Olive Garden Announces Catering for all Locations
Olive Garden is adding catering delivery to the menu at all restaurants in the U.S. and Canada. Designed to make organizing special events easier, catering delivery from Olive Garden allows hosts to spend more time with their guests and less time preparing the menu.
Olive Garden delivery specialists are available to assist with menu planning and will deliver food right to the door. To further assist with guests' events, Olive Garden's catering menu has Catering Meal Combinations, featuring bundles of Olive Garden favorites with variety for every taste at an affordable value.
"Our Olive Garden team members are always striving to make any occasion effortless for our guests so they can focus on quality time with their family and friends," says Dan Kiernan, executive vice president of operations for Olive Garden. "Our guests have long been utilizing our To Go experience for their large-party dining needs, so we're excited to offer another convenient option with delivery."
Catering delivery is available for minimum orders of $125 with a 15 percent delivery fee for orders up to $500 and a 5 percent delivery fee for every dollar thereafter. Each delivery order comes with grated cheese, serving and eating utensils, table covers, plates, napkins, and Olive Garden's signature mints. Chafing dishes, racks, and fuel are available for purchase to complete the experience.
In addition to catering delivery, Olive Garden is introducing new menu items:
Grilled Chicken and Grilled Vegetables Piadinas—a rich, buttery piadina filled with cheeses, fresh spinach, and a choice of grilled chicken or vegetables. With roots that go back centuries, this popular Italian street fare is now part of Olive Garden's Create Your Own Lunch Combination menu.
Create Your Own Tour of Italy—Guests can customize their own version of Olive Garden's Tour of Italy, featuring the guest's choice of three tastes on one plate.
Tuscan Sirloin—Grilled 11-ounce sirloin topped with garlic-herb butter and whole roasted garlic. Served with garlic-Parmesan mashed potatoes.
Mozzarella Fritti—An appetizer featuring golden-fried mozzarella cheese, topped with an Alfredo drizzle and served with marinara sauce.
