WHY CHOOSE A CATERER WHO SPECIALIZES IN TV & FILM INDUSTRY
Caterers who specialize in TV and film production catering are different from other caterers. Events that call large amounts of food such as wedding and bar mitzvahs require catering services. These events require food and beverages for a set number of guests on a specific date, at a specific location, and at a specific time. Customers typically order these services in advance. Any last minute changes from the customer may incur change fees from the caterer.
Caterers who specialize in TV and film production catering allow for last minute booking and last minute changes. This industry’s catering needs have more moving parts, work on tighter timelines and even tighter budgets. In most cases, production caterers will offer these customers a “menu of the day” at a special price. The menu of the day will likely include options for pescararians, carnivores, vegetarians, vegans and those with food allergies like celiac disease. Production caterers usually provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for multiple days to the same group. Production catering is typically setup buffet style or served off the catering truck.
The most important functions of a production caterer are:
1: Provide a large menu selection
2: Serve food ON-TIME
3: Serve food at the proper temperature
While this seems simple, it can be difficult for typical restaurant or party caterers. Serving meals late can ruin a production. Productions are financially penalized by the crew for late meal service. Crew members complain if the food isn’t quality. This affects morale and productivity on the production set. Experienced producers know the benefits of a well-fed crew. A successful production requires a caterer who specializes in the TV & film industry.
