When looking for corporate catering, one has many different options. Many local cafes and restaurants offer catering services. However, it is best to use a company that specializes in corporate catering.
Companies that specialize in corporate catering are designed to fit the needs of the corporation. They know the importance of offering meals that are healthy and filling, while keeping the focus of the lunch on the matters at hand. Dishes are often chosen to be easily eaten, without making a mess.
Other companies offer an impressive array of box lunches and party platters, all of which are served cold. This has many advantages. This allows the work schedule to be flexible, as cold foods can be served within a larger window. It also allows one’s attention to be on other things, and not having to sit and wait for the exact moment the food arrives. Many large events involve set up that requires food to sit for a period of time.
Another advantage these companies have is their ability to choose their location. Many do not have store-fronts and are thus able to select a location with lower overhead cost, and more conveniently located to corporate areas. This keeps the cost of the items down, compared to local cafes and restaurants which pay for prime real estate.
There are also many services that are offered through companies which specialize in corporate catering company which may not be found at other catering options. A good example of this are the services offered at Ingallina’s Box Lunch, located in the downtown Los Angeles area. They are able to take orders up until 9:30 the day of delivery, while most companies require the order to be put in the day before. They also accept cancellations up until 9:00am the day of delivery for most orders. They are also able to offer free delivery to a large portion of the Los Angeles area, including parts of Burbank and Pasadena, with low minimum orders.
Ingallina’s Box Lunch is also able to set companies up with recurring orders, frequent order incentives, along with other time and money saving services, including custom gift baskets and other corporate gifts.
There is much thought put into every aspect of corporate catering when done by specialized companies. How long before it will be eaten, how to ensure bread doesn’t get soggy and how to best accommodate the needs of the corporate event managers. These are just some of the considerations that go into creating meals which will leave the customer happy, fulfilled and coming back time after time.
