Nothing says a summertime bash like sliders… and sushi? At Jack’s Sliders and Sushi, you can find both miniature sized bites as well as a variety of other tiny foods.  Even though it’s rather unique to serve both sliders and sushi together, it definitely offers a fresh and interesting touch to a lunch menu.  Everyone finds it more fun to eat with their hands so why not make a day at the office a little bit more exciting by including some of these bites in your lunch menu.

Bring this classic finger food from the pool to the office with The Nugget Spot; they offer more than 10 kinds of chicken, both fried and baked! They’re easy to pop in your mouth and release a burst of flavor whether or not you choose to immerse them in a sauce.  They’ll truly make your employees have flashbacks of their childhoods, long days at the beach and relaxing afternoons at the pool.
