Buffets…

September 4, 2019

Let’s talk about one of my FAVORITE topics – FOOD!

I’ve been around a long time in this industry working all aspects of the business. From the front of the house to the back of the house, what generally works and of course what doesn’t work, what’s easier and more efficient, to what can be unwanted wasted efforts. Most things are possible, some things just flow more smoothly than others and of course we all want a smooth, efficient seamless process come wedding day, right?

Typically a couple determines right out of the gate whether they want a buffet style dinner or a plated dinner, today we focus on the Buffet option.

Myth – A buffet is less expensive

Reality – It is more expensive– due to the fact that more food needs to be prepared in order to compensate for those that take a little more than their share, the caterer incurs a higher food cost to cover the unknown amounts.

What we love about buffets….. your guests get to choose exactly what they want, how much they want and if they want to go back for seconds.

Offering double sided buffets or even 2 buffet lines help lines move quickly and efficiently! Your event staff will help with releasing of tables so it’s not a mad dash all at once!

Next up Plated Dinner options….
