Lunch (to-go) for 100 (Seattle)

Any suggestions for where to get a decent lunch (nothing fancy) for about 100 hard working high school teachers and staff members? Word is, if we get them sub sandwiches one more time there will be an all out riot.
Delivery is perferable, but we could manage a pick-up if need be. Food might need to hold a bit as teachers will be handling 2 or 3 tasks during the 1.5 hour lunch break. School is located on Cap Hill. Anything in the downtown, UDistrict, Q Anne, Cap Hill....areas would be fine. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions!

  1. Is Gretchen's or Specialty's too close to the riot inducing sub sandwich lunch? They are both capable of box lunches to feed 100 and the food is better quality than a national chain sub store.

    Gretchen's Shoe Box Express
    2415 Airport Way S, Seattle, WA

    Specialty's Cafe & Bakery
    505 5th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104

    1. I worked for a company downtown near Fred Hutch and we had a company lunch and had Thai delivered from Rom Mai Thai. Their food is reliably good and the owner is incredibly nice.

        I used them for years downtown as a sales rep. Good variety to the menu and freshness.

        Here is their fax menu for Seattle, easy way to order with a lot of variety:

      2. Our office gets Ezells chicken sometimes - they'll deliver and it's always a hit. Plus, there's one in First Hill/CD if you have to pick it up.

        1. Gourmondo catering does a great boxed-lunch program.

          I'm pretty sure they deliver, too.

            gourmando will also do platters - their baguettes are way better than "subs" and they have nice salads.
