Event catering is a food service with waiting staff. The food may be prepared on- site or in advance and then delivered to the event to receive the final touches. An event catering company specializes in preparing food and making it look appealing. They also have staff that is responsible for room set up. This type of service is used for banquets and weddings. A full service catering company will also take care of room decorations, lighting and table settings.
Catering services are often sold on a per-person basis. A catering proposal will usually include rental arrival time, staff arrival time, bar open and close time, meal time and rental pick up. There are many factors that can affect the price of catering such as menu choices, hors d’ oeuvres, rentals, labor and services charges.
