Planning the catering for a corporate event is a tricky business. Slip up once and you could forever be known as the guy who left half of the HR team with nothing to eat or completely neglected to include a vegetarian option for the MD. With a little planning and the assistance of a great corporate catering company, you can pull off an event that everyone will be talking about for all the right reasons. Here are some top tips to get you started from Ross & Ross, a catering company based in Oxfordshire.
We don’t want anyone left out, so ask your attendees ahead of time if they have any special requirements for the menu. Check for vegetarians/vegans, dairy free, wheat free and religious diets. A good corporate catering company should be able to work with you to make sure that there are options for all!
Different menus suit different meetings. If the food is the hero of your event, such as a company party or social mixer, then the food can take centre stage and help to soak up any celebratory alcohol. However, if you’re holding a meeting and need refreshments to keep the delegates going, bear in mind how long they’ll have to eat and what can be eaten in the boardroom.
Corporate catering is often limited by the space available. Bear this in mind when planning your menu, especially if you want to have people milling around and socialising. If you’d like to have a large number of people in a small space, why not consider a drop in event? That way you can stagger the crowds.
