Catering in a Pandemic
Chefs Meredith and Laura are founders and executive chefs at Squash Blossom Catering. Both women have over 25 years of cooking experience and over 10 years of experience in the events catering world. Chefs Laura and Meredith have catered to the masses at events like RUBB for the Houston Rodeo and holiday parties for McDermott, Microsoft and others. Their largest event? 900
How have things changed during the Covid-19 pandemic? Drastically to say the least. Meredith and Laura began to see a huge change in the corporate catering world in mid March of 2020. They then began to see the trend that the corporate world was going to wait until 2021 to return to the in person workplace.
So how does one pivot in a pandemic? Laura and Meredith have found that offering individually packaged lunches have been the "go to" for businesses as well as small events. Things like charcuterie boxes and snack boxes have been a popular choice. Passed appetizers and staffed buffets have been a must in order to provide a safe atmosphere for all events.
Now that 2021 has arrived, Laura and Meredith are hopeful that events will begin to get back to "normal". "We are seeing more brides booking for the 2021 and 2022 year and this gives us hope that the corporate catering world will grow as well."
"We have rebranded to evoke a sense of refinement to our catering and feel this will go noticed with our corporate clients as well as our future brides." Come check as out and feel free to contact us for your next event. Happy Eating!
