Simple Catering Tips
Decide on the right amount of food to order.
So, you’re responsible for having an event catered, and you don’t want to be responsible for having too much or too little food. Here some insider tips that can save your day and checkbook. Anyone that has experience catering can tell you that the best thing to do is to err on the side of having too much food.
Our catering experts also encourage our clients to order trays of food that can be served in small portions, a little at a time. For example, a sandwich tray of a dozen different kinds of four-inch sandwiches can be preferable over a turkey, ham,and roast beef option. Why? It eliminates the risk of any preferred item running out and people being stuck with something they aren’t happy with. It’s a matter of courtesy and prudence.
You might also wish to provide your catering company with an accurate headcount and confirm it at least twice. It’s recommended that you call a week in advance, and the day before the event as well. Don’t rely on past events of your catering location to gauge what to order. For example, an office may have 20 people working from Monday to Thursday, but on Friday half of the staff is off. Don’t ever assume the number of attendees or guests.
Most caterers plan to deliver food for a few extra guests just in case, so they don’t run out. This is a common safeguard that is in place with reputable caterers in New Jersey, but if you use these tips you probably shouldn’t have to press your luck.
Get more time with important clients or prospects
Are your clients and prospects tough to get a hold of? Is it hard to get quality time with them? Well here is a solution caterers know that will help you get more time with hard-to-reach business contacts. First, always avoid grab-and-go foods.
When working with a client who you want to spend extra time with avoid otpions that can be picked up and carried off to a different location like the executive suite or their car. This helps avoid the being tempted to take it with them or run an errand during lunch. Try acquiring items that require a plate and fork, so they have to sit down to eat. Make it a multi-course meal if you can, with soup, salad, entrée, and dessert to help them spend more time with you. Provide an extra special or unique dessert, so they want to stick around.
Anything you can do to pique their interest and appetite for the longest time possible will be your best bet to maximizing your time with clients and guests. Plan ahead and order to make your catering event a success. Catered events gives a new meaning to the phrase “buying time”.
