Since most of your guest at the corporate event are your business acquaintances, you have to make sure that you impress them in everything which includes also the catering services. While most of the event venues offer catering services others also do not, and it requires you to look for one. As you look around for a catering service company, you may realize that it is not an easy task and it requires a lot of careful considerations. The following are some of the tips on how to select the best corporate catering service company to hire.
First you need to know the kind of food that you want for your event and any other service that you may require. While some guests may want to experience different types of foods, some may want to know what they are served with so avoid exotic food choices.
If you are organizing your first corporate event, it can be challenging to know the best company around you, so ask people you trust for recommendation to the best corporate event catering companies and you will have a good starting point.
Look for a catering company which has a good image to the public and its past clients. Most companies will have a website where you can read more about them, so check the customer comments and see what they say of the company. Ask for references of the past clients from the company when you visit and talk to them.
Ask to see the past photos of the event the company provided services to, and see how they are. See if you like the spacing and the finishing touches that you see in the photos.
Before you decide if you can hire the catering company that you find, organize to have a taste of their food and make sure it is the best you would like. You can make adjustment on how they prepare their food, like reduction of spices to meet your expectations.
Look at also the organization of the other caterers and their behavior towards you. The catering team should portray the best manners around you, and be sure what you see will be what your guests will get.
While some catering companies will only offer food and drinks, some will offers other services like lines for the tables and floral d?cor, so ask about that so that you know what part of event organization you are covered.
Request for the price quotes on the catering service that you get from the company before you make the final decision, to make sure you can afford. Ask about the how they will handle emergency services or situations that can arise the last minute for the event.
