What types of catering yours have?
We have two general ‘types’ of catering:
On-premise catering: the food is prepared at a kitchen on-site.
Off-premise catering: the food is prepared at another location and delivered to the event.

Within these types of catering, what kind of catering service styles that Champions Catering use?
A plated dinner service is a seated multi-course meal. This traditional style is ideal for formal events, but can be pricey and requires a more extensive serving staff than less formal options.
Buffet tables are a casual option that allow more choices for guests and require less serving staff. A serve-yourself-style meal, however, means guests are likely to eat more food, which can eat away at the budget.
Food stations are similar to buffet-style catering: Tables are arranged throughout the venue, usually with a station for each entrée, sides, salad, and soup. Lines may be shorter than at a traditional buffet, but this layout requires more room to fit the stations.
Cocktail-style—with passed or buffet-style hors d’oeuvres—can range from elegant to light and casual. This style is popular at venues with limited seating space, but can be a challenge if the area is crowded.
Action stations are similar to a buffet, except meals are prepared as attendees watch the show. Action stations require more space, so ensure your event floor plan allows enough room.
Family-style meals are a serve-yourself style meal. Guests plate their own meals from communal platters placed on the table.
