Are you planning an event soon? If so, there many things to consider and one of most important aspects of any event is the quality, flavor and appearance of the food and the beverages you serve. Instead of trying to do it all and adding more stress to your plate, hiring a catering company will help, but how do you go about selecting the right company?
Here are a few things to consider when hiring a caterer:
Is the caterer responsive and personally interested in your needs?
If the caterer is responsive and interested during your initial conversation, this is a good indicator of how they will perform during the length of their contract with you. A prospective caterer should be learning as much as they can about you in your first few conversations with them. They should be asking about the theme of the event, purpose, budget, goals and number of attendees. If you notice that your caterer isn’t asking you any questions about the event, they are probably seeing you as just another client.
Are there references?
Many caterers claim to be the best and serve the best food, but you can’t just rely on the caterer. Instead, it’s helpful to find out what previous customers have said and these days, it’s very easy to look up references online about a company. Here at Figs & Honey Catering, we have a page dedicated to our testimonials from our clients to ensure that you are getting the straight story.
Is the chef and kitchen staff experienced?
Don’t be afraid to ask about the chef’s experience as well as the staff because they will be responsible for the outcome of the meal and whether your guests enjoy it or not.
