Oh, man. What a summer it has been.
Since the aggressive launch of Broodje Co., Broodjes & Bier’s wholesale sandwich arm, the team has introduced lunch pop-ups as a more personalized service for our customers. These pop-ups not only help Broodje Co. diversify its client base, reaching DC professionals who often haven’t heard of the Dutch-inspired sandwich company before, but also provide a huge amount of fun for staff. After countless hours in the kitchen, there’s nothing better than meeting face-to-face with customers for a delicious lunch time break. Additionally, for the organizations we work with, Broodje Co. pop-ups offer a way to provide easy and affordable lunch options to employees.
The other great sell for these events: samples! We bring our Broodje Board to each of these events and serve samples of everything for sale. After hearing a quick summary of the ingredients in each broodje, people usually try one or two samples before deciding on their lunch for the day. In addition to the sandwiches, the pop-ups also provide chips and drinks to round out the meal.
Broodje Co. has popped-up at a number of different locations all over the city, from Chinatown to Downtown and Shaw. We’re always on the search for new locales, so if you’d like to see Broodje Co. pop-up at your office, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

Spring is here and broodjes are sprouting up across the city!
You’ve supported us as we’ve spent this last year testing our recipes and building industry experience at the Silver Spork. Since our move to Union Kitchen in February, Broodjes & Bier has started wholesaling our Broodje Co. sandwiches to five partners in DC and VA.
Specifically, you can now get your broodje fix here:
- Chinatown Coffee Co.,
- Vital Vittles at Georgetown University,
- Saxby’s Coffee – Ronald Reagan Building in DC, and
- St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub in Del Ray, VA.
Upping our production has been a fun and exciting challenge. From coordinating 4am bread deliveries to building positive relationships with our partners and vendors, we’re seeing first hand the mechanics of a growing business. We’re even gearing up to make our first hire for the Production team!
After an amazingly fun and enjoyable year with the Silver Spork family, it’s time for us to make the pilgrimage to NE.
On a related and similarly exciting note, new kitchen plus new sandwiches = BROODJES CATERING
DETAILS: NO delivery fee. We’ll bring them to your doorstep, free of charge.
THE MENU: BB Catering Menu
Ah, hello, blogosphere. Tis been awhile.
We’re popping up!
After 5 months of slinging our five sandwich menu at The Silver Spork, we’re amped to announce our inaugural sandwich and bier extravaganza: Prost! A Sandwich & Bier Pop!
If you haven’t visited The Silver Spork patio, there is no better opportunity than Friday, September 20th. It truly is one of the best outdoor spaces on Capitol Hill.
A bit of inside scoop:
Still, we couldn’t envision synthesizing our sandwich roster to a small menu and asking you, our customers, to choose just a single broodje from an already concentrated offering. We can hardly make the choice ourselves.
At 5 months old, we’re youthful and chock-full of energy. Our team builds new sandwiches daily and just as often sends our beloved broodjes to the recipe graveyard, never to see the light of a sandwich lovers hungry grin again.
We’re hungry for you to try the multitude of what we have to offer and impatient for your feedback. (We literally hope you’re hungry too!)
So, we’re organizing Prost! a bit differently.
The focus for this event will be treating you to a greater selection of our menu — tapas style. Of course, we’ll keep the classics on hand like the Vondel Park and Paradiso. We’re also going to introduce you to some of our latest obsessions like our Guyanese braised beef broodje and deli-style roast lamb.
Hopefully, in doing so, we’ll better introduce our point of view AND get some unscripted feedback in the process.
Prost! will be an incredibly fun and exciting event So, please RSVP, buy your early bird tickets, and share with your networks! After all, broodjes and biers are only as delicious when enjoyed with close friends 🙂
Check out the flyer for our inaugural sandwich & bier pop-up, PROST!
Also, be sure to cop your Early Bird Special tickets now! The special runs the duration of the program (8pm-11pm) and allows you to circumvent the $3 entrance fee (and grab another bier, instead). See you there!
