Summer is a joyful season for restaurant owners and caterers. With graduations, weddings and parties going on this summer, there are definitely unending activities for your catering business. And even though your customers love your overall service to them, there are still a number of things you can do in order to make them love you even more – especially this summer!



New catering supplies can mean new clients. So to name a few, here are four supplies your catering business needs this summers.

  • Thermometers

All catering companies have basic needs. As an owner yourself, you are aware of how important the temperature is when serving your food. You know how it’s done properly. The food needs to be prepared before and needs to be served in a separate location.

With the time used to cook, hold, transport and reheat the food, it needs to be kept at a certain temperature. This is when thermometers become helpful. By making sure that your staff is armed with an accurate and properly calibrated thermometer, you are confident that every dish they serve is right and perfect.

  • Combi Ovens

If your business tends to cook a massive amount of food at a time, this oven will be incredibly helpful to you. It gives you the opportunity to cook various dishes at once, and quickly enough to make sure the dishes still taste great. Since you will be expecting a large number of customers this summer, this oven can help you speed up your serving and avoid keeping the customers waiting!

  • Hot Plates and Warmers

Although combi ovens are extremely helpful, they are difficult to transport from one place to another. So if your place to prepare the food is quite far from where the food will be served, then you might need something else to heat up the dish. This is where hot plates and warmers come in.

Food presentation is vital for your catering business because it determines the quality of the food that you serve. So in order to keep a hot, well-presented dish available, you need hot plates and warmers. When serving your delicious food, don’t forget to use Mini Mon Amour, Alcas’ finger food containers collection that comes with an amazing variety of color shapes and options.


  • Portion Control

Serving quality food is not the only way to measure the success of your catering business. All catering companies want to stand out, but one of the most important measuring tools is your profitability. You can increase your profitability by making sure that you are in control of your portions.

There is no benefit in serving your customers a dish or drinks that is more than what they can consume, and this always ends up making you lose money. In the same manner, this is not the most ideal way to impress customers because leftovers are still part of your expenses. When serving your guests delicous summers drinks, don't forget to use one of our high quality Italian glasses and straws.


It is important to properly portion your meals in a way that your customers finish their meals completely satisfied. In regards to alcohol, there are measuring pourers available to make sure that your bartenders pour just enough alcohol on their customers’ drinks.
