What is the Difference between Off-Premise and On-Premise Catering?

October 17, 2018 | Catering

In order to understand the pros and cons of on and off-premise catering, it is important to understand what each means. On-premise caterers provide food that is prepared for the event in a kitchen at the same location, while off-premise caterers transport the food from an off-site kitchen to the event venue.


As an on-premise caterer, Paramount Events is able to provide unparalleled service to clients by utilizing our on-site kitchen and serving staff, our restaurant Eden, and multiple beautifully decorated venues all within the same space. Oftentimes, off-premise catering can provide delicious food during tastings and immediately after preparation, but the transportation and reheating of food at a venue with no kitchen space leaves little room for perfection. As well, staff that cooks and works on-site is much more familiar with the space and can assist the client and guests through most situations. We believe that in order for guests to experience the fullest potential of what we can provide, incorporating on-premise catering is essential to hosting a successful event.
