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. Tablecloths Napkins Dinnerware Flatware Charger Plates Glassware Salt and Pepper Shakers Water Pitchers Shop All Tabletop Supplies Display and Decor By providing some simple decor rental items to your clients, you can increase the total balance of the event invoice. 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. Plastic Cutlery Paper Napkins Plastic Drinkware Appetizer Plates Cocktail Picks Foil Pans Aluminum Foil Shop All Catering Disposables Transport Supplies You need catering transport supplies to get your prepared meals off-site without losing temperature. 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.

If you’re setting up a coffee station and you want something more elegant, coffee chafer urns are attractive and functional. 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.

Don’t forget to consider portable handwashing stations for locations without sinks or water hookups.

There’s nothing worse than arriving at the venue and realizing you’ve left something important behind.
