Needs

Catering companies are frequently hired to prepare food for weddings, conferences, banquets, business meetings and other events.

Food

Catering companies generally have a menu of options to show a perspective client. They frequently cater to a variety of situations. They may have menu options for breakfast, box lunches, buffet meals and full service meals. Options include multiple courses, including passed hors d'oeuvres, soup, salad, coffee and deserts.

Services  

 Different levels of service are offered by different companies. In many situations, such as a wedding, the caterers are needed to serve the food and clean up after the meal. In other cases, it may be appropriate for the catering company to just drop the food off and provide utensils, sometimes plates and other various needs. Box lunches for a business meeting are an example of having the food dropped off.

Choice

A caterer should be willing to thoroughly describe items on their menu and offer samples of dishes potential customers are interested in. They should have plenty of staff, a clean record with the health inspector and a valid food service certificate. Caterers must offer references or testimonials upon request.

Supplies

There are many different types of catering tools, all with their own unique functions. They are often used during formal celebrations like weddings or large corporate parties and add a touch of style and elegance to any event or occasion.

Chafing Dishes

Chafing dishes are usually made from stainless steel and are the most common types of catering tools available. They come in various sizes to accommodate virtually every type of event and can all types of dishes. They also have built-in warming units so the hot food stays hot for the duration of the party.

Chocolate Fountains

Chocolate fountains have become extremely popular over the past few years and can be used for almost any occasion. They are beautifully crafted and easy to maintain. Chocolate fountains are always a wonderful conversation starter. They are durable and long-lasting and will make an impression anywhere they are used.

Tiered Trays

Tiered trays are also known as dessert or appetizer trays. As the name suggests, they are generally used for appetizers or small desserts. Tiered trays are often present before the larger catering tools such as chafing dishes because most parties or events begin with small snacks before the larger meals are offered. During holidays, you can find tiered trays holding cookies and candies.

Portable Food Carriers

Portable food carriers are an essential catering tool. Caterers use portable food carriers to transport food from one location to another. Since many caterers work in kitchens that can be a distance from the venue, they must have the ability to move all of their dishes safely and efficiently. Food carriers are insulated and temperature controlled so your hot food stays hot and your cold food stays cold. 

Catering tools are a necessity for anyone who works in the food service industry. They help complete the look of a buffet table and assist caterers by giving them a place to showcase specialty items; they also help to keep food at the correct temperature to ensure safety.
