Ten of your friends are coming over to watch the big game tonight. Your manager just asked you to order in for an impromptu team lunch on Friday. You’re in charge of throwing your friend’s engagement party next weekend.
Do you instantly think in a composed, yet subtly panicked way: how am I going to order food for THAT many people? At your service, my grace. Read on to find out how easy it is to (and why you should) order for groups with Grubhub catering.
But why should I use catering vs. ordering multiple dishes?
Well, we’ve got a few reasons why. When using the catering option, restaurants tend to give you a break on the pricing, since you’re ordering in larger quantities. Additionally, restaurants will tell you about how many people each platter feeds, so you’re able to order according to the size of your group vs. guesstimating. Some catering platters are built to feed as few as five people, while others serve as many as 75! Oh, and another big value add? The delivery driver will come in and set up all of the food for you. Sounds nice, right?
I’m new to this whole catering thing. How do I do it?
Step by step, that’s how. Rule of thumb: place your order at least 24 hours in advance, to give the restaurant enough time to prepare it. Still want that quick and easy rundown? We thought you’d never ask. Hit it, maestro.
