Top Tips for Hiring a Caterer this Christmas!

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Ask friends for recommendations. This is the best way to tell if a company has done a good job in the past, and is pleasant to work with.  For each client referral, we give you 10% off catering at your next event, as well as a 10% introductory discount to the new client!

Arrange to sample some food before you choose a caterer. It sounds obvious, but food must taste good as well as look delicious, and this is the perfect opportunity to get to know if your caterer is on your wavelength. At Tucci’s Kitchen, we invite you to a taster session so that you can enjoy our food whilst we get to know a little more about your requirements! A perfect way to mix business with taste bud pleasure!

Have a clear budget in mind, but don’t rule out spending a little more for extras that you might not have considered.  All our quotes for catering are bespoke and are worked to your budget and your requirements.  You’d be surprised at the attention to detail we pay to all our clients looking for that extra special service.

Ask about special dietary requirements. If you have guests with intolerances, some companies don’t offer a special menu, or if they do it is limited and expensive.  At Tucci’s Kitchen, we are more than happy to accommodate every dietary need at no extra cost.  You’ll be delighted when you see what scrumptious delights we’ve come up with that will make your guests feel like they have far too much choice!

Ask for a list of additional services. We think a lot about what it takes to put on a party, and it is important that you know we’ve all the bases covered.  If you haven’t got enough wine glasses, need a birthday cake or an extra hand dishing out canapes, we are able to provide a variety of solutions a reasonable cost.

Build up a good realtionship with your caterer. If you regularly host parties and events, it is worthwhile establishing good business terms with your caterer to make the most of all the deals they can offer. All our clients are important to us, and we keep detailed records of past purchases to ease the ordering process next time around, as well as introducing you to new menu items that might be of interest.
