The essential function of catering at a corporate event is to make an impression that fits and enhances the brand of the host. For any brand, a catered event must contribute to the brand’s esteem through both the quality of the dishes and the quality of the service, and in many cases, the quality of the ingredient sources, too.
Corporate events are often planned with only days or weeks to prepare, so it is important to cover all critical requirements efficiently in addition to as early in advance as possible. Here are some of the major considerations and our approach:
Corporate events typically start planning with a very high degree of certainty about these basic parameters, and knowing them from the beginning will get us quite far in the process. Sometimes there is flexibility on the venue, in which case we are happy to recommend, and sometimes certain requirements of the event may affect venue options from a catering point of view. Let’s cover these details in the first e-mail or call.
We know your time is extremely valuable and we’ll treat it that way. In ten minutes or less, we can cover a lot of important preliminaries so that decisions you will need to make can be made efficiently. But if you prefer to start with an e-mail, just click the contact button below. We’ll probably respond within the hour!
We’re as committed as you are to making a top-notch impression. As your caterer, we consider everyone in attendance at your reception to not only be an honored guest who deserves the best, but also a potential or repeat customer who will likely share their experience of your event with more than a few friends of their own. So it is all the more important for us to thoroughly understand the essentials about your expectations, and that includes what you expect to spend on catering. We’ll want to know your figure from the very beginning. All the details flow from that… plus magic.
Variety is more than just the spice of life. It’s a necessity. Without a doubt, you’re going to have a variety of employees and clients at your party, and that’s the spice-of-life part. But they will also have a variety of needs and preferences, and at least a few of those needs and preferences may involve health and medical considerations. We’ll want to work with you very carefully to make sure important choices are not just delightfully available to those who need them, but also to those who’d be delighted simply to have them. We also understand very well the joys and challenges of introducing new or different culinary concepts. After all, MoCA built its business around Asian fusion. We’re proud to have grown our base of clientele from many guests who tried something at our restaurants for the first time. The food you serve is part of how you express your brand and its outlook on life. We look forward to learning how we can help you do that.
A great way to learn the quality of our kitchen work is to have lunch or dinner at any MoCA restaurant. As part of your planning process, we can also arrange a preview lunch or dinner as a course that matches your plan. This is essentially your event in miniature in which you invite members of your team who are part of the decision making process. We’ll need to price this part of the process as such, so we do encourage you to make the most of it as a business meeting. Based on this lunch or dinner, you’ll be able to confidently make adjustments and important decisions about the menu and how your event will be catered.
