January can be a bleak month for many. After an indulgent festive period, filled with rich foods and celebrations, many opt to abstain from indulging too much, committing to strict diets for their new year’s resolutions or choosing to take part in ‘veganuary’ and becoming vegan for the month of January.
When Is National Pie Day
With blue Monday usually falling on the third Monday of January, allegedly the most depressing day of the year, and dry January meaning that many choose to skip their usual weekend tipple.
National Pie day on January 23rd is perhaps the perfect excuse to have a brief break from the constrictions you have committed yourself to for this austere and dreary month. Getting people together for some warming comfort food and a party is undoubtedly one of the best ways to overcome the January blues.
Who Invented It?
National Pie Day is an international annual celebration of pies, and all of their merits. Invented by Charlie Papazian – an American nuclear engineer, brewer and author. He declared his birthday – 23rd of January to be National pie day, and since 1986, this celebration has been sponsored by the American Pie Council.
This international celebration of the pie might be the perfect opportunity for you to offer your employees a morale-boosting and motivational reward for all of their hard work the previous year, and what better way to celebrate National Pie day, than with a British classic – pie and mash. Maybe a busy festive period left no time for a Christmas party in December, so you’re looking for an (albeit slightly late) alternative time and excuse to throw an event.
Pie & Mash Van Hire
KK Catering offer Pie and mash van hire for any celebration, offering you an easy and stress-free way to ensure that your guests’ appetites are sated, with minimal hassle.
Street food and mobile catering is perhaps one of the most sociable means of event catering. With guests able to collect food as they please, in their own time without interrupting the social chat, announcements, speeches, dancing, and any other fun or highlights at your event, allowing it to run smoothly and ensuring that everyone has a great time.
A YouGov poll recently determined that the average Brit’s ideal temperature is around 21 degrees. This, of course, isn’t practical when you’re holding an event in the winter and are keen for your friends, family, neighbours and work colleagues to venture out to it.
Let’s not forget the fact that your winter event might also have to take a backseat to Christmas – a recent Bobatoo survey found that 53% of people leave their Christmas shopping to November, while a further 24% don’t make a start until December. So, how can you entice people to your gathering when the odds are against you this winter? The food, that’s how. Here’s how the catering can ensure that your guests RSVP ‘yes’ to your event this winter.
It will surely be attractive to some people that you’re the one footing the bill for the food. Thankfully, you need not be out of pocket even when you’re feeding numerous mouths. Instead, you can save cash by choosing an affordable yet scrumptious meal with an option like burger van hire.
It will be a great positive for your guests that the delicious food isn’t costing them a penny.
You just can’t beat the lure of a stand up meal during the winter. The right catering option – whether it’s a Mexican burrito bar or fish and chip van hire – will provide a much more leisurely setting for people to enjoy their food. It ultimately gives them the chance to socialise and enjoy the delicious food at their own pace during what’s typically a busy time of year.
Eating is, of course, a necessity. Since it’s what’s needed to give people energy, a hearty meal can be very attractive to some over the winter.
Take, for instance, pie and mash van hire. It’s a substantial meal that will keep people warm and full of life during a time of year when multiple social gatherings can leave them lacking energy.
The Answer Is Clear!
Don’t you think that it’s time you started thinking about what food will entice people to your event this winter? If you’re keen to guarantee that there’ll be plenty of guests showing up rather than skipping out, be sure to check out the amazing catering options at KK Catering.
It might seem odd to be talking about Christmas party planning when we haven’t even reached the end of September yet, but you’d be surprised how quickly things get booked up over the Christmas period! If you want to plan the perfect office Christmas party that leaves your team buzzing well into the new year, read on…
Put someone in charge of the party
We all have that one person in the office who LOVES to plan a party. Don’t fight it, and don’t try to make it a committee job, just let them run the show!
With one person in charge, you can cut down on miscommunications and guarantee that everything will be ready on the night. They can always delegate tasks as needed, but there should always be one point of contact who knows what’s what!
People might confirm now and then flake at the last minute, or they might say they can’t make it and then show up with all their friends in tow. Trying to get accurate numbers for a Christmas party is impossible, so make a rough estimate that is little higher than conservative.
Be clear in the invites
No one likes showing up at a formal party wearing jeans. It’s almost as mortifying as showing up to a casual party in a ball gown. Make sure you’re clear in the invite what kind of party it is and what your guests can expect.
Is it just for staff to have a big blow out, or will you be inviting clients and making it a kind of networking event? Don’t leave out any big surprises that could ruin the night for your team.
Structure the night
People want an event, so make sure there is some structure to the evening. You could start with a sit-down meal, clear the tables to make way for the dance-floor and then have some entertainment to spice things up. Keep it varied to make sure there is something for everyone, and don’t centre everything around booze. By all means have a dance floor and DJ, but you could also set up a video games station or giant lawn games to keep those who aren’t fussed about dancing entertained.
Don’t let anyone go hungry
One of the best parts of Christmas is the abundance of food and your office Christmas party should be no different! There should always be food available for those who get peckish throughout the night, even if it’s just a snack table full of nibbles. Your party goers will also appreciate a late night pick-me-up, so why not look for a burger van hire to send everyone home on a cheerful note?
World Smile Day – an annual celebration of generosity and good cheer – is coming up on Friday, 5 October. We have the perfect solution for any merry organisations hoping to have some fun on the day.
Treating your employees to a special lunch of delicious street food is the perfect way to ensure happy grins all round. As well as bringing colleagues together over a mirthful meal.
Ultimately, World Smile Day is about small acts of kindness and good will that tend to go unnoticed in today’s busy world. Getting involved can reap some great benefits including:
Recognising the hard work your employees put in every day
Keeping employee morale up can be difficult at times, even if everyone loves their job and is generally happy in their role. Providing a treat is a great way to keep the office buzz alive and ensure productivity remains high.
Demonstrating that you are a business that is open to new ideas
It’s not every day that you hear of a van full of delicious treats turning up to a workplace. So food van hire is a great way to demonstrate that your company is innovative in its approach to employee care.
Why not surprise employees on the day? There’s no better feeling than preparing to eat a soggy cheese sandwich for lunch and unexpectedly trading it in for a succulent burger!
Showing appreciation for colleagues without breaking the bank
Many companies go out of their way to treat colleagues to lavish meals or days away. However, these can be expensive and may only be on offer to senior members of the company.
A street food van is the perfect way to put a smile on everyone’s faces while sticking to a sensible budget.
Encouraging employees to try delicious new cuisine
At KKCatering, we have a range of fantastic menus on offer. Inspired by street food around the world. For those playing it safe, we offer pizza van hire or burger van hire. For those hoping to open their colleagues up to new tastes, however, we offer Mexican burritos, Greek Souvlaki or German Bavarian BBQ vans to name a few.
Head to our website to check out the full range of options.

To celebrate yourself, why not book one of our gourmet burger vans?

Everyone Is Catered For
You could be forgiven for immediately bringing to mind a series of greasy meaty patties smothered with cheese, sauce, bacon, and other delicious accoutrements. And if that’s what you want, there’s nothing better!
But those who don’t eat meat are not excluded from the joys of National Burger Day. Our splendid chefs take great pride in offering up a variety of vegetarian, and vegan on request, options that might just even make the meat eaters jealous.
