When planning your wedding, one of the most important decisions you'll make is which wedding caterers you'll hire for your big day. Choosing unexperienced, low-quality caterers can result in problems, and displeased guests. You don't want your wedding to be infamous among your friends and relatives as the one with the horrible food! So before you make your final decision on which catering company to hire, here are some questions that you should be asking:
How long have you been in business?
New Austin wedding catering companies pop up all of the time. Not only may their food be less than ideal, they may still be getting the hang of the wedding catering business. You don't want your reception to be a learning experience for the catering company - you want a company that knows what they're doing. Dowling Hospitality has been in the business for long enough to have relationships with many of Austin's popular wedding venues. This means that Dowling Hospitality will know exactly what can and can't be done in each venue and can work with you to provide the wedding reception of your dreams.
How do you handle customer complaints?
With some wedding caterers, you have two choices when it comes to their food: take it or leave it. This is not a choice that you want to have to make on your special day. Dowling Hospitality's strong commitment to customer service means that they will do their best to make sure that you are completely satisfied with the food, the staff, and everything else related to the catering aspect of your wedding reception.
What foods can be provided for friends/relatives with special dietary needs?
When looking at Austin wedding catering companies, make sure you know the variety of their menu. Their choices may be limited to chicken, fish, beef, and a limited number of sides. What if you want to have a completely vegan wedding reception or one that showcases food from another country? Fortunately, Dowling Hospitality has a wide variety of menus available for you to choose from. If none of the current menus appeal to you, you also have the option of customizing your menu to fit your needs. So if you want delicious barbeque instead of steak for your guests, you have that option.
