When your event necessitates catering in Toronto or catering in GTA, there are a plethora of reasons why you should choose Big City Catering when hosting your next event. Thinking of tackling the job on your own to save some money? Taking care of food for large groups or even a small one can often be unclear and trying. Find out why you should choose Big City Catering Toronto for your next event and why you shouldn’t consider tackling it on your own.

Some of the reasons why you should avoid handling food preparation on your own are:

  • You are preoccupied with a myriad of other things!
  • It’s hard to ensure food safety
  • You’ll want to offer your guests a wide variety of culinary options
  • You’ll need to accommodate special dietary requests of your guests
  • Shopping and preparing all that food ready can be a long and intimidating
  • Catering from Big City Catering Toronto is actually affordable!

You are Preoccupied with a Myriad of Other Things!

There are many different aspects to hosting an event. With over 15 years planning events of all sizes, we know what it takes. Where are guests going to be seated? What’s the parking situation like? What cutleries will you need? If you’re hosting an outdoor event, what happens if it rains? Among the many variables, these are the most basic to consider. And with so many things needing your attention, the last thing you’ll want to juggle is event catering for your guests also!

As the host, make a list of the things you want to handle personally but delegate everything else to others. Yes, this includes delegating your catering needs to a catering company! This is especially true if you are hosting a large event. Doing it on your own could seem plausible at the beginning but once you list out all of the tasks and intricacies, you’ll see just how time-consuming everything can be.

Use Big City Catering in Toronto to Ensure Food Safety

With Big City Catering by your side for your event catering needs, you can gain the confidence in knowing that food will be fresh and made in a facility that surpasses local food safety laws. Proper handling of food is a major area of concern that “do-it-yourself” food enthusiasts often overlook when arranging food for many guests. If you are not aware of proper food preservation and serving techniques, you could expose yourself and your guests to unnecessary issues. You’ll want to know with full certainty that all of the food you are serving has been handled safely and disposed of correctly.

Getting everything ready the day before isn’t always a solution. Some food can last for a day if it is properly handled while other foods simply can not. You’ll also want to make sure that everything is ready at the same time so that the hot food is presented along with the cold food. This can be tricky, which is why having a professional caterer makes sense. Big City Catering can ensure that food will be served fresh and guests aren’t waiting on a specific dish in the oven while others are eating something else.

You’ll Want to Offer Your Guests a Wide Variety of Culinary Options

If you want to host an event that is truly spectacular, you know that offering your guests a wide variety of culinary options is needed. Everyone has various tastes and will naturally prefer something unique. You certainly don’t want to end up serving food that only few guests relish. As an example, some of your guests might enjoy seafood while others simply don’t like it or can’t even tolerate it.

Appetizers, Canapes, Finger Foods, Buffet Options, and Desserts are many times, some of the things that need to be served. Offering different options for all of these parts of the meal can be quite a feat. Use Big City Catering, one of the top catering companies Toronto, to ensure that everyone gets something they like for all stages of food service.

You’ll Need to Accommodate Special Dietary Requests of Your Guests

At every event, there are bound to be folks with special dietary needs. Big City Catering is experienced with vegetarian, vegan, dairy free, and gluten free dietary requirements.

Shopping and Preparing All That Food Ready Can Be a Long and Intimidating

Food preparation can be a long and tedious undertaking, especially if you are tasked to do so for a large number of guests. Do you really have the time to visit many stores to shop for a variety of ingredients? Are you really saving money by using fuel to travel to all these stores?
