Four things you should know about your catering and bar supplier

Four things you should know about your catering and bar supplier

Whether you’re a business or institution, the equipment we use on a daily basis to serve customers is paramount to smooth operation. Getting your catering and bar supplier right is crucial for both the financial and quality assurance of your company.

The relationship between your company and supplier can easily become dysfunctional or one-sided when cost, new products, and quality enter the discussion. Before you choose who to work with, consider the following points to find a long-term and beneficial supplier.

Cost

Price is no doubt the most important aspect to consider when choosing a supplier. But if it’s not financially viable, the relationship will never work out. However, price has to be carefully balanced out with convenience, quality, and customer service.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all model. Finding out as much information about your supplier as you can puts you in a better position to choose a supplier that fits with the demands of your business.

Try before you buy

If you’re about to purchase supplies or equipment, it’s always best to know what you’re actually buying. A catering and bar supplier that goes above and beyond to deliver transparency to its customers will offer the option to visit specified showrooms or factory tours.

Here industry professionals will provide quality assurance and, in some cases, a product journey from start to finish. Equipped with this information, you know exactly what you’re buying and whether it’s the right choice for your company.

Testimonials

Wherever possible, speak to existing customers about the experience with the supplier you’re interested in using. Professional and premium suppliers should be happy to provide these.

Having direct contact with another business who has used them before can be highly beneficial. Not only can they give you reassurance on reliability and quality, they can also explain their supply procedure. This could help you improve your own strategy to stocking and equipping your catering and bar business.

Emphasis on a green future

The environmental impact of your company directly affects your reputation. Choosing a supplier that takes sustainability seriously helps you reduce your environmental impact wherever possible. Biodegradable and greener alternatives are a fantastic way to reduce the plastic and non-recyclable products you use.  

Armed with viable price, quality assurance, testimonials, and greener supplies, you can be confident your catering and bar supplier can meet the demands of your company.
