Our Story

Where It All Began

We are a kitchen, a team & a set of beliefs & values about food. We believe the best food is simple, made with great ingredients & a decent dollop of love and a lot of respect. We start making our sandwiches at 5am every day with artisan bread fresh from the bakery, sourdoughs, granary, wraps, filling them with love & respect with our delicious fillings, and wrapping & labelling them, ready for delivery to stores around Dublin City. We want our food to make you feel full, content & happy.

It’s what we do.

Simple. Real. Food

Our Story

The Fifth Child…

Our fifth child – The Delicious Food Company was born in 2005 to bridge a gap in the market for really good quality sandwiches.

All our sandwiches are made on preservative-free bread from The Bretzel Bakery, meaning the tastiest artisan sandwiches in Ireland. Our salads are award-winning.

Simplicity & freshness is core to what we produce.
Everything we produce is made with great ingredients and with lots of care & love packed with humour and delivered with a SMILE always.

We believe that our customers should have the choice to eat good and fresh, albeit the humble sandwich or a great salad – rather than mass-produced items with shelf life more important than taste.

Our customers, our suppliers & our staff are all one team, sharing common values and love of food.

“I was in the Spar shop on Dorset Street near Temple Street Children’s Hospital and the lady from your company was stocking up the sandwiches. She sold me on the idea of trying one of your artisan sandwiches and I’m so glad she did. GORGEOUS FOOD! Well done guys.”
