5 Questions You Need to Ask Your Caterer for that Perfect Event.

Every Single Question You Need to Ask Your Caterer

Irrespective of what kind of event you're having, there is much planning and brainstorming behind a successful event. You must look after various aspects, including event venue selection, food catering, and decor. All this may involve numerous meetings with different vendors. However, while talking to the potential full-service caterers, remember that aside from the food plating and taste, the caterer must also check other boxes.

Below, we have listed every question you must ask your caterer before hiring them! 1. Are You Available on Our Requested Date? The first question you must ask the catering company is if they are available on your requested date. You must also inquire if they have any other catering commitments to look after on that day. Being the only commitment means getting a more personalized experience and service from your chosen caterers.

2. Tell Us About Your Experience

Therefore, ask the vendor about their experience. How many clients have they served? And what cuisine do they specialize in? You should also inquire if they have previously served at your event venue. If yes, it will be advantageous as they would already be familiar with the venue's rules.

3. What Type of Meal Service Do You Offer? Irrespective of what occasion or event it is, the food you serve influences the overall vibe of the celebration. Therefore, ask about your chosen catering company's cuisine and style of serving and ensure that it matches your vision.

4. Do You Provide All the Rentals? You will need the necessary rentals to offer a luxury dining experience, including tables, tablecloths, flatware, glassware, chairs, and plates. Inquire with the respective caterers and see if they can provide those as part of the catering package. Assuming they will (which we do) you must also ensure that the style of these rentals matches the decor and aesthetic of your event.

5. What Are the Inclusions in Your Package? Transparency is essential when booking a catering company. Ask about additional fees, like gratuity and service charges, and upgrade costs that can affect your budget. Therefore, ensure clarity about the package's inclusions and ask the caterer if they usually add extra charges to the invoice. For instance, specific brands of alcohol, vendor service, and a champagne toast may cost extra; hence it's best to be aware of these beforehand and avoid any uncomfortable conversations later on. WE LOOK FORWARD TO CATERING FOR YOU!
