14 Jan You Don’t Get a Second Bite to Make a Good First Impression
In this competitive corporate atmosphere, you need every advantage possible to maintain an edge. And let’s face it, first impressions count! In fact, they count a lot! If you don’t believe us, check out some of the following facts!
- Within 50 milliseconds of seeing someone’s face, you unconsciously make decisions that will influence your interactions.
- You can influence a first impression by wearing glasses, which imply intelligence, or facial piercings, which suggest rebelliousness
- Older faces are more telling than young ones. After decades of frowning, for example, a senior’s muscles adopt an angrier baseline expression.
No Jogging Pants Allowed
While many aspects that create a good first impression are out of our control, there are definitely things we can all do that will help! For example, you probably wouldn’t meet a potential client wearing your jogging pants and old coffee-stained T-Shirt (at least we hope you wouldn’t do that), as this flies in the face of trying to project an image of professionalism, expertise, and most of all–trust!
Love at First Bite
While most people in the corporate world understand the basics of the sartorial importance of the first impression, many still overlook the importance of the “first bite” and its effects on projecting and maintaining good first impression. In fact, having the right caterer and creating the perfect culinary experience, can turn a good impression into a great one!
Quality = Trust
Store-bought muffins, and pastries, or boring uninspired “wraps” and dry pre-packaged sandwiches simply don’t cut it these days and don’t exactly convey adverbs such as “quality” or “trust.” This is where we come in!
Peace of Mind
We love making you look good, and while we may not know too much about high-end suits or which belt to wear with which shoes (we assume brown belt, brown shoes), we do know catering. What we know for sure is that the food you serve conveys a lot about you and your company. When you hire us, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that we’ve got you covered, and your clients will leave with the very best impression possible!
The Art of the Culinary First Impression
We know that you want to project quality, and that’s exactly what we convey through our corporate menu. We use only the best, organic, locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients and produce. Always made fresh, and never prepackaged, your clients will be going back for seconds!
It’s in the Details
We know that a key way to make a positive impression on clients is the small, yet significant, details that separate you from the rest of the pack, and we love to help convey this attention to detail with every bite!
When we make our gourmet sandwiches, for instance, we brine our turkey breasts and slow-roast our beef, but we also make our own bread in-house—something your clients will definitely take note of. We also use Maple House Farms free-range eggs, Gelderman Farms bacon, and Farm House Natural Cheese’s Cheddar.
A Lasting Impression
The truth is that people may forget what you said, or what you did, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel, and a custom catered meal will defiantly help in making that lasting positive impression.
