Corporate Catering—5 Lunch Ideas for Your Corporate Event

As we’ve mentioned in a past blog, hiring a great catering company is a sure way to make your corporate event a success. Just as bad food is capable of ruining an event, good food can elevate it. If you’re planning a conference or gathering in Denver and you are looking for the perfect lunch to serve your guests, we’ve got the solution for you—Pour La France! Catering.

As Denver’s go-to full-service caterers, we are confident that we have the delicious and affordable catering to make your event a success. Read on to learn about five possible lunch combinations.

Breakfast Pastries

Brunch

Breakfast is not only one of the most important meals of the day, but when done right it is also one of the best meals. If your corporate event is taking place in the late morning or early afternoon, a great option might be to treat your guests to a scrumptious brunch menu. At Pour La France! Catering our brunch menu has a number of great choices, like Stuffed Croissants. These freshly baked, buttery treats offer your guests both sweet (chocolate and strawberries and cream) and savory (ham and swiss, spinach and feta) options. And they’re served with fresh, seasonal fruit.

Of course, there is the option of a Build Your Own – Hearty Breakfast as well. Check out our full brunch and breakfast catering menu here!

Box Lunches

If you are pressed for time or limited on space, box lunches can be the perfect, quick, convenient lunch. Though some box lunches will sacrifice quality for convenience and portability, at Pour La France! Catering we refuse to make this trade-off. Our box lunches include the finest ingredients available, and they can be customized to meet your needs. Customize your box lunch here!

Chicken Empanadas

Snacks

If you want your event to be all about socializing and networking, perhaps a full, sit-down buffet-style lunch isn’t the most suitable. If this is the case, you may find that several light, bite-sized snacks are more conducive to socializing—and, of course, staving off the hunger of your guests. A collection of Chips and Queso and Pear and Brie Quesadillas coupled with Mini Empanadas and Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites might be the perfect fit. View our entire collection of snacks here and check out our hors d’oeuvres here.  

Rocky Mountain Prime Rib Buffet

Gourmet Lunch

If you want to really treat your guests to a lunch that is sure to make a lasting impression on them, we have some options for you. Our hot buffet catering menu includes a number of well-crafted, gourmet dishes. Whether you want to honor your guests with some Italian—perhaps Chicken Marsala and Lasagna Italiano—or French—maybe Chicken Fricassee, a delectable French dish that is something between a saute and a stew—we can make it happen. Or you could customize a lunch catering menu that represents a number of cuisines from all over the world. Browse through our whole menu here.

Brisket Sandwich

BBQ

There’s a reason why Forbes found that 75% of U.S. adults own a grill or smoker—American’s love BBQ. Your corporate event doesn’t have to fall on or around Memorial Day or Labor Day for you to treat your guests to exquisite barbeque. Going with BBQ catering is a sure way to wow and satisfy the hunger of all guests. If you’re looking for some top-choice smoked meats to serve at your Denver event look no further than Pour La France! Catering. We allow you to customize your very own menu to include all your barbeque favorites—ribs, brisket, burgers, pulled pork, and all the classic sides. Customize your BBQ menu here and make your corporate event a smokin’ success.

Catering Menu Spotlight – Fall Flavors

Look around, the leaves are a fiery mix of orange, red, and brown, and we’ve already been hit with our first snow. There’s no doubt about it, Denver—fall is officially upon us. If you’re hosting a social or corporate event during this wonderful time of the year, why not serve your guest some fall-inspired recipes? At Pour La France! Catering we are offering our clients a special fall flavor catering menu.

Read on to learn about some of our favorite fall dishes.

Pumpkin Spice French Toast

Pumpkin Spice French Toast

Imagine attending a morning conference, walking in from a brisk fall morning and finding out that the event coordinator is not only serving hot, freshly brewed coffee but also a heaping tray of Pumpkin Spice French Toast. Sound like a perfect fall morning? We think so, too—it’s why we are showcasing this seasonal treat. This season treat includes slices of French baguettes dipped in pumpkin spice egg batter, dusted with powdered sugar, and finished with a dollop of pumpkin butter.

Sweet Potato, Black Bean, Quinoa Wrap

If you have an upcoming conference, office party, or some other social event, chances are there’ll be a few vegetarians in attendance. When planning your catered lunch, it’s important to accommodate to their dietary needs. However, keep in mind that you can address this need while also satisfying the hunger of even the staunchest carnivores. This is what we seek to do with our newest, fall flavor wrap. We take roasted sweet potatoes, quinoa, black beans, green onions, cilantro, shredded broccoli, kohlrabi, kale, brussels sprouts, golden beets, carrots, and red cabbage tossed in lime vinaigrette and wrap it in a garlic herb tortilla. It’s not only a perfect fall dish, but when added to a box lunch, you can impress your guests and show them what out-of-the-box box lunch catering is all about.

Pear, Roquefort & Pecan Spinach Salad

This is a quintessential fall salad with ingredients that will engage all your fall cravings—pecans, pears, bleu cheese, etc. We can also add your choice of protein—chicken, salmon, steak, prosciutto, or avocado. It would work great when coupled with a main entree like this Applewood Smoked Ham Buffet, which comes with cornbread stuffing and green bean amandine. Contact your go-to catering company today to arrange for us to bring this fall food spread to your next Denver event.

Savory Butternut Squash Bisque

Fall food is nearly synonymous with hearty soups. If you have an upcoming event, be sure to add a rich and tasty soup to your catering menu. This elegant autumnal soup may be the perfect option. This bisque combines savory butternut squash with balanced notes of curry and ginger. And to accentuate the fall-ness of the bisque, we pair it with our pear-cranberry relish.

Pumpkin Trifle

There are few items that scream fall more than pumpkins. And the wonderful thing about these autumn staples is that they are incredibly versatile. When added to a cake, for example, you not only have a season-appropriate treat, but you also get a delicious dessert. Our Pumpkin Trifle is just that. Topped with pumpkin mousse and maple-soaked ladyfingers and finished with cinnamon cream, it is sure to elevate your fall event.

Looking for a delectable fall treat that doesn’t include pumpkin? We’ve got you covered on that front, too. How about Caramel Apple Bars, consisting of tart granny smith apples covered in granola shortbread and custard and topped with a caramel drizzle?
