What is the role of catering staff?
The catering staff at Snapshot staffing range from chefs and waiters to sommeliers. Each of these roles has different responsibilities to ensure all elements of the catering at an event are provided for.
It is the chefs’ responsibility to make sure only quality food is served to customers. In order to cater to dietary preferences and allergies, chefs cook with caution and are extremely organized.
The waiting staffs job is to make sure your day is an experience you won’t forget. Upon arrival at the designated area, our caterers will set up and ensure everything is in order before the event begins and continue to monitor their workspace during the event. The waiting staff will help serve your guests and answer any questions that may arise.
Sommeliers from our company have extensive knowledge of your event’s wine list and are passionate about grapes. Besides excellent storytelling, our sommeliers are friendly and professional with a positive attitude that will enhance your drinking experience.
How many catering staff do I need?
Generally, we recommend one waiter per 10 guests for a three-course sit-down meal to ensure consistency in the service. In addition to serving and clearing the food and plates, waiters would serve the wine/water and assist the kitchen with preparations for each course.
Why is catering important for an event?
Catering is one of the most important aspects of a successful event because everyone remembers the food and service when it is done well. Finding the right caterer is essential to serving fresh, high-quality items to your guests. As an event planner, it is your job to ensure that catering runs smoothly. The best option when it comes to planning an event is to hire a catering company.
