Many factors go into making any event an unforgettable experience, but one of the most important is the food and catering services used.

From weddings to office catering in Toronto, call Smokin Bones to create an unforgettable culinary experience.

Read on to learn about some of the common factors that can affect your event’s catering needs.

The Number of Confirmed Guests

How you serve your guests and how much you provide is directly related to the number of guests who have returned their RSVP.  An approximate headcount helps to determine the serving style of your catering and your menu. Catering companies in Toronto often have recommended serving styles that pertain to the size of your guest list. For more intimate gathering or office catering in Toronto, you may opt for individually portioned meals or for larger events, buffet style serving can be better suited. 

  • Buffet Style: this style may be used for a bigger crowd, perhaps a more casual event. This way, caterers create significant portions to feed everyone attending, even with last-minute changes. 
  • Family Style: this method is excellent for smaller gatherings. It's a great way to create interaction opportunities, as these settings tend to be more intimate. 
  • Plated Style: this method creates a more uniform setting, typically used in weddings.  

Dietary Restrictions

The dietary requirements of your guests play a crucial part in a successful event. Many hosts will survey their guests, or space is provided on RSVPs to indicate any allergies or preferences. Smokin Bones provides flexibility for allergies like nuts or dairy and restrictions such as halal, kosher, vegan, gluten-free, and many more. This is the importance of consulting with our clients in the event's planning process. 

Time of Year of Your Event

Seasonality plays a significant role in catering an event. Through the seasons come different holidays, which can affect the quality of produce. With that being said, certain menu items are designated for certain seasons. Consult our staff today to find the best menu for the season. 

Your Venue

When planning an event, the venue can make or break the event. Preparation for the event typically takes place at the event. A kitchen is a crucial part of preparation for catering; therefore, if there is no kitchen at the venue, you must make alternative plans with your catering company.

Paul Godfrey - Toronto Blue Jays

You made our barbeque for 1500 guests seem like a walk in the park. Not only was the food outstanding but your ability to process that number of guests so quickly and painlessly was something to see. My compliments to your wonderful, always smiling staff. What a difference that makes.

Dawne Brodlieb - Pop Events

Milt, I've told you how important these events are to us and you have never let us down. I cannot express how wonderful it is to just call and know that everything will be taken care of. Don't ever leave us.

Milton, thank you for your efforts in making our 90th Anniversary Celebration such a huge success. As you know, our most senior executives flew in from Paris for the event and they were thoroughly impressed with everything you did from the presentation, selection, taste and quality of the food to your professional serving and bar staff. All the best.
