If you don’t do proper research, you may hire any random catering service. Selecting the best catering service provider requires attention to detail and a deep understanding of what exactly we would like at our event tocould lead your event to a potentially disastrous situation.

Here are some insights and tips, to help you select the best service to make your event a huge success.

1. Prepare A Brief Note On The Event And Guests Expected

Preparing notes on the background and type of guests expected at the event, could help you and your catering service plan a food and drinks menu, which can be better adapted to the guest tastes. For ex, the type of food being served would vastly differ if it was a Chinese delegation as compared to an Indian or American delegation. 

Similarly the menu will differ if the event is scheduled for the morning as compared to a dinner meet, which would require a more elaborate menu and setup. Do share your notes with the catering service so that they can offer their suggestions and inputs on the same.

2. Check The Catering Companies Focus Areas

A catering company that is more experienced in managing corporate events may not be the best choice for a child’s birthday party and vice versa, as both these types of events require a very different menu and mindset. While a corporate ambience would be more formal, a child’s birthday party would be all about fun and colour and so would the food

Even the food served at both the events would widely differ and so would the experience and expertise of the chefs. Do try and select a company more tuned to your requirements.

3. Compare Menus & Prices

Not all catering companies charge the same and their prices can differ based on factors such as the menu offered, services provided and other inclusions like staff, decor etc. While comparing prices may not be easy, due to the difference in the food quality and services offered, try and compare the total service offerings by the service providers, to get a better idea of which one would be more value for money. 

Don’t opt for the cheapest quote, as there may be unaccounted extra costs, that could make the whole deal more expensive. Be sure to ask your catering service to include all expected and unexpected costs, so that you can account for it in your event budget, and avoid any last minute increments.

Final Words

A good catering service should be experienced and not seen. The guests share positive reviews on the overall experience with the food, ambience, and service. Trying to save a penny, while compromising on the quality is not advisable and should be avoided at all costs. 

in such cases, hiring a catering company can ensure you peaceful frame of mind, during the event. This will help you host a successful event and ensure it is talked about long after it is over.
