Bowling without pins? Playing baseball without bats? A company picnic without hot dogs? All just unthinkable! Who doesn’t love a fresh grilled dog served in the great outdoors, with your choice of condiments? 65% of Americans agree that barbeques and summer picnics are incomplete without hot dogs.* Can't argue that - facts are facts!! Picking a quality dog is more than just grabbing a frankfurter and tossing it on the grill. Before planning your picnic make sure your caterer is using "all beef" hot dogs. While this option may cost a bit more, the quality is worth the difference in taste and not to mention health. Your guests want a hot dog - not its distant cousin.
If you're depending on the hot dog to be the main attraction, then go big with a quarter pounder. Quick bites can be smaller just to satisfy the palate as a snack. And don't forget the vegetarians! Make sure you have tofu or turkey hot dogs on hand so no one goes hungry or feels forgotten. Menu planning is essential when booking a picnic for your team, and our staff at Team Play knows quality catering can make or break a company event. Keep in mind food allergies! Make sure to survey guests before hand via email to make sure you aren’t forgetting any basic dietary considerations. Not only will your menu be yummy, but your guests will feel welcome and know the event was planned just for them. One of the best things about a Team Play picnic is that our picnics always feature an all day hot bar! That’s right - ALL DAY! What better way to fill the bellies of the kids in attendance then with a great grilled dog? With the smell of grilling hot dogs in the air welcoming your picnic guests, the mood is set for a guaranteed great time. Those early arrivals can grab a dog to stave off any hunger before the meal service, as well as after the main buffet so there's always something easy and appealing to eat. Our event staff knows the way to every picnic goers heart is a direct path to their stomachs! Hot dogs are amazing when done right, and we know just how to grill up a great hot dog that is sure to please every member of your team.
