Personal and event requirements

The best way to figure out if a caterer is right for your event is how quickly they respond to your needs and how enthusiastic they are about providing you their services. Gauge the caterer based on your initial conversations, because how they interact with you is how they will interact with the guests at your event. A professional caterer in Malaysia will also ask you a lot of questions pertaining to your personal needs and requirements If they don’t, that’s a red flag.

Explanation of services

A caterer’s website and contract should cover in detail what to expect from their service. For example, you should be able to go to an FAQ page or browse their website to understand how they operate. From there, if you decide to hire them, the beverages, buffet set or menu, and payment method should all be outlined clearly. The cancellation process should also be clearly defined. This protects you from any further complications later.

Flexible menu options

Any seasoned caterer is going to offer more than one menu and style, and they should also be willing to create some substitutions if it is within the limits of the course. That is why we at WYK Catering offer an array of menus and styles for you to choose from. We also have vegetarian options! 

Experience

Lastly, you want a caterer who has been in business for a while. Looking out for reviews and testimonials are critical in figuring out just how good a job a catering company can do.
