Publix Catering Menu & Prices

0 comments

As one of the largest employee-owned companies in the USA, you better believe that Publix does catering. Their menu is extensive and is great for feeding huge numbers of people. How many? The good news is that you are about to find out as we tell you everything you need to know about Publix and show you the best bits of the Publix catering menu.

publix

What is Publix?

Publics is a food store, grocery, and pharmacy that you will find predominantly in the southern US states. To date, they have 1,270 stores located throughout the United States, with the highest concentration being found in Florida and the second highest being in Georgia. 

Among several things that Publix is famous for, you’ll find their dairy, deli, and bakery all produce a fantastic range of foods. It should come as no surprise, they also have their own catering school!

Whether you are entertaining a small crowd or catering for a larger event, you are more than likely to find what you need at Publix. What’s more, they are very competitively priced, so if you are looking for great value, you are in the right place. 

What Does Publix Offer for Catering? Publix Catering Menu Explained

There is a whole range of dishes on the Publix catering menu. The list is quite extensive, so there are plenty of choices. On the Publix catering menu, you’ll find: –

Fruit, Cheese, and Vegetable Platters

fruits

Imagine platters piled high with an assortment of fresh fruit. The fruit platters from Publix are fresh, juicy, and absolutely delicious. The fruits included do vary based on seasonality. Still, generally, you can expect to find things such as melon cubes, fresh orange segments, apples, fresh strawberries, grapes, and more.

Cheese

The cheeses on the Publix deli platters are as varied as the fruit. Generally, you can expect to get around 8 different kinds of cheese with each platter. There is sharp and tangy cheddar, mild and creamy Gouda, Colby, swiss cheese, Havarti, Muenster, smoked gruyere, and spicy pepper jack

Vegetables

Publix describes its vegetables as ‘garden-fresh,’ and we are inclined to agree. When we tried Publix catering, we were impressed with the quality. You’ll find trimmed and cut carrots, celery sticks, cucumber batons, fresh tomatoes, broccoli, and other crudite, all accompanied with a sour cream and blue cheese dips.

Deli Meats Samplers

If you want to know what Publix catering is famous for, the meat platters might just be it. In fact, they don’t really call them ‘meat platters’. They are called “Boars head” carousels. This should give you an idea of the size and substantialness of these plates.

Generally, each boars head platter has a theme: –

Turkey Carousel

The clue is in the name. Literally, this is a full platter loaded high with slices with lean and tasty smoked turkey. This is great to order as a supplement to some of the other platters, as turkey slices tend to go before any of the other meats. 

Connoisseurs Choice

This is a great option for those looking for a little more choice. You’ll get three different types of meat as part of the Publix catering menu, including juicy roast beef, savory and slightly salty ham, and turkey slices as described as above.

Chicken Platter

It’s not a party unless there’s some tasty chicken on offer. These aren’t boring slices, oh no. 

On the boar’s head chicken platter, you’ll find buffalo and ever roast chicken breast. Both are crispy and utterly delicious. They are served with a mix of cheeses and dips.

Italian Virtuoso

Again the clue in the name. This is very much what most people would call a European deli platter. You can expect to find a huge pile of cured meats. These include Genoa salami, deluxe ham, ham cappy, and provolone cheese. And it doesn’t end there either. You’ll also find the Italian virtuosa boars head platter is accompanied by a delicious mustard dip. 

Terrific Quintet

We love to pair this one up with a bread platter. It is just perfect for making sandwiches. You’ll find slices of savory roast beef, roasted turkey cut into fine slices, and sweet and salty maple honey ham, all accompanied by spicy mustard. (See? We told you it would be amazing for sandwiches)

Nibbler

Listen, we get it. Sometimes you aren’t trying to feed the 5000 and just want something a little lighter that you and your guests can just pick at. If that is what you are looking for, then the nibbler platter could be for you.

The nibbler platter is a little of everything, including a mix of cheeses, sliced turkey, salami, and ham.

Publix Deli Sides

If you are looking for catering, you’ll already know that it isn’t just about the main courses. You want accompaniments. The good news is that the Publix catering menu also includes a huge range of deli-style sides. Here’s what you’ll find: –

Greek Salad

Greek salad has to be one of our favorites as deli sides go. Think crunchy and sweet bell peppers mixed with dark olives, chunks of salty feta cheese, fresh chopped cherry tomatoes, red onions, and a little potato salad, too (ok, that last bit isn’t authentic, but who cares, it tastes amazing!)

Olive Assortment

Which do you prefer, the green ones or the black ones? It won’t matter as the Publix catering menu deli sides contain both.

Cobb Salad

When we hold an event, the cobb salad is one of the first things to disappear. Fresh guac, hard-boiled eggs, crispy bacon chunks, onions, tomato, turkey, and blue cheese. What’s not to love.

Caprese Salad

If you’ve gone for the Italian Virtuoso platter, then this is the ideal side to go with it. Thick discs of creamy mozzarella are paired with basil, balsamic, and thick, juicy beefsteak tomatoes!

Pickled Relish

Again, this one is ideal as a light side or an accessory if you present sandwiches. This is simply a selection of crunchy, sweet, and zesty relishes, along with gherkins, olives, pickles, and vegetables.

Executive Salad

Can’t decide what you want from the Publix catering menu? Don’t worry, we’ve got you.

The executive salad ticks all the boxes. Each Public side platter comes with a mix of all of the above and is accompanied by chips, fruit, and a drink. This one is ideal if you cater for a small corporate event or for a few employees in a company. 

Publix Finger Food

Deli foods are all good and well, but you maybe want something cooked? Well, you don’t need to worry as the Publix catering menu also includes a selection of hot finger foods. Want to see what’s there? Check these out: –

Cubanitos

For the unfamiliar, Cubanitos are smaller sandwiches that make the perfect finger food. Cuban bread is slightly different than what you are more than likely used to. It is lighter and slightly crispier. The fillings really make this platter. You’ll be presented with a choice of cooked meats such as roast beef, turkey, ham, and even Swiss cheese, all accompanied with a range of pickles.


Entertainer

If you want more traditional sandwiches, the Publix entertainer platter is where it is at. These small finger rolls and croissants are filled with delicious and traditional sandwich fillings such as egg mayo, roast chicken, ham, cheddar jack cheese, and a choice of salad.

Party Pinwheels

You won’t go far wrong with Publix party pinwheels for a table centerpiece. Essentially this is a huge ring of cracker bread sandwiches with a choice of fillings. You can choose one type or mix and match. Perfect!

Popcorn Chicken 

What’s a party without a little fried chicken. Popcorn chicken is bite-sized nuggets of coated chicken served with tasty sauces like honey barbecue, garlic mayo, and sweet and sour.

Sub Selections

The subs are very similar to the Publix entertainer platter, but they are a lot bigger. If you are feeding a crowd (or even a whole team). There are a few options to try, including an Italian selection, American with pastrami, roast beef, and smoked turkey, along with the usual favorites like simple ham and cheese.

Wrap Platters

Remember we are talking finger food, so you won’t need to worry about huge wraps. Instead, these are miniature versions that you’ll find every day in the Publix deli.

What Sizes are Available on the Publix Catering Menu?

The Publix catering menu offers a range of sizes in most of their platters. There are actually two scales. The regular scale and the ‘boars head scale’ are normally annotated on the Publix catering menu with a ‘B’ in front of the size.

You’ll find: –

  • Small (S) -This is ideally suited to serve around 8 -12 people. Obviously, you can extend this by accessorizing your choice with other sides.
  • Medium (M) – Medium size on the Publix catering menu is designed to ideally feed between 16 and 20 people
  • Large (L) – If you are catering for a large crowd, then large is where it is at. Large can serve between 26 – 30 people.

What is in a Publix Entertainer Platter?

The Publix entertainer platter has to be one of our favorites. This is probably what most people think of when they are looking at ‘party’ catering… Hence the name. The bread used varies depending on the location of your local store. 

Generally, you’ll find either floury finger rolls or croissants are used to make delicious sandwiches. These are filled with a variety of fillings. You can either choose to opt for all of the same fillings or go for a real mix. The choice of fillings includes: –

Tasty and thick slices of cured ham

Egg and creamy mayonnaise 

Tuna mayo, with lemon pepper seasoning

Chunky chicken salad (our personal favorite).

How Many Does a Publix Ringleader Feed?

The number of people a ringleader platter serves depends entirely on the size you order (and how hungry your guests are). All of the Boar’s head ringleader platters serve a minimum of 8 -12 people. Here are the options that you’ll find available on the Publix catering menu: –

  • Boars Head Ringleader Roast Beef
  • Boars Head Ringleader Turkey
  • Boars Head Ultimate Ringleader
  • Publix Deli Ringleader Chicken

Wait, what is a Publix ringleader?

Well, imagine a sandwich that is made of bread baked in a ring. Due to some creative baking skills, it is possible to tear out a whole sandwich from the ring. It is a really great choice if you are creating a sharing platter or two.

How Do You Order Catering from Publix?

Ordering catering from Publix is pretty simple. First, visit their website and locate your nearest store. From there, you can either call to place an order, but your best bet is to visit and place your order in-store.

Publix doesn’t currently offer online ordering, but they are developing a system where this will be supported. 

Publix makes all of its party platters and catering from fresh. As a result, you will need to allow them sufficient time to prepare your catering order, especially if it is a large order! For large party sizes, Publix recommends allowing 24 hours between placing your order and coming to pick it up. 

If you don’t feel like driving to the store to pick it up, it is no problem with Publix. Publix currently offers delivery and shipping via Instacart, and in some instances, can even offer same-day delivery. Publix catering delivery is only available in the states that they serve.

Conclusion

There’s quite a lot of choice on the Publix catering menu, and the boar’s head ringleader really is something special. Our advice would be to over-cater slightly. Not only will you not leave your guests hungry, but there’s a good chance of a few leftovers for a few midweek lunches. What are you thinking of ordering? Ever used the Publix catering menu? How did you find it?
