Because you will want to compare prices and food choices between catering services, set up several lists with the same questions so you can keep your records organized.
When you talk to every business, be sure to ask questions such as: Do you provide all the linen, tables, etc.? This can save money if Caterer provides all these services because if not, you might have to rent this from another vendor.
