Regardless of the type of event you are hosting, the food and drinks served are essential aspects of the gathering. There is a strong connection between hospitality and productivity, as “breaking bread” sparks conversation, conveys warmth, invokes creativity and decision-making. Fueling the body with healthy and delicious foods fuels the mind. In choosing the right venue for a formal or informal corporate event, product launch, banquet, wedding, workshop, awards ceremony, class reunion, or company-wide party, the food service is paramount to your success.
Customizable Menus for Every Family Celebration or Corporate Event
At the Canterbury Conference Center, our food service staff stays current on contemporary culinary trends. For many events, conventional comfort foods from the past are being replaced with more healthy choices. Farm-to-table meals are popular, sourced from local Florida farms. We cater to all dietary restrictions and preferences of our guests. Our chefs and culinary staff can accommodate gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, nut-free, and low or no-carb options. Globally inspired foods are another option, such as traditional American, Italian, or Asian cuisine. If you can dream it, we can do it.
We Will Captivate Your Guests
A well-planned menu sets the tone of your event and elevates the guest experience. When inviting your employees or guests, please give them a glimpse of the menu to set the tone for the evening. A barbecue or a buffet with numerous food items is casual and relaxed, and guests can freely mix and mingle. Whether your event is for a day or a week at the Canterbury Conference Center, we offer delectable food choices. Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets are designed to impress.
Your employees or guests start the day with a delightful spread of classic breakfast favorites. Our lunch fare offers exciting options, going beyond the usual with a selection of flavorsome and healthy foods. Our dinner buffets are a culinary delight! Exquisite meals and displays await you and your guests, specially crafted by our chefs to please all tastes. Dinner is topped off with an assortment of desserts to celebrate the season or the choices you request. In addition, the Canterbury Conference Center offers an optional service of corporate meeting break snacks and meeting break enhancements.
The Canterbury Conference Center Accommodates Events of all Sizes
With two separate event rooms, we can accommodate meetings of various sizes. Our St. Paul room can host a celebration or corporate meeting for up to 200 attendees.
