Great food creates lasting memories, especially when served at a hosted event. Here in Bryan College Station, we understand that choosing a caterer is as important as selecting a venue and we are ready to help! Here are some helpful tips for selecting catering options for your next event.
Plan Ahead for Dietary Restrictions
When interviewing caterers, be sure to ask about dining options for those with dietary restrictions and food allergies. Having menu options available for those that are vegan, gluten-free and more is a necessity, as you don’t want your guests to have a bad experience.
Offer Sustainable Dining Options
Catering companies are starting a new movement incorporating more sustainable practices with their events. From sourcing foods from local farms to recycling, making these types of options available isn’t just a trend, it is now a necessity and often a deciding factor for planners.
Options like reusable China and silverware, compostable paper and plasticware are other options for planners looking to be environmentally friendly.
