Hosting a Private Event This Summer With New York Food Trucks
With states across the U.S. relaxing COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, planning an intimate, private event this summer with food truck catering is the perfect way to celebrate with friends and family.
As more states move to relax stay-at-home and shelter-in-place guidelines, slowly (but, surely), many Americans are beginning to dream of summer in the city.
But, as COVID-19 still dominates our lives, large events (like, sports, concerts, and festivals) could still be off limits for the foreseeable future.
So, how can we enjoy some fun in the sun, in the company of friends and family, but on a smaller scale?
Take a look at how hosting a private event with catering from some of New York’s best food trucks can be a great way to spend time with loved ones in a “social-distancing” world.
This weekend, President Obama will join 20 African-American leaders and innovators across arts, government, business, and sports as part of J.P. Morgan Chase’s “Show Me Your Walk HBCU Edition,” helping college seniors celebrate their graduation virtually amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
As “virtual” graduations replace the time-honored tradition of donning a cap and gown, millions of college students across the U.S. are unable to share their milestone achievement with loved ones.
With more than half the states “reopening” their economies in some way or have plans to do so soon, many Americans are starting to look ahead with hopes of planning small gatherings.
Regardless, states that are “open for business” still have social-distancing guidelines in effect. For instance, Georgia’s measures only allow up to 10 restaurant patrons per every 300 sq. ft. and any public gatherings of over 10 people remain banned throughout the state.
While large-scale events will remain “off-limits” for the foreseeable future, it’s still possible to look-ahead and start planning smaller events and food truck catering is the perfect way to say “congrats grad!” in an intimate environment, with close friends and family, while practicing proper social distancing.
PLAN A STRESS-FREE BIRTHDAY PARTY
Ever plan a party and you find yourself so stressed out, that by the time the big day comes you’re too exhausted to even enjoy it? Well, you’re not alone. In 2013, researchers at Monash University in Melbourne concluded that parents who plan birthday parties for their children experience anxiety, not because of its financial cost, but rather by the planning process.
From crafty and intricate personal touches to elaborate and extravagant themes, it’s easy to get wrapped up in making sure your party is an absolute success, while underestimating the tremendous time and energy it takes to successfully execute.
Why not instead enjoy your party (instead of orbiting around it) and let battle-tested professionals handle the nitty-gritty? Professional food truck catering companies like the New York Food Truck Association are with you every step of the way to make sure everything is smooth sailing.
“How so?,” you may be asking yourself. From start-to-finish, NYFTA takes the stress of party planning off your plate and onto theirs, including:
Sourcing the right food trucks or carts.
Crafting custom menus just for your event with their in-house culinary team.
Handling billing and required paperwork.
And, much more!
