Why Have lunch Catered?

Catered lunches are a popular choice for a variety of events and situations, from corporate meetings and conferences to social gatherings and parties. Providing a catered lunch can simplify the logistics of feeding a group, while also offering an array of choices to cater to various dietary needs and preferences.

Benefits of Catered Lunches:

  1. Convenience: No need to prepare food or handle the logistics of ordering from multiple places. The catering company typically handles everything from preparation to delivery.

  2. Variety: Caterers usually offer a wide range of menu options to cater to different tastes and dietary requirements.

  3. Professional Presentation: Food is often presented in a manner that is visually appealing, enhancing the overall experience.

  4. Economical for Large Groups: When hosting a large group, catering can often be more economical than ordering individual meals.

  5. Dietary Accommodations: Many caterers are accustomed to providing dishes that are gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, or that meet other dietary restrictions.

Things to Consider When Ordering a Catered Lunch:

  1. Headcount: Knowing the exact number of attendees will ensure there's enough food for everyone without excessive waste.

  2. Dietary Restrictions: Always ask attendees about any allergies or dietary preferences ahead of time.

  3. Venue: Ensure the venue has the necessary facilities, like tables, chairs, and possibly a space to set up a buffet or serving station.

  4. Budget: Determine your budget ahead of time, and communicate this to your caterer. This will help them tailor a menu that fits within your price range.

  5. Menu Selection: Aim for a mix of protein options (meat, poultry, fish, vegetarian/vegan) and a variety of sides, including salads and possibly a soup.

  6. Style: Decide if you want a buffet-style meal, boxed lunches, or a more formal sit-down service.

  7. Duration: Consider how long the lunch break will be. If it's short, simpler options or boxed lunches might be best to expedite the process.

  8. Feedback: After the event, it's beneficial to gather feedback on the catering to make informed decisions for future events.

Popular Catered Lunch Ideas:

  1. Sandwich or Wrap Platter: A variety of meat-filled and vegetarian options with an assortment of bread and wraps.

  2. Salad Bar: Various greens, toppings, and dressings to allow attendees to customize their salads.

  3. Pasta Station: A mix of pasta types, sauces, and proteins for a filling option.

  4. Asian-inspired: Sushi rolls, dim sum, or a stir-fry station.

  5. Mediterranean Spread: Hummus, tabbouleh, falafel, and pita bread.

  6. Taco or Burrito Bar: Guests can customize with various fillings and toppings.

Remember, the key to a successful catered lunch is to anticipate the needs and preferences of your guests, while also considering the logistics of the event.
