Rocky Mountain Food Tours

For this year’s team building activity, ditch the awkward picnic and do something unique to make your team feel loved and valued!

Colorado is full of innovative businesses, looking to be set apart from the ways of corporate America. Many businesses are prioritizing company culture – hiring for “cultural fit” before skill or experience and improving benefits to keep employees happy. Many companies have started investing more time and money into meaningful team building experiences. However, when it comes to picking an activity that’s unique, inclusive, engaging, and affordable, a lot of companies are coming up short.

Here’s why a food tour is the perfect option for your next team building experience in Colorado Springs!

 

Food tours are a unique activity and show your team you care.

Team Building Activities in Colorado Springs

Your team is special, so your team building activity should be too! We’ve all been to our fair share of work gatherings that haven’t exactly met expectations. After all, it can be a challenge to find an activity that will appeal to everyone in a large group. If you’re ever tried planning an office party or team building experience in Colorado Springs, you’ve likely run into the same old suggestions – cocktail hour at a bar, games in the office, a day at the park, and so on.

To be frank, there simply aren’t many options that are unique, while also being inclusive and affordable. However, a food tour is a unique and thoughtful way to show your team you’ve put effort and thought into making your team building experience memorable and valuable.

 

Everyone eats (and loves) food!  

Team Building Activities in Colorado Springs

Go-kart racing, high ropes courses, skiing, etc. – a lot of common team building experiences available in Colorado require that everyone in your company be physically fit or interested in physical activities, however, for some companies, that could exclude a portion of your team. Aside from being physically fit, some team members simply might not be interested in activities like go-karting. It’s important that your team building experience includes your whole team and doesn’t isolate any team members due to physical abilities.

With that said, we introduce you to the team building experience nobody can deny – a food tour! Correct us if we’re wrong, but everyone likes food! As part of your food tour team building experience, you’ll explore various restaurants local to Colorado Springs, meaning there will be something for everyone along the way!

 

A food tour gives your team time to relax together outside of the office environment.

While it’s definitely possible to bond as a team within the office environment, getting away from your desks can help alleviate stress, loosen any existing tension, and remind everyone in the office that you’re all just normal people! A food tour is the perfect way to get out of the daily grind and enjoy time together as a team. Our process ensures that nobody on the team is worried or stressed about coordinating the event – so everyone can relax, even the office party planner.

 

Food tours foster conversation and storytelling!

Team Building Activities in Colorado Springs

If you’ve ever been to a work party or cocktail hour, you may have found that it can be hard to find common ground with some of your coworkers outside of work conversations. You might chat about your kids, your next vacation, or the weather, followed by an awkward silence until you begin to talk about your latest project at work.

On the other hand, there are team building exercises that fail to leave any room for conversation, meaning all you’ve achieved is the establishment of a bitter laser tag rivalry between Dave in accounting and Jessica in HR.

A successful team building experience should toe the fine line between facilitating the activity and leaving room for conversations.

On a Rocky Mountain Food Tour, you’ll be led by an interactive local guide who will tell of the unique history of Colorado Springs, share about its vibrant restaurant scene, and introduce you to the area’s top chefs and restaurant owners. While tasting unique cuisine from some of Colorado Springs’ most impressive restaurants, your team will be inspired to share stories of their favorite dishes, restaurant experiences, and travels around the globe.

 

Food tours provide a unique experience at an affordable price point.

Some companies opt for weeklong retreats or weekly catered lunches, however, not every company can afford the price tag associated with these events. A food tour provides the same luxury and exclusivity, without the extravagant price point. And for a portion of the cost, our guests can try food from not one restaurant, but four or five!

 

There’s nothing that bonds people like a table full of good food! Looking to plan a unique team building event in Colorado Springs? Click here to learn more about our custom group food tours!
