Bring Extra Flavor to Your Event

It's been said that nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking, if they weren’t both a pleasure and a necessity.

The perception of value and overall cost are top considerations for most groups when it comes to menu selection. As an unfortunate tradeoff, food at many corporate events has earned a reputation for being bland or boring. But pleasurable dining need not be put on the backburner and, at Q Center, our experienced culinary team works hard to ensure that it is not!

Customization and scalability can be balanced with price and value to provide a dining experience that leaves attendees engaged, energized, and satisfied. Before you start planning the menu for your next group event, here are some creative ideas to consider:

Set the mood
Try something different with a themed buffet. Whether it’s a rustic barbeque or a classic French bistro, authentic menus and specialty decor create a welcoming atmosphere and make each buffet a unique delight for the senses.

Bring old-fashioned hospitality to the table
Family-style dinners let your group interact and network around a large table. Courses are passed from person to person, inspiring lively conversation and bringing back memories of shared family meals.

Keep them moving
Help your group to mix and mingle with a strolling buffet. Networking is made easy as guests migrate from one table to another. Or, if your group is pressed for time, individually packed grab-and-go boxed lunches make a satisfying take-along option for maximum productivity.

We hope these options have inspired your epicurean imagination. At Q Center, we love the challenge of working with you to build an incredible menu at a price you can afford.
