Event catering

Do you cater for events far and wide, providing bespoke menus for a range of client requirements, from weddings to conferences? See how Kafoodle can help you manage your costs and communication.

Managing event catering with ease

In order to deliver the best event experience you can and ensure guests feel confident dining at your venues, you must be able to easily manage all of their special dietary requirements and enhance communication between venues, event staff and guests, whilst still making a profit.

Stay allergy compliant

40% of the UK population consider an allergy or intolerance before deciding what to eat

Save time and money

Without a food management system, 17 minutes out of every hour is lost to employees doing back office tasks

Enhance customer service

69% of allergy sufferers have encountered staff lacking knowledge of menu content and the severity of their allergy

The UK ‘free-from’ market will be worth £673m by 2020, as 27% of Brits say they avoid certain ingredients as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Kafoodle automatically shows the allergens and then the system links up to front of house, so staff can look up the dishes through a tablet while they're on the floor. Kafoodle allows them to get to the information really quickly, from the same place, every time.
