Enjoying a hearty, hot meal at work, regardless of the time of day, is important to a lot of workers. In fact, it is estimated that over 15 million Americans work night shifts or have jobs that require them to rotate to nights. At Tasty Catering, we believe that every shift of employees should be able to indulge in the same high-quality meals. This is why we offer around-the-clock catering for Chicago businesses.
Whether you work in a warehouse or a hospital, everyone needs to eat. And it would be nice if you could nourish your body with something more substantial than a sandwich and healthier than fast food. Tasty Catering offers convenient drop-offs featuring delicious prepared dishes delivered in chafers or disposable pans. Treat your employees for their hard year of work with our new Holiday menu, which features appetizers, entrees, build-your-own feasts, decadent desserts and more.
Now, every shift can enjoy the same meal. Or they can mix and match based on what they have a taste for. Check out some seasonal eats to enjoy throughout the day:
A productive work day should begin with a fulfilling meal. Your early morning crew is essential to the day’s flow. They should feel ready and confident to take on the day’s setup and regular tasks. Treat them to a holiday buffet featuring a hot turkey meal.
Remember that your morning shift shouldn’t have to heat up leftovers. The same fresh meal should be available to all shifts, which is a factor that distinguishes Tasty.
The midday shift is generally the busiest shift of the day. Working with customers, getting the bulk of the items stocked or arranged on the store floor and filling out paperwork and so on—it’s enough to work up an appetite. You can mix and match small bites with heavier, heartier dishes. Pick from appetizers like:
- Balsamic Tomato Jam Crostini—Honey balsamic tomato jam, black pepper mousse and onion crisps on savory crostini
- Reuben Flatini—Corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese on lightly toasted flatbread (served with Thousand Island dipping sauce)
For wholesome entrees, go for items like:
- Roasted Pork Loin with apple garnish and caraway-ginger snap gravy
- Baked North Atlantic Haddock Fillet with parsley citrus sauce
And we can’t forget to mention our Traditional Turkey Dinner. Complete with roasted natural turkey, cornbread stuffing, classic mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, tossed garden salad with assorted dressing packets, mixed bread baskets and cranberry sauce, this holiday favorite will light up anyone about to come off a long shift.
Don’t forget about dessert! We offer holiday sweet tables that feature holiday butter cookies, mini cheesecake English toffee and fudge brownies.
Create Your Own Festive Feast
Your late shift workers should be treated to the same options offered during earlier shifts. Dishes should be hot and fresh, with steam still rising from the containers. One of our favorite seasonal options is stuffed shells. Create your own holiday spread! Pair it with green bean casserole or a baked sweet potato mash.
Warm everyone up with a cup of hot chocolate. Our hot chocolate station includes hot chocolate, whipped cream, sprinkles, chocolate curls, candy canes, crushed Oreos, mini marshmallows and 8 oz. plastic coffee mugs and stir sticks.
We also offer full-service catering, which means we accommodate rental items and friendly, diligent staff if needed. Maybe you’re planning a formal business event, work party or annual sales meeting. Tasty Catering can make a lasting impression with elegant plated dinners, casual company buffets and cocktail hours. If you work in the Chicago area, contact us for any of your 24-hour catering needs!
