In honour of Mexican heritage, North Americans celebrate this culture by participating in Cinco de Mayo. This is holiday consisting of parties, events, parades and entertainment, featuring traditional food, like tacos and Mexican dancers. Like St.Patrick’s Day, it is a point of history that is either known or celebrated across the world – and more so by the North American settlers!
According to history.com, “Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867)”. Hosting a party is only one of the many ways people celebrate it today.
Rather than just buying a piñata, a case of Corona, lime slices and Mexican hats, here are 5 reasons why you need to hire a server when hosting an event for Cinco de Mayo this May weekend.
This is an obvious but yes it is convenient to have a trained individual execute the serving. Specialized positions, such as serving, bartending, means these individuals are experienced and can give you quicker, and more convenient ways to run the party. For example, if you’re having a cocktail bar by the door, it’s easy to pre-make them so they are ready to serve.
Hiring a server, bartender or support staff means a more organized party. Depending on the capacity of your Cinco de Mayo party, hiring event staff will help you develop a system that works. Last thing you want is to have thirsty or hungry guests, and not enough hands to keep up. Hiring a server will smooth out any wrinkles and give you the peace of mind to still stay on top of the celebration.
Some event staffing companies, like Bartendo, allow you to request a themed service. This immediately ties in all other elements to your Cinco de May party. Get your servers and bartenders to dress up with Mexican heritage and rent a portable bar. Better yet, you customize a sign to your desire! Along with themed, cups, cutlery and other essentials, prepare your servers by deciding on a list of themed cocktails to serve at the party.
Most event staff companies hire using a roster system. After going through a hiring process, these individuals are put on a roster where the event staffing company can send individuals what event requests they decide. From there, they can accept and then work the party. This creates an opportunity for like-minded people to work together and there’s a chance of them being the perfect for you!

The best part is you can even request the same server next time you host an event too!
Thanks to the improvement with the event, service, food and drink industry, people across the world can enjoy celebrations filled with hospitality, organization and sincerity. This is why you need to hire a server, and/or other event staff, for your Cinco De Mayo celebration.
