Grabbing food and eating breakfast on the run, whether they’re sitting on buses, catching trains, or driving their cars, isn’t a great start to your employees’ day. Skipping breakfast is even worse. People roll in late, harried, stressed and sluggish…and that sets the tone for the rest of their workday. 

As a decision-maker in your NJ or NYC office, you can prevent hangriness and slow starts by offering breakfast in the break room. Brainstorm office breakfast ideas with your team and make this feel-good daily kickoff an easy way to boost the whole team’s well-being. Here are the four biggest benefits of offering office breakfast, and ideas on what to provide: 

1 – Breakfast sets a happy mood for your team

Imagine how much of a relief it will be for your employees when they arrive at the office and breakfast is waiting for them in your break room. No one has to feel hassled about running late and skipping the day’s most important meal. Whether they didn’t have a chance to eat before arriving or could use a little nosh before getting down to business, treat your team to a positive start to the workday by offering office breakfast catering. We recommend featuring freshly brewed coffee, a selection of breakfast breads, cereals, fresh fruit, and more in this office “breakfast diner.”

2 – Offering office breakfast saves your employees time and money

Rather than have your employees waste time running to the local coffee shop or deli, they can go straight to the office and enjoy a nice breakfast spread “on the house.” No need to stand on line, waiting for someone to take and fill their order—and waste time doing so. Your employees will surely appreciate keeping a few dollars in their wallets, and by essentially “automating” office breakfast, the time you save really adds up in increased productivity!

3 – Breakfast office catering boosts energy, concentration, and productivity

At Corporate Essentials, we know how a great cup of coffee and delicious food fuel positive corporate culture … and keep employees energized, focused, and more productive during the workday. Stocking your NYC or NJ break room with nutritious, filling breakfast items not only gives them something delicious to look forward to each morning, it also helps your team maintain high energy levels and better concentration throughout the hours ahead.

4 – Breakfast catering promotes employee interaction (and higher morale)

The office break room provides a communal space for enjoying breakfast together while talking about the latest news, making after-work plans, and prepping for the day’s projects before heading off to individual workspaces. Offering breakfast in the break room builds additional social interaction into the workday, facilitating valuable conversation and potentially sparking innovative ideas.
