Hiring a catering company can be tricky and does often take more than just saying “let’s do it”. Don’t get us wrong. It’s not difficult. Not at all. However, you do need a little patience and some researching techniques handy.

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for corporate catering in Sydney or a catering company for a child’s birthday bash, there are general steps to follow.

Step #1. Ask yourself, what kind of party are you throwing?

Answer this question at the onset of your plan. Find out the basics. If you’re organising for a company event, figure out the occasion.

Some questions you might need to answer include:

  • Is it an anniversary party?

  • A monthly business summit?

  • Is it a farewell party for a retiring CEO or officemate?

  • How many people are attending?

  • Where is the venue?

The event affects the tone of the party. Throwing a farewell party for a CEO for instance, can be formal or informal. If it’s an annual business summit, a formal approach is likely needed. The type of food chosen, the caterers, and the décor should then be planned with this knowledge.

Here at Yummy Dogs, we cater to a host of fun events and parties. You can add a quirky twist to your formal wedding or event. Maybe even surprise guests in a corporate gathering with an eye catching hotdog stand on the side. 

Step #2. Arrange to meet with the caterer.

This is important. It’s a good chance to ask questions and discuss plans. Here are some sample questions you might want to bring up:

  • What type of dishes can they serve?

  • Are they flexible with their menu? Can they serve finger foods or full meals?

  • Do they offer packages you can take advantage of?

  • Are they insured?

  • How long have they’ve been in the business?

  • Are they licensed?

Come up with your own questions as well. This is also a good time to inquire about a taste test before proceeding with the booking.

Step#3. Discuss miscellaneous needs.

Discuss the setup of the catering service on the day. Most professional catering companies not only bring the food but the atmosphere with their unique settings and equipment such as Yummy Dog’s hot dog carts. Feel free to discuss any other arrangements you might require as part of the catering service so that it’s out of the way and you can enjoy the event without a hassle.  

Step#4. Read the Terms & Conditions carefully before placing the booking.

This goes without saying. Once all your questions are satisfied and you’ve read the Terms & Conditions a bunch of times, then proceed with the booking.

As long as you follow these steps, it’s easy to find reliable catering companies for your special event.
