During a tasting, one of the questions our staff gets most often is about the broasted chicken. It’s not where the chicken came from or the number of calories per serving. It’s about how we can ensure it will stay crispy for their guests. We understand completely. Here at Renard’s, we’ve made an art of keeping food fresh and delicious from the moment it’s prepared in our Green Bay kitchen to the moment it’s available to our client’s hungry guests. Read on for some of catered food secrets.
An hour max travel time
One of the ways Renard’s ensures food is hot and delicious is limiting our travel distance. For the most part, we only cater food at venues within an hour of Green Bay (although some exceptions do exist, so call if you have questions).
The reason we only travel an hour is to ensure your menu choices stay hot if they should be hot, and cold, if they should be cold. Hot food is always the last food item packed into our catering vans in hot boxes. Once we get to the venue, it’s the first thing removed and placed in warming ovens.
Served just before dinner
Once the hot food is in the warming ovens, we work on set up and food presentation. Our staff makes catered food look amazing and really add to whatever Green Bay event your are hosting, be it a wedding, corporate function, shower or celebration of life.
Our staff doesn’t set out the hot food until 15 minutes before dinner actually starts. That way we are ensuring the food is closed and hot for as long as possible.
Working with venues
Renard’s has a great relationship with many event venues around Green Bay, which helps us ensure food arrives delicious to guests. For example, Black Sheep and Ledgecrest both will call us the week of an event to check-in. They want to have what we need, exactly as we want it. This means enough cooler space set aside for our food, as well as tables set up according to our preferences.
Even upcoming Green Bay venues, such as the Barn at Sunset, are working with us. The architects have reached out and met with Renard’s several times to get professional catering recommendations. They want to ensure Renard’s has exactly the food set up equipment needed to provide delicious catered food to this soon to be Green Bay event facility.
We take great care in delivering amazing catered food to our customers, no matter what they are celebrating in the Green Bay area. That’s why we established practices for food traveling and how it is served at events. It helped make our catering business stand out in Green Bay, and let us assure our customers that the broasted chicken will indeed have a delicious crunch.
