Tuesday, September 03, 2019

Simple Fare Catering, Medford, Somerville, MAA corporate event is a unique opportunity for a company to show appreciation to clients, and offer a friendly gesture to new clients, partners, or even employees. The event itself is marked with sophistication. Whether it’s the activities, formal brand introduction speech, or the food, it all has to be done with a careful selection of the right caterer. Catering is high on the list when it comes to budget considerations in a corporate event. Makes sure you go through these top 3 tips to help choose top catering service for your next corporate event.

1. Flexibility in menu options

A great caterer is someone who listens to you and is interested in your specific needs. Experience is the first criteria to choose the right service. But, it is best to interview at least 3 caterers and select the one who’s most flexible in the menu options.

Every caterer does have standard menu options, but someone who’s ready to take a customized menu is the one worth choosing. An ideal caterer must be interested in listening to special requests and be amenable towards taking customization to the next level.

2. Try samples

When it comes to food, a willingness to provide tastings is a top criteria. How else can you be sure the food is as delicious as advertised? Any caterer who’s reluctant is not worth the effort or money.

3. A functional and all-inclusive contract

The caterer’s contract must mention the terms and conditions, additional prices, and so on. Even small details like who takes the leftovers or additional services must be included in the written form.

A caterer’s service may make or break a corporate event, that’s how crucial it is to select the right caterer. Whether it’s the main course, side options, or the drinks, your business must be able to find the right caterer for the next corporate event.
