We guarantee our service, but here are some tips when hiring an event catering service in Boca Raton, FL. You can judge us by these standards for yourself.
- Sample the Caterer’s Food
When you sample the food, you get an idea of not only taste, but the presentation of the meal itself; how it will be served to the guests. You can go over any special requests you have for the chef. It is also a good idea to ask whether the cooking is finished on site or prior to the caterers arriving at the event.
- Check References
This goes without saying, but still, we’ll say it just for good measure. Always check references. Read online reviews, ask around, do whatever it takes. One mistake can turn an awesome event into a dud people will not soon forget.
- Request Past Event Photos
Photos will give you an idea of how the event is set up. You get a feel for what the event will look like and the atmosphere surrounding it. It also gives you a chance to see how the staff is dressed; are they uniformed and cohesive? How do they look as a unit?
- Discuss the Available Services
What other services does the event catering service provide: tables, chairs, linens, cleanup services? You want to know whether you have a one-stop-shop or if you need to look in multiple places for multiple services.
- Review Everything in Person
With so many ways to communicate today, it is tempting to text, email, or even Facebook the company. But the best way to make sure you get exactly what you are paying for is to review everything in person. That way there is no confusion or miscommunication.
- Check with the Event Venue
May venues may have their own vendors they prefer to use. This can benefit greatly because they may have privileges other vendors don’t have. Make sure you check with the venue before hiring a catering service.
- Know Who Is in Charge
The person you speak with to make the arrangement may not be the person in charge the night of your event. Know who the staff is and who you should go to should you have any questions.
By keeping these tips in mind, hiring an event catering service in Boca Raton, FL should be a piece of cake. Give Corporate Caterers a call today and let’s talk about your next big event. We look forward to hearing more from you in the New Year!
