Whether it is a family reunion, corporate gala or a mitzvah celebration, a full-service caterer is the backbone of your event! We not only handle the savory food, but can also provide desserts, corporate branding, service staff, bartending, china, glassware, linens, buffet signage, set up, clean up and so much more. With so many details ahead, we understand that planning an event can seem overwhelming, so you are making the right decision by hiring a full-service caterer like Royal Fig to lessen the stress!
The first decision you will want to consider is the atmosphere you want to create for your guests. The style of dinner service will be one of the largest contributors of how your guests feel and interact at your special event. Casual or formal, structured or free-flowing, here is a breakdown of your options along with the major considerations and budget ranges with each style of service:
The food is cooked FRESH on site, going right from the oven to the table. We set up a full mobile kitchen so we can guarantee we are serving food of the highest quality. Relaxing at their tables, our staff invites your guests to serve themselves from beautiful platters that are passed around the tables. This style of service is very reminiscent of a big family meal at home. Since there is no waiting in line, your guests are served in half the amount of time as a buffet service. That leaves more time for the party!
**Please note that our family style service requires a minimum catering contract between $6000 and $8000. Certain dates and locations may incur a larger minimum. The minimum amount includes food, beverages, staff, service fee, rentals and tax.
Mix, mingle, eat and dance; the party never stops! Food stations create a social, laid back atmosphere that will keep guests engaged and having fun. You do not need a seat for every guest. We encourage a mix of dining tables, cocktail tables and lounge seating, especially since stationed food is easy to eat standing up at a cocktail table. Have fun with your event design and try some non-traditional seating! We recommend 3 to 5 sweet and savory stations spread throughout the event space to encourage guests to move around. There is plenty of space for large centerpieces and decor on your dining tables because salad size plates and flatware are kept up at each station so guests can keep going back for more.

In an effort to keep it “SIMPLE, SEASONAL AND FRESH”, Royal Fig Catering has created a menu designed for the couple who is looking for a high-quality, yet affordable solution to wedding catering. Our buffet and casual dining menus are designed so that extra kitchen staff and equipment aren’t needed on-site. This allows us to lower the menu cost and remove the minimum order requirements.
Plated presentation gives your guests a feeling of elegance. If a formal event is your vision, plated service might be a great fit! Guests will choose their entrée on their RSVP cards. This ensures that any dietary restrictions are addressed and the dinner service is seamless and smooth! Table centerpieces and décor can be as elaborate as you’d like. A plated meal doesn’t require as much space on the table, so let your floral design go over the top!
