How The Catering Industry is EvolvingBlog
Many wedding couples wish to offer cuisine representing their heritage. If they are from two different ethnicities, the cuisine request will often represent both cultures.
We currently have a warehouse filled with beautiful chafing dishes. I realize that chafing dishes may be utilized less as the trend shifts more towards creative food stations rather than buffet set-ups. If buffet set-ups do remain in demand, they will appear differently than in the past. The modern, minimalistic approach will reign for some time, as will retro trends.
Color schemes tend to change with yearly color trends. However, I do feel the greys, coppers, and organic textured linens are here to stay for a reasonable period of time.
We are currently seeing a change in seating styles. Many clients are opting for long, farmhouse style seating which often sets the scene for family style dining. Clients who choose food stations often decide to have guests mingle at cocktail tables with no formal seating.
In speaking with a colleague last week, we both agreed that caterers will continue to play a key role in events. We caterers need to remain ahead of the game as our clients have endless access to television cooking shows, YouTube cooking videos, social media and and advice from others.
The catering industry must embrace change with enthusiasm as those who do not stay on top of trends or refuse to adapt risk being left in the dust.
