Economic downturn impacts the traditional Working Lunch


A new-era for business lunches? Venturi’s Table are providing ‘cook –you-own’ business lunches for client entertainment. Is this a clever marketing trick or a new business product.

It is certainly popular with a staggering 73% increase in ‘cook-your-own’ lunch events in the last four months  during the recession. This shows that some products can do well despite the recession. The secret is a good product that offer excellent value and meets the market situation.

The cookery centre which has hosted over 8,000 businesspeople since it opened in 2005, has noticed a sea change in the way its friendly, cookery events are used by companies, from a way to reward staff to an appropriate way to impress clients. Demand for the centre’s ‘cook-it-yourself’ business lunches coincides with a dramatic loss of trade amongst City restaurants, suggesting that when it comes to the working lunch, companies are now choosing to take a far less ‘corporate’ approach.

Venturi’s Table specialises in enjoyable cookery experiences which help build professional, business relationships. It is the UK’s only, dedicated, Corporate Cookery Centre where business professionals cook from scratch in covetable kitchens and then enjoy what they have made together, around the table. The cookery experiences use the role of enjoying delicious food in forming and building good teams.

Venturi’s Table clients include Google, Camelot, BP, Mars, PwC, Tesco, Deutsche Bank, Selfridges, Microsoft, De Beers, Coca-Cola and Pizza Express.
