A caterer prepares, delivers and serves meals to diners at special events like weddings, anniversary parties or corporate meetings. They start by meeting with a client to determine the scheduling, menu and pricing, and then develop a price estimate and a contract for the event. Caterers typically cook off-site and transport food, serving pieces and tableware to the event. A catering staff includes cooks, delivery people, estimators, servers and clean-up personnel. Often, people in this role take on multiple jobs in planning for and carrying out events. While each catering job differs, some responsibilities include:
- Meeting with clients to choose a menu
- Estimating the cost of food and personnel for events
- Developing a clear contract
- Visiting event sites before an event to plan the layout and examine the kitchen facilities
- Planning ingredient amounts to prevent overages and waste
- Communicating with food and equipment rental vendors to order and receive necessary supplies
- Cooking and assembling menu items, usually off-site in a catering kitchen designed for commercial food preparation
- Transporting all food, serving and decorative items to the event venue
- Complying with regulations for food safety and handling

Save Time & Money
While cooking for your event may seem like an easier way to go, there are many factors to consider. Not only are you going to have to spend time during your event preparing, serving, and cleaning up food, you are also going to have to meal plan and grocery shop. Not only will you need to consider the costs of food, but also all of the equipment you will need to serve it. This will eat into your precious time and not allow you to focus on setting the tone of your event. Hiring a cater allows you the opportunity to tell professional chefs what your goals are and how you want your event to go, they handle the rest.
