A business event is never complete without reliable corporate event caterers. They can provide delicious food in large quantities, saving you the hassle of preparing them in-house! If you’re a business owner trying to find a reliable catering service for your next gathering, here are a few questions you should ask before sealing the deal.
What type of food do you specialise in?
Whilst it’s good to have specialisations when it comes to cooking food, business events are hardly the time to experiment with food. Most attendees will want to have something familiar and filling. This is why you need a catering service that can deliver more than their specialisation. If they can only deliver one type of food, you should start looking at other options.
What comes with the package?
Most corporate event caterers will have package deals, specified to the number of guests arriving and the type of food you want for the event. Other catering services will take care of the tables, chairs and equipment as well. Another important consideration would be the tools and equipment needed for the actual cooking.
If they’re cooking on-site, during the day of the event, they’re sure to need some equipment. This is not necessarily part of the package deal. However, if they’re preparing it in their own kitchen, chances are they’ll be taking care of everything.
What’s the biggest number of people you’ve cooked for?
If you’re expecting a large number of guests for the event, you want to know that the catering service can handle the volume of food they’re producing. If they only have experience with serving 50 guests at a time and you’re hiring them for 200 guests, you’re bound to have some problems during the event. Make sure that they have experience in large-scale food service.
Can you do special menus?
Some corporate event caterers will provide a special menu for guests who have dietary restrictions such as allergies or vegetarianism. Not all do, though, so it’s best to ask beforehand if you have guests who suffer from these restrictions.
