Finding a caterer that is best matched to your event can be tricky. Source Food has a creative team of experts that are able to cater for any occasion. We strive to offer the finest quality food and leading services to our clients, that still falls within budget.
Should you wish to hire Source Food to ensure your event’s success then please read up about the minimum details that we will need from you when requesting a quote from us.
We will need to draw up a detailed brief about your event with as much information as you have. Remember, the more information you give to us, the better we can tailor your quote to fit your budget.
Here are a few tips to help you gather information in order for us to compile the brief for your event.
WHAT IS YOUR OVERALL BUDGET?
Be clear, upfront, and realistic about your budget. We have plenty of experience and we will help you plan the best way to spend your money.
TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR GUESTS
Gives us details about your guests. Tell us about their dietary requirements, and let us know if there will be children attending the event so that we are able to cater accordingly.
WHEN AND WHERE DO YOU NEED US?
Give us information about where you are planning on having your event, along with the dates and times. Location will affect a quote because there are travel and delivery factors to take into consideration.
WHAT TYPE OF MENU WOULD YOU LIKE?
Be detailed and descriptive about what you want out of the food because most of your budget will be going into this. If you are unsure what would work with your event, then you can ask our experts for their recommendations and we can create a bespoke menu for your event.
You could supply everything yourself but sometimes it is just easier to do everything through the caterer to avoid the hassle of making sure that there are enough glasses.
There are a number of equipment items that we will need to have available at the venue for us to freshly prepare your food.
- Serving Equipment: this includes things like cutlery, crockery, and glasses. Not all venues will supply this sort of thing and you might need to hire this through us.
- Seating Arrangements: Depending on your event theme you could have cocktail tables with bar stools, or tables and chairs for a plated bespoke menu.
- Waiting Staff: Having waiters will free up your time for you to be able to mingle with your guests.
- Event Stationary: Our quote covers even the smallest details of the event like name tags, name card, seating charts, invitations, banners and more.
Remember that while it is important to do your research when it comes to choosing your event caterer, avoid getting too many quotes as this will make your decision process more difficult. Do your research, narrow down your caterer choices and work from there.
