Whether you’re hosting a birthday party or managing an all-day training for your company, one thing is for sure: you need nourishing, fresh and delicious eats! That’s where LUX Catering & Events lunch catering in Salt Lake City can help. Let’s recap a few easy ways we can help you provide a delicious lunch for your team or event guests, shall we?
Example Salt Lake City Sandwich Catering Menu
Sandwiches go perfectly with soups and salad, so for an epic sandwich catering menu all guests will love, we recommend you jazz it up a little bit so people can pick what speaks to them that day! You could do something like:
An epic sandwich spread with both hot sandwiches at a slider bar action station and deli sandwiches, including:
- Flank steak slider on artisan bread
- Caprese bacon sliders on ciabatta
- Pulled pork slider on pretzel roll
- Bahn mi sandwiches featuring roast beef with cilantro, shredded Asian vegetables, jalapeño and cucumber on a housemade baguette with bahn mi aioli
- Artisan deli sandwiches featuring fresh local meats and cheeses, aiolis, artisan breads
Then complement the sandwiches with options like:
- Made-from-scratch chicken noodle soup
- Southwest salad featuring fajita seasoned chicken breast, greens, grape tomatoes, black beans, roasted corn, crumbled cotija, and tortilla strips with cilantro ranch
- A hummus bar with traditional hummus, roasted red pepper hummus and pasilla caper hummus with carrots, bell pepper strips and pita chips
Beyond Sandwich Catering with LUX Catering & Events
Now, everyone loves a good soup and sandwich pairing for a catered lunch. But that’s not all we can do! Teams throughout Salt Lake City have enjoyed taco bars, slider bars, plated entrees like Tuscan chicken or herbed pork loin Normande—the list goes on. We can help you choose the style of lunch catering in Salt Lake City that is best suited for your event’s unique requirements and vibe!
No two events are the same, so no menus should be the same, right? Here are a few different styles of lunches we can offer.
Action Station Lunches
If the lunch you’re hosting is celebratory, make it fun! The best way to do this is with chef action stations that get guests interacting with the food, mingling while they’re in line and enjoying every bite. A favorite is the Cheese Monger Bar, which allows guests to customize their own grilled cheese sandwiches with local, fresh ingredients.
Full-Service Catering Plated Lunches
These are great for board meetings or annual meetings! When people are seated listening to presentations, we can serve up some delicious eats. Think a soup for a starter, a tasty entree and dessert!
Buffet Catered Lunches
Ideal for company trainings or a social event like a retirement party, we can set up the ultimate lunchtime spread for your guests with all sorts of tasty fare. We can even label with dietary restrictions so everyone is taken care of! From dairy-free to gluten-free, vegetarian to vegan, we have something on the menu for everyone.
These are honestly one of our most popular options for a midday lunchtime fix! Choose a foodie box with an entree like a turkey cobb salad served with chips, a pickle and a fresh baked cookie. Or go for a salad box with options like antipasto or luau chicken with a baguette and dessert.
We may be biased, but we think it’s a bit better than lunch from Panera! Our chefs take the time to carefully curate each lunchtime menu item to meet your group’s unique catering needs.
Local Purveyors We Use for Our Salt Lake City Catered Lunch Events
Depending on the menu items you select for your catered lunch in Salt Lake City, we may pull in some of our local purveyor partners to provide local ingredients for your lunch spread! You may find:
- Fresh chicken for the ultimate chicken parm sub from Red Bird Farms
- Locally made cheeses like the Red Butte Hatch Chile or Queen Bee Porcini cheeses from Beehive Cheese
- Artisan deli meats for sandwich catering from Creminelli Fine Meats
And this is just a small sampling! For 25+ years, we’ve been using local Salt Lake City vendors to source our ingredients. This way, our clients are assured that they’re getting the freshest, highest-quality products around! It’s the only way to cater lunch, that’s for sure
