How To Choose The Best Catering Company

There is no denying that choosing the right caterers can be an important and difficult decision. No matter what the event may be, you always want to impress your guests and ensure that everyone has plenty to eat. There are so many different catering companies around it can feel impossible to narrow it down. 

Therefore, in order to help you, the Fresh N Funky team have put together a list of our top 3 things to remember when looking for your perfect caterer. 

Variety of food

Ultimately, if a catering company doesn’t offer the type of food you are looking for, then move on. People usually have an idea of the sort of food they are looking for when they plan an event and you shouldn’t have to change this just because a company doesn’t offer it. We can pretty much guarantee that no matter what you are looking for someone will offer it. 

Here at Fresh N Funky Catering, we ensure that we have a wide range of services available to our customers so whether you are looking for a buffet, canapes or formal dining we can assist you. Across our website, we have a wide range of menus for you to choose from – so it is completely up to you and your specific preferences. 


Everyone has a budget in mind and as long as it is realistic, you shouldn’t have to spend hundreds more than you want to. Search around and ask different companies for prices, you will then get an idea of what is normal and what is expensive. 

You should always be able to get a detailed quote from a caterer and if they won’t offer you one then don’t waste your time. Any good company will happily provide you with any information you require to help you find the best organisation to work with. 

References and reviews 

Thanks to the internet, it’s easy to do your own digging and find out a bit more about a potential catering company. You should be able to see a testimonials page on any caterer’s website, as everyone likes to show off good things that are said about them. You may even be able to find pictures of previous events here also. 

Remember, don’t be afraid to ask a company for additional feedback from their previous customers, especially if you’re looking for a particular specific service. They should gladly show you any additional references that they have. 

Booking your catering company 

If you have found your prefered food choice, for a reasonable price, offered by a trustworthy company, then go ahead and book them for your event. We would always advise to book as early as you can, as many catering companies get booked up very far in advance and you don’t want to risk your date being taken by someone else. 

Here at Fresh N Funky Catering, we are happy to help any potential customers with their search for event caterers and if you have any questions at all about our private catering services, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
