Off Site Catering: What Should You Consider?
When it comes to an important company function, you want to make the best impression possible. You’re probably worrying about every single logistic, from where you will host your guests, to what will be on the menu. Year round, we’re able to provide catering for events at your office or at other venues. To help plan for a smooth luncheon or other event, here are some considerations you should have when hiring a caterer.
Have a Budget in Mind
Settling on the maximum amount you can spend on your event helps your caterer avoid any confusion. For larger events, figure out how much you are willing to spend per person. This will give the caterer a better idea of what they can offer you, as well as present other options within your price range.
This is probably the most important consideration you’ll make. Consider the needs of everyone when working with the caterer to create a menu. Simply send out an RSVP asking co-workers or guests to reply with a yes or a no; this can also be where your co-workers can provide details on any food allergies. Our team can then work to create a menu with something for everyone to enjoy.
Look at all of the options available to you service wise. Drop off catering is our most popular type of off site catering. This is best for clients looking for freshly delivered food set up in disposable trays. There are also full service catering packages, which can include service and china. For our clients, we can help you in a variety of ways, with packages including sit down dinners or lunches and cocktail style receptions. We can also work with you on meeting a theme, decor selection, and providing entertainment for an unforgettable event.
For most events, two weeks before your event date is a good time to contact us with your needs. For last minute events, we can accommodate catering requests up to 72 hours before your event.
