With COVID-19 forcing people to cancel or reschedule their events, plans are changing left and right. The good news is that the pandemic won’t last forever—and you can book or rebook your caterer well in advance. Karsh’s Catering in Fresno, CA is accepting bookings for future events, so why not get your reservation in for your celebration, conference or other get-together?
When booking a caterer, it’s best to select and book them as far in advance as possible, so you can guarantee they’ll be available. While many caterers can and do pull off major events on short notice, it’s much harder to predict whether they will be on call for your specific event. After all, they not only have to source the ingredients and make the food, but have enough staff available to prepare and serve the food on site. The farther out you plan, the better luck you’ll have.
Wedding catering should be booked as soon as you know the date and the venue. Try to book at least a year to six months in advance—but if you know the date 18 months ahead of time, there’s absolutely no harm in snagging your top choice right away.
With the COVID-19 pandemic causing a lot of weddings to be rescheduled or turned into reception-only events, there’s bound to be a rush when the country fully reopens. Be sure to book as early as possible to avoid someone else booking your wedding date.
Holidays are a popular time to hire catering, both for family and large-scale events. Most caterers hire plenty of seasonal staff to keep up with demand, so you can book fairly close to the holiday date if it’s a “drop off” catering order. However, if you plan to have a staffed event, or your event is expected to be very large, booking your caterer as soon as possible is a smart way to ensure they’ll be ready for your holiday event.
Small event or “drop off” catering
Speaking of small events and “drop off” catering, this is a great option for family get-togethers or smaller work events where you don’t need workers preparing and serving food on site. Since the caterers won’t need to hire extra staff for the event, you can order up to a couple weeks in advance—but as always, the more notice you’re able to give, the more likely you’ll be able to get exactly what you want, when you want it.
Finally, for major or large corporate events, try to book at least a couple months in advance. Depending on how many people you expect to attend, these corporate events can rival weddings in size and complexity. However, for smaller corporate events, two weeks’ notice is usually plenty to ensure that everyone is fed and served to your standards.
