Skip Cooking & Let Subway Cater Your Next Event + #Win a $50 Subway Gift Card!

FacebookTwitterPinterestAmazon Wish ListShare

Easter is quickly approaching and it’s time for bunnies everywhere to hide those eggs and prepare for another year of fun. Easter’s a great time for friends and family to get together, enjoy the season, and eat some yummy fare! However, if you’re anything like me, the thought of slaving away in the kitchen for hours on end to prepare a meal that’s devoured in a few minutes doesn’t exactly sound appealing. Let’s not forget the dishes and clean up to follow!

Because I am far from a “domestic diva”, I typically have our get togethers catered (insert happy dance here)! I place an order, pick up the food, and clean-up is a breeze when you combine catering with paper plates. Sounds divine, doesn’t it?

This year we will be using Subway to cater our event! Subway Fresh Catering offers an array of fresh platters and sandwiches for any occasion and at an affordable price. Each order is made fresh to your specifications and multiple options are available regardless of your party size.  What we love about Subway Catering is that there is a short lead time – orders can be placed 24 hours in advance and in some cases less!  We really love the idea of the “To Go Meals” that are certain to be a big hit with events involving kids!

Sandwich Platters


 Giant Subs

 Specialty Platters & Trays

 Subway To Go Meals


Hungry Yet? Head over and check out and see how affordable catering your next event really is!  Don’t forget to follow Subway on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with the latest news and score a few deals!

Win It!
One Lucky DM reader will WIN a $50 Subway Gift Card to help cater your next event!
