Types of catering services

Wedding catering

Hiring a caterer is usually expected when planning a wedding, and makes a huge impact for your special day. Questions about decorations, dinner, drinks and dessert all come into play when catering a wedding

Corporate catering

From corporate parties to small office meetings, hiring a caterer to deliver food on site can save your business time and money.

Social event catering

Birthdays, big backyard BBQs or even baby showers are all considered examples of social events where catering is suitable. All you have to do is inform your catering business of the type of event it is, any food and drink requirements, and you can leave the rest to them.

Whether it’s a 21st birthday, corporate function or wedding, caterers are the experts to call when thinking about the food and beverages. Catering businesses will take into account the type of event and people that will be attending, and will also listen to any personal needs or requests of your guests.

How to hire the right caterer

Know your budget

It is important to know your budget before you start looking around - and be sure to include this information in your job request. For most catering businesses, pricing is determined by dollars per head. Having an idea of your budget beforehand will help the caterer help you get more bang for your buck.

Events speciality

Investigating what kinds of events the catering businesses has done in the past can indicate how good of a fit they are for your event. If they specialise in weddings, they may be more appropriate to cater for your wedding. On the other hand, if they specialise in corporate functions then they may not be as suitable if you’re planning a wedding.

Reviews

Reading past customer reviews can give you a fairly good indication of the type of business they are. They can clearly indicate how easy the business is to work with, if their food was any good, if the wait staff were professional, amongst many other factors.

Top Catering Tips

Making those jobs you hate easier

Caterers can make or break your event - so it's important to know which one to hire to ensure you satisfy your guests. Different catering businesses may have different specialties or strengths, so it's always important to check their past work.
