If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding or in charge of organizing a corporate event at your company, you will need to hire a professional catering service. Good caterers will curate your menu and set up a delicious banquet for your guests, making your celebration, whatever kind it may be, perfect for everyone! Moreover, these professionals will prepare the food for your party and walk you through the entire process making sure every little detail is taken care of.

However, just like any other sector within the hospitality industry, there are plenty of catering misconceptions that can prevent you from taking advantage of professional services. So to clear some doubts as to whether or not you should hire catering services, Manhattan Fine Foods Inc. has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about catering services.

Myth 1: Preparation and setup takes only a few minutes
Not true! There are a lot of things a caterer needs to look into when preparing and setting up for an event. If they prepare off-site, they have to deliver all the food, equipment, and other props needed. If the preparation is on-site, they have to arrange the work area and prepare the menu items. At Manhattan Fine Foods Inc., we talk to the customers and let them know where we stand on this. It helps us provide a smooth service.

Myth 2: Serving amazing food equals a successful business
Most customers think that if a caterer serves excellent food, they will be successful in their business. The truth is it takes a lot to be successful! You need to have a great chef, a great team, and the right equipment. Also, you need to consider the cost as sometimes the food is expensive. All in all, there are a lot of factors that come into play when managing and operating a catering business.

Myth 3: Catering workers are not well paid
That is not true! All of our staff at Manhattan Fine Foods Inc. get an hourly wage as well as a share of the gratuity.
