Which Events Require Outside Catering?

When it comes to hosting any caliber event the food is one of the most critical factors that can help elevate it to the next level. Whether you’re planning your wedding or just a family barbeque, delicious food makes an event much more memorable. As outside caterers, this is where we come in. In this blog, we will explore the benefits of hiring an outside catering company and which events require outside catering.

Outside caterers are not caterers who only operate outdoors, though we do offer this service if it suits your event. We specialise in bringing food to an event that either doesn’t have a team of in-house caterers or doesn’t have the facilities necessary to prepare food. For example, we do lots of work in village halls, marquees or wedding venues that don’t have their own team.

Barbeques are a summer staple, and having an outside catering team can make hosting one a breeze. We take care of everything from the cooking to the serving (if you really need us that is!) and even provide any equipment such as grills and tables. No matter the celebration, be it a birthday, Christening, Anniversary or garden party, we will make the gathering personal and special. Whatever you’re looking for we will offer a menu that works for your budget and number of guests.

Using an outside caterer can add a touch of professionalism to your event. Having a pre-established menu that has a variety of options, from traditional burgers and hot dogs to more sophisticated dishes like grilled seafood, kebabs and gourmet salads, can really help to elevate the occasion. If you’re stuck for ideas give us a call, we have plenty! On top of the barbeque, we could arrange a finger buffet or help you create a more formal, fine dining experience.
