Customers can now order platters of hot or cold finger food, canapés, cooked meat, fish and sushi platters and hot main dishes such as lasagne and curry through Tesco.com. The new service can cater for events of all sizes, from business lunches and casual buffets, to formal celebrations and children’s parties – at Tesco’s usual competitive prices.
Initially available in London, all orders will be delivered from the four Dotcom stores that serve the capital in Enfield, Greenford, Aylesford and Croydon.
The website – www.tesco.com/easy-entertaining – has been designed to be convenient and easy to use when planning an event, with categories like desserts and cakes, buffet foods, party accessories, and even pre-selected party menus for customers who want to get everything they need at one click of a button.
Like the recently launched online Commuter Zone, the website offers the benefits of using Tesco.com, including access to your Favourites and clear sight of your basket and multi-buy savings. Customers can choose a convenient delivery slot which fits with their party planning schedule, with no extra delivery cost for Delivery Saver customers*.
Tesco Director of Internet Retailing Ken Towle said:
“We’re delighted to launch Easy Entertaining and think our customers will really appreciate being able to buy party food alongside their regular online grocery shop, especially as we approach the Christmas party season. Customers can get great party food at our usual low prices, delivered straight to their door. This will help to make party planning much simpler, whether it’s lunch with office colleagues or a big party for dozens of excited kids.”
