FOOD is the ingredient that bonds us TOGETHER, which makes it a perfect team building activity!


Breaking bread together creates a relaxed comfortable environment for bonding with your team. Sharing quality time over a meal provides a base to develop friendships and strengthen team bonds.

Afterall what is the purpose of team building if it is not to have fun together, improve communication, increase collaboration, and increase or maintain employee motivation. Food and wine, what is not to love.

As employers and workers are examining how to re-establish a cohesive, in-person work environment offering fun team building options is more important than ever. Team building should allow your employees to share a genuine, meaningful experiences. Bonding with your team members through activity outside of the office creates the opportunity to share quality talking time. Offering a local team building option that not only connects staff with each other but also helps connect to the small businesses that are in their work area is a double win.

Let the village be your corporate event venue of choice with Carlsbad Food Tours. Let us plan your company party or team building event. Join us for a taste of Carlsbad. People love food, drinks and learning about novel local places.

In the words of Priscilla Shin one of our corporate guests, who previously arranged a team outing with Carlsbad Food Tours:

Our office had great fun on this food tour and had six food stops (about half dessert, half savory). But easily the most enjoyable part of the tour was learning about the history of Carlsbad from our tour guide, David. He presented the story in such an engaging and well thought out manner and covered so many interesting dimensions of Carlsbad’s historical uniqueness. In terms of logistics, both David (our tour guide) and Cherimarie (Carlsbad Food Tours contact) were responsive and professional – it was just an exceptional experience all around! Thank you!
