With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, most people are left unable to leave the house apart from having to purchase basic necessities. Now that normal life has been thrown out of balance, countless companies have either had to close or switch up their business model to adapt to the current situation. Either way, they’ve taken a huge hit to their profits, left wondering if they’re able to ride this pandemic out.
One such business is Manna Pot Catering, a family-owned, halal-certified catering company specialising in weddings and corporate events. With the advent of COVID-19, those events have essentially been put on hold indefinitely. What’s a catering company that usually handles large scale events and functions to do then? The solution is to instead pivot the business to focus on food deliveries and smaller-scale family gatherings as a means of survival.
But that’s not to say there’s any compromise in quality at all with these new menus. To cater to those stuck at home, Manna Pot Catering introduces the all new grain bowl ($15.90 each), as a means of providing a healthier and more balanced option for people may not have the time to cook their meals while dealing with both work and family.
Hearty and healthy, premium ingredients are used in each bowl, ranging from honey glazed chicken to pan-roasted beef. All grain bowls also come with a complimentary drink of yuzu lemon with honey, with the option to switch to a canned drink or bottled water, or add a whole fruit to their meal (at an additional cost).
Meanwhile, the company has also introduced the mini party pack menu. With dining out no longer being an option, the best way to celebrate important events such as anniversaries and birthdays is at home. With the mini party pack menu, customers can select their favourite dishes from a wide variety of choices, including items such as chicken rendang, Yang Chow fried rice, Nonya chap chye, salted egg yolk fish skin, sambal sotong and more. Of course, a party is best celebrated in a group, and these food items are ideal for sharing within a household.
In addition, Manna Pot Catering has also introduced curated subscription plans for their grain bowls, offering 5 bowls at just $75 and 10 bowls at $150 (inclusive of one whole fruit per bowl). Manna Pot’s menu also changes weekly to keep their subscription plan fresh for customers. For the month of April, Manna Pot Catering is also running a promotion for free delivery for orders of 2 bowls and above, and for those under their subscription plans.
There’s a lot to love about the well balanced grain bowls from Manna Pot Catering. First off, there’s the premium ingredients they use, promising that every bowl will be something to look forward to. Even seemingly ordinary ingredients, such as couscous or the stir fried soba, tasted especially flavourful, thanks to the combination of ingredients used. Secondly, every delivery is made to order, and the result is a meal that’s evidently crafted with care. Details such as how the ingredients in each bowl are “plated” upon delivery, or how fresh they taste, is all the evidence you need.
Considering how the menu changes each week, subscribers can look forward to trying something new at every meal time, making it that much easier to get through circuit breaker.
