In today’s price-sensitive economy, more and more brides-to-be are taking off the white gloves and putting on the boxing gloves when selecting their wedding venue. “The catering business is evolving like any other business during this recession. Yes, there are still a number of very fortunate ones out there to whom price does not matter, but for the most part, brides and grooms-to-be and their families are shopping for the best bang for their buck,” states Richard Santore, partner in the Allenhurst, New Jersey commercial real estate firm Bielat Santore & Company, whose agency sells catering complexes and represents a number of catering clientele.
“Our catering clients are saying that they no longer can stand firm on their per plate prices. They are being forced to match or beat competitor pricing in order to book the affair,” continues Santore. It is almost like buying a car. The business has become very price sensitive and people are doing their homework in advance and doing without the pomp and circumstance in order to make their special day both memorable and affordable.
There are a few variables which in many cases overrule a bride’s standpoint on price. The first is the setting: weddings with a water or golf course view, country setting or beautifully adorned gardens usually influence decisions. The second (and this is only in the past few years), is that brides want their wedding to be the only wedding taking place in the facility at that time. So in essence, they are more likely to select the banquet hall that caters to one wedding at a time, making their wedding exclusive.
Bielat Santore & Company now has several magnificent catering complexes available for sale in New Jersey. These establishments are all reputable businesses with years of past operational history, and years of forward bookings. Each has its own unique setting and in certain specific situations, spectacular grounds and views.
