How to Choose The Right Caterer for Your Event-Cuisine Edition Part 2

How to Choose The Right Caterer for Your Event-Cuisine Edition Part 2

When the caterer provides fantastic cuisine, the event is an instant success! Cuisine is a key factor as to why many attend an event. The cuisine is outstanding at a catered event!

When the time comes to think about food options and questions, endless thoughts may arise. Well do not panic, Red’s Catering has thought of all the possible questions you may ask your caterer, so sit back with a cup of coffee and relax for round 2.


Menu Options

Every catering company is different with their menus. Some companies do not allow the customer to pick and choose options while others work with their customers to ensure customer satisfaction.


Preset menus have one or two choices for each course, causing limited options for a guest. If the company is not willing to change the options due to dietary restrictions or so on, this is a red flag and usually a trait of startup companies that have little to no experience with food or customer service. Price should not always be a deciding factor when choosing the right caterer. In most cases, you get what you pay for.

Custom & Flexibility

A caterer that permits customers to change options or create their own menu or buffet is a keeper. 9 out of 10 companies will work with any dietary restrictions. These companies show great customer service to ensure their customer is satisfied. They will go above and beyond to ensure that your guests are happy, and your events is one to remember.

Red’s Catering understands everyone enjoys different entrée options and is willing to build a custom menu designed specifically for the customer. We call this, “individualized catering”, being that we create menus and food options that are as unique as our clients and their events. No two menus are ever the same!.

Theme & Creativity

Who doesn’t love a themed party? One gets to dress up, eat and play activities related to the theme. If this is the case, make sure the caterer is willing to work with your needs. Some companies strictly stick to their menu options and do not allow for creativity. The success of any party is determined by how much fun the guests have, and the intent of a themed party is to show appreciation to the guests, whether they are family, friends, or colleagues. However, planning a themed event is more complex than many people may assume at first.

Even a small attendance may include a diverse collection of personality types, food preferences, and definitions of what makes an enjoyable party. Some people may love a chance to dress up in formalwear and attend a lavish banquet, while others may not enjoy formal occasions at all, preferring a more casual environment and dress code.

One of the most critical factors that determines how much a guest enjoys a party is the food that is served. Throughout human history, sharing food has brought people together and been a central part of celebrations. What was true around ancient campfires is true at your office party: if people are enjoying what they are eating, they tend to feel content.
