Should I Hire a Caterer? 

You’re having a party, a get-together, a soiree, a book club meeting, girls’ night, movie night, whatever the occasion — you’re in charge of its success. Pretty soon you find yourself sweating how you’re going to feed all those people — and what, exactly, you’ll feature on the menu?

Maybe you start by scouring Pinterest for the best party recipes. You agonize in each aisle of the grocery store, desperate to find the right ingredients and stock up on enough snacks. How much food do you actually need? Did everyone RSVP? What if your recipes don’t come out right? Was this really worth the hassle?

Stop spinning and consider a catered charcuterie board instead. Spare yourself the headache and get excited about hosting for a change.

Save Time, Stop Stressing.

Hiring a caterer means you don’t have to sweat the details. Your caterer takes care of the worry for you, meaning you won’t need to spend your limited time finding recipes or going to the grocery store. All you have to do is figure out what type of food and any specific ingredients you want, and we take care of the rest. j.b. smorgasboard even uses local produce whenever possible and even offers vegan and gluten-free options, sure to satisfy the most discerning guest.

Speaking of picky eaters, we also offer specially-designed and customizable kids’ boards. So, if you need ants on a log, along with a traditional antipasto, you got it!  

Keep a Few Extra Bucks

Buying all those ingredients and any supplies you might need adds up quickly. Plus, you might buy more food than you need, which can lead to waste. Hiring a caterer means you’re asking the pros to shop and prep for you, which can translate as dollars saved.

Feel Confident You’ve Got Enough

We can help you plan your event to make sure there’s plenty of food for your invited guests. Our boards come in various sizes so even if you’re only hosting a few people, you’re still covered.

Variety is the Spice of Life

Or so the saying goes and we are inclined to agree. That’s why the j.b. smorgasboard menu features many different boards to pick from, so you can decide what works for you. Tell us what you’d like to serve at your event and we will make sure there are exciting options and combinations of complementary flavors to choose from.

Your Kitchen Stays Clean

There’s nothing quite like hosting a successful bash and then being left to clean up afterwards. Dishes piled high in the sink, crumpled napkins, a Jenga-like stack of used cutlery — who needs it? Besides, you might not even own enough of these items to accommodate all of your guests, depending on the length of your list. Hiring your local caterer means you don’t need to worry about any of this, least of all a sink full of dishes.

No matter what kind of event you’re throwing, j.b. smorgasboard can take the burden off your shoulders so you can enjoy your party, too. Check out our menu today and place your order for a board custom-designed to delight the guests at your next event.
