Stocking The Refreshment Bar At Your Annual Company Meeting

Stocking The Refreshment Bar At Your Annual Company Meeting

The company annual meeting is a great opportunity to connect, share updates, and inspire the team to do their best work in the year ahead. As you are planning your agenda, you will probably add in time for meals and snack breaks. 

To show the team you care and to thank them for all of their hard work and contributions to the company, you may want to go the extra mile with your refreshment bar during the meeting. To make this easy for you (and so that you only have to worry about the content of your meeting) we gathered up our best tips and favorite snacks to serve at meetings.

Best coffee for company meetings and events 

We might be biased, but we think our coffees are the best for company meetings and events (as well as the office, the home office, and anywhere else people drink coffee). At your company meeting consider grab-and-go individual cartons of our cold brew coffee for busy days. If you want to serve a lot of people our  larger boxes of cold brew are great for groups. Each box of cold brew coffee makes 16 glasses, so plan accordingly for your crowd. 

Top snacks for annual company meetings 

Since we’re a bunch of hungry bears, we think about snacks a lot. We rounded up some of our go-to snacks for meetings to share with you. We considered foods that provide great fuel for thinking but also fall into the main snacking categories: sweet, salty, and savory. Mix and match these snacks with fresh fruit, vegetables and dips, and your favorite non-coffee beverages to make the ultimate refreshment bar. If you’re still feeling nervous about buffet-style bars and sharing, opt for individually portioned snack offerings.

Onesto cookies

These delicious and soft-baked cookies are vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. They come in three flavors: cinnamon sugar, chocolate chip, and double chocolate chip to please any cookie-loving palate. Order directly from the Onesto Foods website.

Simple Mills snacks

Simple Mills offers a wide variety of crackers and cookies for everyone to enjoy. From soft-baked or crunchy cookies to pita crackers there is something for every snacker. For an afternoon pick-me-up or breakfast on the go, try the almond flour-based baked bars.

Kind bars 

Classic for a good reason - these delicious bars come in a wide variety of flavors featuring dried fruit and nuts as well as chocolate. If you are offering yogurt at your meeting, consider grabbing a few bags of granola as a crunchy topping for a build-your-own parfait station.

Big Spoon Roasters bars

We love Big Spoon Roasters nut butter and were pleased to see the product line include these bars - perfect for a company meeting. With luxurious flavors like cranberry cashew, figgy chai, and apricot pepita they will make meeting attendees feel fancy at snack time. 

Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP popcorn

For those who prefer more of a crunch at snacktime, try bags of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP popcorn. For attendees who still want something sweet, Angie’s is available in a kettle corn flavor.

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps

Another good choice for those who prefer a salty crunch. These pretzels are also available in a gluten-free variety. They’re delicious on their own or dipped in hummus, nut butter, or even chocolate!

Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups

For a little sweetness on your snack spread, add some Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups. Consider a mix of dark, milk, and white chocolate for the team that likes a little variety.

YumEarth candy 

For the team members who need a sweet treat, add some YumEarth candy to the mix. Popular choices include their gluten-free licorice and gummy candy. Free from many of the top allergens, this candy is safe for many people to enjoy.

Epic bars & bites

For anyone on the team who is doing the keto diet, or those just looking to pack in some more protein, consider adding some Epic products to the mix. These meat-based snacks may also be appropriate for anyone doing the Whole30 or paleo diet.

Since we bears are so busy making and packing all the coffee, we can’t gather and ship these snacks right to your meeting, but we CAN help you with the coffee portion. To keep things easy for you, let us set up your delivery and ensure you have all the coffee you need to keep the energy up at your next team meeting so you can focus on what’s important, growing your business, and celebrating your team.
