Now that the weather is getting nicer, you may want to consider hosting a company picnic for your employees. A company picnic is so much more than an excuse to have a day of fun in the sun—it’s also a great team-building activity since it gives employees who don’t normally get to interact a chance to socialize outside the office. When it comes to food, you have many options to choose from. Here are some ideas that we think will be a hit:
Buffet: A buffet allows picnic goers to choose from a variety of options and eat whenever they want. From seafood to vegetarian options and everything in between, all buffet options come complete with rolls, butter, salad and dressings.
BBQ: Nothing says picnic like hotdogs and hamburgers, corn on the cob and vegetable skewers. These are great options to enjoy outside.
Sandwiches: You can’t go wrong with sandwiches. Choose from the classics: smoked turkey, BLT, roast beef and club. Or choose from our wraps and signature sandwiches, like our Maison crab cake. Be sure to have some kid-friendly options if children will be in attendance, such as ham and swiss cheese.

Fully Customizable Menus
Commercial clients are often curious to know about their customization options. No matter how many people you have working in your Washington, D.C. office, it’s very rare that the entire staff has similar diets. There are always a few people who are vegetarian, vegan or suffering from various allergies and intolerances that will force you to make amendments to the standard office catering services we offer. Luckily, Maison Culinaire is a catering company that is prepared to cater to the needs of your employees.
If you are aware of certain allergies, intolerances or other dietary restrictions, all you need to do is let us know about them when you call (571) 203-0111 to inquire about our office catering services. Having catered thousands of events all over the Washington, D.C. area, we have a deep understanding that everyone has their own unique dietary needs. Since our goal is to make office catering as simple as possible, we don’t discriminate on these nutritional needs.
We can accommodate virtually any restrictions. So, if you want us to serve a gluten-free office lunch, we can do that. If you want to provide your employees with a plant-based lunch, we can create dishes that are delicious and nutritious. If there are nut allergies, we will take every precaution possible to make sure that there are no nuts in the food we provide and that there was no contamination in the preparation process. If you have someone with diabetes on staff, we can cook up dishes that are low in fat, sodium, carbs and calories so that their blood sugar stays balanced long after your office lunch has concluded.
