Tips for a Successful Corporate Event Catering

by Sarah Taylore Sydney Caters means Salt of the Earth Catering
Planning a corporate event is not easy, when we know that clients are going to attend it. In such situations, the focus is on two things...namely impressing the clients and offering the best experience possible. Since food is an important part of any event, a lot in terms of impressing your clients would depend on the type of corporate catering Sydney arranged by you. This is something not easy and experts say that you will have to take a number of things into consideration. This will make sure that you arrange the  most impressive event without breaking the bank, so let us, here in this post, go through some important points.

COUNT HEADS-

Before finalising any company for corporate catering Sydney, it is very important that you have an estimate of the head count for the caterer. This will help a lot as far as the necessary arrangements are concerned for the event’s catering are concerned. The team would be able to make adequate arrangements and ensure that no leftover is there and at the same time, there is any shortage of food during the event. In this regards, catering Australia agencies expect their clients to give as exact head count as possible. They further say that it’s always beneficial to overestimate the count, so that food preparations could be made accordingly and there is absolutely no shortage of food during the event.

SET A BUDGET-

Head count should be followed by setting up the budget, you have for corporate catering Sydney and this should also be directed to the catering Australia agency as soon as possible. The kind of budget you have will allow them enough time to think about the menu, plan it in such a way that it stays inside your budget, while impressing the clients at the same time. This budget setting should also include expenses related to linens, china, flowers for the tables and more.

MEETING THEMES-

If you have set a particular theme for the corporate event and want the food to be based on that theme, it’s important that the message is conveyed to the catering Australia agency. The experts from the agency will take out time to plan the menu that is based on your theme and at the same time, it does not go out of your budget as well.

STICK TO A SCHEDULE-

It is very important that throughout the corporate event, you keep sticking to your schedule really tightly. This is beneficial because the agency would get the opportunity to serve freshly cooked food and because they will have the schedule in hand, they will create their own plans on when to start cooking. 

DETERMINE BETWEEN BUFFET OR WAIT STAFF SERVICE-

Depending upon the number of guests and your budget, you can choose between buffet style dining or go with waiter services to serve the food and make other food related arrangements. Buffet style dining is more preferred as far as corporate catering Sydney is concerned because this allows people to interact more with each other.

SELECT A MENU-

Here are some recommendations on what your menu should look like for your next corporate event catering.

  • For Breakfast Functions on a weekday – Include coffee, tea, fruit juices, a main entrée and two sides. Pastries can be offered too.

  • For Lunch – Offer a 5-ounce entrée per person, two to three side dishes and two to four appetizer options.

  • For Dinner – Three to five appetizers, soup or salad, a 7-ounce main entrée and two to three side dishes.
