Tips on Hiring a Good Caterer

If you are planning a church retreat, summer cookout, backyard barbecue or formal gathering, prepping food can be very time consuming. It's a daunting task that can be expensive, but not when you do your research. Here are a few quick tips from the experts:

1.     Do Your Research in Hiring a Caterer – When you hire a caterer, your caterer should be able to create delectable dishes, show them off in a beautifully visual display, and shine with excellent customer service.  Ask for references and even a sample of their work. You can also ask to attend one of their events to see everything "live".  Learn what the caterer has to offer besides food, i.e., linen, set-up equipment, staff, table settings, etc. Ensure that all charges are explained, every detail gone over and you're happy with the arrangement. If you feel uneasy for any reason, pray about it and consider another caterer.

Try Local Catering or Angie's List for referrals. Also check the Better Business Bureau and Yelp for feedback.
