Spring Means Events and Catering – Be Prepared

Successful events and catering aren’t just about providing great food. As important as that may be, the real secret to success resides in organization. As they say, the devil is in the details.

Niagara Restaurant Solutions Company is here to help.

The best place to begin is with a comprehensive checklist. This list, of course, may vary depending upon the nature of the event. However, the common elements will include such things as:

  • Number of guests to be fed
    • Running out of food does not win popularity contests
  • Style of event – casual, formal, etc.
    • Do you need glassware, china and candles or is this a paper plate affair?
  •  Venue – Indoor or out
    • This is a big one – are special furnishings or tents, etc. required?
  • Food selection and how is it to be served (see Style of event above)
    • Buffet or personal service
  • Will food be prepared on site or transported?

The list above is only the beginning. You will also need to think about important details like cutlery, condiments and what happens to the trash.
