What is Drop Off Catering?

What are your choices when you need catering for an event but you don’t have the time to do it yourself, or the space to have someone come in to do it for you? How would you manage? You wouldn’t want to give your guests anything sub-standard, and you wouldn’t want to compromise, yet surely that’s exactly what you would have to do?

You don’t have to worry; drop off catering is the solution you’re looking for, and it’s a simple and effective way to cater any event. Read on to find out more about what it is and why it’s the best choice for you.

Drop off catering is a packaged food service mainly used by corporate customers looking to feed their teams within work places, along with on-site filming or production which again are looking for delivery catering solutions. Food can be ordered last minute or ordered on a contract/ongoing basis. Both hot and cold food can be package and delivered and the meals can be packaged individually or on platters for sharing. It is a great solution for when there is no space or need for a team of chefs to prepare and serve on site.

For large, recurring orders, catering companies are a great solution, as opposed to using a restaurant as they will not be overwhelmed by the volume, changes, special dietary requirements and specific delivery windows.

There are several benefits to drop off catering that an event organiser, whether it’s a corporate lunch or a large party, will enjoy. The first is that it is a less expensive option than standard on-site catering (especially if you collect the food yourself), meaning that if you are working to a budget, you can still give your guests a wonderful food experience. Another benefit that many mention is that drop off catering allows you more control over the event; you can determine how the food is to be served and how the dining area will be set up rather than leaving it to the caterers

 Drop off catering is also ideal if you have limited space to prepare food, or perhaps nowhere at all to create the dishes you want to serve. Rather than hiring a different, perhaps more expensive venue, when you have drop off catering, you simply need to find a large hall or meeting room to lay the food out in, and nothing will need to be cooked on site. You’ll have a much greater choice of dishes because of this, ensuring there is something for everyone.

No matter what kind of event you are organising or hosting, if you want to impress your guests with good food but don’t require the full catering experience, drop off catering is definitely the right choice. You can relax knowing that your food is going to be delicious and high quality, created by those who understand what it takes to put on a great event, and your guests will enjoy every mouthful.
