Catering Season is starting in the UK. Are you prepared?


Catering Season is starting in the UK. Are you prepared?

With the onset of warmer weather, more and more people are going to be heading out to make the most of the sunny weather. With the UK becoming increasingly cosmopolitan, hungry customers are trying new and varied foods more than ever before. These range from street foods, vegan shops and ethnic food stalls as well as, the more traditional ice cream and burger vans.

Coffee shops, cafés and restaurants will undoubtedly be thinking about putting tables and chairs outside in the coming weeks as the weather warms up. More customers will be opting to sit in the sun, whether to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine with lunch. With the growing number of outside diners comes the additional risk of trips, falls, spillages and collisions with the passing public. Would you be fully insured in the event of an accident?

The start of Spring also signifies the start of the wedding season and many happy couples are now choosing catering companies with mobile catering services to keep their guests well fed on their big day. Increasingly, couples are now opting for a more relaxed catering style in the form of cold buffets, finger food and festival style food vans. One thing is certain, however, that whether you are offering a sit-down fine dining menu or a less formal selection of tasty treats, you will need to make sure you are covered in the event that anything should go wrong on the day.

As well as weddings, many companies chose to hold team building days during the summer months. BBQs and hog roasts are a popular choice at such events, usually supplied by local catering companies. Fairs, festivals and fetes are popular attractions on sunny days, where you can usually find a whole range of different catering styles. If your business provides succulent roast pig and stuffing, or burgers, hotdogs and ice creams, no doubt you will find the summer months your busiest time. It is therefore important to make sure you are fully covered for any eventuality to make sure business runs smoothly for the whole of the season. You certainly don’t want your most profitable time of the year cut short by an unseen mishap that you were not prepared for!

Whether your catering business operates from a van, a café or a restaurant, it is important that you are correctly insured to ensure you are fully covered and ready for the new wave of customers who will inevitably be queueing up to taste your dishes in the coming months. The smallest unseen eventuality could prove to be very costly – an accident or an injury or something as simple as your freezer breaking down and all your food being spoilt.
