One of the most frequent requests for a corporate caterer is for continental breakfasts. Continental breakfasts traditionally consist of a light food selection, coffee, rolls, butter and jam. Today the continental breakfast means so much more. Most catering companies would consider it a cold breakfast with plenty of beverage choices but really the sky is the limit when it comes to menu planning. The main key is to keep your choices to items that will not perish easily. Most continental breakfasts are set out early in the morning and are intended to sit for a large portion of it. This is why choosing items that do not have to be refrigerated, heated and if possible are individually wrapped, are more attractive to the people eating them.

Continental breakfasts are popular among corporations because they last a longtime, are cost effective and satisfy a broad spectrum of people. Popular with chain hotels, most people think of the continental breakfast as stale, insanely fattening muffins, cold cereal, whole fruit and orange juice. Savory Cuisines Catering says why not expand your options and kick things up a bit. Boring donuts and muffins are too commercial, if you really want to wow your guests there a bunch of new and exciting trends in continental breakfasts that you might want to try. Jazzed up just a bit, these kinds of caterings are now even being seen at morning or late night weddings, birthday parties and holiday celebrations.
