Holiday Deli & Ham Co. Opens August 30 in Belz’s Peabody Place

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Aug. 26, 2004) - From a hearty breakfast to a sweet afternoon snack, Holiday Deli & Ham Co. is ready to meet the needs of hungry downtowners with a new location in Peabody Place. The company’s fourth Memphis restaurant will open August 30 on Main Street in the Pembroke Building.

“Holiday Deli & Ham Co. is a great addition to an already bustling Peabody Place,” said Andrew J. Groveman, senior vice president of Belz. “The laid back atmosphere and fantastic food make it a place that downtown workers, residents and visitors will enjoy.”

Locally owned and operated since 1994, Holiday Deli & Ham Co. is known for their Southern specialties and extensive catering menu. Everything from boxed lunches to party trays can be ordered via the company’s catering service, and there are even special platters for Atkins dieters. Everything on the menu is also available for take-out or delivery.

“When I opened this business, my first delivery was downtown, so I feel like Holiday has been downtown for a while,” said Trey Jordan, owner of Holiday Deli & Ham Co. “We chose Peabody Place because we have a great relationship with Belz in two other locations and the excitement of downtown,especially the revitalization of the south end of Main Street, makes it a natural fit for Holiday.”To celebrate the opening of its newest location, Holiday Deli & Ham Co. will run special offers during the month of September. One offer is a pimento cheese giveaway for downtown businesses.

All Holiday Deli & Ham Co. locations will participate in the Big Deli Classic, the world’s largest paper football tournament, on October 5 and 12. Proceeds will benefit a charity and the winner will receive two tickets to the Super Bowl.
