How to Choose the Right Catering Company

How to Choose the Right Catering Company

If you’re planning a wedding, a professional conference, a gala celebration or any other special event, a good caterer is absolutely essential. Not sure how to choose the right one? Read on for a few handy tips.

Check references

Online reviews are a great way to narrow down your list, but keep in mind that one dissatisfied customer can bomb a great caterer’s reviews, and that mediocre companies can have employees post positive reviews to boost ratings. If you can, reach out to past customers to get their take on the experience.

Ask away

Prepare a list of questions to ask any caterer you might be considering. For example, ask the caterer whether the food will be finished on-site, or kept in a hot box to stay warm. Another important question is whether the caterer is able to accommodate special requests, like vegetarian or gluten free meals.

Find a caterer who’s responsive to your needs

Any caterer will say they offer great food at affordable prices. But do they respond promptly and thoughtfully to your questions? Are they just answering your questions, or are they asking you about your ideas and needs as well? Find a caterer who’s truly committed to making your event special and unique.
