I’ll admit it – I’m a sucker for the holiday season. From the moment it is (finally) appropriate to start preparing and decorating, I merrily start playing my bookmarked Christmas stations on Pandora and immediately get into the holiday spirit. But I will be the first to tell you that I’m no Martha Stewart. That gene skipped me unfortunately. I mean, we have one tree with a plethora of mismatched ornaments, my cookie dough comes from a prepackaged bag and our Christmas pajamas are far from matching. And every year I end up hosting a family dinner too, which inevitably stresses me out to no end. I have three solid dishes I can make without screwing them up – tacos, green bean casserole and frozen pizza. Unfortunately, these three dishes will not suffice a family holiday dinner either. So I spend weeks planning, prepping and cooking just to stress myself out to no end about a dinner that, in essence, should not require this much anxiety. This year I wanted to go the catered route but I’m a teacher so let’s be real, I don’t have a million dollar budget. After doing some research I found an affordable option that offered a variety and taste everyone would love – Fazoli’s, America’s fast casual Italian eatery.
The process was painless and super easy to order. After visiting their website, I was able to choose the meals, sides, beverages and even desserts that I wanted for dinner. On a rather reasonable budget, I was able to order two different main dishes, house salad with a variety of salad dressing, breadsticks, lemonade, sweet tea and even a platter of brownies! There were options to even order wire chafing for a buffet style meal too. Once I found my store, I placed my food order, decided on my pick-up day and time and hit submit all within a moment’s time. That was it. No shopping, prepping or sweating over the stove – Fazoli’s catering saved me so much time in my already busy schedule as well as saved me from a holiday anxiety attack.
When I picked up my food, everything was ready to go! Fazoli’s staff helped me carry it to my car and then sent me home to set everything up for my family dinner. My catering order even included plates, silverware and cups which was awesome because that meant less clean up for me afterwards! And the food was amazing! My family couldn’t rave enough about how delicious everything was and had no problems going in for plates of seconds and thirds.
So, would I use Fazoli’s catering for my next dinner event? ABSOLUTELY! The process was simple, the price was on point and the food was amazing. If we were referring to the theater business we would call that a triple threat, a Fazoli’s triple threat. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed!
