Top Catering related questions

Taskers offering event catering services already have the equipment needed to prepare the meals you ordered. They may also already have a system for buying and preparing the raw ingredients for the food they need to serve. However, if your preferred menu has a specific ingredient, you can tell your Tasker to include it too!

Ideally, you would have booked a month before the event. For peak months like June for weddings and November to December for holidays, it may be best to book earlier, up to three to six months ahead. Some couples book a caterer a full year in advance if that caterer is quite popular in the area. For smaller events, give the caterer at least two to three days lead time.

Yes. When you hire mobile catering, much work is removed from your list. This includes cleaning up the cookware, the kitchen used, and even the dishes. However, the event venue or your home isn’t included in the cleanup. If you need a pre-or post-event cleaning service, you can also find a Tasker for that!

This depends on the caterer and the size of the event. Hosts of smaller gatherings prefer a buffet for the guests to freely get their food, while more formal or bigger events require wait staff to serve the plated meals. If you need a wait staff with your catering service, make sure to check the inclusions in the offer sent to you and clarify.

Airtasker offers an easy payment system with our Airtasker Pay. This secure payment feature allows you to pay for all your needs with your credit or debit card connected to your Airtasker account. Once you accept an offer, we charge the fee to your card. However, we only release the payment to your Tasker after completing the task. It’s cashless, contactless, and hassle-free!

Yes. Peak seasons may require an additional helping hand for your business. Try working with a Tasker instead of worrying about staffing and going through dozens of applications. This allows you to easily manage your costs during the busy months and lower them back when bookings start to slow down.

What do catering services include?

Professional chefs often say that the secret to a delicious meal is time, but we understand that not everyone has hours to spend in the kitchen. All that chopping, boiling, baking, and cleaning can eat up a big chunk of your schedule. Let Airtasker connect you with catering services near you so that you can get more done.

 

Whether you need only need cooked food delivered to your home or a full setup for an event, there’s a Tasker who can do it for you. Get free quotes from local catering near you when you put up a task on the platform. This makes transporting food and equipment easier and faster. Plus, a local Tasker would know the fresh ingredients available and the popular recipes in your location. Here are some types of catering that you may want to book via Airtasker:

Event catering

Special events, grand or intimate, always require good food. From birthday parties to weddings, turn it into a feast with the help of an experienced caterer. Airtasker also allows you to find catering packages within your budget. Make sure to indicate it right away so that Taskers also know how much you’re willing to pay and if they can accommodate that rate. This way, you can shorten the process of going through offers that do not match.

 

After you’ve found the right caterer, you can start searching for other suppliers you need for the event, like singers, bands, performers, and even magicians. You don’t even have to leave the site!

Dessert catering

Speaking of special events, another type of catering that has become more popular over time is dessert catering. This can complement your menu or serve as a stand-alone spread for smaller and shorter programs like bridal showers, kiddie parties, or after-office activities. Airtasker is a great place to find a baker who can create a banquet of sweets, pastries, and fruits for you. You can even request a chocolate fountain for a centerpiece!

Food truck catering

Food trucks have become trendier over the last few years because of the variety in taste and the convenience of hiring them for big venues. You can hire food truck catering near you for concerts, school fairs, informal corporate events, or even weddings. They create a relaxed and casual vibe where guests can choose which food tickles their taste buds. It can be a trip worldwide through different cuisines, with tacos in one truck and pizza cones in another.

These are just a few of the catering services that you can find on Airtasker. Be as detailed as you want when you put up a task and watch Taskers send you offers!
