You have many decisions to make when planning an event. Once you’ve secured a venue, you can focus on hiring a catering vendor to provide fresh food to your guests. Although many different options are available, it’s often most efficient to hire the in-house team to do the honors.
Why Hire the In-House Catering Team?
1. Streamline the Process
When you outsource your vendors, you have to be careful about coordinating schedules. Electing to work directly with the venue makes life simpler: you work with the same team across the board, and everyone involved is aware of the complexities of the facility.
Based on how many people you invite, they can determine how much food to order and how you should time every part of the event, from serving cocktails to desserts. This will make it far easier to plan the rest of the event.
2. Minimize Your Costs
Hiring an outside vendor will cost you in addition to what you pay for the venue. In-house catering teams are far more affordable by contrast since there are no additional fees to consider for renting equipment and providing staff. If you’re on a strict budget, it’s typically best to utilize the facility’s services as much as possible.
3. Enjoy Fresh Food
Not all foods are designed to travel efficiently, and some may not survive in transit if it’s a bumpy ride to the venue. You never have to worry about your guests eating reheated food when you work with the in-house staff. All of the meals are prepared fresh on-site. This also allows the chefs greater flexibility to provide a more diverse menu.
