Effects of Tech Office Catering

Posted on

The Bay Area is an international hub of technology startups, and as a result, many large companies form and grow here. As companies expand, they tend to provide meals to their employees to keep productivity – and employee morale – high. Local businesses, however, are seeing the impact of these in-house office lunches on their sales, as patrons stay at their desks.

While many local caterers have more of an opportunity to provide services to offices (often through third party companies, for better or worse) cafes, restaurants, and local lunch spots are seeing a vast decline in weekday lunch business. Not much can be done about this trend, but keep up with the demand in other ways – such as brick and mortar restaurants offering catering services as well. For those who work in offices without catering, or with an option of eating in or out, you can keep your local businesses in mind by helping them out with your patronage every now and again. Many of your city’s lunch spots have been around for a long time, and it would be a shame to see them close on account of the changing times.

We believe food plays a vital role in not only physical, but emotional health. Our social lives strengthen by building relationships over food, leading to a greater level of connectedness with the world around us. If you’re interested in having your next San Francisco Bay Area (94110, 94024) private or corporate event catered by a company working from this philosophy, call us today on (650) 961-3300. We can’t wait for your call!

Food Startups and the Little Guys

Posted on

Gone are the days where people connected directly with the caterer as the sole means of gathering business. Over the past few years many food startups have begun to corral a pool of catering services and help companies decide what kinds of food they serve their staff on a daily basis, which in and of itself is a solution to a problem. Yet, bigger picture, these online alternatives are severely affecting their offline counterparts.

With online accessibility ruling how people find vendors, it’s easy to forget the “little guys” and our dwindling margins when going through a third party system. One way you can help small businesses stay afloat is to cut the middle man and contact us directly when you need catering services. We’re ready to hear your vision for your event and match your budget with the highest quality foods and services from Catering Central. When you come directly to your caterer, more of your money makes it back to our business and we can keep bringing our best to the Northern California catering scene.

At Catering Central, we highly value food as a means of connection with others, and aim to give all of our clients a positive and satisfying experience with our services. We are passionate about supporting small businesses and keeping food fresh, seasonal, and local. If you’re looking for corporate catering in the San Francisco Bay (94111), private party catering in Sunnyvale (94086), or general catering in Mountain View (94040) – call us today on (650) 961-3300!
