Cold: Avoid it like a Pro!

ColdCold. It happens and when your a North Idahoan (or Idahed, we’ve heard it both ways) it is immensely difficult to avoid! There is the spattering of fun winter activists. You know the lot, skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing, sledding, snowman building (a contact sport in the Deli fam) and the like. While flying down a hill at a million miles an hour, or deciding on the perfect carrot for a snowman’s nose IS fun, it loses some charm when a blistering wind accidentally blows your face off.

We hate cold.

No real way around it. Being in a lakeside (Hayden almost counts) city, we always want to be on the water. Sitting peacefully in a tube drinking some ice cold suds…it doesn’t get better! Slowly boating around the lake with the breeze in your hair? Sign us up! Summer is so warm, cozy, and delicious you can almost taste the heat.

MMMM. -Sigh-

ColdI had to go make a cup of hot chocolate. Looking outside made me cold. At The Local Deli, we strive to help you battle through the winter months with our deluxe HEATED (hot, melty, warm, inviting, toasted) sandwiches. If you haven’t been by in a while, we’ve added our Community Favorites menu that has some great hot sandwiches! We also offer several delicious soups (typically different every day) that are great for sandwich dippage, or internal heat level increases. They are also super tasty! We also make sure to crank the heat a bit to keep our customers from freezing to death. No one likes to be cold, even in a sweet deli. If you are feeling a bit depressed about the cold (and lets be real we all are) make sure and stop in for some warm food. We even promise to cheer you up with a happy smile from our staff. They all understand the hazards of life outside, and will try to brighten your day just a little bit.

Don’t freeze, eat more Local Deli. Pce

Local Deli Catering: The Skinny Version

Local Deli CateringObviously, we love sandwiches and Local Deli Catering. Freshly baked bread with still crackling bacon, fresh veggies and some ranch dressing? Yes please. The sandwich (its been around for a while now) feels quintessentially American. The customizability, mouth-to-size ratio, and overall deliciousness all help define the sandwich as real homemade food. Yes, were a bit crazy about our food.

Just a little.

We get asked about Local Deli Catering all the time. What do we offer, how quickly can we deliver, can we color coordinate with the Bridesmaids dresses, etc. The fact is we LOVE catering. Like head over heels “yes please” kind of love! Most of the time when you contact a caterer, they need a huge time notice, and really stress all the details of how/where to put their food. They need heat elements, electrical wires, and -fill in the blank- stuff. In a nutshell, the catering element of your event creates additional stress as you now have to manage what they are supposed to be doing behind the scenes!

It sucks.

Local Deli Cateringwith Local Deli catering, we really strive to make the event about what is important! Our food will arrive, immensely tasty, (just ask our Facebook fans) and ready to go. No need to worry about electrical wires or heat, it will be ready to go! If you have your own special glass plate you NEED to use, no worries! We will happily get your tasty sandwiches on there! Rather not worry about the materials? We have you covered again! We strive to make catering EASY.

All of us at The Local Deli love to party (par-tay between friends. More music, food and drinking then your average “party.” Come to a First Friday if your interested in learning how to par-tay). Events planning should be about the fun connecting with friends! At your next event, give The Local Deli a shot at your catering. Shelley and Emily love picking food choices and matching doilies to protein types (PRO TIP: everything goes great with bacon). Next time you have a family get together, party to plan, or wedding food to get without breaking the bank, let The Local Deli Catering team help you out! With our help, you might even have time to enjoy your event as a visible hostess!

Talk soon, and Par-tay on!

welcome to our blog

Welcome to our Blog!

Welcome to our Blog!

welcome to our blog

Welcome to our blog! Like our grand opening, we are excited to start communicating our company mission through our blog. We will also include give aways, helpful advice, catering information, and local events info! In this first post, we want to give you a little local deli lore! Several years ago our owner Shelly was the manager/franchisee of Caruso’s Deli in Hayden. Rather then change the menu to include pizza, she decided to focus on her delicious deli sandwiches. Years later (AKA the present) we offer a whole plethora of delicious soups, sides, and sandwiches, all with The Local Deli personal touches!

Moving forward, we are super excited to be opening our next restaurant in Rathdrum! It is a direct growth from the amazing support we have had from our Hayden customers!

So what is The Local Deli About? I mean, obviously we love tasty food, however what is our real mission? The Local Deli loves our employees. Creating jobs (especially in our current economy) is a real part of Shelly’s vision for The Local Deli locations. Helping out local families with stable reliable work brings us great pride, and we love seeing locals succeed! We are also about our community! The Local Deli supports tons of local organizations and fund raisers by providing great catering options for events and get togethers! Shelly deeply believes in giving back, and it shows in our commitment to the community!

We plan to start regular blogging so make sure and check back! Who knows, we might do a few killer give aways! If you have a question for us, or would like the Deli’s thoughts on current events, don’t feel afraid to email us! We don’t bite and love to hear from our great customers! Thanks for listening and we look forward to your feedback in the near future! Talk again soon!
