Tips for choosing the perfect catering service!
My favorite advice from the start is with the intial contact of the catering manager is it someone who enjoys what they do? Do they sound as excited for planning the event as you are? When you get over the initial introduction then start in with your details.
Most catering companies will give you a low quote and then you find all of the hidden fees. We have nothing to hide here at the Hereford House. I will give you a proposal that includes taxes and gratuity so you, the client, can see excatly what you owe. Also ask the catering company what is included in the actual price of the dinner.
Here are some questons that you might want to ask.
- Is water, coffee and tea included in the price of the meal?
- Does the china come with the price of the food or if not what is the price per dinner plate, salad plate, utensils?
- Are tabelcloths included, what about napkins?
- Is there an upcharge for anything?
I hope this information helps you out while deciding on the next caterer to host your event.
HAPPY WEDDING PLANNING!
Budgets, Budgets, Budgets!
- Spring is upon us, and you know what that means Wedding Season! Here is some good advice when working with a budget for your wedding
Number #2: An open catering venue verses an all inclusive venue. Some brides think it is easier to rent a place and then find everything..for example if you rent out a space and they only offer chairs and tables for you, you will have to find on your own tablecloths, linens, a catering company, decorations, someone to set-up, clean-up, most of the downtown venues here in Wichita also require security and most of the time parking is an issue. The Hereford House is your one shop stop. We provide not only the tables and chairs but we provide either white, ivory, or black tablecloths, black linens, 3 tier pillar vases with floating candles, all of the formal set-up, and glassware. The Hereford House does all of the event set-up and at the end of the night all of the clean-up. Because the Hereford House is located inside of a members only Country Club you don't have to pay for security. You also do not need to be a member of Terradyne Country Club to have a wedding or a private event here. I can go on and on about the food and the service. We are an upscale steak house with professional servers and we exceed expectations on the food and food quality. So with it all being under one roof it would be a no-brainer to go with an all inclusive place if I had to make the choice!!
