Giftlanthropist Spotlight: Tasty Catering
Tasty Catering focuses on creating a positive, engaging company culture to drive success—and people have taken note. The Chicago caterer has been recognized by Forbes as one of the 50 Best Small Companies of 2016, by the American Psychological Association as one of the healthiest places to work and several others for prioritizing a healthy culture.
Every year, Tasty Catering gives clients, partners and all kinds of corporate connections holiday gifts, not only to show their appreciation for the work they do together, but to remind them what made them chose Tasty in the first place: their culture. So, when we create their custom holiday corporate gifts, there's the unique challenge of incorporating their incredible culture into our gifts that give back.
Culture is not just what you do; it’s how you do it. Giving a generic gift and sincere card doesn't reflect the emotional connection Tasty has with its clients, but a donation in their name couldn't be shared with the client's whole office. As a small business, we also wanted to make sure Tasty could send to everyone on their list, so we made sure that each gift was under $50.
We've been working with Tasty Catering since 2008, and after eight holiday seasons, we like to get creative and change it up, making sure that their gifts that give back are fresh and festive. See how we customized their holiday gifts that give back for the perfect seasonal treat!
Custom Flavors of the Season
Because Tasty Catering is a caterer, we focused on the flavors of the season when customizing their gift. As the gifts were sent out just before Thanksgiving, we tried to mix fall classics and wintry cheer. Cinnamon Spice Peaces, Holly Jolly Jingle Mix, Caramel Apple Cookies and more made for the perfect combination of festive and flavorful.
Again, making sure to incorporate Tasty Catering's love of food into their cards, we created these custom cards with the cheerful message "Season's Eatings."
Bright, Festive Labels
The customization didn't stop there. We also changed up our labels to make the products as cheerful as possible, switching from our usual chic black to bright red.
To Ship or Not to Ship
Though we offer shipping to all 50 states, Tasty Catering has the privilege of working with many neighbors and nearby clients. This means that they can hand-deliver many of their gifts by sending them along with deliveries. Not only does this lower their shipping cost, it also adds a personal touch to each gift.
