Events You Wouldn’t Normally Think to Professionally Cater, But Should

There are certain events that simply go hand-in-hand with professional catering. This includes weddings, banquets, conventions, galas, graduations, reunions, and even birthday celebrations. However, there are infinite occasions that we as a society take part in, all of which can benefit greatly from professional catering service. Unfortunately, we tend overlook these opportunities to use professional caterers because most people assume catering companies only accept large bids. But this is not true!

Just think about all the social gatherings you have personally held in your lifetime. Now from those gatherings, how many of those would have been much easier with a professional catering company handling all the food delivery, setup, breakdown, and cleanup? Most people say, “Sure, catering would be much easier, but it also costs a lot more.” But the reality is that you have paid hundreds of dollars buying food and supplies for your each one of your social gatherings, which is basically equivalent to the cost of professional catering. They supply all the necessary plate ware, serving dishes, cutlery, to-go containers, and more, along with all the food and beverage.

Here are Some Common Events That People Forget to Cater:

Wakes

A wake is like an informal gathering to celebrate the life of a loved one who recently passed away. These are generally more light and happy occasions, compared to funerals, which tend to be a bit more morose. For this reason, professional catering is a perfect asset for a wake. Friends and family gathering together to honor and remember the life of their loved one is best done over food, beverage, and libations.

Game Day Celebrations

Have a big game coming up? Sports fans go all out for their favorite teams and the most important tournaments, matches, and games of the season. But instead of visiting the party store and spending endless amounts of money on game day props and d├ęcor, and then going to the grocery store to purchase mounds of meat, side dishes, beverages, snacks, produce, and plate ware, you could just enlist the services of a professional caterer to handle all aspects of your game day. Just tell them your vision and they can make it happen for you at the budget you have set.

Civil Unions

As an alternative to matrimony, many folks opt for a civil union. This is a legally recognized, informal domestic partnership between two people that is similar to marriage. These ceremonies are very special and intimate, and celebrated with close friends and family. This makes it a perfect occasion for professional catering services. Mark your special union with your favorite cuisines and dishes crafted by a skilled culinary professional. Don’t worry about hosting, and enjoy being your own guest!
