Nothing brings the team together better than delicious food and great conversation. Whether it’s small meetings, client presentations, team lunches or just Friday drinks at the office, Order-In have endless corporate menu options in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra to cater for all preferences and situations.
There are some basic staples that you need to consider when you’re looking at corporate catering for a small group. Answering these questions will greatly help narrow down the options for you and as an added bonus, give you the chance to learn more about your team. The first one is easy; time and type of event. If you’re getting the team together for a mid-morning tea, a late afternoon tea or after hours drinks, then your first port of call is finger food catering and beverages. For longer lunches, more formal meetings or events, then it’s best to start with our function and events catering options, which offers substantial meals and experience stations.
The next step is dietary requirements. Especially with a small team, it’s important to know what your audience can and can’t eat. Approximately 50% of Order-Ins weekly catering solutions are modified to include special dietary needs. It can be difficult to keep everyone happy, but you’ll find an abundance of gluten free, dairy free, nut free and vegetarian options throughout our website and caterer menus that will tick all the boxes. Should you have a particularly tricky set of exclusions to cater for, don’t hesitate to call us at 1300 851 900 and our friendly team will work with you to find the best solution.
A common question that gets asked is “how much do I need?”. Nobody wants to go hungry and wasting food is a travesty, so we’ve made it simple by giving you the suggested serves per person on all of our best-in-class office catering menus. As a general rule of thumb, people will eat 1.5 sandwiches at lunch, though a group of men might eat a little more. If you're not sure, have a look at these detailed quantity guidelines.
The style of food and how it’s displayed are often easily determined by the the type of event/meeting. Sometimes it’s best to impress, so If you’re entertaining an important client, celebrating a company milestone with a cocktail function, or anything else that you feel requires that extra special touch, the team at Order-In will platter your order on VIP ceramic platters for a perfect harmony of style and substance. On the other hand, when you’re looking for catering a small informal meeting like a team catch up or a working lunch, then our simple and tidy disposable boxes are the perfect solution.
