Catering – It’s all about deadlines

Posted on November 13, 2014 at 3:18 pm

Deadlines can make or break any business, and you have to be realistic, especially in catering. A large group could prove to be too much to handle, but that doesn’t have to be the case if you’re organised. No matter who you’re cooking for, you have to choose dishes that can be made simply and quickly, but this doesn’t mean you can compromise on quality.

Deadlines need to be set for the event, supplies, food orders, menus (if provided) and staff. As a caterer, you have to be able to manage different people at any one given time, and this can be difficult if you have many bookings very close together. You should never bite off more than you can chew, because it can damage your reputation. Make sure you and your team can manage any projects that come your way, and there will always be times when you just have to say no, and that’s part and parcel of the catering business.
