Choosing the Best Construction Site Catering Company
Hot food carvery at the London Olympics
Any building project depends on working efficiently and productively, making the most of the resources. Often, building projects’ face the biggest challenge of keeping their team together and many rely on construction site catering for the many benefits it offers. The core of construction catering is to provide hot, quick meals within the location for workers. Most times, construction companies employ multi-ethnic team members; it’s important for construction catering services to be sensitive to these minor, yet, widely important factors. Companies can also request for vegetarian, vegan, or halal meals.
Construction catering services that Exptress Catering offers are a form of location-based/off-site catering. Our team of culinary and service professionals would cater to a venue, space, or area you are based in. They would use resources like mobile cooking stations, portable electricity and gas, cooking utensils, refrigerator trucks to transport cooked food into locations requested.
This type of catering is used for crew catering, emergency catering, film locations, and other instances where the venue requires having ready-made meals around the clock. Although one could argue that off-site catering may not equal to freshness, and last-minute changes in meals cannot be attended to, it’s gained a lot of popularity over the last few years. A saturation of caterers in the market has also made it easier to bargain for excellent menu prices.
This may initially be viewed as an additional cost to the company to absorb, however, in the long run, you can ensure that team members are well-fed, and most of all are able to eliminate time wastage by going out for meal periods with long restaurant queues and long distances travelled in remote locations. These wasted man hours can impact the organization in the long run and can outweigh the cost of supplying food for team members.
Construction catering has a tremendous effect on staff morale and team building; since team members gather together for meal periods, it’s believed to help team building. A free hot meal can also be viewed as an additional incentive for the team member not to leave half-way through the building project. As it’s a physically strenuous job, construction workers would look forward to a nutritious meal; some workers may not be able to afford a decent meal and would boost personal morale that will contribute positively towards labor productivity. Construction service catering has many benefits for the organization.
Also, there are other factors to consider when choosing for the right construction site company. The first factor to consider is the size of the construction company, number of team members, the meal periods, the location it is based at and also the duration.
