NYC catering companies have enough on their plate without adding on the taxing responsibility of also hiring catering staff. Finding the perfect catering wait staff, with the right training and experience, who will have the mature attitude to arrive to the event on time and carry out their responsibilities expertly, is no easy feat to not only locate but to recruit.
The food service and also the hospitality industry in general, will all chime in woefully together that they encounter extremely high turnover rates — it is part and partial to the nature of this industry. The turnover rate is more than double for catering wait staff and a factor of 5 for restaurant servers compared to the turnover rate in other industries. High turnover ultimately means these workers have many options when it comes to looking for new jobs, which creates a pretty competitive environment for those businesses looking to hire the best staff. It becomes quite literally, a quest for finding the diamond in the rough.
As a caterer you have to be juggling a thousand things at once, worrying about training staff in proper table service, food safety, and handling large events is not something you want to throw on top of your pile of responsibilities.
