Catering in El Paso, TX

15 Questions to ask your caterer:
  • Do you have my date open?
  • How many weddings or quinces do you do per year, and how long have you been in business?
  • Have you done events at my location? TIP: If you haven’t chosen your location yet, ask the caterer if they can help you select one.
  • Are you licensed by the state of Texas? Are you licensed to serve alcohol?
  • Will I need any permits for my event? If so, will you handle obtaining them?
  • Will you provide a banquet manager to coordinate the meal service or an on-site coordinator who will run the entire event?
  • Can you assist with other aspects of the wedding or quinces like selecting other vendors, event design (e.g. specialty lighting, elaborate décor, theme events, etc.)?
  • Given my budget, guest count and event style, what food choices would you recommend? Do you specialize in certain cuisines?
  • Do we have to work off a preset menu or can you create a custom menu for our event? If I have a special dish I’d like served, would you accommodate that?
  • Do you offer event packages or is everything à la carte? What exactly do your packages include?
  • Do you use all fresh produce, meat, fish, etc.?
  • Can you accommodate dietary restrictions, such as kosher, vegan, etc.?
  • What décor do you provide for appetizer stations or buffet tables?
  • Do you offer package upgrades such as chocolate fountains, ice sculptures, cappuccino machines or specialty displays?
  • Can you do theme menus (e.g. barbecue, luau, etc.)? Would you also provide the décor?
