How To Plan Catering For Your Event

There are things to consider to make an event successful. Knowing a little bit about your guests is a start.  Are they older or younger or maybe a mix? Is the event at lunch time or before or after lunch or will supper need to be served?  Here is a good guide for planning:

  • Box lunches need 30 minutes or taken on the go.
  • Sit down meals need at least 1.5 hours.
  • Buffets can be done in about 1 hour.
  • Cocktail receptions require a minimum of 1 hour before dinner.

So your event will need to be planned accordingly.

Most importantly, good food can make any event a success.  So be sure to taste test the food you are choosing from the caterer before you choose it.  References are always good to check with and word of mouth says a lot also.
