5 Factors to Consider When Choosing an Office Lunch Caterer

One of the best ways to keep office morale high is by rewarding your staff with a catered luncheon. People love being treated with delicious food, especially when it's paid for by the bosses.


Whether you're rewarding your employees for a lucrative month or are throwing a company event, there are a few things you need to consider before hiring an office lunch caterer. We're here to guide you in the process.

Keep reading for a quick guide on choosing the best catering services for your office lunch.


Food Options


First, find out what types of food the lunch catering service offers. If you have a large group of people, it might be a good idea to select a buffet-style service. That way, instead of taking individual orders for dozens of people, you can let them choose at the table what foods they want.


However, if you do have a smaller group of people attending your office lunch, it might not be a bad idea to take a survey around the office to see what types of food people enjoy. Lastly, ask about unique options for people with common diet restrictions.


Customer Reviews


Next, when ordering food for events, reading online reviews is one of the best ways to vet your options. It would be best if you found out what other people have experienced when hiring local catering companies.


How was the quality of the food? Did the caterers get the meal orders correct? Were they personal and professional among your staff?


Pricing


To find the best office lunch caterer, go online to see their pricing. You may need to contact the caterer to get a custom quote based on how many people you are providing food for and what type of food you want at your event. Comparing catering costs is essential, but you should never decide on price alone.


Office Lunch Catering Experience


Depending on how big your office luncheon will be, how formal it is, and what type of impression you're trying to make, you need to consider the caterer's experience. If you only have a handful of employees for whom you're providing lunch, it won't be such a big deal.


However, for significant events and formal occasions, find an office lunch caterer who has plenty of experience in the field. They'll know how to handle large groups of people. They'll also learn how to behave and act appropriately at your event.

Availability and Capacity


Finally, you need to think about logistics when hiring lunch catering services. Will the caterer and their staff be available on the day you need them? Can they fit you into their schedule?


Additionally, make sure the caterer can serve the number of people attending the office lunch. Small caterers who have limited staffing may struggle to produce enough food for significant events. How much food do you need?
