Plan Your Event With Our Services

Yes, catering services coordinate the preparation, creation, delivery, and presentation of food for clients. If you’ve ever attended a wedding reception, fundraiser, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or bar mitzvah that had delightfully prepared and presented food, chances are that event was catered. Additional responsibilities of your event catering company, often include the rental, set-up, and clean-up of decorations, tables, chairs, music and lighting (we’ll talk more about these non-food related responsibilities down the line).

Wedding Reception

All private event catering companies are independently owned and operated businesses. Tafaani Caters is proud to be a local, family-owned and operated, full-service event catering company. Private caterers are often hired for business and personal anniversaries, birthday parties, wedding receptions, business holiday events, bar/bat mitzvahs, as well as many other events. The type of catering service is often responsible for all aspects of the event planning. This most often includes (but is not limited to): menu design and preparation, cuisine creation and presentation, plate and dinnerware rentals, and arranging appropriate pre-event, event, and clean-up crew staffing.

Corporate Event

Now that you know what to expect from a catering company, it’s also important to be aware of what a bad catering company looks like.

There are a lot of shady catering companies out there so do your homework! It’s a good thing to investigate their online reviews and it it common to request referrals from past clients before booking them. Also, make sure the catering company you book has insurance and is licensed to serve food (and alcohol, if applicable). You’d be surprised how many do not.

Can you meet them at their kitchen? Seeing a clean, organized kitchen says a lot about a catering company. If things look chaotic and filthy, chances are, so will your event.

Social Event

Day of event — Before guests arrive, the catering supervisor & team will work hard to set up the tables, chairs, bar(s), and begin preparing food. Once the event is underway, the captain will work with the other vendors to stay synced with the event timeline, clean-up dirty or discarded dishware, clean-up broken glasses, and politely accomodate the needs of all guests.

Following the event — the catering team will most often be the ones in charge of disposing of garbage, organizing rentals for pickup, and leaving the venue in standing order.

Hotel/Restaurant Caterers

The role of this type of catering service is to act as the intermediaries between the kitchen staff and client when planning an in-house event. Their responsibilities include: menu design & preparation, table set-up, banquet arrangement, delivery of decorations, as well as arranging staffing as needed.”
