First off what is the theme of your event? Your local restaurant that you love might have amazing food but the high-end French cuisine is a little awkward for the outdoor picnic event you had planned. So be sure to find exactly what you’re planning for the event and then start looking for the company you want to use.
The amount of guests you are planning to have is also a key factor when you are looking for a company to cater your event. The more people you are planning to have at the event the earlier you should start your search for a business to cater your event. Also the amount of people will influence the type of catering your event will require.
Picking the menu can be one of the biggest headaches when it comes to organizing a catering event no matter how big it is. Your event could range from a sit down dining experience or just a cocktail party with appetizers depending on the people attending. A rule of thumb when picking the food, is try to pick a wide range of options that will be pleasing to most people and it is a good idea to have options for those who don’t eat meat or who have allergies. Now matter what your catering company or local restaurant should be to suggest some options for you to explore when it comes to picking the menu for your event.
At the end of the day it can get quite expensive to cater an event, so be sure to talk with your catering company the budget you have to work with. If you are working with a tight budget let them know immediately so they can be building your event with cost in mind from the very beginning. A good perk for using a restaurant that you frequent is that they might be more inclined to work with you because you have already built a great relationship with them before hand.
Another great thing about choosing a local restaurant you love is that you know their food is great, so chances are that the food at your event will be just as amazing and your guests will be happy. No matter who choose, either way once you have booked it you can rest assure that your food and beverage will go off without a hitch, now all you have to worry about is getting your guests there!
