If you have a special anniversary, birthday or holiday coming up you may want to have it hosted at your home. Some people prefer to have gatherings in homes because of the comfortable atmosphere, plush armchairs to sit in, and a kitchen that is just a few steps away. As a host, this is a great time to mingle with family and friends… or is it? If you’ve chosen to host an event, you may have just signed up for a night of frenzied trips to the kitchen to fill a plate with hors d’oeuvres (for the fifth time), and finding room in your refrigerator for Aunt Patty’s casserole (the one you insisted she didn’t have to bring). So is there a solution? Can you host an event and still have time to spend with your guests? Yes – catering. Catering companies in Chicago, or your local area, can take care of all the food so you don’t have to. Here are some of the top reasons to hire a caterer:
Time: As discussed, the biggest reason is to save yourself time. When you hire professionals, you don’t have to worry about making any food, finding room for leftovers, or rushing around trying to make sure that everyone has what they need. You can sit down and relax, and enjoy the festivities, along with everyone else.
Save money: When you have to buy and make all the food yourself, you would have to spend a lot of money (and time) at the grocery store picking everything out. A caterer can get many fresh food items at a discounted price; they pass those savings on to you, the customer.
No stress: When you cater your event, you can release all that stress and pressure that comes with cooking and preparing the menu.
