Eating at work is something you might do every day. Perhaps you are one of the fortunate employees of a corporation that has invested in a nice cafeteria system. Finding a quick bite between meetings or appointments during your everyday work week is one thing, but corporate events are different. They need to be special.
Every year in the United States, there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 million different events and meetings held in the corporate sector. In the United States meetings industry, over $122 billion is spent year after year. Corporate catering isn’t just a niche business, it is a specialty area that makes memorable events extra special.
If you are looking to celebrate a holiday or a milestone, show appreciation for your employees or clients, or host any kind of meeting or conference, you already have enough on your plate, as it were. Events production is an art and a science that is best left to the professionals who do these events for a living.
Here are three reasons you need to work with a caterer for your next big corporate event.
1.) Caterers handle everything.
When it comes to handling corporate events, caterers can handle everything for you. Especially if you hire a caterer with an event planner, all you have to do is tell them where you want the location to be and they will take care of the rest.
Many times, for example, you might not know the dietary restrictions for some of your guests. According to a recent Dinova survey, 78% of corporations need to include vegetarian options and 64% incorporate gluten-free options at events. It is details such as these that get taken care of by the best caterers.
2.) Caterers provide experienced and professional staff.
If you have ever been to a corporate event that was catered and hardly even noticed the staff, that means they are some of the best around. A professional and experienced staff will be quick, efficient, and elegant. When you find a caterer that can provide you with this kind of service, you know you need to keep their number close at hand for future events.
3.) Caterers provide you with helpful, professional advice.
You might have a really good idea about how you want your next corporate event to go, but in case you get stuck on some of the details, a full-service caterer will be able to help you with the advice you will need to make the event as spectacular or as intimate as you would like it to be.
A full-service catering company is something you will likely use time and again. When you have successful corporate events, whether on your company property or on some off-site location, you can most often trace that success, at least in part, back to the catering company you choose.
