Large Quantity/Wholsale Cold Cuts

JoshInDC | Sep 12, 2007 07:21 AM

I'm organizing a lunch where I would like to set out a cold cut spread for about 100 people.

I'm wondering where to go shopping. Chain supermarkets don't really seem like the right place. I can't imagine walking into Giant and asking for 20 lbs of ham, 20 lbs of turkey, and 20 lbs of cheese to be sliced for me! Plus, these places sell by the pound, and probably can't cut you a wholesale deal.

Has anyone thrown a lunch where they've bought large quantities of deli meat? Does costco sell this?

Sniders comes to mind as a good independent market/deli where I could actually talk to a deli manager and buy a whole thing of meat and cheese, sliced, paying less than the per pound price.

FYI, the really helpful planning site I found.
