Corporate Catering Services
We offer three catering services in the Columbus area: drop-off, deluxe drop-off, and full-service. With our drop-off option, you can easily place an online order and choose your preferred time and date to have your items delivered. Our staff will freshly prepare your order, pack the items in aluminum pans or eco-friendly serving trays for your convenience, and bring your order right to your door.
Our deluxe drop-off option is perfect for events with 50 people or less and includes delivered dishes plus setup. We’ll also have tablecloths, serving ware, and stainless-steel chafers. When your function is over, we’ll return to clean up the catering setup.
Our full-service option includes delivered items and display setup using serving ware, disposable plateware, stainless-steel chafers, rolled plasticware, and black fitted floor-length linens for an elegant look. One of our staff members will be onsite to service your guests, refill items, keep things clean and tidy, and clean up and remove the display at the end of your function.

Taste Test Our Menu Before Your Event
Want a closer look at what we’ll be serving? We offer tastings so you can try our menu out for yourself! All tastings require a minimum notice of two weeks and should be scheduled for no later than 30 days before your function. Tastings are $30/person with a maximum of five people. If you sign a corporate catering contract with Simply Plated, the tasting charges will be applied to your overall balance (less gratuity).

We’ll then discuss the details of your function and the different menu options and share with you a catering proposal. When the proposal is approved, you will book your catered lunch or function by submitting a deposit and signing a contract and credit card authorization form. About a month out, we’ll confirm the details of your function. On the day of your catered function, we’ll handle setup, service, and cleanup so you can focus on enjoying the meal!
