Storage solutions for massive sandwich order

1016 Views 8 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  panini
Hi, I am a restaurant owner based in Kathmandu, Nepal. We just got an order contract for 2200 sandwiches for an outdoor cycling event. 
There is a pit stop during the event where we are supposed to serve the sandwiches. Cyclist arriving in group eliminating the possibility of making the sandwiches as you go. 
The sandwiches are cold sub style sandwiches with a coleslaw. 
There is possibly no storage in my restaurant pantry to store 2200 sandwiches even made the day before.
I have a huge store house where this could be done but there is no refrigeration which might spoil the sandwiches (mayo in the coleslaw) next day as it is summer here and (room temperatures) are pretty high. 

Any suggestions or expect tips are much appreciated. Its an important event to pull off for my restaurant. 

Thanks in advance

Are you going to set up in Boudha? Is this a large area for a rest stop? I'm going to assume there will be a lot of people staying there for a while to recoup. Most of

the mountain bikers are not professional. Although I'm sure there will be small groups who will want to fly through.

If there is a possibility to acquire a cooler truck, that would be the way to go. I was also thinking about your sandwich. I'm not up on tradition over there as to what's on a sandwich. I put

myself in that situation and only came up with.. Prepare the meats and toppings as you would for a sandwich. Individually wrap those. These should take up a fraction of the space needed for storing prepared sandwiches. Then have your bread pre-sliced. Set up a small station and spread out some sliced rolls, unwrap the meats and wham bam. I'm thinking you can even keep the meats in anything cold and dry and an extended time. That's all I got. Oh, I ditto @berndy . Make a nice slaw without mayo. I should be acidic enough to hold. Good Luck

PS I also think a lot of these non pro casual riders are going to be easy going. They might even offer help, take it! Their raising rupees for a good cause. Unless I'm totally off on the race you're talking about.
