We're going to cover:

In this blog post, the Streets of New York team is going to discuss everything you need to know about hiring event catering services, including:

  • Five reasons you should hire a catering company for your next event
  • What types of events can benefit from a professional catering service
  • How to pick the best event caterer in Phoenix for any special occasion

Hosting a big event is an exciting experience - but it can also be very stressful and time-consuming as well. It's easy to become overwhelmed very quickly with so many details to consider. One smartest way to simplify the planning process is to hire a professional to provide catering services. 

Whether your upcoming event is a wedding, a family reunion, a corporate celebration, or any other occasion, a full-service catering company can help make it a success. Here are the top five reasons that catering services are the best investment you could make for your next party.


Five Reasons to Hire a Catering Company

  1. Save yourself considerable stress.
No question being a host for any kind of gathering takes a lot of effort, and it can become major stress. From planning the guest list and sending out invitations to decorating the venue and sticking to a budget, there are so many things to do in the months, weeks, and days leading up to the celebration. 

But when you hire a catering company, you're relieving yourself of one of the planning process's biggest burdens: the food. An experienced chef and catering team has the know-how to prepare, deliver, and even serve excellent food, so you can be free from worrying about that part of planning.

  1. Make the best use of your time.

If you're wondering if making the food on your own is worth the money you'll save, think of it this way: your time is money. Imagine how long it will take to plan a menu, shop for ingredients, prepare the food, transport it, and then set-up everything at the venue. And that's not even considering how you'll serve each guest while still finding the time to enjoy yourself.

Instead, partner with a full-serving catering company chooses the most efficient route. You'll get back hours and hours - maybe even full days - of your life, and you'll actually get to experience the fun of the party.

  1. Serve a menu to suit all tastes and preferences.

Figuring out what kind of food will make every guest happy can be a challenge, especially if you're dealing with specific dietary needs or personal preferences. For example, will there be any gluten-free guests? What about vegetarians or vegans, or individuals with allergies?

A caterer understands how to navigate situations such as these and can create a menu that will work for everyone. 

  1. Let a professional handle important details.

A professional has the experience, skills, and time to take every last detail into account. From high-quality ingredients to impressive presentation, a caterer like Streets of New York understands it all. Plus, they are well-prepared to adapt to unexpected circumstances, solving surprise problems if and when needed.

  1. Make an amazing impression on every single guest.

Ultimately, every host wants their guests to have an incredible time. Food is one of the most important parts of planning any occasion, and a subpar menu can derail even the best event. Make sure you wow your friends, family, or colleagues with the best Italian food and pizza in Phoenix, from the award-winning Streets of New York.
