Every single year there are meetings and events that are held that require a banquet menu. This is a huge aspect of having a successful meeting or event. While it may seem silly to think about, when it comes to what people remember about an event or meeting, the food really does matter.
There are over 2.4 million weddings that take place over the course of one year in the United States. There are so many parts of the wedding that matter in terms of planning and preparing. However, most people do not realize how important the banquet menu is for the wedding. The same can truly be said for a catering menu in the meeting room of an event facility.
The average number of wedding guests is 165. Now, keep in mind that this is just the average. So that means that some weddings will potentially have more guests and some will have less. It will really depend on the type of family and also the size of the family. But regardless, it is important to keep in mind the number of guests in attendance when figuring out the banquet menu.
It is a good idea to book your wedding reception site as soon as possible once you’re engaged, which is usually at least a year to nine months before the wedding. Just about 40% of brides and grooms-to-be are looking for unusual venues that better reflect their personality.
The United States catering industry employs 261,189 people. A Dinova survey revealed that 78% of corporations include vegetarian options at their corporate events. When putting together a menu for a large event like a wedding, it is essential to take into account people’s food preferences. So if you have food allergies in attendance, you have to make sure your banquet menu avoids those kinds of foods.
In a Dinova survey, 73% of respondents said they have a company picnic each year. Of those with picnics, 43% reported that their company spends $50,000 or more on the event annually. More than $122 billion is spent annually in the U.S. meetings industry. Almost 86% of companies with employee recognition programs cite an increase in worker happiness.
Every single year people across the country prepare for their wedding or a business event. These business conferences more often than not work to provide food for those in attendance. Getting the right kind of banquet menu can go a long way in pleasing employees in attendance and also impressing them.
