Catering for Children's Parties

Back

Catering for childrens parties sounds simple enough, right? Well of course it can be, but churning out a few sandwiches with little sausages, crisps and pop won't exactly "WOW" your party go'ers or encourage parents to come back and book more parties.

Here at Total Foodservice we have got plenty of ideas to increase profits with add on sales and added value ideas, such as catering for adults at an extra cost or adding a special "treat menu". Take a look at our suggestions below.

Cold Buffet

Probably the most popular choice, cold buffets tend to be the most cost effective option for parents when choosing a party package. This is also the easiest option for your kitchen. Requiring the least amount of equipment and also meaning you can prepare ahead.

Sandwich Bread
 

Sandwich Breads

White, Wholemeal, Loaves, Rolls, Bagels and even Gluten Free options are available in our Sandwich Bread range.

Kids Favourite Sandwich Fillings
 

Kids Favourite Sandwich Fillings

Every party is going to include fussy eaters, fillings like Dairylea, cheese and jam will always please a young crowd.

 

 
Party Sausages
 

Party Sausages

Is it even a kids party if there are no little sausages? Always a favourite and at less than a penny each they're a great way to bulk out a party table.

 

 
Flapjacks
 

Sausage Rolls

Another party staple. Our range of Sausage Rolls have no artificial colourings and no MSG meaning they are perfect for kids.

 

 
Muffins
 

Sweet Biscuits

The point of a party is a treat, right? Add to the table and see their faces light up. Our sweet biscuit assortment is filled with the classics!

 

 
Handmade Cake Slices
 

Drinks

Put out jugs filled with cordial and fun paper cups or delight your party goers with a playful looking flavoured water or juice drink.

 

 

Hot Buffet

Does your playcentre have a kitchen? Then stand out from the crowd and offer hot items to feed the hungry little ones. Parents appreciate the option of a hot meal and are willing to pay extra per head which means extra profits for you.

Dipping Sauces
 

Dipping Sauces

Is it right to serve chips to children without offering ketchup? Don’t forget to put out small ramekins of sauce with a childrens buffet.

 

 

Added Value Extras

A great way to add profit to your party booking is to allow customers to Add Extras. Party bookers can pick a set buffet for a fixed price and then choose to add more premium items for an extra cost per head. Another great addition is to add an Adult Menu, including more premium products on this menu means customers are more likely to choose these for their grown-up friends, pleasing the parents will encourage them to come back and maybe even book another great party for their child too!
