Be it for a wedding, a party, a get-together, or a work event, catering is an option that so many people take advantage of. Not only is this a great way to enjoy a quality meal, but it’s the best way to enjoy an event without the stress of it. If you’re considering hiring a caterer for any of your events, you want to make sure that you’re choosing the right one for your needs. In today’s blog, the team at FiftyThree Catering is going to touch on a few of the things that you should look into when looking for the right catering fit for you.

Experience

It doesn’t matter which event you’re going to have catered, you want to know that the professionals you’re hiring can handle everything that comes their way. Be it party size or menu items, the experience that a catering company has can make or break the way that they perform at an event. Before you settle for just any catering company, look into them and see what experience they have.

Reviews

When you’re wanting to get an idea of what your experience with a catering company will be like, the best way to find out is by looking at their reviews. Customers leave reviews when they have had really great experiences, but also when they have had painfully poor ones. Looking through past reviews is a great way to help you get a glimpse of what to expect of your experience with this company if you choose to work with them.

Tastings

Before you choose a caterer, you definitely want to have the opportunity to get a taste for their menu. Tastings are something that all catering companies should offer, but they’re also a great way to get an idea of what this catering company is capable of. Every caterer is going to provide a different menu and prepare it with their own unique touch, so before you settle on any one caterer, make sure that you at least schedule a tasting.

Customer Service

Without a doubt, you want to make sure that the company that you pick offers excellent customer service. Customer service will contribute to how timely they reply to your requests and schedule your catering, but it will also show up when they’re at the event serving your guests. You should get an idea of the customer service that they’re going to provide when you look at their reviews, but take note of the first interactions that you have with them. If you aren’t receiving impeccable customer service at this point in the exchange, don’t expect it once you’ve hired the company.
