This post is specifically for our Corporate customers who may need turkey catering for their office parties, but don't worry, another blog will come soon for those of you who only need catering for your home.
I want you first to take a deep breath. Whether you are planning for a group of 20 or for 200, planning for your office's Thanksgiving party can be overwhelming, to say the least. You might have been asking yourself, "Where do I even start?" Well, I'm glad you landed on this blog post -- this is a great place to start!
Not only are we able to cater the meal itself (with turkey and other fixings) but we're originally a bakery (going on 32 years now!) and will be baking some amazing desserts for this holiday. But let's start with the meal first.
For convenience, we've organized our meal into a package that serves 15-18 people. This way you can order as many or as little packages as you need. For a group of only 15? One package is perfect. Group of 150? Order 10 packages!
--Turkeys right out of the oven for a corporate event last year--
Each package includes:
- 16lb+ whole turkey
- homemade cornbread stuffing
- handmashed potatoes
- made-from-scratch gravy
That was the easy part. Now, the bigger your party, the more people you'll have to try to satisfy. Maybe there are some who are opposed to turkey, but like ham -- so we offer a Honeyed Ham served with our own homemade pineapple sauce. Maybe you have some vegetarians in the group? No problem, we have several vegetarian dishes to choose from including a Vegetable Tofu Plate and vegetarian pastas. Are we concerned about added some greens to the meal? We can add Sauteed Vegetables or salad on the side. What about some carbs? We also make fabulous dinner rolls, available in white or wheat.
And this is important: our food comes HOT AND READY TO EAT. A customer last year told me she once ordered turkey catering from another company and when she picked it up at lunch time, it was COLD! Not only will our meal be delivered hot (free delivery within 1-mile!), you can also request to have it pre-carved for only $10 more.
Whatever your needs are, we'll try to accomodate. Still feeling overwhelmed? Feel free to put the pressure on us. Give our Catering Manager a call and just specify the bare minimum: date and time of party, how many guests and any special requests (such as vegetarian dishes required) and we'll take care of it! Our Catering Managers will put together a customized menu for you and work with you until you are completely satisfied with what will be served this Thanksgiving.
On to my favorite part: the desserts! Because Pumpkin Pies are pretty much a must-have at Thanksgiving lunch or dinner, we offer a special on our Pumpkin Pies when you order the Turkey Package: 2 for $19.99. At an original price of $13.25 each, that's nearly a buy one get one half off deal.
But maybe you'll want a variety and that we can also help with. We bake a couple other pies: Apple, Cherry, Pecan, Chocolate Cream and Banana Cream (my personal favorite). All of our pies are baked from scratch, without the use of any artificial flavors or preservatives. That's what I love about our pies - made fresh with the everyday ingredients you can find in your grandma's kitchen.
Outside of pies we make a great Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Cake, and we also tweak our Pablo Tarts to be a little bit more festive:
