Employee Cookouts are the antithesis to the company holiday party. In lieu of formal attire, satin, ties and white tablecloth dinners, barbeques invite ballpark ready clothes, cotton dresses, shorts and paper napkins. Instead of having yours at a local park, why not let The Franciscan host? You won’t have permits to obtain, insurance to secure, food to bring in, or a mess to clean up. Choose from Beef Brisket, Carolina Pork, Chicken Breasts, Pork Ribs and sides like Baked Beans, Tossed Salad, Potato Salad, Pasta Salad, Macaroni Salad, Cole Slaw, Potato Chips, and Seasoned Corn. We have non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages to suit all of your guests. If the Colorado weather becomes unpredictable, you won’t have to worry about the party ending prematurely, our indoor rooms can easily accommodate guests and keep the festivities going. There are a few reasons you should consider having a barbeque for your employees.

  • They’re family friendly. Many work events are centered around happy hours and conferences. Employees have to choose between work travel and getting home late to be part of the “team.” Barbeques are laid back affairs where, in the words of Chuck E Cheese, “a kid can be a kid!”
  • Appeal to a wide variety of employees. Everyone likes to eat and have a good time. Employee events can reach beyond a bar or bowling alley. Who doesn’t like a cookout?
  • Show your appreciation and boost morale. Spending time and effort planning a party to show you care is not mandatory and employees get that. Taking the extra step shows you value their work and want them to unwind having an enjoyable time.

While the food is a main focus, your barbeque should consider adding in the following activities:

  • Bocce Ball
  • Croquet
  • Cornhole
  • Horseshoes
  • Kickball
  • Softball
  • Washers

For those more athletically inclined, we’d love to see more potato sack and wheelbarrow races. If you go with a theme consider a beach party, wild-west, or luau. We love hosting events, big or small, and would relish (YUM) the chance to cater and host your company barbeque. Give us a call at (303) 790-0477 to start the planning today.
