Food can make or break an event – it is what brings people together, and creates bonding opportunities. That is why it is crucial to choose a caterer that has experience and knows what they are doing. If you currently planning an event or function for your university/business, here are a few helpful tips for choosing the best caterer:

  • Event Size: Make sure that whoever you decide to hire can care for the number of people you plan to invite. Consider the level of service you expect, and what kinds of food/drinks will be served
  • Quote: Contact different vendors and get a quote for their service. Take price into consideration, but remember it should not be the only determining factor. Sometimes a vendor might charge less, but provide less quality or services. So weigh out your options and ask about any additional fees.
  • Certifications: Ensure that your caterer meets the basic requirements of the health departments and insurance agencies. If they aren’t able to provide you with anything it might be a better idea to move on. 
  • Location & Preparation: Consider what kind of food you are serving and how it is expected to be prepared or stored before your event. Will you need a refrigerator? How about an oven to keep things warm?
