Many offices are full of employees again, and events that have been recently canceled are back on the calendar. Because it’s been so long since they’ve been able to host a conference or throw an office party, many companies are taking extra care when they choose who will provide their corporate catering in Massachusetts. At Main Course Market, we think that every event deserves great food made with only the freshest ingredients, locally sourced.
Here are some important things to think about when booking corporate catering in Massachusetts for your next event.
Go for Variety
The criticism most people have for the food at corporate events is that it’s boring. There’s usually a bland chicken dish and an even blander vegetarian option. But it doesn’t have to be that way! The menu for a corporate event can be filled with a wide array of options, all of them delicious. When you work with Main Course Market for your event, our Catering Director will work with you to build a menu that includes appetizers, salads, entrees, sides, and desserts.
Don’t Ignore Dietary Restrictions
The trickiest part of putting together a menu for any event is managing everyone’s dietary needs. Some allergens are relatively easy to avoid. For example, if you have more than one attendee who is allergic to nuts, the simplest option is to have a nut-free menu. However, avoiding gluten or dairy is more challenging. You probably won’t hear complaints about a nut-free menu, but there might be some grumbling if you try to go completely gluten-free. You’ll have to land on a compromise. Communicate all the attendees’ dietary restrictions to your caterer well in advance and find out what they do to prevent cross-contamination.
Keep Your Schedule in Mind
Schedules aren’t the fun part of planning an event, but they are essential to ensuring that it runs smoothly. You don’t want to be waiting around to eat, but you also don’t want the food to be sitting for too long. Communicate your schedule clearly to your caterer so that they can accurately time the preparation and set up of your meals.
