Whether you’re a start-up or a huge company, it’s likely that you’ll have an event in the future. Business meetings, conferences and get-togethers are all excellent options for networking, however they can also be a challenge to organise.
One thing makes corporate events stand out from the pack- the food. Choosing delicious food for attendees will ensure that everyone has a good time, and your event is memorable and relaxed.
Hiring a caterer is an excellent way to draw attention to the fact that this is an important event. It gives credibility to your business and shows you’re a professional, meaning you’ll make more important contacts.
For startups, it can be tempting to self-cater your corporate event. However, this means that you’re likely to be focusing your energies on providing food, instead of connecting with people who can help move your business forward.
Showing up to your corporate event frazzled, after spending days in the kitchen and dealing with all of the problems that arise when you self-cater, is not a good look. You’re unlikely to impress attendees, and, unless you have some serious skills in the kitchen, your food is unlikely to as well.
Flavours offer corporate catering that is cost-effective, delicious, and guaranteed to impress. Catering companies have full-sized, commercial kitchens, plenty of staff, experience, delicious recipes, and all the equipment you need to ensure your event is a success.
Instead of stressing about what you’ll serve attendees, you can instead focus on your speech, the event itself, and mingling with potential contacts- which is the point of the event in the first place.
You may find that you have a staff member who offers to cater the event, however this is sometimes a bad idea. Unless you know that this person is an incredible cook, and has the time and experience to cater for a large crowd, and can do it for much less than a catering company, there is little point in using someone who isn’t a professional.
It’s easy to assume that a catering company will be expensive, however Flavours will actually usually end up being the smartest choice. Since they buy their food in bulk, have multiple staff members and years of experience, they can provide amazing food and service for close to the same price as doing it yourself, and for a fraction of the stress.
You’ll be able to organise your next corporate event easily and quickly, and focus on the important details. Hiring a catering company is as easy as picking up the phone and telling them if you need any particular types of food and if any guests have any dietary concerns or allergies.
Instead of cleaning up after the event, you can go home and take a well-deserved nap, keep track of all of your business cards, and plan your next move. For your next corporate event, be sure to hire a caterer.
