FIRST FUNCTION:
PLANNING— THE BASIC CATERING
MANAGEMENT FUNCTION
• The first step after the acceptance of the proposal is for a caterer
to begin formulating a comprehensive plan for the event.
• After the mutual acceptance of the proposal, the date of its
execution may actually vary from a few days to several months.
• It is reasonable to have events booked one-to-five months in
advance of the actual date of execution.
• Planning is a basic catering-management function.
• All plans should flow from the caterer’s mission statement.
• The successful caterer formulates and implements a plan based
on competitive strategies directed from the mission statement
SECOND FUNCTION: OPERATIONS— EXECUTION
OF TASKS
• Once the caterer has identified and broken down a customer’s
needs and wants, it becomes easier to assign specific tasks to
exceed their objectives.
• A successful caterer can interpret customer needs and wants
but the real challenge is to translate each customer objective
into a specific, operational task.
• The caterer develops the plan with the organizational team.
• Every detail of the event is written down.
• Each detail is reviewed and assigned as a task.
• This list of operations, specific to the event, includes both the
tasks and steps for executing them.
THIRD FUNCTION: ORGANIZING THE
EVENT
•Organizing is the process of formally structuring the
organization so each assigned task can efficiently and
effectively attain the stated objective.
•A purpose of a formal structure is for the distribution,
maximum utilization, monitoring, and control of scarce
resources by the caterer.
•The caterer will organize human resources, capital
resources, and financial resources to accomplish stated
objectives.
FOURTH FUNCTION: EQUIPMENT
•Equipment needs are based on the menu, service
requirements, type and location of the event, and
special needs of the client.
•A common first question for the caterer is, “What
equipment is needed for this event and how will it
be handled?”
DETERMINING EQUIPMENT NEEDS
•1. Will the event be held on-premise or off-premise?
•2. If the event is held off-premise, is refrigeration
needed?
•3. How will the cold and hot food be kept at
temperatures required to minimize bacterial growth?
•4. How will the hot and cold food be safely transported
?
•5. What kind of serving equipment is needed for the
event?
FIFTH FUNCTION: IMPLEMENTING
• Implementing the plan requires direct communication with
the team leaders.
• Communication with the kitchen manager, service or dining
room manager, office personnel, and purchasing manager is
necessary for the team to know exactly what is required for
implementation and execution of the plan.
• The kitchen staff must review and bundle each task required to
produce each menu item.
• The service staff needs to review and bundle its tasks relative
to the type and style of service.
SIXTH FUNCTION: CONTROLLING
• Controlling the organization’s resources is perhaps one of the
most important catering management tasks.
• Control in all facets of the catering operation is needed.
• The caterer must develop and implement internal and external
control procedures into the management of the catering
system.
• Control of food, beverages, and labor costs, including salaries,
wages, and employee benefits is an extremely important
catering management task.
SEVENTH FUNCTION: UNDERSTANDING
INSURANCE AND LEGAL ISSUES
•No amount of planning can rectify the damages
resulting from insufficient insurance coverage.
•Caterers must know their legal responsibilities to their
patrons, employees, and to protect their own
investment.
•Insurance plans should cover equipment, personnel,
and guests at both on-premise and off-premise
events.
•Ensuring that the basics are covered is an essential
step in protecting one’s livelihood
Summary
• Seven key fundamental catering functions that occur in every
successful catering business are:
• (1) formulating the strategic plan for the event:
• (2) executing the operational tasks;
• (3) organizing resources;
• (4) matching equipment needs to the requirements of the food
and service;
• (5) implementing the plan;
• (6) controlling the event by use of financial tools and
predetermined standards; and
• (7) obtaining insurance coverage and ensuring all legal
concerns are covered by a contract.
Thank you…..
And
have a great day ahead…..
