Midnight lunch ideas!

Erin, on 19/April/2019 at 20:01 Posted in Wedding reception
Hello! I am wondering if anyone has ever had McDonald’s for a midnight lunch and if so how was it? We have about 200 people so would need lots of burgers, fries and nuggets and wonder what the food would taste like after being made in such large amounts.

    Oh, this sounds delish Erin!!

    Great advice from the previous posters, is there a couple of McDonald's in the area you could contact and split the large order between? This way the food may be hotter when it arrives! If there aren't multiple McDonalds, perhaps you could get some items from McDonald's (nuggets, burgers) and the fries from another place?

    I looked into McDonalds for my wedding social - the most that we could find was one location that was willing to give a 10% discount on bulk orders... which is less than the tax on the food....

    So, if money isn't an issue, I would say it's doable - but make sure you contact a few locations to see if some offer a different price than others. As for warmth/taste of food being bulk prepared, maybe you could get the cheeseburgers plain and put the toppings to the side for the guests to put the rest together themselves? (I wouldn't worry too much though as McDonalds is a classic drunk go-to and McDonald's has catered more than a couple times I'm sure.

    I don't know what your budget is but just the other day my boss decided to get Big Macs and 1/4 pounders for a lunch thing (just the burgers), he ordered 30 intotal and it cost him $210.00.

    I've seen people talk in previous discussions about letting the restaurant know in advance and perhaps pay in advance? I worked at McDonalds and a class stopped at McDonalds while they were heading home from a trip. It was helpful for my coworkers and I to know how much food would be needed and, if you know, what time you would pick the food up. Of course, with 200 people they most likely wouldn't be able to make the food all at once, unless you arranged things with more than one restaurant and then food would be more similar in temperature
