  • Don’t Wait! Start Planning Your Holiday Events with Buca Today!

    early bird holiday catering

    Believe it or not, it is time to start planning your holiday events. From sit-down corporate holiday dinners to informal family gatherings, it’s never too early to start organizing all of the details. The size, complexity and type of celebration you are hosting will determine the amount of preparation necessary. For example, a family dinner for 10 people may only take a few hours to plan but a large scale company party will require several weeks. Give yourself ample time to put together the best holiday party this year, start your holiday planning today! Here are a few advantages to early holiday event planning:

    Get Started Early and Order Your Holiday Catering Today!

    Greater Turn Out Rate

    The sooner you send out your invitations or “Save the Date” cards, the higher the probability that your guests will not already have another scheduled event. You should then send the official invitation with RSVP closer to the event date. Be sure the guest/spouse/significant other is included on the invitation.

    Choice of the Best Venues

    Early party planners have the best choices when it comes to selecting their venues, catering, and entertainment companies. The longer you wait to confirm your details, the less likely you will be able to put together the event experience you originally envisioned. No one wants to be stuck hosting their holiday party in the corporate office because all other possible venues were booked. Booking and planning before the holiday rush can also be a better financial choice, since prices often increase along with demand.

    Choice of the Best Food

    Corporate holiday events mean you need to show your team that you recognize and appreciate their hard work. Family holiday events are especially memorable as sometimes it is the only time of the year all family members are together. Both type of events require plentiful portions of food that everyone loves. So skip the stuffy steakhouses and the restaurant around the corner where everyone goes for lunch each week and choose a truly special menu. Buca di Beppo knows how to make every event feel special. From corporate party catering to warm family gatherings in our welcoming restaurants, Buca is the perfect choice for all of your holiday events.

    Before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season sets in, call us to discuss all of your reservation and catering options. Are you wanting to celebrate at your home? We can’t wait to tell you about all of our amazing catering packages. Are you wanting to celebrate at a restaurant where you know the service will never disappoint? You know that our staff is here to serve. Wherever you choose to host your event, choose a team you can trust. At Buca di Beppo, we consistently provide delicious Italian dishes and truly care about your event. Don’t leave something as important as your holiday menu to chance! Contact us today!

  • 7 Signs You Have a Great Boss: National Boss’s Day October 17

    16-bdb-1094-boss-day_blog_546x250

    National Boss’s Day is the perfect time to show your boss how much you appreciate their kindness and fairness throughout the year. You may overlook all that they do when you are focusing on your own job, so take a minute to consider all that they do for the company (and you!) every day. Here are 7 signs you have a great boss:

     Order catering for your office party to celebrate your boss.

    1. Your boss sets clear expectations and doesn’t micromanage

    A great boss identify priorities and discusses expected outcomes and results. The boss then entrusts the employee to execute the details and get the work done how they see fit, rather than telling the employee how to do it.

    1. Your boss gives immediate feedback and recognizes efforts

    A great boss gives immediate feedback as to whether a worker has made a mistake or has succeeded, not months later at their performance assessment. Great bosses establish a coach-player relationship with their employees to offer advice, reinforce high quality performance, and make employees feel appreciated.

    1. Your boss appreciates each person’s skills and unique talents

    A great boss observes and speaks with employees in order to take advantage of what each employee does best. Employees then feel confident about their work, skills, and talents and the boss is able to reap the rewards of employee satisfaction.

    1. Your boss is open, truthful, and not afraid of empowerment

    A great boss is direct, but sensitive in their communication.They are not insecure about empowering their employees and they encourage employees to make positive changes within the company.

    1. Your boss is prepared to coach

    A great boss educates, encourages, and leads their team by example, never assuming employees know what to do and how to do it. They know when it’s time to jump in from off the sidelines and coach their workers on how to do a particular job.

    1. Your boss knows their employees

    A great boss is friendly, available and makes time for employees who want to speak to them. A great boss will also be open to learning about employees’ lives outside of the workplace. This is often helpful when an employee needs to make arrangements for time off, flex-time or a family emergency. Employees are more committed to their work when they have caring and interested bosses!

    1. Your boss works on being a better boss

    Many bosses have a natural flair for leadership, but much of what it takes to be a great boss is the constant learning and developing of new and better management capabilities. Great bosses often attend classes and seminars and read books on how they can perform better in their role.

    With all that your boss does for you and your co-workers every day, take some time to say “thank you” with Buca di Beppo. Bring your boss by one of our restaurants for a delicious lunch or dinner; gather your co-workers and organize a catered meal at the office, or surprise your boss with a Buca gift card. Show your boss that you appreciate all they do this Boss’s Day with Buca di Beppo!

    Book Your Catering Packages Today!

    Most offices have an annual holiday celebration to show appreciation for its employees and allow time for colleagues to mix and mingle outside of work hours. They often take place in the workplace just after office hours. Presentations are frequently given and noteworthy employees are awarded for their performance.

    Order Catering From Buca for Your Holiday Office Party, Corporate Parties and More!

    Set the date

    You first need to decide when the party will take place, since everything else will be planned around this date. Keep in mind that some dates will be very busy during the holiday season and some days less so. Choosing a midweek day will often give you more options for entertainment, catering, venues, etc.

    Decide the guest list and venue

    You don’t necessarily need a final number just yet but you should have a ballpark number in mind. Are you inviting all employees? Certain departments? Are spouses and families invited? After you have received back your RSVPs you will be able to provide a final head count to your caterer and any other relevant vendors. You also need to finalize the location. The office party will probably be at the office, but where exactly?

    Send “Save the Date” cards

    As soon as you know the date and exact location of the party, it’s time to send “Save the Date” cards to your office mates. Notifying everyone as soon as possible will ensure the best turn out during the busy time of the year.

    Call Buca!
