Caterer West Gilgo Beach NY


5 star ratingI have eaten food catered from here at two different parties. Both times exceptional. The meat was fresh and delicious and the sides were very good too. Makes me want to go visit the store and see what else is cooking!

5 star ratingBreakfast / Lunch on a whole other level.

We have been using Prime for a few months now for our lunch time selections and the whole office is loving them.

I had seen them for some time but they are a tad far from the office so I never gave them a second thought until I learned a few months ago that they delivered.  We checked and they were willing to deliver to our office.

After trying them the first time we were hooked.  They will fax you a daily menu of specials and such and we have never had a bad anything from there - ever.

They have a chicken burger that is killer- but as I just stated, everything we have gotten so far is just top notch.

At this point, I have coworkers who are ordering dinner to be delivered with their lunch so that they don't have to cook when they get home!

I've never set foot in the place but I've seen their website and it looks nice- someone else can review the actual brick and mortar location.

Parking is on the street where they are located.

What You Should Know About Off Premises Catering

When you are planning your next big special event, one of the big decisions you have to make is what to do about the event catering. Your celebration could be spectacular if you choose your Long Island catering company wisely. Unfortunately, the other side of that coin is that you could plan poorly and have a special occasion turn sour. Choosing the right catering company could make or break your big party. In your event catering planning, there are many factors to consider. One of the most important things to think about is whether your catering is going to be done on premises or off premises. Do you know the difference? In the article below, we will let you in on some of the things you should know if you decide to get your special event catered off premises.

What is Considered Off Premises Catering?

Simply, off premises catering means that the catering companies you work with will prepare the food they serve away from their regularly used facility. This is a pretty convenient option for the consumer, however not every corporate catering company can provide the same level of service when it comes to off premises catering. There are some pretty distinguishing characteristics for off premises caterers. They are classified into three separate groups:

  • Party Food Catering: These types of catering companies specialize in providing food for special events. The staff is focused solely on food production and do not participate in the planning of your party, as is the case with event catering. With party food catering, the client is responsible for the setup of the venue as well as cleaning up afterward
  • Buffet Caterers: Buffet caterers are focused on serving hot food. This food is made in their own facility and then delivered to the venue where the event is taking place. Buffet caterers will seal the food in hot containers for travel.
  • Full Service Off Premise Caterers: In this scenario, the food is provided and served, but it is also prepared at the venue. Full service off premises caterers will also take part in the preparation and the cleanup of the event as well as providing wait staff.

Advantages of Off Premises Catering

Having your catering done off premises can provide some key benefits to your event. Off premises catering can be an attractive alternative to more common event scenarios like banquet halls or country clubs, or standard wedding catering fare. Off premises catering also allows the client to make his or her event a more customized and specific event than that of inside catering companies.

One of the biggest advantages of going the off premises catering route is the variety in the menu. Off premises caterers tend to be more experiences in creating custom menus with specific food tastes in mind. If you hire an off premises catering company, chances are you are opening the doors to some very creative and unique food choices.

Passionate Work Ethic

Not to say anything negative about in house caterers, but there comes a certain sense of urgency with an off premises catering team. They are used to creating a custom experience for their clientele. They also have the intensity of meeting deadlines at various locations, so their passion for their work is quite apparent. There is a strong sense of work ethic with off premises caterers that is rarely seen in the world of on premises catering.

Whichever route of catering company you choose to go, rest assured that your event will be dealt with professionalism and priority. This is especially true for Prime Catering! We have been a top Long Island catering company for years, and we look forward to serving you up some delicious food for your next special event.
