Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes Boosts Catering

Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp. dba. Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes restaurants is expanding catering options in select areas. Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes’ catering service provides complete menus of entrée-size salads, freshly made soups, hot pasta dishes, and hand-crafted muffins and focaccia bread, along with cookies and brownies for a sweet finale.

Beginning October 1, Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes will expand the catering options in four test regions including San Diego, Dallas, Houston, and North Carolina by offering individual box lunches with salad sandwich wraps.

“The demand for individual packaging was brought to our attention by current catering customers who preferred individual packaged catering to a buffet-style option,” says Bob Mason, Garden Fresh director of catering. “The sandwich wraps are a great way for the company to continue to provide the traditional menu items, but in a new way.”

Each salad sandwich wrap is low calorie and made using a flaxseed oil whole-grain tortilla. There are five selections to choose from, including Very Vegetarian, Curried Chicken, Tantalizing Tuna, Classic Chicken Caesar Salad, and Wonton Chicken Happiness Salad. Catering box lunches start at $9.95 per person and include a freshly prepared salad sandwich wrap, chips, and a Souplantation famous chocolate chip cookie.

Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes catering is offered in 52 of the 115 locations across the country with a plan to expand catering in eight more stores within the next six months. Catering is perfect for functions of all kinds, from picnics to game-day buffets, bridal luncheons to housewarming parties, holiday celebrations to corporate luncheons and gatherings of every size.
