On May 6, 2019, the Tasty family joined together at Main Event in Hoffman Estates to celebrate a very exciting moment—30 years of providing exceptional catering and events to Chicagoland! The lively atmosphere served for the perfect stage for the hard-working team to let loose, relax, bond over delicious bites and let their inner kids play.
Totally Tasty scene
The party planning team decorated the venue with balloons (Tasty colors, of course!) and fun signage. They even provided a slideshow of employee photos from the past 30 years. As soon as employees arrived, the smiling crew at registration handed them a drink ticket and a game card with unlimited games!
We wanted to pay tribute to Tasty Catering’s beginnings in 1989, which is why the planning team coordinated a fun 80s-style photo booth. Guests tried on groovy gear and took turns capturing this awesome moment.
A delectable spread
After some light mingling and photo booth shenanigans, employees headed over to the beautiful buffet that was arranged for them. Some crowd favorites included: BBQ brisket tacos, bite-sized pretzels, bacon cheese sliders and two different types of bone-in chicken wings (Honey Sriracha and Sweet Chili).
There was a separate display for the desserts. We had a choice of cookies, vanilla and chocolate chip cupcakes or buttercream frosting cake, both provided by Jarosch. Yum!
All the feels
After employees settled and mingled over a drink or two, the leadership team gathered everyone together for a few important words. Tom, Larry and Kevin Walter extended their sincere appreciation to their incredible team for their years of commitment to the company and community at large. New CEO Kornel Grygo also said a few words of gratitude to the team and the Walter brothers. It was a proud and emotional moment for the entire Tasty Catering family.
After food and speeches, guests zoomed off in different directions to play games like: basketball, laser tag, air hockey, billiards, bowling and any arcade game they could get their hands on. There was even a high ropes course! And guess who showed up for a game or two? Tasty’s old mascot, Tasty Dawg! He’s actually pretty good at laser tag, as it turns out.
At the end of the night, the event team handed out logo shirts, which were designed and created for Tasty’s 30th anniversary. This celebration marked a pivotal moment in Tasty Catering’s history, and it honors an outstanding team that has been bringing people together for the last three decades. It was truly an enjoyable experience for everyone. Cheers!
