Caterers anticipate every detail, from the cooking of the food to the time it is served and the moment people are eating. They are also responsible for setting up the tables and arranging the equipment. Catering is a business that places a lot of importance on the menu.
The style of the food served by caterers is also important. The type of food and venue at which it is being served will determine the style. Catering for business lunch and other occasions can be done in a buffet or sit down format.
