2018 Catering Trends.

Using the most recent catering trends at your event is a must. Why? These days, people are even more in tune with food than ever before!

    1. The amount of millennials who browse package labels is increasing.
    2. A recent vote noted that 8 in 10 adults watch cooking shows on television on
    a regular basis.
    3. Millennials go out to eat more than members of baby boomers or generation X.

These trends have tallied up to one thing: the stakes have changed for catering companies. These companies need to stay up-to-date on the latest in the industry.

What’s Hot?
Destination-Specific Food
Chance are your clients travelled to get to your event. They are now in a new spot and may want to do some sightseeing on the side. While some prefer to see the city via bus, other’s use a fork and knife.

This is why destination specific cuisine is a huge trend. Give your clients an experience they cannot get anywhere else/

Local Wine & Beer
Once your event is over and the lights go off, your guests would want to go out for a few drinks. And similar to food, they most likely won’t be interested in the same old drink they can get back home.

Smart Menu = Smart People
The food you serve makes a difference to the amount your guests learn and recollect from your event. Food for thought – literally! Members should feel alert and ready to engage, and this starts with planning the menu.

Grab and Go
At events, your team is there for a reason: networking. A hungry stomach may be more of a nuisance than anything else. Give your guests an opportunity to grab a bite and go.

Food Experiences
On the other hand, event food is the event itself. Place the food in the limelight of your event with experiences that serve up your message. Guests of all demographics and generations are in love with learning how to cook what they are eating.
