How to Choose Between a Potluck or Corporate Catering this Holiday Season
A common tradition for corporate events is to host a potluck where each employee brings in a different type of food to participate. Many employers choose the potluck route for the holiday season as it brings colleagues together to enjoy food while keeping costs low. However, the money saved from hosting a potluck will likely cost you stress, time, and effort.
Fortunately, catering companies in Toronto, like Smokin’ Bones, offer various holiday menus, including vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, kosher, and gluten-free options. Choose Smokin’ Bones for your corporate catering in Toronto to ensure your staff gets a delicious, healthy, and filling meal.
Here’s how to choose between a potluck or corporate catering in Toronto this holiday season.
During your holiday party, you’ll want to provide a memorable meal that everyone will love. Although your coworkers may have a special recipe that tastes great, everyone’s dishes may not pair well together. Even if you organize a themed potluck, an assortment of foods, textures, and flavours will likely be served and not make for a good meal overall. Even if the individual items are tasty, everyone has their own way of cooking, and the meal will not have the same quality or organization as catering companies in Toronto. Instead of a standard potluck with the risk of cold or soggy food, Smokin’ Bones provides fresh, warm, and perfectly paired food that will have your staff reaching for more servings.
When deciding between a potluck or corporate catering, one of the most important details to consider is the safety of your employees. From handling, preparing, and serving the meal, many complications could arise from hosting a potluck. Quality and safety are critical, meaning proper handwashing, cutting board procedures, and sanitization are all necessary steps to ensure the food is prepared. Although, even if prepared accurately, keeping the food at a specific temperature that’s safe for eating can be challenging, especially for those who have long commutes to work.
Even worse, an employee could mistakenly neglect someone’s dietary or allergy needs by cross-contamination, often causing those with food allergies or dietary restrictions to avoid potluck options. At Smokin’ Bones, we guarantee that our food is prepared, cooked, and served per Food Safety Guidelines. Smokin’ Bones provides affordable, high-quality, and delicious holiday meals that can be catered to any dietary or allergy needs.
Unless you send out a detailed list of everyone’s food preferences, some of your employees won’t enjoy certain items. Deciding what to bring, cooking the food, and getting it to work are lengthy tasks many employees don’t necessarily want to do. Holiday potluck events also have the possibility of upsetting some of your employees. Often, potlucks have untouched food, making it visibly apparent to the coworker that made the meal that others don’t like their food, which can cause ruffles in the workplace. Corporate catering in Toronto allows your staff to be stress-free and satisfied with their meal during the busiest time of year.
