Caterers’ Marquee Requirements
Having owned a busy town centre hotel with 30 bedrooms for 15 years, we have considerable experience in the catering industry and although we no longer have the hotel we fully understand the challenges faced by caterers when working within a marquee. We are therefore sympathetic to their needs and tend to offer a fairly generous catering area as standard within our quotations – this can of course be tailored to individual catering needs and may be determined by guest numbers, style of meal being served, etc.
Caterer Requirements for Marquees
Included within our quoted price will be all power distribution for caterers both within the kitchen and throughout the function space should they need additional sockets for additional features such as bar areas, chocolate fountains, etc.
Caterers can either provide us with a list of their requirements or if they are less experienced in balancing marquee power then a list of equipment they will be utilising will be enough for us to work out the number of sockets and the distribution they will require.
Fully Floored Catering areas
We always ensure that catering areas are fully floored (with additional non-slip surfaces available if required or to meet environmental health legislation at certain events) and with a good light source using fluorescent fittings. Additional floodlights are installed at the back door to assist caterers with loading their vans after the function when it is very often dark.
We Cater for Caterers
During site visits we are conscious of catering requirements e.g. access, power source, water availability and help clients understand the potential needs of caterers if they have not already appointed a preferred supplier who have specified their exact requirements.
We have an excellent working relationship with a range of caterers and always endeavour to offer a high standard of marquee kitchen and personal service to caterers since they are very often the key personnel on site and responsible for the smooth running of your event.
