For those of us that have endured a year of social distancing and working from home, there’s nothing more steeped in anticipation than the office reopening. There is a lot to look forward to – even if that means sacrificing wearing your pajamas past noon.
It’s pretty safe to assume that we’re all going back to a “new normal”. No matter where the path takes us, we can surely agree that there’s no better cause for celebration than the coming end of this tragic pandemic.
At Kiss the Cook we’ve been brainstorming some awesome (and safe) party ideas for your office grand reopening. If enjoying amazing food is at the top of your list of party essentials, then look no further!
TOP 5 OFFICE GRAND REOPENING PARTY IDEAS
BOXED FINGER FOODS
Bye-bye buffets, boxed meals are what’s on trend and Kiss the Cook Catering has an extensive selection available for you to choose from. However, don’t be “boxed in” by the idea that you can only order breakfast, lunch or dinner. We also have created a feature finger foods package that’s perfect for an office grand reopening. Each person receives an individual platter of scrumptious small bites including selections of sliders, skewers and other savory bites like our famous truffle mac n’ cheese balls.
WELCOME BACK BBQ
We’re renowned for cooking-up some of the best barbecue in Toronto and with the warm weather just around the corner, you won’t regret booking a welcome back BBQ. It’s easy to please a crowd with our gourmet burgers, grilled chicken and fresh salads. Leave the coordination to our professional event planners who are up to date with current health and safety protocols. We have crafted our services to ensure everyone is kept safe while enjoying sizzling summer specialties.
ROAMING LUNCH CART
You may be wondering how to provide food without a lengthy line-up. Introducing Kiss the Cook’s Roaming Lunch Cart! Our professional server(s) will be outfitted with required PPE and navigate a stocked cart of lunchtime treats to your staff’s individual workstations. Each package can be preordered and labelled by employee name. You might also like to consider a daily roaming lunch cart. We can work within your lunch budget to customize a meal program that includes diverse, restaurant quality dishes and accommodate any special dietary requests. Themed lunch carts are a way to make mealtime exciting such as meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday, Worldly Wednesday featuring global favorites and many more!
NOT SO PIZZA PARTY
You may have had your fix of pizza during the pandemic but that’s not the only dish that can be served in the iconic box. Charcuterie, cheese and crackers are great example of a perfect back to work party platter. Add some wine or a fun cocktail and office happy hour is sure to be a success. Although these kinds of platters have traditionally been served buffet style, the individual boxing makes them safe to enjoy and also makes it easy to take home any leftovers.
Companies have proven their dedication to keeping employees safe and healthy, so why not continue that mandate by showing your staff that commitment to their well-being continues to be your managements top priority. Consider setting up a cold pressed juice station with immune boosting bevies. Select a variety of individually packaged Buddha bowls or entrée sized salads with protein and keep everyone’s energy levels high. We will create a custom menu which allows staff to choose meals that reflect their health goals. Options may include keto, vegan, gluten-free or paleo.
