Days at work can be long and tedious, and business lunches are a great way to break up the work day with a change of location. Business lunch is also a great way to get together with clients, employees, or potential partners to get some work done and get to know each other (while enjoying a delicious meal, of course!). Here are some easy tips for having a better business lunch.
Pick the Venue
Picking the perfect location is critical to a great business lunch. Make sure you have been to the restaurant before so that you know the service and environment is good. Pay special attention to how noisy the restaurant is, especially if you will be talking business. The last thing you want is to be screaming at each other just to hear. Also, ensure that you can make reservations at the restaurant. Lunch is a busy time for many people, and popular restaurants may be full before you make it there for your business lunch.
Pick the Menu
If you know the person who you are meeting with well, try to choose a restaurant that serves food they love. Are they a fan of Italian food? Basta Pasta is the perfect place! Do they like sandwiches and delicious appetizers? Basta Pasta is a great option. By choosing a menu that your dining partner will like, you ensure that they will be comfortable and well fed during the business lunch, leaving them with a positive impression.
Pick the Seating
If you are meeting with multiple different business owners or people, make sure that you sit down strategically. Guide the conversation and make sure that you have a few ready-to-go topics before you ever sit down to make everyone comfortable. Sitting strategically ensures that the meeting will be productive, you will be able to control the pace of the business lunch, and that you will be able to grab the check.
