Catering Company NJ

Be it your wedding, in which case there can be no mistakes, everything has got to be as great as it can possibly be! And catering has a huge impact on the guests on your special day. Or be it a corporate meeting where a large group of professionals have gathered, hiring a catering service saves time and keeps everyone interested; or a social event gathering – fundraisers, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, bar mitzvah birthdays, anniversaries and BBQs, catering is what makes or spoils the day!

The basic job of a caterer is to prepare, deliver and present food to their clients as exquisitely as possible. Along with food, they take care of almost everything else, from decorations and sitting arrangements to music and lightning. The entire ambiance depends upon the type of catering company you have hired.

Catering Company NJ
So before you make the hard decision of hiring a catering company NJ for you big day, we at Richfield Regency want you to keep the following things in mind:

Go for just one catering company
What people often do is hire different caterers for food, dessert, drinks, and decorations. While it opens you to a variety of options but at the same time, it results in a big chaos. It is better to look for a single catering company that has a renowned reputation for the work they do. The benefits of hiring just one company for everything is that it makes it a lot easier for you, you don’t have to run here and there at the day of the event and it also costs you a lot less as compared to hiring different companies. We have been catering all sorts of events for many years, we are very capable of producing whatever it is that you need for this catered event.

Ask them about package deals
Choosing the just the right things, food, drinks, and desserts can be quite a task, not to forget the confusion that it creates till the very end moment. To avoid such confusion, what you can do instead of choosing it all separately is ask for a package deal. Most catering companies have really good, compact package deals listed out in variety according to the kind of event. It saves both your time and money. At Richfield Regency, we have several menus to choose from and we can work with your dietary needs or restrictions. 

Ask them about what different they can do
Once you have asked all sorts of questions about their services, discuss about doing something different that makes your event stand out. If you have something in particular to try, ask them if they are flexible and willing to give it a shot. You can set up a theme and go with the decorations accordingly. There can be several ideas about how the cake and desserts are supposed to look, what goes where, what color combinations would look best and the list goes on. Quality and creativity has been at the heart of what we can do since the beginning.

We at Richfield Regency would want you, the customer to fully contented, our managers and staff will be really cooperative and more than happy to make the big day turn out really special for you.

Corporate Events Venue in NJ

The most crucial part of organizing a corporate event is choosing the venue. The place you choose has to be really elegant, spacious with suitable ambiance. But choosing a venue itself depends upon several things like the number of people, kind of event, location and other things. We at Richfield Regency want to offer you some tips on choosing a corporate events venue in NJ

Here are some things you will have to take care of before hosting a corporate event:

Guests
The very basic requirement before hosting any event is to know the number of guests. You can only begin shortlisting the venue when you have an average idea of the number of people that are supposed to be there. The guests will determine the location depending on where most of them are from, following food, travel arrangements and everything else.

Whether it's for a smaller event or for over one hundred people, we can accommodate the number of guests for your event.
Corporate Events Venue in NJ 
Location
The next key factor is the location. You can only narrow down to few options of the venue if the location is final. If the location is pre-decided, usually when the event is supposed to be held in another city, you need to inform the guests well in time. You will also have to arrange overnight accommodation and travel. And if the event has to be planned at a really short notice, it is best that you pick a location in proximity to the guests.

We are conveniently located in Verona, NJ, right across the street from Verona Park!

Check availability and space
Once the number of guests and location is finalized, start looking for venues. You will have to check if they are available during those dates so start early. Make sure the venue is spacious enough. See to it that it has enough room for meetings, breakout sessions, award dinners and whatever else is involved. Also, before booking check if the rooms available are on the same floor and not too far from each other so that the guests don’t feel disconnected.

Before you book with us you are more than welcome to schedule a tour of our venue and we can discuss how we can all arrange the event so that you and your guests will feel comfortable.

Transportation and parking
The need of transportation will depend upon the location. If the event is going to be held in a distant place that requires certain guests to get there by flight, it is necessary that you make pick up arrangements for them from the airport to the hotel. However, if the event is in the same city transportation will not be an issue. The most you might have to do is arrange for cars or cabs to pick up certain people. The people who are driving to the event are entitled to a safe parking space, so you need to take care of that too.

If you're worried about parking, worry not! We have plenty of parking available on site.

Accommodation services
You must ask what all is included when you book the venue. If the tables and chairs you require for the meeting are available. Wifi will be a basic necessity, make sure the venue has a good range of wifi. Some options may be complementary, some may be not. If there are presentations involved, you will need a projector. You can ask them if they provide it otherwise carry it with you. 

We want you to have as great of an experience as possible, if we can help you by providing accommodations, let us know!

Catering
Most venues have their own caterers, so that’s one job off your hands. All you have to do is finalize the menu. The menu, of course, depends upon the time of the day and choice of guests. The food quality and quantity must be good as these events and long and tiring. Have lots of beverages served to keep the guests refreshed!

At Richfield Regency we have onsite catering and several menus to choose from. We can also accommodate for your guests dietary needs!

Prom Venue in NJ

Prom is most likely the last night that you would see all your high school friends gathered in a place. It marks the end of the high school journey and creates memories that will stick with you for the rest of the night. At the center of exciting issues like picking a date and an outfit is where the prom itself would hold.

There is a shift from using the school hall or gymnasium for prom. This has opened up exciting possibilities for the choice of venue. However, things can really turn sour with a venue that is not suited to your prom needs. For a successful prom, break down your task and get a professional service with a wide range of venues to put you through. Let us take a look at some interesting venue ideas and things to consider before settling on a venue.

The venue
You should select a venue that can expand to meet the demands of the high school class. In New Jersey this can easily add up to at least a few hundred guests or even more. Restaurants cannot really be considered an option because while they do have the capacity to feed hundreds of students and their dates, chances are they do not have the room for all the guests.  Nor would they have the room for dancing.

Well known prom venues in NJ like ours at Richfield Regency have the room for all the guests and chaperones to sit comfortably as they eat. We also have a fine dance floor where they can let loose and have fun.

Things to consider
Prom Venue in NJ

Your theme and attendees
Proms generally come with a theme. You need a venue that allows you to express your theme effectively. The number of attendees will also be a big question to be answered before you make the decision.

We highly recommend and encourage you to take a tour of our venue and let your imagination and ideas about the theme translate into a reality. We want to you to know that with us you can decorate and be as creative as you wish!

Amenities and safety
Look out for basic facilities while touring venues. Your ideal venue should essentially have a good sound system, lights and clean bathrooms. A venue that comes with chairs, tables, linens and has affiliated service providers can help you to save money.

We have been in business for many years and ever since the beginning our priority has always been to provide a state of the art venue and a place to truly make lasting memories.

Our LED lighting will only add to the experience the guests will have at their prom!

Catering
 At the heart of every event is the quality and presentation of food. No matter how appealing the décor is or the sheer ambience of the venue, guests would not forgive a bad meal. The importance of food at events has made it an issue to be settled at the early stage of planning. Different choices are available to the planning but it most times boils down to a choice between on premise catering and off premise catering.

On premise catering involves the food being prepared at the event venue. This means that there would be a kitchen at the event venue where everything concerning food will be handled.

Off premise catering on the other hand involves food being prepared at a location outside the event venue. Typically, the cooking is completed and the food is transported plated and ready to be served. In some cases, some aspects of the cooking are finished up at the venue particularly when the menu choices are exotic and delicate.

At Richfield Regency we allow for either on or off premise catering for your prom. We have several menus to choose from and can adhere to your dietary needs. Whatever you choose, we’ll be happy to help you make it happen.

Things to look out for in choosing an off premise catering company

Referrals
Go a step beyond websites and get people to share their experience from using a particular company. When considering a company, focus on the quality of their food as well as the range of options they offer.

Facilities and equipment.
The job of a good off premise catering service is to get the food delivered safely to the venue. The food must also be delivered while it is hot and fresh. To achieve this, they need top of the range equipment and tools. Inspect their facilities and ask questions when you need clarification.

Experience
It is not enough that the catering service has years of experience between their staff. You should also check for experience relating to your kind of event.

This is particularly important in off premise catering where a premium is placed on the presentation as well as the quality of the food.

Off Premise Catering in NJ

At the heart of every event is the quality and presentation of food. No matter how appealing the décor is or the sheer ambiance of the venue, the food has to match the quality of this event. The importance of food at events has made it an issue to be settled at the early stage of planning. Different choices are available to the planning but it most times boils down to a choice between on premise catering and off premise catering. Today we at Richfield Regency would like to discuss our venue that has the option to go with off premise catering in NJ.

On premise catering involves the food being prepared at the event venue. This means that there would be a kitchen at the event venue where everything concerning food will be handled.

Off Premise Catering in NJ 
Off premise catering on the other hand involves food being prepared at a location outside the event venue. Typically, the cooking is completed and the food is transported plated and ready to be served. In some cases, some aspects of the cooking are finished up at the venue particularly when the menu choices are exotic and delicate.

While on premise catering is accessible with facilities like dishes, tables and linens made available courtesy of the venue, it can prove to be expensive in the long run. With off premise catering you can get the same standard of service or of an even higher quality at a more affordable rate. Plus, you can pick and choose the type of food, the menu, and you aren’t limited by what solely is provided by the venue.

Apart from the obvious benefit of reduction in costs, off premise catering is more efficient. This is because issues are resolved way before the event because of the difficulty in making sudden changes. The off premise catering service basically takes every eventuality into consideration and plans ahead.

Your off catering needs are best handled by a reputable company and we have a list of things to consider before you make your decision.

Wedding Reception Hall in Essex County, NJ

The wedding day is one of the most memorable days for a couple for a number of reasons. One of these is the wedding reception. The wedding reception can make or break this beautiful day. Choosing and organizing the wedding reception hall is one of the first big decisions that a couple will make together. As professionals in the wedding business, we at Richfield Regency have heard many couples wondering how to go about choosing this important venue. As experts, we advise on a few considerations when thinking about the wedding reception hall in Essex county NJ.

Level of the service
Wedding Reception Hall in Essex County, NJ 
Do you need full service or not?  Full service is where everything is catered for from the chairs, utensils, décor, food, entertainment system and pretty much everything else needed in a wedding reception. While this option takes the burden of planning off the shoulders of the couple, your choice is limited.

If you opt for venue only, you will be responsible for everything else. This could give you room to shop according to your budget, but you will have more workload on your wedding plan.

Time of the day
If you are having your reception starting 6 pm it is only advisable you visit the venue at 6 pm and see how it looks like in the evening. Will the lighting be adequate or will you need special lighting? Are there cold drafts coming through? Is there disruptive human activity at that hour? For example, Saturday is a popular wedding day, but popular venues will have something or another going on any Saturday. Visit the place on a Saturday and see if what is going on will be amenable with your reception.

Logistics
The first question we ask any couple looking for a wedding reception hall is the number of guests expected. While the guest list will not be clear early in the planning stages, it is good for a couple to have a good idea of how many people they would like in the reception. The number expected is important to the planner of the venue as they can plan on seating arrangement, air conditioning and other things to make the guests comfortable.

What is your wedding style?
If you plan on a big Greek style wedding, you will probably spend most of the reception time outdoors. You will possibly need the hall only for food and evening dance. Consider how you are styling the wedding so that the hall can fit your entertainment needs.

Distance
What is the distance of the reception venue from the church? Will guests be coming from the locality or far off? Choose a venue that is convenient.  If the majority of your guests live in Essex county, we’re right there for you!
