If you would like to have a hog roast for an important upcoming event, there’s no doubt you want to choose the best company out there to provide your guests with quality meat and a high level of service at an affordable price.
So how to do you ensure the company you choose is the best one? There are a few things you need to do to ensure you get what you pay for. The first thing to do is to have an idea in your head of what you want, that way it will be easier for you to match a company with your needs and wants.
So write down how many people you are expecting to cater for, what type of roast you want – hog, spit or lamb, and whether you want sides and salads or whether you will provide them yourself. You will also need to decide if you want to supply the plates and cutlery etc or whether you want the company to.
Once you have all of this in your mind you should start doing some online research. Get yourself a list of five companies that look credible and have easy to use websites with plenty of information on them. Once you have your shortlist, see if you can find some customer references, if they have them it is a good sign the company is good at what they do. Now you can start the phone calls and obtain quotes.
When you’re on the phone with the company you can usually gauge how good the company is by how you are treated on the phone. Is the person you are speaking to knowledgable, curteous and helpful? Write comments down next to the company name about how the customer service was. Just becuase you call up and get a really cheap quote doesn’t mean they are the company for you. Did they run through the set up with you? Or let you know how long it would take them to cook and serve? What about the quality of their meat? Where is it sourced from?
You want people to answer all your questions and do so in a professional and polite manner. If they sound professional on the phone and have a professional site with customer references available to view, chances are the company should be able to provide you with a quality hog roast service.
