Need Help!

by Suzi Bernert » Sat Dec 29, 2018 9:31 pm

I am involved with a small non-profit education group. We have a small conference every spring that will be in Louisville in March. We recently found out the person who was supposed to be doing the planning - he volunteered and assured us he knew how - has some personal issues and nothing has been done. I think I have secured a hotel with a conference room, but they do not do food service. We provide lunch on the main conference day and have an awards dinner after the classes (both on the same day). We need a moderately priced caterer that can provide dishes and silverware, too. This is a small group, maybe 50 for lunch, more for dinner since spouses attend. I have honestly never set up something like this before. I don’t even know where to start. Any ideas or recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

Do most food trucks cater with stoneware or china and real flatware, though? Or disposable? Not snarking, really curious.

Just like other small caterers, we can rent. And we will do whichever our customer prefers (and will pay for.)

Suzi,
Dan Thomas ( Hotbytes member) has catered for years. Noosh Noosh and Anoosh Bistro also do catering and I was surprised at how reasonable their rates were.( You could do Noosh Noosh for lunch and more upscale Anoosh Bistro for dinner- I assume it's the same catering team.

Good luck!
Deb
