COSTS & COSTS: There are many considerations that must be made when you select corporate catering. One of these is what is to be done with the food once it leaves your office. Other considerations include pricing, and whether or not you will be charged for delivery. There are also food choices that you might find better than others, depending on the nature of the event, and the amount of people who will be attending. A catering company should be able to help you make these decisions.
Menu: Every day events require a different menu. While you may want a traditional lunch, lunches do not need to be long affairs. You can have a quick meeting (or conference call) and decide to have a lunch buffet. Catering companies can help you design something suitable for your needs. If your company holds meetings every day, it is wise to have a few different lunches every day so that there is something available for everyone. Even if you only decide to have lunch one time a week, having different lunches available to choose from can make it easier to cater to everyone.
Dinners: It is almost expected that corporate catering services will offer a variety of different courses. Every day, corporations like to have a great way to spend their money on their food. They can vary things like server service, appetizers, and even desserts. This is a great way for your caterer to get your organization’s name out to a broader audience.
Private lunches: Many businesses like to spend time with their employees. However, these lunches can be rather formal affairs. When you are booking corporate catering for your company, you can offer short formal lunches that fit in with your schedule. This can make your clients feel relaxed rather than pressured at a time where they need to be more productive.
Individual orders: Most caterers understand that each person in an office is different. For this reason, they make sure that they accommodate each customer’s requests. Some caterers offer individual orders, where the client can pick out the menu that they prefer, and then order it themselves. This eliminates the stress of choosing a menu and then trying to figure out how to fit it all into an event that you already have an agenda for. Some corporate catering companies also offer individual lunch packages, where the client can pick out a meal that fits within the price range that they have decided on and then order it on their own.
There are a number of other things that you can do to take care of all of your catering menus needs. While corporate catering menus tend to be large in size, they can still take care of some smaller requests. If you are working with a small group, consider catering to them first. This way, they will get a taste of your restaurant’s quality food before committing to a large group.
