Customer Feedback

Customer Feedback

The Buffets for Business team love receiving feedback – especially when it is glowing! So, we thought we should share a few of the great customer messages we have recently receiving.

“ Many thanks! We’ve been really impressed with the food and service received so please pass our thanks on to all the team. 

 “I’d like to say that we were really pleased with our buffet lunch, especially the gluten free vegetarian meal (I really struggled to find anywhere that would easily cater for this). I look forward to using your services again in the future 😊.”

“The food was a big success with everyone and so much better than having sandwiches every day, though they were good too. This is the first time we’ve gone for the Street Food, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others based on our experience. We didn’t try the Indian option, but if it’s as good as the chilli you won’t go wrong.”

Thanks to all our wonderful customers who took the time to message us.

B4B introduce our Inspirational Food Menu

B4B introduce our Inspirational Food Menu

At Buffets4Business HQ we’re very excited to announce the addition of our new Inspirational menu to our range – perfect for when our customers want something a bit more high end for their lunch experience.

Our Managing Director, Jon Daniels, explains why it a great new option to help impress both your colleagues and your customers.

“Many of our clients who order catering regularly, tend to stick to the same sandwich platters, whether their guests are VIP customers, on the board or internal teams. Which is fine of course, and we understand that if something is ‘tried and tested’ why change? But actually, it might mean that there are some members of staff who are eating the same lunches 2 or 3 times a week! We’ve had great customer feedback from those who have shaken up a board meeting with some mid-week tapas or have served a key account afternoon tea!”

 “Our 6 inspirational menu options allow you to choose an impressive platter lunch, appropriate to the occasion and the guests you want to impress. We will provide loan crockery and serving utensils to create an ‘upgraded’ dining experience. We’ll also give you the option to have everything set up, served and then cleared away by a professional member of our team.”

A flavour of our Inspirational Menus:

Dynamism           Executive Menu Wraps, Flat breads, Pasta Salad, Cheese Board, Profiteroles, Fruit
Heartening Healthier Menu Salmon, Prawns, Teriyaki salad, Pasta Italiano, Moroccan cous cous, Fruit salad

B4B introduce our Street Food Menu.

B4B introduce our Street Food Menu.

The B4B team are very excited to announce our new Street Food menu to our range.

Our Managing Director, Jon Daniels explains why it was the natural addition to our business customers.

“There has been a huge surge in the popularity of street food recently. And at B4B, we thought that street food from a range of international cuisines would be the perfect ‘something different’ for our business lunches. Our customers can now choose from a range of delicious options – Indian, Mexican, Tapas, Italian, Jackets, that all come with a number of side dishes (with options for dairy, gluten free and vegan dietary requirements of course) and that are all delivered in hot boxes, with hot plates and all the necessary serving utensils.

This style of street food, and indeed eating, is very popular the world over. It’s become much more familiar in the UK though thanks to the increase in farmers markets and the increase of food stalls at festivals and pop-up venues. It certainly opened our minds to do something different. People are looking for something else at lunchtime, so mixing it up with a range of cuisines, local fresh ingredients and delicious recipes is very exciting for us. 

At B4B, we have always used fresh, local ingredients to make delicious and innovative corporate lunches for our customers across Hampshire, Berkshire, Sussex, Buckinghamshire, and Surrey. And now, with our new Street Food menu we can offer our customers a broader choice and a more exciting lunch experience.”

So check it out – ordering is exactly the same, you just log into your personalised account and choose ‘Set menus’. In Street Food, just choose your themed menu and add extras or side dishes accordingly and we’ll prepare the feast!’

Egg Recalls in Europe.

Egg Recalls in Europe.

Brakes Statement: Egg Recalls in Europe (Due to the Presence of Insecticide Fipronil)

We are aware of reports in the press that eggs have been removed from shop floors in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands as they were found to contain an insecticide (Fipronil) that is banned from use in human food production. About 700,000 eggs have been taken off the shelves in the UK, and some retailers have also recalled products containing egg as a precaution.

We are aware of the current concern around eggs. It is thought that the farms that the affected eggs came from are based in the Netherlands. Brakes Eggs

The Food Standards Authority (FSA) has confirmed that there are no food safety or health risks related to the insecticide Fipronil, but it isn’t authorised to be present in eggs.

All Brakes shell eggs are UK-sourced Lion Quality. The majority of our own brand egg products (like liquid whole egg, liquid egg yolk, scrambled egg mix and peeled hard-boiled eggs) are manufactured from UK-sourced Lion Quality eggs.

If using UK Lion Quality eggs isn’t an option (e.g. where eggs are used as an ingredient), we only source from our approved suppliers who are fully aware of their responsibilities to meet EU and UK food safety regulations, to ensure all products supplied to Brakes are safe and legal.

We’re keeping a close eye on the situation and we will continue to monitor our suppliers. You will be informed if we need to recall any products you are currently using

Please pass any media enquiries to Kevin Coles at Nexus PR on 07776 026012.

Cupcake Day Fundraising!

Cupcake Day Fundraising!

Since mid-May we have been fundraising for Cupcake Day. Cupcake Day (15th June) is set up to help raise vital funds to help defeat dementia. So far, we have raised over £100 for Alzheimer’s Society! We are continuing our fundraising till the end of June.

Not only have our generous clients supported us by buying our cupcakes one has set up their own Cupcake day fundraising event!
