Looking to feed your business’s guests and employees with breakfasts, lunches and dinners without having to cook? Need to stay under budget and still deliver a quality experience? Then you’ll want to consider corporate buffet catering: a way to cut costs and improve food quality by outsourcing meals. Why It’s Good for Employees Most people like having the power to make choices. This is the biggest advantage of this layout and serving style: it lets everyone decide what they’d like to eat and drink. Specifically, buffets give your staff members the ability to pick the exact dishes they want and the quantities they want them in. They’re a popular choice for lunches, because they make it easy for people to get the food they want - especially if you offer “make your own” sandwich and salad options. Something else corporate workers appreciate is savings. Whether you decide to make your meals free or ask employees to contribute, the price per person is bound to be cheaper than eating out or ordering in. This is the other reason employees like this style of catering. Last but not least, there’s the simple fact that this layout makes it easy to mingle and socialize! Why It’s Good for Organizations Compared to plated meals and serving stations, buffets tend to require little waiting staff. They require save space, since they only use one large table (or row of tables) to serve as many dish options as you and your service provider agree on. Another advantage is that getting corporate catering is very cost-effective, especially if you charge your employees for what they eat. Switching to outsourced breakfasts and lunches can help you save money and upgrade food while making sure everyone’s happy and sated. The last benefit is that using a caterer reduces clutter by eliminating the need for all (or most) cooking equipment in your office. --- From practical experience, we believe that ordering buffet-style catering is a no-brainer for most organizations. One notable exception is the distributed business that has people telecommute or stay in shared workspaces. If your organization fits this description, lunchboxes may be a better choice.
