What do lunch catering services include?

Excited to spend some time with your friends and family? Or were you assigned by the big boss to plan the corporate activity? Good, freshly baked, prepared food is a surefire way to keep your guests happy. There’s no need for you to risk making a mistake in the kitchen, or worse, not having anything to serve. Enjoy the convenience of having the best lunch catering near you when you put up a task here on Airtasker. Here are some activities where you may want to consider getting buffet or individual lunch box catering near you:

Holiday parties and get-togethers

Christmas, New Year, and other holidays usually mean family get-togethers. If that is not nerve-wracking enough, it can also pressure the host to serve the most delectable dishes in fancy table arrangements. If that’s not your forte, and you would instead enjoy getting dressed, why bother? There are Taskers fully capable of transforming your dining area into your private lunch hall, decked in stylish decor and the smell of a mouthwatering meal. By hiring a professional chef and catering crew handling kitchen matters, you don’t even have to chop a piece of garlic or wash a plate.

 

Take your time picking out your outfit, and sip some wine while professionals handle the rest. It won’t only keep your guests full. You’ll have a more enjoyable time, too!

Social gatherings

A beautiful morning wedding ceremony or exchange of vows must be celebrated with a feast. Some Taskers can make your fairy tale dream come true, whether you have an intimate meal or a lavish brunch that extends till the afternoon. You can even request organic meals or special dietary adjustments for the whole menu. It’s your day, after all!

 

Wedding planners and coordinators can also hire a caterer here on our platform to skip the fuss of getting quotations and menu samples from different suppliers in the area. Here on Airtasker, you get the offers, Tasker profiles, and the inclusions in one place.

Corporate events and functions

If you’re planning a full day’s worth of work activities, then you better get a good caterer for the meals. We all know work is much more fun and exciting if we get delicious meals in between. Taskers can help you prepare a lunch spread for a company party or even provide individual lunch box catering for the employees and guests. 

For events that span more than a day, such as conferences, training programs, or team-building activities, you may want to consider hiring a corporate caterer for meal preparation and planning. This way, you can stay within budget without boring everyone with the same flavors throughout. It’s a win-win!

Virtual parties

Lunch catering for online parties? Why not? Have a Tasker prepare and deliver meals to guests. This is a great way to feel connected to other guests, even if you’re distanced from each other. Sending a gourmet lunch box can make them feel cared for, even if putting up a task is so easy to do!
