Where do I start? : How to Inquire About Catering Services

Posted on

Does your company want to host a catered event… but you have no idea where to start planning? Take a deep breath – we’ve got this one covered! It may seem strange to have a precursor to planning, but trust us, there’s an art to the start.

Write down the answers to these questions;
(1) How many people will be at your event?
(2) Are you looking to have a “food drop-off” service, appetizers, a hot buffet or a full-service event?
(3) How much are you willing to spend?
(4) Will you need party supplies, like tablecloths, linens or chairs?
(5) Will you need servers for the event?

Once you have those questions covered, it’s time to think about what’s on the menu. Our corporate menus are designed as a complete meal, which consists of; a salad, an entrée and a side. Depending on the size of your company, you have a few options available, according to your company’s dietary needs or individual preferences.

Obviously your menu choices will depend on your budget, and the size of your group. This is why it is really important to have an idea of how much you are willing to spend before you talk to the catering company. On the topic, keep in mind that the caterers will not be able to give you a quote over the phone because they’ll need some time to make a menu and calculate the costs.

Catering Central provides catering services for big and small budgets alike – with menus from all across the world, as well as new American cuisine. Whether you’re looking to cut down on the carbs, wanting high quality, fresh salads or you’re searching for vegetarian options, we have solutions for your next company event.

So, with all this in mind (and on paper) – pick up the phone and give us a call!
