When you are hosting a corporate event, every detail matters and that includes food. You are creating an experience, which means you need to make choices that appeal to everyone. That can be a difficult task to tackle when you’re dealing with a large group of people. You have to think about the mess, dietary restrictions, utensils, plates, and all the details. Luckily, you can enlist the services of a professional caterer to provide you with the perfect menu. But in the meantime, take these catering ideas on board for your next corporate event.
With Health In Mind
If you have a health-conscious crowd, you can cater to their preferences with nutritious nibbles perfect for increasing concentration and boosting energy. Fresh juices, an omelet station, and fresh fruit salad. It’s as delicious as they deserve, but it will help them keep their brains in the game. A fresh fruit and yogurt bar provide a punch of protein to keep the team fuller for longer.
Whether you prepare a brunch buffet for the ages or it’s a sit-down meal, a hearty brunch is a great way to fuel your guests and provide them with sure favorites. The benefit of opting for brunch is you can combine the best bits of breakfast and lunch and it can be served hot, cold, or in a combination of both. A waffle station, Eggs Benedict, assorted quiches, and fresh fruit are a delicious treat sure to satisfy all of your guests.
Don’t forget the fresh fruit juice and hot beverages – tea, coffee, and herbal teas too.
Cold-cut platters or sandwich platters are a simple choice, and they’re also delicious. But, if you want to make an impression at your corporate event, there are some exciting ways you can make lunch stand out.
A hot lunch of baked ziti, eggplant parmesan, and vegetables is a great way to stand out. But you can take it up a notch with a BBQ luncheon that combines brisket, ribs, beans, and cornbread! Or, opt for a hot and cold buffet.
While not everyone lives meat-free, if you know vegetarians or vegans are in attendance, you can lean meat-free. Whether you opt for a continental breakfast buffet, a yogurt and fruit bar, a hot lunch of penne with vodka sauce and cavatelli and broccoli, or a full range of salads to choose from – there are plenty of ways to provide a meat-free meal for the ages.
Let Them DIY
You could also opt for a DIY approach by providing a wide range of hot dishes, sandwich fixings, and sides to allow the guests to pick and choose what they would like. It gives the guests time to move around and network with each other as well. Of course, the DIY doesn’t need to be DIY, you can achieve the same effect by calling a professional caterer like DRJ Catering.
