Atlanta Corporate Catering: Good vs. Great

In order to be successful as a business, the owners and employees alike need to put forth plenty of hard work and train as often as possible to learn new skills that apply to the industry that they are in. In the world of Atlanta corporate catering, this is no different. That is one of the reasons why Reception Hall Intl. has been successful over the years: because we are constantly adjusting and reviewing our cuisine menu, while always looking for new ways to become more efficient and effective in what we do.

But you may be wondering, what exactly makes a caterer not only good, but great? Keep on reading to find out.

Food Safety – Of course one of the first things that great corporate caterers in Atlanta must have in their repertoire is outstanding food. But what is outstanding food without really great food safety? All too often caterers have very poor food safety standards behind the scenes, but great companies make sure to follow all food safety guidelines all of the time.

Creativity and Flexibility – It is inevitable that caterers get special requests in regards to the cuisine that they are serving. Sometimes there are restrictions on certain foods because of religious preferences or allergy concerns. A great catering company will be able to adjust their menu in creative and imaginative ways to deal with whatever concerns or restrictions that there may be for a corporate event.

Food – No matter how splendidly decorated a venue is, or how riveting or informational a corporate event is to guests, a catering company is not going to earn repeat business if the food is awful. Having great food seems like a no brainer, but it is absolutely essential to succeed as a great catering company.

If you are looking for a truly great corporate catering company that stands out from the rest of the pack, and embodies the qualities that you have read above, make sure you contact Reception Hall Intl. today to see how we can help you create an unforgettable event.

Catering the Big Meeting- Atlanta Catering

 

You have a marathon meeting coming up, or the boss is coming in from out of town, or there is an important client coming in to talk about their account. These and a thousand other corporate events are all great opportunities to stand out and make a good impression. One way to do just that is to ensure that tasty treats are provided to your meeting attendees through the use of a corporate caterer. Whether your meeting or event is at your office or offsite, having the event catered can make it more pleasant, more productive, and potentially more beneficial for your business and career.

 

 
First, let’s talk about impressions. If you have a corporate retreat or team building event, or the head of your department is flying in from the home office for a meeting with you, your boss, and a few other people, having something brought in that is a step above the break room coffee and stale donuts you usually have for staff meetings will signal to her that you recognize the importance of this meeting and her position within the company. It also sends a message that you recognize the importance of details. The same is true if you are having a meeting with an important client or potential client.

 

Regardless of your business, small touches like this are a hallmark of good service, and are one way to signal to your clients that they are important to you, and to help you and your company stand out in their mind.

 

When you are having a meeting with attendees from other parts of the country or parts of the world, catering is a great way to acknowledge cultural differences and make your guests feel at home. The time-honored tradition of breaking bread also helps dispel awkwardness and makes every gathering that much more pleasant. Consider a continental breakfast for a morning meeting, with muffins, juice, coffee, tea, and other gourmet pastries. Offer coffee, tea, and an assortment of not-so-sweet cakes or pastries for an afternoon meeting, particularly if you have European attendees at your meeting, as many countries, Germany in particular, often have a “coffee and cake” break in the mid-afternoon. If you are having guests from Great Britain or Ireland, consider adding a few light sandwiches to the afternoon catered spread, in a nod to the tea time tradition. It goes without saying that meetings that are held at or that will last through meal times should include a full catered meal. Go for a boxed lunch if you want to work through the meal, or take a lunch or dinner break and offer a buffet style hot meal. Remember to include options for the vegetarians in your group, and at least one option that covers any other dietary requirements (Kosher, Halal, etc.).

 

 

Not only is a catered corporate meeting or event more pleasant than the alternative, it can put you as the one who suggests it on the boss’s radar in a good way. Catered meetings are also more productive meetings. Hungry employees are distracted employees. If everyone is slipping out for a lunch break here, a coffee break there, or a snack machine run who knows when, then no one is on the same page. If, on the other hand, food is easily accessible and taken care of by a third party, you and your team can focus on the work at hand and get more done.

Benefits of Catering at Your Next Corporate Event

 

When planning your next corporate event or lunch-in, no matter how lavish, simplicity should always be your watchword. That seems like an oxymoron, but bear with us. Remember that your guests are ultimately there to mix and mingle with colleagues and spend time with you, while being within their work environment. The decor, food, theme, etc. – those are all just window dressing. A truly successful event is one that everyone can enjoy, even you- the host. One classic way to achieve this illusive feat is to delegate responsibility for feeding the hungry horde to a professional catering service.

 

Depending on the size of your company party and your budget, catering services can range from dropping off food that you set out for a buffet style spread to a full-service sit down meal complete with uniformed waitstaff, tablescapes and the whole nine yards. Whatever the price point and however extravagant the company event, breaking bread with one’s host is a tradition that dates back thousands of years. From ancient times when this ritual was a tacit “I won’t kill you and you won’t kill me” agreement to today, where the food is often what’s remembered longest about a good celebration, groups of people getting their snack on together have a long and illustrious history. Letting a professional caterer handle the nuts and bolts of this important party aspect means you can focus on the fun stuff – mingling with your guests and enjoying your event – instead of last minute beer runs or making sure that the shrimp cocktail is kept on ice.

 

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, when planning a corporate event, always decide on a budget and pinky swear to stick to it. This is even more important once you decide to start hiring services like professional caterers. Choose a caterer that works with the foods you enjoy and the theme you want for your company party and that is within your budget. If you need to cut corners to make it work, look at cutting things like the number of dishes on the menu or the service style. Buffet, for example, is cheaper than a plated dinner service, and also makes much more sense for a backyard barbecue.

 

 

 

 

Remember that the point of hiring your corporate caterer is so that you can have great food at your company party without driving yourself insane – and still be able to enjoy your colleagues. Decide on your menu and your theme up front, have a tasting ahead of time to approve the menu, and on the day of the party, stay out of the way!

 

 

You want to be on hand and available should anything go wrong that needs your attention, but you hired the service so you wouldn’t have to be in the kitchen – So. Don’t. Be. In. The. Kitchen. Go mingle! Have a drink! Enjoy your party, and trust your caterer to provide the fabulous food you approved for the price you agreed upon while you relax with your guests.
