As time goes on consider building up your chafing dishes, ice platters for cold items, along with nice skirts for tables and other eye bling. Small touches like that will show you care about serving hot-cold, safe food, and will look good doing so. Anything you can do to control serving sizes and portions will help greatly. Food safety courses and instruction for everyone involved is always wise. Good luck and stay safe. Steve.

Shiz, if you are really going to be serious about catering, I highly recommend you find a restaurant supply store for purchase items, and if you can, a rental place for other items, such as serving items and tableware, it makes it a lot more economical. I agree with ssbbqguy, that using utensils that slow the ladeling and shoveling is a good idea, such as smaller spoons than cooking spoons. Serving spoons should be a little nicer and smaller etc...

Still a great start. Shiz-nit Caters is not a good name?

Pork looks awesome. I would just echo what others have said, SS Steam pans work great and translate easily from storage, to cooker to serving table with wire chafing rack.

Get your company name and logo together and start marketing! We have been operating since February and are already the number 1 Google search result for BBQ and caterers in our area. This has doubled the business we have brought in from just word of mouth and we can post customer feedback on the website for prospective clients.

Was that a bring a dish party and you only did the meat? That is what it looks like to me. If so then I would only be concerned about keeping the meat at the right temp.

I like those gloves you are wearing. Are they made for food handling? I have the traditional black long ones but I like yours. Please tell me about them.
