Caterers and Event Planners

Caterers are the professionals who put the “special” into a special occasion. They work closely with clients to custom design an event, whether it is a wedding, business cocktail reception, gallery opening, or intimate dinner party. Along with menu planning, food preparation, and service, caterers may be responsible for the entertainment, decorations, staffing, invitations, equipment rental, sales, and billing. Successful caterers and event planners are creative, have superior planning and organizing skills, work well under pressure, and know how to run a business.
