Bay Area Private Event Catering Explained

If you have an important event coming up that involves more than a homemade gathering of a few people, it is wise to secure the services of one of the best catering and event planning companies to help make sure that your event is special and memorable. 

What Are the Categories of Catering

There are four general categories of catering. First is wedding catering. Second is corporate catering which can include events like a training meeting, annual report gathering, team-building dinner or luncheon, and awards presentation. Third is a variety of social gatherings like birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, family reunions, and retirement parties. And fourth is concession catering which can service many types of sporting events. 

What is Full-Service Catering?

Limited-service catering focuses just on cooking and providing food for an event. Full service catering includes designing menu options, of course, and food preparation. But it goes beyond the food to include these other features as needed: 

  • Venue setup including setting up tables and chairs, arranging seating arrangements and the food and bar service areas according to a predetermined floor plan. It also can include tabletop decorations, plate and flatware rentals. 
  • Assistance with event planning, including assistance with securing exceptional Bay Area private event venues
  • Food and bar service personnel using skilled staff members to provide your guests with a great experience and minimize any stress felt by the hosts. 
  • Clean-up at the end of the event. 

Professional full-service catering provides an experienced team to make sure that all aspects of an event are planned and delivered superbly.
