Planning an event is no small task. Not only that, but the catering costs will likely take up the larger part of your budget aside from your venue. At Gallucci’s Catering, we truly believe that you get what you pay for in the catering world. Having you visit our website tells us that you are looking in the right direction in your search for a caterer who offers beautiful presentation, phenomenal food quality and taste, and unsurpassed service. As you are selecting your caterer, there are several things that you will want to know about each other.
At Gallucci’s Catering, we prefer to get to know our prospective clients by first scheduling a consultation. An initial consultation can be done in person, or by phone, whichever is most convenient for you. This allows us to gather the information that is needed in order to put together the most complete proposal possible. Once received, reviewed, and adjusted as necessary, we are happy to schedule a private/complimentary tasting for up to six (6) guests so that you may taste the menu items you are considering having served at your event. There is no obligation to book prior to the tasting. We are simply excited at the idea of you tasting our food as we believe it will make your decison a much easier one.
The first pieces of information needed by Gallucci’s Catering are the date of your event , the number of guests you are expecting, and the location at which your event will take place. We do many events in the course of a year. In fact, the large staff we employ allows us the freedom to gracefully serve at several events in one day. Chances are that we will be able to serve you. However, we do end up with a few weekends during the busy wedding season where we simply cannot add any further events to our calendar. We enjoy placement on many catering lists throughout the greater Tacoma area and are also happy to provide service at any venue which does not require the use of an exclusive caterer.
Gallucci’s Catering is a full service catering company offering custom catering. The service we provide can include as little, or as much, as you need. In addition to the menu and all associated items, we offer bartending service as well as a full line of rental items (e.g. tables, chairs, linens, decor, etc.). Having served the greater Tacoma area for the past 27 years, we have accumulated enough items to fill our 20,000 square foot warehouse. If you wish to rent items that we do not own, we are happy to procure them for you.
Food presentation is extremely important to us as is the quality and taste. As far as cuisine goes, there is little that we have not, or cannot, prepare with great skill. We are happy to prepare a dish using your prized family recipe if you wish and are able to accommodate special menu requests (e.g. gluten free, vegan, paleolithic, etc.). Most menu items are prepared on site so that we are able to provide you and your guests with the best product possible. However, Gallucci’s Catering does enjoy the use of a state of the art catering kitchen located in Federal Way.
Each event we cater is managed by an Event Captain who will oversee the entire event to ensure that all things are handled as smoothly, and effectively, as possible. This person is introduced to the client several days prior to the event. All staff members are required to dress in black slacks, black dress shoes with black socks, a white tuxedo shirt, and a black Gallucci’s Catering apron.
In future blogs, we will expand on each of the above (as well as many more that could easily have been included), one at a time. However, we wanted you to have this general information, compacted, for the time being.
