Benefits Of Different Office Catering Serving Styles

A challenge some Sydney office managers (like you!) might have when planning for an office lunch is choosing the best way to serve everyone. Platters? Individual lunches? Sit down? Grab and go?

We’re sharing a few ways we think are best when catering for your office:


  1. Catering Platters. By this we mean serving your group in a very traditional, working lunch or breakfast style of catering. The atmosphere is probably a little more professional in this case, and guests are offered catering from a fairly standard and easy to eat menu range on platters – think sandwiches, cake platters and hot finger foods. What’s great about this style of catering? The main objective is to not disrupt your meeting – the catering needs to arrive on time, be easy to leave on the boardroom table and for your guests to eat without making a mess. Eco-friendly disposable platters are the way to go here.
  2. Boxed lunches. This is a great way to serve your group when you’re having lunch or dinner in a less-than-conventional setting. Maybe you’re serving your group outside, like at a company picnic. Or maybe you’re hosting a workshop and your space is limited when it comes to where people can eat.  At Wicked, boxed lunches come in many options, from healthy to cuisine based (Vietnamese, Mexican, Mediterranean).. What’s great about this style of serving? When you offer lunch that is boxed up with everything your guests need right inside, they can really eat just about anywhere. Also excellent for portion control – none of your team will miss out – and special diets eg. if you are catering for Gluten Free guests
  3. Team Lunches. Buffet-style! You know, a big table set up with all the food set out and ready to go before your group even shows up. Each person gets to pick what he or she would like to eat, from the type of food to the amount of food. It’s also the best option when you want to offer your guests a wide sampling. You never have to worry about your Vegan friends finding something to eat when you’ve got lots to choose from. What’s great about this style of serving? The team gets to socialise as they fill their plates and they can choose exactly how much of each menu selection based on their own tastes.
