Planning For Food Catering?
 Planning For Food Catering?

So you are planning a special event, let’s say a birthday party, celebration, wedding, or a corporate event. You have a long list of things to do and settle, one of them being catering. So then you found the best catering company for your particular event, most people would think of the obvious such as array of cuisines, head count of people to cater for, make sure everything is on point and going as planned. However few people take the time to think of the important factor of how many hours should be given for the whole set up for catering to such events including the setting up and cleaning up, when you do book a venue or a room. Should you allow more than 6 hours to a venue or a room for the events and the caterer to set up and clean up?

It all boils down to quantity and the size of the event the client is having. As common sense would say, if you are having just a party for a small group of people, with just a simple catering involved you may not need a place for more than 6 hours, as it is an intimate and minimalistic catering event. Maybe the meal time can be fixed and setting up and clearing up could be lesser than 6 hours as the guest go on to other things for a particular event, celebration or wedding. But do not forget, that some people might take their time and we just do not know how long certain events can go on for, therefore if you have a time frame try to plan according and ask professional advice from your friendly and professional catering company as they know better to professionally assist your situation. They will advise on it, as they will have dealt with many situations/scenarios before, therefore helping in making the decision easier, even before booking the venue or room.

However, if it is a huge event, with many guests/people, one should evaluate how long it will take to set up a huge and elaborate event for let say few hundreds or thousands, or even more? The client (you) should give ample time or more for the prepping, the caterers need to do plenty of such things as setting up the tables, chairs and food stations or the décor even. During such events caterers just might advise the client/s t not to forget the duration for them to clean up and clear up of the catering. If the catering used is not used by the location’s in house catering services, they would expect the “outside”catering company that was hired to set up properly according to their safety and standards and to clear up whatever that is left over or the messed from the event that was catered to. Not to worry as usually your professional catering companies are fast and they should not take long at all to set up and clean up. But it will all depend on how long the duration of event is, and the size of the event. From there your friendly catering company will tell you how many hours would be needed for the event if the clients have no idea.

Important to note that it will be compulsory for the client/s to discuss and work along with their catering company that they hired to identify the proper or exact amount of time needed, this will be all based upon the type of catering services they will be providing to you. From there on, it is necessary for the client to work with the person or representative who reserved the room or venue for them, as to build that time for the client into the reservation as appropriate.
