5 Signs of a Great Catering Company January 12, 2018

5 Signs of a Great Catering Company, Ewa, Hawaii

From corporate events to family reunions, having the right cuisine is one of the most important factors of any major event. Although the entertainment and the venue itself are certainly significant, the food and drinks affect the moments in between. That’s why it’s imperative to find the right catering company. If you’re unsure where to start, consider the following characteristics.

How to Find the Best Catering Company

1. Communication Skills

As important as the food may be, if the company doesn’t seem to listen to or follow through on your requests, it won’t matter how delicious it tastes. Be thorough in your interviews, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Also, if you’re emailing or calling them, take note of how quickly and thoughtfully they respond; don’t settle for a poor or rushed answer.

2. Specific Tastings

You should never commit to a catering company until you’ve tasted what they have to offer. They should provide tastings for the specific dishes you’re interested in serving, not just a random item on their menu. If not, keeping looking.

3. References

cateringEven if you feel comfortable communicating with them and love their menu, take some time to contact the company’s references. While online reviews can be helpful, you’ll get a better sense of them by speaking with a few previous clients at length.

4. Event Experience

Different types of events come with different demands, and some companies will be better suited to them than others. For example, what’s needed for an office party isn’t quite the same as formal soirée. To determine who's the best choice for you, inquire about their previous and most commonly catered events.

5. Clear Contract

The clearer the contract, the smoother everything will be. There should be specifics about standard details like the date, menu options, and the number of servings, as well as extensive information about how the payment will be handled, especially in regards to the cancellation process.
