To Have A Great Meeting, You Need Great Catering
Here’s a quick Guide
Here at The Rostie Group we know that you deserve great food for your meeting.
It’s easy to dismiss catering as just something you get to keep people from running out for lunch, but it’s far more than that. Keeping your attendees happy and well fed is going to lead directly into the success of your meeting.
Are you planning a full day session?
Is the workshop happening in the middle of the summer or the frigid winter?
Will you be feeding 10 people or 100 people?
Are you working on a tight budget?
Start with the coffee and tea. It’s as easy as that. Always make sure you are serving some sort of hot beverage at any session you’re hosting. There’s nothing that can satisfy someone throughout the day like a fresh cup of coffee or tea. This is a must have.
Breakfast is essential. When having an offsite meeting, you don’t want to have late comers and people running in and out because they didn’t have breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day after all. With small groups, continental breakfasts are always a safe bet. Selections such as pastries, muffins, yogurts and fruit will always provide a light, yet filling option for your guests. With larger groups, you may want to consider the hot breakfast buffet. Buffets are great for feeding mass quantities of people and the chances of leftovers is minimal.
For every person that is looking for something light, there’s someone who had to rush out the door and could use a hearty meal to start their day off right.
When it comes to lunch, a sandwich platter is a great place to start, as this versatile selection can accommodate the majority (if not all) of your guests. And sandwiches are simple enough to diversify for special dietary requirements. They can even be made to suffice any religious restrictions, which in a multicultural environment is very important.
But, with a sandwich platter, you also have to consider the proper side dish to accompany this. If it’s a winter meeting, you may want to consider soup, whereas a salad option would be better fit for the summer. If you’re doing a multi-day session, you may want to provide different sides for each day so the meals don’t become repetitive.
If you’re looking for more than sandwiches, a hot lunch can surely make an impression on your guests. Options such as: chicken, fish, beef or pasta will ensure that no one goes home hungry. This is an easy way of replicating a traditional lunch meeting at a restaurant, but served within your meeting space. (And you can even take the leftovers home for a quick dinner).
These options will surely help avoid the “cafeteria” feeling your attendees experience and can be a make or break factor as to whether they attend again in the future.
As for the afternoon snack, we all love a good desert to satisfy our mid-day sweet tooth craving. This certainly isn’t a must-have, but depending on your budget, group size and make up of attendees, is a great idea that will leave a lasting impression. Try and do something unique for this as it ties the entire day’s menu together and makes for a strong finish to the session.
At The Rostie Group, we’ve put a tremendous effort into providing catering options for any type of session that you’re hosting. With our unique, customizable menu, which includes both hot and cold options for all meals, we’re confident that this will satisfy all your guests and lead to a great meeting.
Seasonal Catering Options
Time flies when you’re having fun. And what changes with time? The seasons!
For that very reason, our catering menu here at The Rostie Group changes with the seasons, to be the best fit for you.
In the Fall and Winter we offer hearty soups that will delight your attendees and take away the chill. We also offer cookies and dessert bars that continue to keep the high energy levels of your attendees.
Of course our fruit options also change with the season, offering fresh Watermelon in the summer months, and apples and pears in the winter.
Our seasonal menu will not only match all of your tastes, but also be the perfect balance with the weather outside.
For the Spring and Summer, we offer light and refreshing salads, full of vibrant ingredients, ice cream bars and other frozen treats that will deliver that afternoon bit of sugar needed to keep your attendees focused and ready to participate.
Why Get Your Catering Directly With The Rostie Group?
We have been doing Catering for a long time now. For years we have catered our meetings, and have always made sure to keep up and learn about the newest health advice for balanced diets. From something as simple as introducing bananas and hard fruits to our menu years before anyone else had even considered anything beyond orange juice, to making certain that we account for vegan, ketogenic, diabetic, and any other form of specialized diets are included and accounted for. The Rostie Group catering menu doesn’t only represent freshness and flavor, but also the years of experience that we have making sure that you and your attendees always have the best experience.
When you rent one of our meeting rooms, you’ll get the choice to order from our entire menu. We have chosen our menu items carefully, only picking what we feel will be the very best for your meeting. Catering items that will not make your attendees feel too sleepy or tired for the afternoon session. Foods that are easy on the stomach, are flavorful, and can be easily adapted to any dietary restrictions.
All of our food is served when you want it. If your meeting may run longer hours, we will be happy to only serve your food when you feel it is most appropriate. This way, you won’t have food sitting out in the open, losing its freshness, nor will you have attendees losing their focus due to the delicious smells coming from this food.
If you have an extra early session, and want to start off right, we can have breakfast prepared for you bright and early, as well as a pot of coffee to get your alert and ready for the day.
Here at The Rostie Group, we don’t believe in restricting your options. If you have a favorite place to order catering from, you’re welcome to do so. We will still arrange it and prepare it for you, and have it ready for your meeting when you want. But if you order from us, you can be certain that you’ll get the freshest, most delicious catering you’ll ever have. And it will be served when you want it.
Not only that, but we’ll also work with our budget. Whether you have 60 attendees for an all-day session that must eat at a specific time, or you only with to have catering for your meeting coordinators, we will make sure that you get the best catering options at your budget level. We want you to have the best experience with our catering menu.
Coffee On The Rostie Group Catering Menu
The world runs on coffee. It’s the favorite way for millions of people worldwide to wake up and start their day. For many people, the day doesn’t even start until they have their morning coffee, and they manage to wake up. Simply put, coffee is very important. And here at The Rostie Group, we know just how important coffee is, and we are always looking to provide the best cup of coffee we can.
We are obsessed with our coffee, and we want you to be obsessed with it too. At the Rostie Group, we are proud to brew coffee from local roaster Reunion Island Coffee. Located in downtown Toronto, Reunion Island Coffee is Canada’s largest coffee roaster powered 100% by green energy, and is committed to sustainability- for example, they are certified by B Lab as an industry leader in social and environmental performance.
Their coffee beans are sourced responsibly, and are certified Fair Trade, Organic, Rainforest Alliance, or are Direct Trade beans.
We have tried and tested and tasted all of the different blends that Reunion Island Coffee produces, and we have to say that they are all delicious. But there could only be one that was the very best.
We have run multiple taste tests here at The Rostie Group where we had our clients taste all of our favourite blends and choose an ultimate winner.
Even still, we continue to work hard and try every new blend so that we know for certain that our coffee is the absolute best, and that you and your meeting attendees will be delighted with every sip.
