Why Taco Catering is King

Kon-Tiki Taco Written by 

Easy set up, easy clean up, less expensive and lots more fun, mobile taco catering may be in its golden age. It solves many event-planning challenges.

Pity the poor party planner. There’s so much to think about, whether your guest list is ten people or a thousand. And in both small and large groups one needs to consider their special needs (hello vegetarians and vegans?), which venues will draw the most people and, ultimately, if the event accomplish its objective.

Wait – did we just say, “accomplish its objective?” Does a party need a reason to exist? Can’t an event just be that – a special thing to do one day where people can socialize and have a good time?

The fact of the matter is every party host and event planner consciously or subconsciously has an objective. It might be simply to return the favor to others who’ve hosted you in the past. Or it might be a major product launch, a shareholders meeting or an offsite task such as a film shoot or a volunteer day building a playground or rain garden. Everyone has something they want to be said or to happen from their event. At the same time, there are always limits to budget and where, when and what an event can be.

This is why tacos are increasingly popular for events. There are several reasons why party planners pick up the phone to call a local taco cart catering company for upcoming occasions:

Easy set up – Mobile taco catering is the key to both venue versatility and ease of set-up. Mobile carts are their own kitchen, negating the need to use only venues with those facilities. Also, as tacos can be hand held, few if any tables are required.

Easy clean up – Your taco catering company will be expert in how to position the mobile carts as well as disposal receptacles. This will basically reduce the need to pick up after diners are finished and keep the event space tidy throughout the meal service.

More fun – The word “fiesta” is closely and appropriately associated with tacos in general. But even if a taco catering company is hired to serve at the wake of a dearly departed relative or friend, there’s a certain joie de’vivre that tacos bring to the occasion.  

Less expensive – Without the need for table service, and minimal cleanup service during the event – mostly, it’s just the mobile taco catering carts that are staffed – a taco-themed menu and event can cost substantially less than other food options. Even the carts are festive in appearance, perhaps allowing the event planner to reduce décor costs.

Taste options/universal appeal – Already most people understand what a taco is, and with quality catering you will have many options because guests get to choose their own fillings.

Yes, the party planner has a lot on her or his mind. But with so many options available today, tacos “served simply” among them, hosts at least have some simple solutions available to them.
