SUBWAY has asked me to help promote SUBWAY Caters. I am being compensated for my participation in the program but all opinions expressed in the post are my own and not those of SUBWAY.
Now that the holidays are in full swing, there are parties just about every weekend. While I love catching up with old friends and family, I will admit that parties stress me out. I am not known for my cooking skills, so hosting a party at my home takes quite a bit of effort (and some positive self talk). I agonize over the menu and my less-than-Martha-Stewart quality decor to the point that the party is no longer fun.
This year, I decided to cut myself some slack. I decided to try Subway Caters. My family and I are regulars at our local Subway Restaurant as it is within walking distance of my home but I never realized they provided Holiday catering. By simply checking out the Subway Caters menu and then calling 877-360-CATER (2283), I placed an order to cater a post holiday get together with some good friends. The entire process, which would normally take me days to plan and prepare, took only ten minutes.
Because Subway Caters needs only a 24 hour advance notice before pick-up, it is the perfect option for unexpected guests or impromptu parties. When I arrived to pick-up, my order was neatly packed and the Staff was so kind as to load it in my car. I was pressed for time, so I was nervous that the pick up would take a long time, but I was in and out in less than 5 minutes.
With only 20 minutes to spare before the guests arrived, I threw on some easy Christmas tablescapes and arranged the Subway items on the table. It made for a very festive presentation! With more than half of our guests being children, I opted for the Boxed Lunches so the parents wouldn’t have to spend time preparing plates. The kids opted to have a picnic on the floor, so the boxed meals were perfect which included a sandwich, chips (or cookie) and a drink.
For the adults, I ordered a tray of more “daring” sandwiches including a variety of meats and toppings such as red onion, lettuce, tomatoes, and banana peppers. And because adults needs treats too, I ordered a special tray of cookies just for us!
Thanks to Subway Catering for allowing me to actually relax this holiday season! I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with friends instead of being stuck in the kitchen preparing food. We had a great experience and will definitely be back!
