image of a corporate lunchPutting on breakfast or lunch for staff might not be something you do every day, but on certain occasions it can give both your staff and your business a boost. So what are the options, from sandwiches to something chef-prepared, and how can you do it cost effectively? Breakfast menus When there’s work to be done, a catered breakfast might be just what it takes to get staff going early. Here are three common options, ranging from inexpensive to lavish.

Cost effectiveness

  • Self-service instead of hiring waiters

  • Supplying your own beer and wine
  • Package deals – discounts may apply for numerous functions
