Owners, Karen and Peter Bloom, remember when they opened their first small catering shop in Raritan, NJ in 1985. In 1989, they moved the business to Hillsborough where it was simply called Catered Affair. Over the years the business evolved and the name changed to Catered Affair & Sandwich Station to reflect the ever-growing needs of their customers.
Over the 30 years, the whole crew at Catered Affair & Sandwich Station has been thrilled to be a main staple for the Hillsborough community. They proudly serve delicious breakfast, sandwiches, subs, triple-deckers, paninis, grilled melts and healthy fare. Of course, their “Letter R” sandwich, named for Hillsborough Raiders and local Rutgers University, is one of the most famous and popular menu items.
Keeping up with the times, a mobile app is the latest addition to help time-crunched customers skip the line and order from their phones or online. It’s been 3 years since the app was launched and has proven to be the fastest and easiest way to order, pay, grab and go! The app, simply called Catered Affair, is free and available for Apple or Android.
“We are so excited about our 30 year milestone,” says Bloom, “and to celebrate we will be having fun contests and tons of giveaways throughout the month! We have printed ‘30 year anniversary’ t-shirts to give away plus sweatshirts, long-sleeved ‘Letter R’ shirts and gift cards. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, Instagram and in-store signs so you don’t miss the fun and prizes!”
“Our strategy for success has always been simple”, says Bloom. “We, along with an unbelievable staff, combine outstanding quality, sophisticated service and consistently delicious food! We love what we do because of the wonderful friends we have made over the thirty years we have been in Hillsborough. Our walls are adorned with photos of our town’s students, the schools, the sports teams, the community. Thank you for making us such an integral part of this town’s history. We look forward to the next thirty years!”
