Planning the perfect meal for your event involves more than deciding on tasty options. How will the food be plated? What will the servers wear? To address often-overlooked concerns, we compiled a list of questions you should ask before you hire a caterer.
If a caterer is familiar with your chosen venue, they will know if there are any concerns that need addressing. At Cary Catering, we will request a site visit if we are not familiar with the venue.
Before you narrow your food choices, you need to know if you have an option of customizing the cuisine, or if you can only select foods from a preset menu. If a specific food item is important to you, experienced caterers will find a way to incorporate it into your flavor profile. Don’t forget to inquire about accommodations for guests with dietary restrictions, as well as kid-friendly and vendor meals.
Even if you are working on a budget, you want the menu to include a variety of tasty temptations. From bountiful buffets to perfectly plated dishes Cary Catering Services will provide you with endless creative options.
Avoid the headache of wondering when the caterer will arrive. Typically, it takes the Cary Catering team about two hours to set up.
Policies differ. Cary Event Catering requests a final head count at least five business days ahead of the event so we can have everything ready on the big day.
For health and food safety reasons, caterers do not provide doggy bags for guests to take food home.
Most caterers outfit their staff with professional uniforms. Our Cary Catering staff arrives dressed in all black attire.
In addition to food preparation, you need to know if the caterer will supply the tableware and handle the table settings and cleanup.
