Tuesday, Mar 17th : St. Patrick's Day ☘️ 🍻
The biggest celebratory event in March is always St. Patrick's Day. While this year street filled parting and celebration may be taking place at home, you can still think of creative solutions to reward your guests. So think of pickup or delivery orders that can capture the magic at home like green dyed drinks or cookies. If you have outdoor dinning with television view capabilities, a March Madness viewing party is a great way to try and make things feel normal again using safe distancing and wearing masks outside.
Sunday, Mar 28th: ✝️ Palm Sunday / ✡️ Passover
Mar 28th marks Palm Sunday for those of Christian faith and the first day of Passover for those of the Jewish faith. Being on a Sunday, family dinner specials or catering specials could be the perfect complement to the fatigue of cooking three meals a day for larger families. The end of March the weather should be warm enough in all US regions for backyard parties and family gathers so running some targeted ads for Palm Sunday or Passover. Remember those of the Jewish faith tend to avoid rice, beans, corn and other foods like lentils and edamame at Passover. So catering options for them should reflect that.
Mar 12th: 🇺🇸 National 👧 Girl Scout Day
After baseball, one could argue Girl Scout Cookies are one of America's most celebrated past times.

Mar 14th: National 🥔 Potato Chip Day
The ultimate side order to any submarine, hoagie or pick your sandwich, potato chips are undoubtedly popular. Think of using them as the perfect surprise gift item to place a thank you note on March 14th to let your customer know you appreciate them and we can promise you some return visits.
Mar 20th: National ☺️ Ravioli Day
The earliest known mention of ravioli appears in the personal letters of Francesco di Marco Datini, a merchant of Prato in the 14th century... here we are today centuries later and ravioli is a favorite amongst families and children. Easy to make and fun to eat, Ravioli can be served in dozens of different sauces and stuffed with hundreds of items.

Mar 24th: National 🐄 Cheesesteak Day
The Tyrannosaurus Rex of sandwiches celebrates it's national day towards the end of March. Sliced tri-tip or deli shaved, there are multitudes of ways to serve a cheesesteak. If you're a steakhouse, or subshop today is the day to promote your cheesesteak with a promotional tie in. In the nearly $22 billion-plus sandwich industry, there really isn't an experience that is comparable to that of walking into a local restaurant making fresh cheesesteaks.
