Selecting a Catering Supplier
As a caterer, you will need a supplier you can rely on. This is incredibly important if you want to be able to produce the highest quality food and keep within the deadlines you have promised your clients. You need to know that your catering supplies will be arriving on time and will be to a good enough standard.
If you are looking for a new supplier, a face to face meeting is always advisable. Talk through the business side of things to work out arrangements for deliveries and don’t be shy to discuss prices. If you need catering supplies in a large volume on a regular basis, you can drive a hard bargain.
Test the quality of the ingredients from your supplier. You can attract new customers by using local suppliers and ingredients and this can actually become a good selling point. Make sure you try before you buy – know where your produce is coming from.
