If you’re a caterer, you’d better be well-rested because your busy season is just about to start. Spring, summer and fall mean non-stop weddings. One deep breath and you’re right into the holidays. Add to that list graduation, showers and countless other corporate and private events. You’ll have plenty to keep you hopping in the months to come. But will you have the staff you need to pull off all these events without a hitch?

Start Early

Now is the time to get your ducks in a row – and that begins with staff. The right staff can make all the difference to the success of your season.  You can use staff on hand to handle the many tasks required to prepare for the season like inventorying your equipment and supplies. Begin interviewing now. The earlier you hire, the better your options will be. 

Choose the Best People

Other businesses will be just as busy as you and competing for the same people. Professional, well-groomed, motivated people are highly in demand. Fortunately for you, they are also the ones most likely to be job hunting early. Send out the call now to attract people to your catering business.

Hire Enough Staff

It’s difficult to know in advance how many people it takes to keep your business running smoothly. The best scenario would be having many people on standby that you can call as needed. But if you can’t promise steady work, the best workers may go elsewhere. And with challenges such as scheduling around college classes or vacations, you could be caught short-handed.
