While you sure want people to take the taste of food lingering in their taste buds home, we understand how some caterers can really burn a big hole in your pocket. That’s why we insist on this being your first priority.

Do a quick research on the market prices for caterers in your area, and proceed to set your budget. From there begin a new search for caterers with-in your budget, this budget will also help the caterer to realistically suggest the menu options including style of catering whether seated, buffet, etc.

Remember to also ask the caterer what is included in their pricing; if they would cover the cost of linen, tables and other decorations. If that does not seem affordable to you, strike a customized deal by telling them precisely your needs and priorities.


Another biggest concern is what to do with the leftovers. Whatever precautions you take, there seems to be some amount which stays back. So what are you going to do with that? Do you want it to be served to the homeless and hungry of the area? or Do you want it packed to be sent to people you know? Or does it simply go to the trash? Instruct the catering team on this – what you want the leftovers to be done. You may also want to work closely with the team to ensure a very minimal amount is only wasted. 



Testimonials and reviews are often a very reliable source of information from people who have previously utilized their service. Get down to check a little bit about their worthiness of the caterer. Look out if they are up to what you’re looking for. If you have any dissatisfaction, do not hesitate to click next for other options. 

Tasting Session
