How to Plan a Breakfast Catering Menu That Makes Everyone a Morning Person
Fuel Guests and Employees with Corporate Breakfast Catering
Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day, however, a whopping 31 million Americans skip breakfast every day. This is because of time constraints, the expenses involved, and a lack of appetite in the morning. So, how do you come up with an appealing breakfast catering menu?
1. Have a breakfast station
This is an excellent way of displaying your breakfast menu. You can have a pancake, omelet, bacon, waffle, and fruits station. A breakfast station comes in handy in any corporate catering event especially with upper and mid-level attendees.
2. Include healthy options
With the increased awareness in health and wellness, most people are looking for caterers and hotels that have a ‘healthy’ menu. This is quite challenging especially if yours is a small startup. One effective way of making your breakfast menu healthier is by eliminating anything fried. Consider including low-fat spreads, whole grain breads, vegetables and fruits, and granola options.
3. Make it memorable
Most people prefer to skip breakfast when they’re not impressed with typical breakfast menus. This is your chance to get creative! Add a twist to your breakfast menu to make it more interesting by offering things like freshly made granola bars, breakfast pizzas, a fusion recipe, and so on.
4. Anticipate special dietary needs
Anticipate and plan for dietary preferences like food allergies, religious beliefs, and dietary restrictions. Handheld Catering offers many gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options, so talk to us about these dietary restrictions for an easy-breezy breakfast menu that everyone can enjoy.
5. Consider plated breakfasts
Plated breakfasts are ideal for business settings or formal events. Fortunately, with this kind of breakfast, you can provide anything from traditional to one-of-a-kind breakfast menus. Plated breakfasts allow you to create a beautiful presentation and adhere to special dietary restrictions for specific guests.
6. Remember the drinks
Although coffee is a must-have for most guests, it is critical that you offer such drinks as natural fruit juice, herbal tea, decaf coffee, milk, yogurt, and fruit-infused water.
