Nowadays it seems like catering companies in Miami are a dime a dozen. With the abundance of events and parties that take place in this city it’s no wonder why so many people choose to go into the catering business. Unfortunately, this means there are a great number of catering companies that don’t deliver on what they promise, and that are in business solely to make a quick buck. Whether you’re planning an event in Miami, South Florida, or anywhere else in the world, you’ll want to make sure you choose a catering company that will make your event a success, instead of a total flop.
There are many things you’ll want to consider before you settle on a catering company. Of course, one of the easiest ways to narrow down your list of choices is to find out which catering companies serve the area in which your event will take place. For example, here at BCG Catering we serve all of South Florida, from Miami to the Palm Beaches. You don’t want to choose a catering company who is situated too far from your event, since they may charge you extra for the travel. Another benefit of choosing a local caterer is that you may know someone who has used them before and who can give you a review of their services.
Find a catering company that will work with your budget. Many catering companies in Miami like to charge at high rates, or include unnecessary extra fees. You want an honest caterer who will work with you to keep you within budget and offer you fair and affordable prices. Your caterer should be able to recommend options that might help you save money.
Make sure the catering company is professional and timely. There are two ways to go about this: reading reviews and meeting with the catering company in person. A caterer who is late to a meeting or who has a sloppy appearance is not someone you want catering your event. You want your caterer to be someone who has a history of being on-time and whose demeanor is nothing less than professional.
Most importantly, make sure you like the food. Schedule a tasting with a few catering companies that you’ve been able to narrow your list down to. If you’ve already got a menu in mind, see if you can have each catering company provide you a sample of some of the food items you’re looking to include at your event. If you find the food anything less than spectacular, then they’re not the right ones for you!
