Money Saving Catering Tip No. 1

 Trays are generally very economical. A tray that serves say 20-25 may in fact serve 30 people.

Money Saving Catering Tip


Know the portion sizes of your selected caterer and the appetite of your audience. Often times, you can save by reducing the number of portions ordered of say a side salad. For example if you have 25 people attending an event, order a sandwich platter for 25 but only order 15 of a buffet style side salad.

Food Delivery: How to get the best bang for your buck!

August 26, 2008

In these days when food budgets are tight for many of our clients, we at OrderCorner ( work closely with many of our restaurant partners to insure that we can meet the budgetary needs of our clients, while still insuring that quality food gets delivered on time.  Here are a couple of the items that help us help you, when working with a tight budget.

Tip No 1:

The relationships that we have with our restaurant partners and the feedback we gather from our clients have enabled us to often have a sense of the size of the portions. For example ordering a tray of pasta which states that it feeds 10-12 people, might in fact feed up to 15. This will lower the price per person if you are feeding 15 people

Tip No 2:

Look out for all inclusive packages. These are often great values and also very easy to order. We work closely with many of our restaurant partners and in some cases they will put together a package just for OrderCorner clients.

We have many other “tricks and tips” which we use every day in meeting our clients needs and we will continue to share these with you through this blog. If you have any that you would like to offer up, please add a comment to this post.

Finally just want to remind you that our order receipts all have an auto calculate feature on them so you can easily see how much you are spending a person!
