On the YouTube channel EzCater, in the video “How To Choose the Right Caterer For Your Corporate Event” they discuss tips on planning events. You should first know what type of event you are planning: a dinner, board meeting, picnic, barbecue, or special promotion. What type of menu do you want to have for this event? Do some of your employees have dietary restrictions and do you need to have vegetarian, gluten-free, and other choices available? Is it a causal buffet-style event with sandwiches, salads, and beverages or is it a barbecue that needs barbecue catering for corporate events?
Before looking for a caterer, you should know the date and the number of people that will attend. This will help you discuss the event with the caterer.
You should look for a caterer with several years of experience and ask for references to check out their work. Getting a referral from business associates or friends is another effective way to find a caterer. Barbecue food is popular at corporate events and festivals and you should look for a barbecue catering business with experience in this specialty. Barbecue food is served all year round.
