Award Banquet Catering

When your employees do well, your students do well, or the athletes that you coach do well, you want to reward them. Give them something to aspire to with an awards banquet that makes each honoree feel like royalty. Many employees feel like their job is monotonous or like they’ll never get promoted. Inspire them to keep trying by issuing awards and presenting them in style. Students and athletes get tired throughout the academic year. If they do well, they get a pat on the back. Give them a reason to keep looking forward with an award that will make them feel good about their achievements. Improve morale then record the smiles and acceptance speeches for yearbooks and future work events that will inspire even more. Give them an event that really makes them want it…and make it all happen with Corky’s Catering in Chicago.
