The point of a meeting is to get things done in the office and discuss ideas, campaigns, initiatives, etc. However, it is nice to provide a little incentive/treat for the people attending. After all, meeting attendees are taking time away from their busy day to be present at said meeting. The idea of being away from their pressing work can be less than ideal for your employees. A way to get people more excited about the meeting is by offering refreshments. Follow OFFSITE’s office meeting food ideas for suggestions and ideas.
Veggies, Dip, and Cheese
Or as the fancy people call it, crudité. Vegetables, dip, and cheese is a healthy snack option that is compatible with many diets and food restrictions – low carb, gluten-free, keto, etc. Another benefit of providing crudité at your meeting is that you can buy it the morning of or the night before and keep it in the fridge, meaning you don’t need to go out in the middle of the day to get it. This snack also appeals to many different appetites, as you can offer a variety of veggies, dips, and cheese for all different tastes and preferences.
Flavored popcorn is a fun, unique, and easily transportable snack. There are many different kinds to appease both salty and sweet lovers (sometimes all in one flavor!) Companies such as The Popcorn Factory allow you to buy various size tins of their different flavors, as well as offering sampler packs. For a fun snack presentation, you can buy little paper movie theater popcorn bags and scoopers to create a self-serve, create-your-own station.
Since you’re buying food anyway, you can get specialty items catered from prominent restaurants. Examples include a Chick-Fil-A nugget tray, Taco Bell Party Packs of various tacos, a bunch of goodies such as salad and soup from Panera Bread, and a build-your-own burrito station from Chipotle. Some of these places even offer a delivery option, making it even easier for this delicious food to be a part of your meeting!
