Budget is the first thing you will need to determine. It is a lot easier if you already know what the budget is going to be to make the planning less complicated. We know you want to impress and be lavish on what you’ll feed your colleagues but you may not want to break the company’s bank in doing so. In order to have a good perception of the different things you want to get for the business lunch, start on determining the budget.
The Catering Company
Know that you know the total money you’ll get to spend on, it’s time to choose the catering services company of your choice. A catering services company of your choice should have the following characteristics:
- Offers high quality meal
- Delivers on time (you may need to consider their location or order ahead of time)
- Knowledgeable, meaning they can recommend food packages that’s going to be a winner at the table.
- Courteous (you may need to read reviews about them)
- Has everything you need (delicious food choices, cutleries, napkins, plates, etc.)
If that corporate catering company passes all of the above, then, they are the one for you!
But before ordering, make sure you know the following:
- Number of guests or people attending the business lunch
- Food choices. Make sure to include special diet foods in the menu
- Know whether there would be presentations or lectures
Once you have established the first 2 tips, start on organizing where the lunch will take place. Make sure that the location is accessible to everyone and has the proper space to accommodate all of your attendees as well as the activities that will take place on the said lunch. Make sure you have room for that.
