I am pretty sure that everyone has heard of buffet catering before. But what about mini buffets? What makes them different? What kinds of events are suited for mini buffet catering? This article will answer all your queries!
What are mini buffets?
Mini buffets often come in disposable trays that are dropped off at the location. Most of them come along with disposable cutlery, napkins and cups depending on the type of mini buffet ordered.
How are mini buffets and buffets different?
What makes mini buffets different from buffets is that buffets require set up while mini buffets don’t. This means that customers do not need a huge space for the buffet tables to be set up. This means that mini buffets are great for any cosy party and of course, free from the mess and hassle of buffets.
What kind of events are mini buffets suited for?
Mini buffets are great for events with a smaller number of people like housewarming parties or get togethers. Buffets typically cater for a larger quantity of people. Also, mini buffets are great if you face any space constraint as they take up a much smaller space as compared to a full buffet set up.
