Food Station Catering for your Corporate Catered Events in Sydney.
Let’s face it. Corporate Catering in Sydney can be boring. The constant sandwiches, cold catering deliveries, drop offs and even sometimes the salad boxes can get old. If your company entertains a lot, the variety of these items can be exhausted. Don’t get me wrong, there is always a place for a good sandwich or quiche in the Sydney Corporate Catering scene, but the team at Boardwalk Catering have decided to spice things up.
That is where our Sydney Food Station Catering for corporate events comes in. We have a large range of different types and styles of delicious food, presented on stations for guests to help themselves. Now we aren’t talking about a buffet here, a selection of mixed food laid out for guests to help themselves (think salads, fresh warm bread rolls and a selection of meats where guests walk past and select from the items). More specifically we are talking about cuisine specific food, presented thoughtfully or theatrically, where guests can chat to our friendly staff and chefs. We also offer grazing stations as part of our latest food station catering menus.
Food station catering has a number of benefits. – A range of food can be offered which allows the host to cater for many different diatery requirements and preferences (generally there is something for everyone) – Guests are often given the chance to interact with the station which provides a theatrical element to the event. (for example, our build your own slider station allows guests to construct their own mini burgers with a selection of different ingredients – it means that they can make what they like and want to eat) – It allows people who are interested to ask questions. We have been to events where canapes are served and the waitstaff do not properly let everyone know what is in the canape or food being served. Sometimes people miss out as they are not sure what is in the food or are not sure that they will like it. Generally, there is a chef behind our food stations whose job is to answer questions and assist guests with serving. They are approachable and friendly and allow people to ask what is on the station, where it comes from, how its grown and how delicious it is. – Food stations allow people to select what items and how much of each item they would like. Some guests love to load their plates up with a range of food and flavours, others like to make multiple trips up to the station to select different items over the course of the event. What-ever your style you can be sure that your corporate catering will be the best it can be with the relaxed style and nature of a food station. No one will go home hungry as they can eat as little or as much as they would like.
Food Station Catering has become very popular for Sydney Corporate Events with a number of our regular clients opting for a complete event with food stations, or adding to their canape catering with an additional food station (such as a cheese and antipasto station). This is a testament to the relaxed nature and theatre of the food station. Food stations are a fantastic way to entertain clients, reward employees or even just for staff drinks.
