A business lunch is just another form of a meeting where the guests gather to discuss business. The food is just a pretext to the real reason for the gathering of those people and thus it shouldn’t draw the guests’ attention from work.
The client’s input are very important at the event like this for they are the initiators of the lunch and they have their agenda. Listening to them and fulfilling their requests the basis of a successful business lunch catering
The client is the star of the lunch
The client should be the person who decides on the type of the menu that you will serve. We always ask our clients to decide on what type they want, whether that is a classic four meal course, a Chinese type of menu, where everything is laid on the table, Japanese minimalistic approach, or something entirely else. We also ask them about their guests, their allergies and preferences and everything else that will help us to create a menu for everyone.
Some clients prefer our input in decisions on what type of menu we should serve, which is also a great thing. This gives us the freedom to introduce various aspects to the menu, and up until now, there weren’t any complains about the food we served.
The food we serve at business lunches
Some people prefer large amounts of food for their lunch, while others eat very little during this meal. A business lunch is just a pretext for business and therefore it should be light and minimalistic. The focus of the day should not be the food but the conversation and the work.
Creating elaborate dishes that require attention is counterproductive, and therefore we avoid it. The guests should be able to eat food quickly and without any effort and that will allow them to focus on the conversation. Serving alcohol is out of the question as well. The minimalistic approach to catering is the best approach to business lunches. Three or four small courses are enough to satisfy the hunger. Too much food will take the attention of those people away, and thus we don’t serve large meals or overcomplicated courses.
