Corporate events can be boring and monotonous; they can last for hours and attendants can lose interest in the issue at hand quickly. Your next corporate event can be a roaring success when you plan to cater it. Catering can add a sense of fun and incentivize people to attend. Everyone loves a meeting with food! A meal and even just some snacks can help keep people’s attention and snap them out of boredom. Here are a few tips for when you decide to cater your next corporate event.
Leave it to the Professionals
When it comes to throwing a successful event at work, you should leave the food to the professionals. Trying to buy or prepare food on your own can be stressful and anxiety-inducing; you should focus more on the content of the event and less on the food served. Likewise, potlucks are nothing but bad luck in most situations. In a potluck situation, the dishes that are brought by your coworkers often lack cohesion as they probably will not taste good served all together. Also, there is always the risk that people will forget to bring a dish. Take ‘food service’ off your long to-do list and leave the catering to us.
Food Preferences and Restrictions
Especially today, there are so many food allergies and specific diets that must be catered to when thinking about providing food at your next corporate event. First, you should plan ahead to ask everyone who is coming to the event about any food allergies or food restrictions that they have. After you have compiled a list of each of these, you can tailor your catered menu to these. Abundance Catering offers gluten-free and vegan menus and can even adjust certain menu items to meet your needs.
Let Attendees Choose
One way to get people excited for your next corporate event is to send a selection of menu items with your invitation to the meeting. This way, employees can select what they would like to eat and look forward to their meal on that day. Giving people the option to choose what they eat at a corporate event is a great way to gain their favor and ensure that they will have a great time.
