Catering Supplies Checklist

Catering Supplies Checklist

Catering an off-site event requires organization and planning. Accounting for supplies and catering equipment before your staff steps onto the delivery truck ensures no items are left behind. We’ve made a catering checklist to help you prepare for your event and set your employees up for success. If you’re just getting started in the catering business, this is a good introduction to the items you’ll need for a full-scale, off-site event. Click below for a downloadable catering checklist template: Download our Catering Checklist PDF Table Settings The style of the event will dictate the types of items you’ll need for table settings. Upscale weddings and events require more items to complete a table setting, including cloth napkins, charger plates, and stemware. A simple picnic or barbecue may only require dinner plates, water glasses, and flatware.

Many customers would much rather pay your catering company to rent simple items like vases and table numbers than seek out a separate rental company. Don’t forget display risers and display stands that allow you to highlight your dishes and take advantage of vertical space on your food tables.

Using porcelain dinnerware and traditional glassware requires you to reload the soiled dishes back on the truck, and you’ll most likely have to charge a dishwashing fee. With disposable cutlery, plates, and drinkware, you can spare your clients the fee, eliminate the risk of broken dishes, and cut down on cleaning time.

This is why insulated food pan carriers are a caterer’s best friend. They can be loaded with food pans of various sizes and used to keep food hot or cold. Use outdoor coolers to haul drinks and ice. For dry ingredients, use food storage boxes and totes.

Induction cookers are a great choice for crepe, omelette, or stir-fry stations because they’re compact, portable, and put off no ambient heat. For outdoor catering events, set up grill stations with portable outdoor grills.

Set up your staff for success by providing everything they need to put your vision into place. Lighters are sometimes an afterthought, but they’re crucial to getting your chafers set up with fuel. Extra uniforms and aprons ensure that every member of your staff looks clean and presentable.

Don’t forget to bring plenty of ice because you can usually use more than your initial estimate.

It gives your customers peace of mind to know their event is being handled by one company instead of shopping around for individual rentals. You’ll also need display tables for your food stations, as well as canopies or tents for outdoor catered events.

Serve Drinks at Your Event with Catering Beverage Service Supplies

Disposable catering beverage supplies make it easy to provide safe, sanitary beverage service at your event. Using traditional glassware comes with its challenges when it comes to transportation to the venue. With convenient, lightweight disposable cups and barware, you eliminate the need to stack glass drinkware and you save your staff the time and labor it takes to load glass racks on the truck.

Single-use drinkware and beverage supplies also save time and labor when the event is over. Instead of loading up glass racks of soiled drinkware and transporting them back to your workspace to be cleaned, disposable beverage supplies can simply be tossed out or recycled. This is convenient and eliminates the risk of broken glasses, which can be a hazard at the venue and are also costly to replace.
