Five Tips For A Successful Catering Event
When planning an event many people give a lot of preference to the date, invitations, venue, and décor, but food and beverages are often last on the preparations’ list and given very little focus. However, planning your catering is just as important as everything else while hosting an event as it impacts your guests directly. Also, many people judge the success of an occasion by factoring the quality of their catering.
To help you offer excellent services, food, and beverages at your event, the food and hospitality experts at Brother Jake’s Brick Oven Creations have listed five tips for a successful catering event. Through these tips, you will learn how to incorporate your guests’ preferences into your menu and ensure your catered event wins the hearts of your guests from start to finish.
Tip #1: Choose a menu that everyone loves.
When planning your event, it’s important to take an approach that makes your catering unique, but simultaneously remember that you need to consider your guest’s preferences too. So, in case you want to serve sushi or any other delicacy that’s an acquired taste, confirm if your guests will enjoy it, or else it will go to waste.
Tip #2: Make sure the food is fresh and hot.
Checking to see if the food you serve is hot and fresh may seem like a simple tip, but you’ll be surprised to know that it’s a critical one. Hot, fresh food not only brings out its exquisite taste and aroma, but it also assures your guests that what they are eating is safe to consume without falling ill.
Tip #3: Provide menu choices.
While planning your catering menu, consider adding different options so everyone you invite can enjoy their meal at your occasion. Offer multiple appetizers and entrée choices, so people don’t feel like they are forced to eat the same food served at every other event they attend.
Tip #4: Consider special dietary needs.
Before you confirm your menu selections make sure you ask your guests about their different dietary preferences. You can request them to tick and send their preferences in the RSVP form before the date of the event. Doing this is essential as you cannot be too sure about your guests’ special dietary needs that may arise on account of food allergies, food intolerances, religious requirements, and voluntary dietary restrictions.
Tip #5: Choose a customer-focused caterer.
Once you have the parameters of the food and beverages for your event, call in an expert catering company to help you bring your menus to life. However, when choosing a caterer, check their experience and reviews with past clients. Simultaneously, ask them if they have the necessary permits and licenses and if they meet the guidelines set by the state and federal agencies that monitor the quality of food, health, and hospitality services.
