There are generally three meals in a day, and everybody has their favorite. However, there’s a fourth meal that has a reputation for being special, delicious, indulgent, and even spectacular. Brunch is often reserved for weekends or special occasions, and it usually involves a greater variety of options than ordinary breakfast or lunch.
But you probably already knew that – and if you’re like a lot of other people, you probably wish you had more brunch opportunities. But life is busy, and it’s not always possible to go out for brunch. That’s one of the reasons why catered brunch is getting more popular.
Let’s just consider business settings, for starters. Catered breakfasts and lunches are relatively common, and they come in all different forms – from croissants and coffee for breakfast to a fully-catered sushi bar for a special corporate event. But when was the last time you attended a corporate brunch with all fixings? It might sound a little too much like mixing business with pleasure, but catered brunch can be a refreshing and exciting addition to the corporate schedule. Creating a relaxed atmosphere with great food can open networking doors, strengthen business teams, and generate meaningful conversations.
Moving away from a business setting, you might wonder: What’s the sense in hiring a caterer to bring brunch to me, instead of simply going out to a popular brunch spot? The number of people in your group is one of the key answers to this. If you have a group of 10, your favorite brunch spot might be able to accommodate you. If your group is 20 or more, there’s very little chance you’ll be able to sit and have brunch together. Sometimes, the logistics just don’t add up. Catered brunch solves that problem by allowing you to maintain control over the setting and venue, allowing you and your guests (or coworkers) to relax and enjoy the meal.
When you’re looking at catered brunch options, you should keep an eye out for companies that offer a wide range of food and drink. Start with fresh-squeezed juices and baked goods (scones, bagels, croissants, etc.). Coffee is also a must.
Now throw in an array of savory breakfast and lunch dishes. Examples can include omelet stations, home fries, eggs benedict, French toast, home fries, pancakes, waffles, quiches, fresh fruit, baked ziti, lasagna, chicken marsala, sandwich platters, and so on. These are the components of a great brunch – but they have to meet the highest quality standards. Otherwise your guests will just be going through the motions – instead of enjoying a truly memorable brunch.
Your go-to caterer for catered brunch
Depending on where you live, there may be dozens of catering companies who are ready and willing to cater your brunch event. The question is, who is going to give you the highest level of quality? Who is going to offer professionalism, great service, restaurant-quality food and beverages, and fair rates? Arguably, you want to look for someone who has a specific brunch menu, and who has generated positive customer reviews specifically pertaining to their brunch service.
