Catering to Knox Moms

No matter if you are planning an event for your church or a business meeting, it’s always a tedious process trying to figure out which catering service works best for your needs. It’s a known fact that almost all restaurants are able to produce catering orders, and sometimes we just want to write a check and get someone else to set everything up. However, it’s important to note the difference between a restaurant that offers catering-sized foods and a business designed to cater events.

Below you will find tips to consider when choosing a caterer, as well as Knoxville area businesses which cater:

Tips when choosing a caterer:

  1. Interview your caterers. Just like everything else, you have to find a match for the type of event you are catering. When you find a company you wish to use, be sure to check your desired caterer is available on the needed date.
  2. Discuss service options. If you wish to use servers, discuss whether you’d like them present before, during and/or after the event.
  3. Request and review the caterer’s estimate and ensure all details are finalized. Most caterers also have a contract — be sure to read the details before signing documents.
  4. Express special requests. Make sure to inform your caterer whether you have a family member in a wheelchair who needs access to a venue, a family member with food allergies/special dietary needs, etc.
  5. Schedule a tasting. Reviews are one thing; the real deal is another. This is a great time to test the service and see if you feel the business will address your event’s needs.
  6. Have fun! Choosing a caterer for an event can be fun. No matter what type of event, when it comes to food and socializing, you want to set a positive tone. Enjoy planning!
