Waiters, waitresses, and busboys are frequently dispatched to prepare tables and serve meals during sit-down dining occasions. The caterer may send personnel to put up chafing dishes, bowls, and platters full of food, replace them, and serve food to guests during buffets and casual parties. A manager will often direct the wait staff and supporting personnel at banquet hall events and wedding receptions, such as coat check people. A salesperson assists the customer in selecting food, location, and decorations that are within his budget and setting up the billing mechanism before the event.

Various Measures by Service Providers, Further Driving the Catering Services Market
