The Benefits of Off-Premise Catering for Corporate Events

You’re in charge of organising a high-stakes corporate event where every detail matters, and the pressure is suffocating. You could settle for the typical on-site catering option, one might think. But let us share a little secret with you. Off-premise catering, friends, is the passport to a world of gastronomic adventure that will leave your guests craving for more.

We’re talking about a symphony of flavours, warm and carefully orchestrated by the best of the best – ready to dazzle taste buds and make your corporate event status: legendary.

In this article, we’ll first understand the difference between on-premise and off-premise catering for corporate events in Sydney and why you should seriously consider opting for the latter option.

Let’s get started!

What is on-premise catering?

On-premise catering (also known as on-site catering), which entails catering done within a venue’s kitchen and food preparation rooms, is often a more popular choice because of its affordability and event coordination. This usually means that the food for your corporate event is produced and served on-site.

On-premise catering is a good choice for events with more “elaborate” meals. Examples include special occasions, like an engagement party, with many courses and a dessert choice that asks for more fresh foods instead of one that’s made and then delivered to the venue (such as in off-premise catering).

What Is Off-Premise Catering?

Off-premise catering is often what event planners think of when they throw a corporate event and bring food in from somewhere else. If you hire a corporate catering company to bring prepared food to your site, the corporate caterer cooks and prepares the food in their own kitchen before plating, covering, and transporting it to your location.

There are several things to consider when working with an off-premise catering company. Generally speaking, the price point and the quality of the menu might vary greatly. When researching your corporate catering company, it’s critical to ask many questions and even seek word-of-mouth referrals from others to find out if their food options are right for you and your corporate event. (We’ve compiled a list of pertinent questions in this article to know what to ask your caterer before booking)

Why pick off-premise catering for your Sydney corporate event?

1. Flexible Menu Options

You’re usually limited to the food options available in restaurants, conference centers, and the kitchens of other on-site event venues. Off-site catering services often provide far more freedom, allowing you to customise the corporate menu to your tastes and theme because they use their own kitchens and bring the food to you.

2. Your Choice of Venue

Having the food brought to you broadens your venue options as you’re not confined to locations with a kitchen and serving staff. If you want to have your corporate event in a Classic Throttle Shop or an Iluka venue in Sydney Harbour, off-site catering allows you to hold your event anywhere you choose without the need to sacrifice the food.

3. Cost-effectiveness

Off-site catering is often less expensive than booking a restaurant or event space. The corporate catering company doesn’t have to pay for the space, building maintenance, or other fees, which typically results in cutting costs. Off-site food may be the most cost-effective alternative in many circumstances, even when combined with the cost of renting your own location.
