|9 Tips for Choosing the Best Catering Staff|
Whether you're looking for a staff to prepare and serve food at a family function or an exquisite wedding reception, following some tips will help you to hire the best staff for your soiree.
1. Narrowing the Options:
If you live in a highly populated area, dozens of food service providers might exist. Ask for recommendations from family members and friends. You should also check out reviews via online websites / searches to see how the company fares in the grand scheme of things.
2. Menu Options:
When you're hosting a braai/barbecue, you probably don't want a company that only makes heavier foods best prepared in an oven, such as turkey and mashed potatoes. On the other hand, opting for a platter of sandwiches and potato salads is not the best idea for an elegant wedding reception. Make sure the style of the company matches your needs.
Visit the physical location of the food service staff and assess how clean the space is kept. If it's dirty in there, chances are your food is not going to be of the cleanest and freshest variety.
4. Dietary Restrictions
When members of your group have certain dietary restrictions, you must make sure the cooking staff can accommodate them. For example, if certain members of your party keep Kosher, see if special Kosher meals can be prepared for them. If some individuals are allergic to shellfish, make sure that none of the food is cooked near or with any shrimp, clams, crabs and so forth.
