Morristown-based Villa Restaurant Group, a global multi-brand restaurant operator and franchisor, announced the expansion into online ordering for catering for two of its holdings, popular quick-service pizza brand Villa Italian Kitchen and better-for-you brand with on-the-go options, Green Leaf’s Beyond Great Salads. As of March 2018, both brands have the ability to fulfill orders for groups of 10–500-plus at corporate meetings, school functions, sporting events, fundraisers and more—all at the click of a button.

By visiting each brand’s website, catering page or Facebook, guests can choose their order details and plan the menu of their dreams. Villa Restaurant Group will take care of the rest, to provide the easiest ordering experience possible, and can accommodate last-minute needs. Additionally, all prices include plates, utensils, serving utensils and napkins.

“We are thrilled to make our catering offerings more accessible to consumers nationwide,” says Stephanie Beamer, Division Vice President, Franchise & Catering. “Making a catering order through Green Leaf’s and Villa Italian Kitchen has never been easier, thanks to our new platform and customizable options. We hope our loyal customers will be happy to see what we’ve done.”

Villa Italian Kitchen’s catering menu offers its world-famous pizzas, pastas and strombolis, all made with fresh ingredients including imported pasta, handmade dough, sauce made from fresh California tomatoes and 100 percent whole-milk mozzarella. At Green Leaf’s, guests can enjoy party platters complete with signature salads including Garden, Ceasar and Greek, wraps, soups and more.
