Helping our clients host memorable events is what we do best. Although it seems like it’s achieved in the blink of an eye, the truth is, behind the scenes it takes a lot of work, planning and timely execution. We get started months before the celebration to guarantee that we not only meet your expectations but exceed them. Wanna take a sneak peek at how we make dream events happen?
Months before the big day we listen to your vision, needs and preferences. Based on that, we present different menu and service options according to the event type and size, the venue and the season. We then establish a timeline to appropriately source and execute all the different choices you selected so everything is ready on time.
WE PLAN AHEAD
Savory food, signature cocktails and impeccable service don’t magically materialize the day of the event. They are the result of a combination of factors that happen behind the scenes well ahead of time. Here’s a sneak peek at what those factors are:
First, we are set up as a full service caterer. This structure allows us to offer an array of choices from delicious food preparation, to bartending, china, glassware, linens and other specialty rentals, setup and clean up services and so much more.
We also have our own Team Fig event staff, a group of professional, TABC certified servers, bartenders and support staff that make sure the service we provide is flawless. Being a one-stop-shop allows us to take care of everything behind the scenes so our clients don’t have to!
Second, we maintain strong relationships with reliable top notch local farms and artisans from whom we source the best fresh ingredients. We are committed to supporting these small local family businesses whose partnership is essential for what we do.
Third, we collaborate. Team Fig works like a well oiled machine, but we also strive to collaborate with any other vendors involved in your event so there are no hiccups. Having been in the Austin catering scene for more than 10 years, we have successfully worked with many local vendors so chances are we already have experience teaming up with the ones you have chosen (check our preferred vendors list here if you are still looking for ideas).
Fourth, we have superior preparation logistics. No sneak peek is complete without letting you in on our logistics. Rentals are finalized, staff is booked and provided with service details and ready to go for the big day well ahead the event. We don’t improvise.
Days before the celebration, we source the best fresh ingredients from our local partners so our chef and the staff assigned to your event can start prepping the food, drinks, china, glassware, linens and any other specialty rentals that are then carefully packed and transported from our warehouse to your venue for setup the day of. We coordinate every detail with your other vendors from setup to clean up and anything in between.
By the time the first guests arrive our servers are ready to welcome them with signature cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres in a beautifully decorated space, while behind the scenes our chef and his team are well underway into the preparation of a scrumptious meal that you and your guests will rave about for years to come.
Last but not least, we commit to safety. The food industry has been transformed over the last two years and adapted to the reality imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. We take your safety and the safety of your guests and our staff very seriously. That’s why we have adhered to the Caterer’s Promise and have implemented robust Covid-19 safety precautions. By doing so, we have been able to help our clients fulfill their dream of having safe, successful events.
So there you have it! A sneak peek into all the moving pieces that are meticulously put together over time and transformed into a smoothly orchestrated process. This is our value proposition to you and how we strive to guarantee that our clients’ dream events happen.
