Street food style catering has become very fashionable for weddings, garden party’s and events. Although some street style caterers are better than others!
So what should you be looking out for when trying to hire the catering services of a street style caterer?
The first question that needs to be answered is, “Is this a real business that has been registered with their local council and has that council given them a food health and hygiene rating?”
Its very easy to find out if that has been done, just contact the local council of the caterer and ask them or you could even ask the caterer as they will have a star rating with paperwork to show you. The star rating goes from 0 to 5. 5 is very good and 0 is bad! Here at Your Paella we hold a 5 star rating.
So what else should we need to know before we agree to hire a street style caterer?
You should find out if the street style catering trader has public liability insurance. This is very important for a few reasons. Firstly any business that doesn’t have public liability insurance I would find very suspect. Its good business practice to hold good insurance. Another reason to check the public liability insurance is for peace of mind should something go wrong, not only for you but for the business owner too.
Now you have established the street style caterer has a food hygiene rating and insurance you should ask to see some of their past clients reviews.
Don’t just take the street style caterers word that their food is the best in the world, ask if they can provide you with past clients for a review. At Your Paella we ask our past clients to write an independent review on the www.yell.com website and always encourage potential clients to go to Yell.com and search “Your Paella” “Northants” If a street food style caterer has a good reputation they will be happy to share this with you, if not well I’m sure you can see that they may try and avoid the subject.
Now you should be better prepared to hire a street food style caterer for your special day. We at Your Paella hope you have a very successful event we are happy to give you any other information or even a free no obligation quote to serve delicious Paella’s for you and your guests.
