How to get Affordable Catering Services
If you’re on a budget, which most people are, it can be hard to find affordable catering services. At Four Seasons Catering & Eatery, we pride ourselves on being a delicious, high quality and affordable catering company. Even still, there are some things you can do to tighten down on your budget even more. Read these five tips on how to get affordable catering.
In order to reduce spending of your catering budget, you can consider using nice plasticware. As a silverware alternative, plasticware is cheap, durable and you don’t have to worry about cleaning it after your event. Buying plasticware in bulk at places like Sam’s, Costco or Party City will also help to cut down the price.
Strategically Placed Staff
To ensure affordable catering services, you’ll want to place serving staff strategically. For example, having someone man the drink station helps reduce and control costs. This ensures that people don’t get more than they actually need. Your experienced caterer should know exactly how many staff members you’ll need and where to put them.
Buy in Bulk
As we mentioned before, buying food, utensils and other materials in bulk significantly helps reduce costs. When looking for affordable catering services, make sure to talk to your caterer to see what items can be bought in bulk.
Decide What Foods go Furthest
When on a budget, you want to make sure your food for your catered event is worth the quality and quantity. Be sure to talk to your caterer to discuss what foods can go the furthest on a budget. Your caterer should also explain that types of serving style, such as buffets, can affect the food waste costs. Hiring an experienced, affordable caterer like Four Seasons is key.
Double Check with the Venue
Once you’ve found an affordable caterer, you want to make sure your event venue will accept them. In some cases, certain venues do not allow outside catering. Make sure you discuss this before putting down payments on the venue or caterer.
