5 Questions To Ask While Hiring A Catering Company
When organising a party or an event, it is ever so important to ensure that you offer high quality food to your guests. For this, hiring a catering company to service guests at your event or party can be a very wise option. An efficient service and quality food can be guaranteed but that’s only once you ensure to choose the right catering company of course! To ensure that you choose the right fit for your event, put the following 5 questions to any prospective catering company you are considering hiring for your event or party.
Can You Provide References From Past Clients?
Any reputable catering company should be able to provide references from past clients. Whether you are looking to hire a hog roast machine, a wedding buffet or a BBQ spread for a garden party, a prospective catering company should be able to provide a reference and details for a similar event they have serviced in the past.
Do You Have A Business Licence?
If a catering company does not have a business licence then it’s likely they don’t have business liability insurance either. Hiring a catering company that can’t provide evidence of a licence is a big risk, as they cannot prove they meet health and safety standards.
Can You Provide A Tasting?
If you are hiring a catering company for a large event and they are providing the ingredients, it is important to inquire about arranging a tasting before signing on the dotted line. This will likely save any nasty surprises on the big day itself.
What Types Of Foods Can You Cater For?
If a catering company only specialises in a particular type of food, they may not be the right fit for your event or have the skills to cater for any special dietary requirements.
Can You Provide A Full Price Breakdown For Different Menu Options & Guest Numbers?
Before you agree to hire a catering company, you need to ensure that there is full transparency in their pricing and that you know exactly what you’re going to be charged.
We hope this quick guide serves you well in your quest to find a catering company for your event or party!
