Whether your event is a formal wedding, a corporate event or a retirement dinner, there are questions you need to ask your caterer.
Food and drink are huge parts of events like the ones listed above. The cost of food and drink will almost always be a main factor, but there are other things that need to factor into the decision as well.
You need to ask several questions of your caterer. Preparation is key:
Ask the caterer how many events are done a year. This will give you an idea about the workload that can be handled by the caterer.
“Can you handle last-minute request?” There are often last-minute things that come up. It would be helpful to know that things can be catering in ctchanged if need be.
“What is the difference between a gratuity and a service charge?” This can be confusing, especially for people who do not work with caterers very often. It’s best to get clarification up front.
“Are you familiar with my wedding venue?” This will help you prepare your event coordinator in the event the caterer is unfamiliar with the location.
“Do you have proper liability insurance?” This is not likely the first question that you will think to ask but it’s an important one. Better to be safe and secure and know you are protected on the small chance something goes wrong.
