Choosing The Right Caterer: Three Things To Consider
Updated: Sep 25, 2020
No matter the event, if you’re looking for caterers, you’ll want to choose the right one for the job. Food is an important part of any major event, so the right food choices and setups can make or break any social event. But how do you decide which catering company is right for you? Here are three things to look out for when it comes to making your pick.
One of the most important aspects of choosing the right caterer is their capability in catering to the type of event you are hosting. Like with any major profession, some caterers are much better with some events and themes over others. One might be great with weddings while only decent with parties, while another might be vice versa. It’s always best to do thorough research and planning, especially if you have your eye on a specific caterer over others. Don’t be afraid to make some calls and ask questions; that way, you’ll make the best decision possible come showtime.
One of the biggest red flags when it comes to catering choices is if the caterer isn’t willing to allow free samples. This means they aren’t confident with their food. A good caterer shouldn’t be afraid to give out a few free samples; they know their food’s good, so why hide it? A good caterer means an open and transparent one, food-wise!
While online reviews shouldn’t be taken as the “end all and be all” when it comes to forming opinions on caterers, they can help you get some initial insight into potential choices. There’s even the option to reach out to previous customers and get their first-hand opinions, considering there’s the very real possibility that any reviews you come across could be fabricated or fictitious. If the caterer has happy customers across the board and satisfied the other two requirements mentioned above (it’s also highly recommended to have some of your own personal guidelines), then you know you’ve got the right caterer for the job!
