• The Origins of Our Popular NYC Drop Off Catering Item: The Sandwich

Our New York City drop off catering kitchen prepares breakfasts, lunches, snacks, platters, coffee, and sandwiches for local Manhattan offices throughout the week for meetings, presentations, parties, and more. Sometimes we may stop and wonder - what is the origin of our top-selling item - the sandwich? Through various sources, we have found that the genesis of this satisfying meal originated from a story about John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. He didn't really 'invent' the sandwich but he may have made it popular. It is said that in approx.1762, he asked for meat to be served between slices of bread, to avoid interrupting a gambling game. This story may have been rumor or adverse propaganda, put about by his rivals. But soon people may have started ordering “the same as Sandwich”, and the name stuck! However it came about - we are happy to serve our Hudson Yards and Midtown West neighbors this delicious lunch option!
