Booking a work buffet? It’s time to think outside the pizza box…
Everyone likes dirty take-out food every now and again, especially after punishing their liver, yet the market for fresh catering is our priority. With fresh, thin-based, gluten-free and generously topped pizzas, fresh salads and risottos on hand for corporate lunches, why do some businesses spend hundreds of pounds on pizzas which, in the words of one of our customers last week, “have the nutritional value of a sock”, and apparently require you to eat on the toilet in preparation for the rapid impact on your digestive system? It feels like a clash with the common provision of corporate gym memberships, lunchtime running groups and yoga classes.
This is either a matter of emperor’s new clothes, habit, sadism or that we simply need to speak up louder about our fresh catering services.
In addition to the steady stream of mid-week business lunches, our recent takeaway menu promotion has sparked a couple of enquiries about office-based corporate lunch provision. This has sparked an awareness of the working lunch trade – and how much of it is going to chain suppliers. Catering requests serve as a huge support to our local business – which is often booming at the weekend, but sees a quieter footfall in the weekdays. The weekday trade is very much appreciated. In addition to that, we cook with passion and buzz off helping to create an enjoyable business lunch and spare the hassle by bringing the food to your office.
Dieting? We have a range of takeaway salads and risottos. Vegan? No problem, we have vegan cheese and soya milk at the ready. Bizarre pregnancy cravings? We’ll happily add coal/mud/soap to a bespoke dish for you. And if you wish to dine in, we have recently catered for tables of over 20, and are happy to take a pre-order to have ready for your arrival.
So this post serves to remind the community that we not only offer vegan and wheat-free dishes but also a range of risottos, salads and pasta dishes. Leaving dos, birthdays, retirements, divorce parties, deceased-pet memorial services – we’ll happily cater for the lot.
As well as being keen to supply a good service for local businesses, we would like to help them impress non-local clients with local produce – we’ve been delighted to have business customers from London and the Lake District recently, and would be delighted to see this increase.
