‘Tis the season to show your employees your appreciation by treating them to a memorable holiday office party! Planning the perfect party can take some time to make sure everything is executed correctly—from choosing the perfect venue to providing a top-notch menu, you’ll want to make sure everything is just right. That is why Chickie’s & Pete’s® is here to share a few expert holiday hosting tips to ensure your employees have a great time during this joyous event!

The Perfect Date

First things first—choosing a date for your party. For the most part, the holidays are an already stressful time for most people, so try to pick a date that is early in the season to avoid any complications. Make sure to give your employees adequate notice of when the party will be and request RSVPs so you have an estimate of who will be attending. This will help you down the road when you’re choosing food and drink amounts. Venues tend to book up quickly during the holidays, so lock in the perfect date and secure your spot ASAP!

Pick an Offsite Location

No one wants to rock around their cubicle, so if possible, choose an offsite location for the holiday office party. Look for a space that can be tailored to your company’s individual needs and one that is willing to work with any special accommodations you might require.

Delicious Food

The perfect date is picked, the best venue is secured and now for the fun part—choosing food for the party! Generally, you’ll want to offer more food than drink. It’s better to have a full stomach when alcohol is involved and having more food available will discourage overdrinking. If your party is only a couple hours long, simple sides and appetizers will suffice, as well as offering a cocktail or two to your guests. If you’re planning on partying into the night, heartier, more filling options would be the best choice. If you’re using a catering service, opt for one that offers package deals or customizable options. Chickie’s & Pete’s offers many delicious options for any size party including their world famous Crabfries®, Chickie’s® Wings, Cutlets and their Traditional Pete-zza!


It’s important to keep in mind the individual preferences of everyone who will be attending the party. Be sure to offer plenty of drink options including soft drinks and water as well as some alcohol. Chickie’s & Pete’s offers a wide range of beer, wine and fountain drink packages, perfectly tailored to the length and tastes of your party.
