If your corporate event is in the morning, chances are your guests are going to be hungry for some breakfast.
Here are some essential breakfast menu items to start your corporate event on the right foot.
(Coffee goes without saying. That’s all day, every day.)

You can order some pre-made, or even have a station.
Just make sure you have enough maple syrup to last the whole morning!
Chocolate, vanilla with sprinkles, glazed.
Sometimes, you just need to start your day off with a donut.
