event.

Size of the staff- Staff size is the most important aspect of any event. The ratio of server to guest varies according to the style of food service you choose (sit-down, buffet etc.). Check if the catering company with provide only servers, or they can also provide bartenders and formally dressed waitstaff. Ask them about the number of servers and cookers on the day of your event.

I booked a catering service for 40 pax for my dearest baby son Dylan's birthday bash. The food came on time and i am very pleased because most of my guest says the food is excellent. Not too bad for a $13 per person catering. Will recommend to my friend who is having her high tea wedding next month.
