About In The Bag
Since 1994, INtheBAG has delivered extraordinary breakfast, lunch, and dinner to the Greater Des Moines community.
For INtheBAG, it has been about more than delivering sandwiches and catering events. It is about food that is delivered promptly and presented with flair by people who sincerely appreciate your business. In the last 20 years, INtheBAG customers have become family.
It is that spirit which drives what we do at INtheBAG. For example, we know many customers have unique dietary needs. We are always at the ready to help customize an order everyone will enjoy. We also know some customers like salads and sandwiches while others like hot chicken fajitas served with lettuce and low-carb tortillas.
It means when you place your order over the phone, you will talk with one of our team members who strives every day to create an enjoyable, positive experience for you.
And if that positive experience also means a streamlined online ordering system, we have that, too. You can place your order a few hours or even a few weeks ahead of time. It’s that personalized.
We are grateful to be part of a strong, close-knit community, and we want to give back. You’ll find we donate 25% of our gratuities to our charity of the month as part of our Charity of the Month Program and offer a 10% discount to nonprofits including places of worship, schools, and local charities. If you are curious about what is happening in the Greater Des Moines community and how you can be a part of it, subscribe to our Quick Bites newsletter here (include a sign-up option).
The desire to give back also means we provide food donations to organizations in Des Moines and why, when possible, we donate excess food to charities.
We are glad you found us! Read on to learn more about INtheBAG. Or visit us on Facebook to see what we are cooking up behind the scenes!
