We especially love doing ‘Thank you’ catered events. Sometimes the evening is set up to honor a specific honored guest for their service to a company; other times it’s a company thanking all their employees with a large catered event.
Any way you slice it, these events feel sincere, gracious and heartfelt behind the scenes – and at the event. We can really feel the generosity and spirit. It just makes our job all the more wonderful to be a part of that gratitude.
- Recently we hosted a fantastic holiday thank you luncheon for a large hospital, to thank it’s amazing doctors, nurses, operating techs and cleaning staff for everything they have been doing above and beyond the usual for the past 18 months.
The hospital offered the luncheon from 9 AM through 4 PM, so everyone could take advantage of the meal no matter when their shift ended. The food was intentionally healthy – with lots of choices, from meat-free to gluten-free, lots of fresh veggie dishes as well as healthy meats; grab and go, or sit down and chat with cohorts.
Staff loved everything from the large helpings of food to the “Thank you” banners and boxes of take-home cookies for later. Very thoughtful!
- We catered a large surprise Team Breakfast for a company who wanted to thank their sales and marketing team after returning from a really tough week on the road.
Breakfast items were delicious, warm, comforting and could be “pick up and take with you” or “sit down and enjoy.” There was also a hot chocolate and tea table all day with plates heaped full of an assortment of Jacquie’s Gourmet cookies and scones.
- Another company we frequently enjoy catering for is one that provides appetizers and a beer and wine cart on the last afternoon of every corporate quarter. It’s a much-looked-forward way to thank employees for their part in the company’s success.
Thank employees with food.
It’s a thoughtful, very welcome way to express gratitude for a job well done. There are numerous ways to pull an event like those we’ve mentioned together. In other words, there’s a thank you breakfast, luncheon or appetizer cart for every budget and opportunity.
… which brings us to our sincere appreciation for YOU! No better time than the end of the year to thank to all of you, our terrific customers and businesses from the bottom of our hearts.
- The staff and management of Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering
