How to cater successfully

  1. 1. By Anthony Franco
  2. 2.   Catering offers you a lot of surprises that might leave you either feeling stressed or overwhelmed. But admit it. Should always have plans on your mind to trouble shoot problems and make sure that the event runs as smooth and flawless as it can be.
  3. 3. You’re packing up your stuff already to deliver food for a bar mitzvah when you’ve suddenly realized that one of your staffs prepared ordinary hotdogs rather than the traditional kosher hotdogs. An emergency situation to troubleshoot, indeed. There goes your plan B, of course! Get someone to the grocery to grab the right ingredients.
  4. 4.    The key to getting ready all the time is staying organized. Get your list of to-dos and must-haves ready and check them a lot of times before you hit the venue. Ask someone to check them, as well, since you’re also prone to forgetting some stuff, too.
  5. 5.   It pays to ask your client about the location of the event so you can do a site visit. This will help you a lot in making sure that you can plot a nice layout of how tables should be arranged and the food laid.
  6. 6.    Always keep your on eye even on the smallest details of your business. Be open for suggestions, especially if it’s for everyone’s good. Provide adequate training to your staff and oversee them as they work
  7. 7.    Be ethical, respectful (both to your clients and your staff), and customercentered. Be transparent and be truthful in every service that you offer. Don’t provide misleading information. Stick to your price and never surprise your clients with lastminute add-on.
  8. 8.    Be yourself and let your business stick to its identity. Don’t constantly change your service or menus for the sake of riding with what’s popular. Focus on where you’re best at you’ll carve an image for yourself.
  9. 9.   When pressure mounts and demand heightens, giving in to your emotions won’t help. Stay cool and stress will more likely stay away. Manage your time effectively, delegate tasks, set realistic goals and work on it one at a time and you’ll be OK.
  10. 10.  With a catering software, it’s easy to book appointments, design a customized menu plan, budget, and organize everything, so it’s quite a value for money investment.
