Ultimate Company PicnicRewarding a hard-working team with a company party is a tradition for many business owners - but with certain restrictions on indoor parties and gatherings, it’s the perfect time to plan an outdoor summer picnic to celebrate their achievements! Corporate catering in Toronto with Smokin’ Bones will ensure the food is taken care of, but what else goes into running a successful team picnic?

1. Choose The Right Time and Place

With complicated schedules, delivery dates, project management, and key team member’s holidays to consider, picking the perfect day for your company team picnic can be a challenge. If only staff are invited, a weekday picnic might be best, but if family and kids are invited too, an evening or weekend staff party may be easier.

2. Make it Look Great!

Decorations - even for an outdoor picnic - are key to setting your atmosphere! While company branding at a picnic is nice, it can sometimes be sterile. Think about having a themed picnic and go wild with beach accessories, a circus tent, or wild west props to help your staff relax and enjoy themselves. 

3. Have Fun

To avoid having your staff standing around and talking only with their team members, plan activities or bonding games to get people to break out of their silos and have fun! If kids are invited, make sure activities are age-appropriate and that there’s something to engage everyone. You can even hire an entertainer, like a live band, comedian, or caricature artist to provide something for your guests to interact with. 

4. Have GREAT Food

As one of the best BBQ catering companies in Toronto, we know that exceptional food is THE most important part of any company team picnic. Good food equals happy and satisfied employees, and for a summer staff party, nothing beats a barbeque. Hiring professional caterers allows all of your staff to relax and enjoy themselves and leaves no one stuck tending to the hot BBQ all day - leave the hard work to us and we’ll make sure everyone leaves happy and satisfied.

Milton, another great event!

Paul Godfrey - Toronto Blue Jays

You made our barbeque for 1500 guests seem like a walk in the park. Not only was the food outstanding but your ability to process that number of guests so quickly and painlessly was something to see. My compliments to your wonderful, always smiling staff. What a difference that makes.

Dawne Brodlieb - Pop Events

Milt, I've told you how important these events are to us and you have never let us down. I cannot express how wonderful it is to just call and know that everything will be taken care of. Don't ever leave us.

Milton, thank you for your efforts in making our 90th Anniversary Celebration such a huge success. As you know, our most senior executives flew in from Paris for the event and they were thoroughly impressed with everything you did from the presentation, selection, taste and quality of the food to your professional serving and bar staff. All the best.
