Hiring a corporate lunch caterer is an awesome addition to your employee benefits package, whether they deliver lunch on a frequent basis or for special occasions.
However often you work with one, there are three main things to think about when choosing the right office catering option for your event.
The size of your event.
Catering to a group of hundreds requires way more efficiency than catering to a group of 10. With a smaller group, you can call your favorite restaurant and place a to-go order but imagine how long you’d be on the phone placing an order specific to 200 hundred people!
Instead, look for caterers that serve buffet-style, which works for large and small groups. Opt for a caterer that serves healthy options for even more benefits (such as productivity and lifestyle support).
An outdoor event may have more flexibility than an indoor event. For example, you could hire food trucks if your event is in a park, while being indoors allows your caterer access to your breakroom and kitchen for easy set-up. Choose a caterer that works best for your work environment and event location.
About 10% of Americans have food allergies, not to mention the many more with dietary preferences, such as veganism. As your company is more than likely to have employees with some type of dietary needs, ask your caterer if common allergens can be served on the side and opt for a customizable style so employees can choose based on their needs and preferences.
