5 Favorite Office Lunch Ideas

Our Top 5 Office Lunch Ideas

It doesn’t just need to be a sandwich!

We know. We’re Zingerman’s. We’re known for our sandwiches. Which is why, if you’ve enjoyed a catered lunch in the Ann Arbor area, you’ve likely had the pleasure of sampling them. If you’re planning to motivate your employees with a special lunch, the last thing you want to do is throw a predictable party. Check out these alternatives for your next corporate lunch!

BBQ Slider Bar

People love choices. So why not give them the option to create their own BBQ sliders? Our popular BBQ chicken, the slightly sweet hand-pulled BBQ beef, or the spicy Cuban Pork– Why not offer all three? Round out the meal with pimento cheese and tomatoes (great as a vegetarian option) and serve atop our mini salted brioche rolls for a Southern-style luncheon.

Hearty Pot Pies

As the cooler weather approaches, nothing is heartier and more comforting than a Zingerman’s made a pot pie. Offered all year round through catering, you can get your choice of Chicken, Beef, or Fungi. Order in January and February and you can even get individual pot pies as part of our bag lunches! Serve it with a green salad and some citrus fruit to keep things from getting too heavy, and you’ll have some very happy coworkers.

Spiced Beef Tagine

Do your employees like a little bit of exotic spice? Treat them to our Beef Tagine simmered with Epices de Cru tagine spices and fruit. Slightly sweet and very tender, it’s like pot roasts’ funky foreign cousin. Have vegetarians or non-beef eaters? Try the Lamb Tagine or the Veggie Tagine! Paired with a light Lemon Couscous and a green salad, there’s nothing humdrum about this meal.

Appetizer Hour

Meatballs, Veggie Skewers, and Crab puffs, oh my! Perhaps you’re looking for a less formal lunch. We all know it’s easy to get a filling meal from heavy hors d’oeuvres, so why not treat the staff to our Cheesemonger’s tray, Bacon and Blue dates and roasted veggies. They’ll be mingling so much, they might get lunch hour confused with Happy Hour.

Vegetarian Delight

Even if your entire office isn’t all veggie, everyone loves our Warm Fall Farro with acorn squash, kale, and goat cheese. It’s hearty, perfect for the season, and won’t make you feel like you need to take a nap during that afternoon meeting. Pair it with our vegan Ratatouille for a true vegetarian delight.
