6 Reasons to Hire a Catering Company for a Private Event

Fathers' Day is just around the corner, as is summer. Between summer weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and any number of other things, you may find yourself with a lot to celebrate.


Whether you've got a lot of special events coming or just a few, it's essential to take time and celebrate every once in a while. One way to do this is to hire a catering company.


Catering companies take the pressure of preparing a meal off your shoulders. That's far from the only reason to hire caterers, however.

We'll talk about some of the others in this article.


1. Saving Time


Preparing for a party can be a grueling affair, from creating a guest list to decorating and potentially many other things. It can seem impossible to do it all yourself.


Hiring a caterer to handle the food preparation will take one more thing off your plate. This allows you to focus on other aspects of the party, and that extra time can make the difference between a good party and a great party.


2. Quality Food


You may be many things, but we're guessing you're not a chef.


the Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that only about 150,000 people in the US are professional chefs or cooks. That works out to a fraction of a percent.


Not only that, but the catering company is a business whose only job is cooking and delivering food. They don't have the added pressures of setting other things up for the party.


3. Great Service


Having chefs on the scene isn't necessary for all events--they'd be out-of-place at most Super Bowl parties--but they can be a tremendous asset with formal settings.


Perhaps you're hosting a business outing and want to make an impression. Hiring a catering service can go a long way towards achieving that goal.


4. Safety


An issue most people don't think about often is food safety. We all know the basics of washing our hands, utensils, and dishes, not serving undercooked food, and a few other things, but there's more to it.


For instance, do you know what exact temperatures food needs to be stored, so it doesn't spoil? The answer is either below 41 degrees Fahrenheit or above 140 degrees Fahrenheit because the former is too cold for bacteria to thrive, and the latter is too warm.


5. Cost-Effective


Depending on what kind of event you're hosting, catering could be the most affordable option. Having to buy food and drinks for a large number of guests can be pretty expensive.


While this isn't always the case, it's usually true for more formal events, such as weddings.


6. Variety


Even for non-formal events, catering companies are a great choice since most of them offer various menu types, from Italian pasta with bread and wine to a more low-key barbecue with ribs and burgers.


Nobody has the market cornered on food. People have had to eat for millions of years, and every corner of the world has found its ways to do so.
