As autumn sets in with gusto you might already be thinking about the approach of Christmas, a busy season for the catering industry, where special festive menus and catering for large Christmas or New Year party groups creates a demand for festive crackers, tableware and party accessories.
A survey by HospitalityGEM found that 59 per cent of work Christmas parties and 50 per cent of festive dinners with friends will be made 3 months in advance. The survey also found that cost, table reservation time, booking speed and pre-ordering options were all important factors when customers are choosing a Christmas venue.*
With such a detailed organisational plan, it is important for staff to feel well prepared in advance.
Fortunately we’ve got a one-stop solution for ordering your festive tableware supplies quickly; allowing more time for you to manage your hectic festive schedule. Check out the Bunzl Catering Supplies Crackers and Partyware Collection 2015, available online as a 36 page e- brochure and stuffed full of everything you need for the festive season, from crackers and napkins, to party kits and even real Christmas trees.
New for 2015, a range of seasonal print hot cups also feature in the brochure, designed to meet the growing trend for serving speciality drinks in suitably seasonal cups, without the need to commit to your own custom print. Choose from our fun and festive Christmas Holly Design with boughs of holly, gingerbread men and baubles, or our contemporary and celebratory Swirling Tree Design with Christmas trees and snowflakes in a mixed case of both red and green designs.
Simply click through the brochure, choose the ranges that will suit your budget and dining environment, and then contact your local branch to place an order. Christmas stock is limited and the party season will soon be upon us – so place your order now.
