You’ve been assigned the task of planning the company party, executive luncheon, or grand opening of your new facility – and it’s time to get rolling! There are a wide range of corporate events that The French Gourmet caters in San Diego and produces on a regular basis.

We can provide you with china, glassware, party equipment rentals, waiters and bartenders, and refer you to many of San Diego’s top event specialists for the making of a memorable event.
Whether planning a corporate party or picnic, executive meeting, grand opening, conference, open house, luncheon, or employee or client appreciation party, there are many different service styles The French Gourmet offers for your consideration.
Catering services include:
- On-site Delivery
Delivery of corporate lunch boxes or party trays. We have a swift turnaround time for last minute orders. Set up and pick up of food-service equipment is also available. Consider this option when serving a meal during a meeting or office luncheon.
- Tray-passed Hors d’oeuvres
Small savory appetizers served before the meal, customarily with aperitifs or cocktails. They are usually one or two-bite sized and can be cold or hot. Servers offer your guests the selection of your choice on elegant trays. Perfect for a cocktail party or an open house to show off your offices!
- Display Table
As your guests arrive they are lured by this colorful and enticing array of foods, beautifully displayed on skirted tables. The food items are easy to eat and allow for a natural flow of your guests entering your event. This is an ideal scenario for a wine tasting or cocktail party.
Your guests serve themselves from a variety of dishes set out on a table or sideboard. Items may be hot or cold. Always a great idea for an office luncheon or larger corporate event.
Elegant, chef-attended stations that provide food to your guests in an elegant setting, while keeping your party lively. This style of service encourages networking!
- Sit Down Service
Your guests are served dinner at their table, consisting of several courses. Each table has servers assigned to take care of your guests in a friendly, unobtrusive manner.
Are you considering beverage service for your event? Not all caterers are licensed to provide alcohol service and may have to outsource it to another service. As a fully
licensed and insured catering company with a great service reputation, The French Gourmet is proud to be one of the few off-premise caterers in San Diego licensed for the service of alcoholic beverages. Most of the time, your arrangements can be made over the phone or by email. We give you one price you can depend on with your proposal, and it will cover everything from food to place settings, bar service to equipment rentals, and anything else you’ve specified as important. Once you’ve received a comprehensive quote, a tasting may be provided for you to fine tune your menu, if necessary. We’ll schedule a meeting at the party location with your assigned French Gourmet party or event manager to discuss the logistics of your event. This will enable you to get a feel for where everything will go and the overall flow of the party.
Making YOU look good is a priority for us! Planning the perfect event is never easy, but enlisting the help of a reputable and professional caterer like The French Gourmet will help ease the stress.
