Planning a business lunch event isn’t as easy as ordering a whole bunch of food and hoping everyone enjoys it. There are a variety of factors you’ll need to take into consideration to make sure the event goes successfully.
For example, you’ll need to consider the type of event you’ll be hosting. Are you planning on a simple “grab and go” style of luncheon, or are you hoping for something a bit more formal? While most lunches are served buffet style, there are some people who prefer plated style business luncheons. Consider also the number of people you’re serving and where the event is taking place—both of these will play a big role in the catering decisions you’ll make.
Next, you’ll need to consider the style of lunch. Here are just a few categories of business lunches in Williamsport, PA for you to consider for your event. Get in touch with Tony’s Delicatessen & Fresh Meats for more information about your options!
This is a very simple crowd-pleasing sort of lunch. There’ll be plenty of finger foods that are easy to grab and go, and you’ll be able to please everyone with any dietary restrictions, including vegetarian, kosher and gluten-free attendees. Most deli buffets will include a mixed green salad, a fruit salad, a potato salad, chips, various types of breads and sandwich meats and dessert trays (usually brownies and cookies).
It may not be the most exciting option, but it’s probably the most reliable, and nobody is ever disappointed in the deli buffet. It’s also a highly scalable option that’s great for large events.
If you’re looking to inject a little more excitement into your business luncheon, you can try a themed buffet option. An Italian themed buffet might feature various pastas and sauces, pizzas, chicken parmesan or other traditional Italian dishes. A Southwest buffet might include a taco or fajita bar, with Mexican rice and refried beans. An Asian themed buffet could include stir fries, spring rolls, rice and noodle dishes and other similar items. You could also create a build-your-own burger bar, with various toppings (and veggie burger options) and fries available on the side.
From the attendee’s perspective, there’s nothing easier to grab and go with than a box lunch. It’s fast and easy and idea for working lunches, where meetings happen while people are eating. Sandwiches and wraps are frequently placed into these boxes, which will usually come in several different varieties. Usually people will be able to choose from turkey, ham, roast beef or vegetarian sandwiches, with the sides being the same: a piece of fruit, some chips, a cookie, condiment packages, plastic utensils and paper napkins.
