If you’re a manager or business owner, you probably already know the value of bringing your team together and showing your appreciation. The positives include creating a culture where employees thrive, which in turn boosts productivity and loyalty. But it goes further, too. Since many employees today work long hours, thanks to devices, time zone differences, and workloads, making your workplace feel like a family can remind employees why you’re ‘all in’ together.
And while internal celebrations are wonderful, external events are also important. Recruitment efforts, board meetings, presentations, ribbon-cutting ceremonies, product launches, and more are all occasions enhanced by catering menus worth sharing.
But the demands of internal and external events can tax even the most energetic office manager or corporate events professional. To offer inspiration, we’re sharing our top four favorite catering menus—those we personally think are especially worth sharing. BBQ catering
Ok, we’re biased, we know—but nothing beats our barbecue. From fabulous baby back ribs to juicy hot dogs and bratwursts, our BBQ menus (link: BBQ Catering) are worth sharing, whatever your reason. All catering packages feature our signature sides, including homestyle potato salad, coleslaw, and sliced watermelon. And our finger-lickin’ Grampa’s Grille sauce is so delicious, we’re proud to bottle and sell it on its own.
How about a little spice? You’ll find it with our themed buffets. Our taco bar is a fun way for guests to build their own tacos. With spiced beef, taco shells, and all the toppings, there’s something to please everyone. If you’re looking for a twist, try our fajita bar. Choose from marinated beef or chicken, cooked to perfection, with all the toppings. Both options come with Spanish rice and refried beans.
Craving Greek food? We don’t blame you. With Grecian chicken, lamb gyros, grilled vegetables, pita bread, rice pilaf or roasted potatoes, no one is going to go hungry.
Elevate your event with extra-special menu options. Favorites like Chicken Marsala, Chicken Vesuvio, Chicken Piccato, Chicken Cacciatore, and more play starring roles, with garden salad, choice of dressings, and rolls as sides. We also offer a choice of sides, including upscale choices like Buttered Carrots with Dill, Italian-Style Green Beans, and Parmesan Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
Breakfast done right
How about starting the day off right? Whether you’re hosting an open house, retreat, or professional development, breakfast can be an ideal way to welcome everyone.
Choose from our Continental Breakfast Buffet for a simple option, or go with our Hot Breakfast Buffet, complete with pastries, fresh sliced fruit, omelet casserole, Glazed Honey-Baked Ham, pork sausage links, and more. If you’re looking for food on the lighter side, we also offer options including a Fresh Fruit and Yogurt Bar or—for those chillier mornings in fall and winter—an Oatmeal Bar.
Featuring catering menus worth sharing at your next event will ensure it is memorable—for all the right reasons. Let us help you choose the menu that’s right for you.
