4 Steps of Catering Events
When catering events, there are several steps and details that go into making the event successful and special. At Four Seasons Catering and Eatery, our highest priority is ensuring a smooth and unique catered event for all of our clients. To accomplish this, we meet with and discuss the wants and needs of the client, establish logistics, create a seamless timeline and perfect the execution of the event. Read on to understand the four steps of successful catering events.
Step 1: Consultation
At the heart of all catering events are the clients. To create a memorable experience, we sit down with clients to meet and discuss the catering options. Meeting face to face with clients helps us get a clear understand of what the client wants and needs. At this consultation, we discuss type of event, number of guests, theme, menu options, pricing and other specifics to ensure a smooth affair. Four Seasons is dedicated to our clients, so we want to make sure all questions, concerns and thoughts are clearly understood at this consultation. A successful consultation is an important start to a successful event!
Step 2: Establish Logistics
After we understand exactly what our clients want for their catering events, it’s time to figure out what we need to do to ensure a successful night. Four Seasons Catering and Eatery wants each experience to be delicious, unique and specific to each client. Our experienced servers, chef and cooks know exactly what we need to do to accomplish this. The logistics of catering events includes checking and ordering inventory in a timely matter and scheduling servers and staff to help work the event. Catered event logistics also includes exact plans for creation, transportation and presentation of the catered food. To help, caterers must create a timeline.
Step 3: Create a Timeline
The key to successful catering events is knowing exactly who and what will be where and when at all times. Establishing a detailed event “itinerary” helps the event staff create a beautifully smooth event. The timeline should include food drop off, preparation and serving times. In addition, it should include what staff members are serving and at what time, to ensure high quality service. Working with our clients to create the perfect timeline for their event creates a memorable and pleasant experience for everyone.
Step 4: Execution
After all of the menu plans and timelines are settled, it’s time to execute the event! Following the timeline, ensuring food quality and service quality and cleaning up are all aspects of the execution step. At Four Seasons Catering and Eatery, we have been catering events for a long time. Our years of experience, high quality service and food is unmatched, which creates the perfect event experience for our clients.
